Description

Overview

The GAD 43 adapter unit offers enhanced autopilot interface capabilities for the G600/G500 TXi flight display systems. It enables AHRS digital attitude/heading reference to be used with selected autopilots in place of costly-to-maintain ADI gyro indicators.

It Thinks Like an Autopilot

Providing analog attitude information for use with third-party autopilot systems, the GAD 43 adapter interfaces with the Garmin GDU 620 panel display for configuration and alerting, and with the GRS 77 remote AHRS unit for attitude, heading, and yaw input information. Thus, for attitude-based autopilots, the GAD 43 can emulate the system’s gyro interfaces (such as the familiar KI-256) with far more reliable AHRS data. Which, typically, allows the existing ADI or attitude gyro to be removed and replaced on the panel with a smaller and more affordable attitude indicator as one’s backup instrumentation.

Enjoy the Simplicity of Industry Standard Interfaces

The GAD 43 is designed as an open architecture system that uses typical XYZ, ARINC 429 and RS-232 interfaces. The GAD 43 also includes analog radar stabilization signals, bootstrap heading output, and a baro altitude correction interface.

The GAD 43e adapter unit offers enhanced autopilot interface capabilities for the G600/G500 TXi flight display systems. Like the GAD 43, the GAD 43e can enable AHRS digital altitude/heading reference with selected autopilots in place of costly-to-maintain ADI gyro indicators. The GAD 43e can also interface to analog VOR/LOC/GS receivers, and functions as an altitude preselector and vertical speed controller when interfaced with compatible autopilots. It will even enable the display of marker beacon lamps, DME distance, synchro ADF bearing and analog radar altitude on your G500/600 TXi. These new interface capabilities work to reduce the workload of the pilot.

Add Autopilot Interface to Your Installation

Providing analog attitude information for use with a wider array of third-party autopilot systems, the GAD 43e adapter interfaces with the G500/600 flight display for configuration and alerting, including the GRS 77 remote AHRS unit for attitude, heading, and yaw input information. Thus, for attitude-based autopilots, the GAD 43e can emulate the system’s gyro interfaces (such as the familiar KI-256) with far more reliable AHRS data. This typically allows the existing ADI or attitude gyro to be removed and replaced on the panel with a smaller and more affordable attitude indicator as one’s backup instrumentation.

The GAD 43e allows owners to keep their existing analog NAV radios and display VOR/LOC/GS on their G600/G500 TXi flight display system. When interfaced to eligible autopilots, the GAD 43e functions as an altitude preselector and vertical speed controller. It also enables the G600/G500 TXi flight display system to incorporate marker beacon lamps, DME indicators, synchro ADF bearing pointers and analog radar altimeter indicators.
