The STRIKE FINDER® Digital Weather Avoidance System detects and analyzes the electrical activity emanating from thunderstorms within a 200 nautical mile (nm) radius of the aircraft. A unique graphic display plots an accurate, reliable and easily-interpreted picture of electrical activity, that you can use to circumnavigate the hazards associated with thunderstorms.
Traditionally, weather mapping systems require connection to the aircraft's slaved compass system to maintain correct data orientation through heading changes. Recognizing that not all aircraft are equipped with a slaved compass system, Insight developed the Stabilization Module. The Stabilization Module provides data to the STRIKE FINDER®, enabling displayed lightning strike information to rotate relative to heading changes. Operation of the Stabilization Module is automatic; no field configuration or calibration are required.
The revolutionary Stabilitzation Module's features:
Internal installation only
Eliminates the need for a slaved compass system
Is a totally self-contained sensor and data processor
Contains no rotating gyro
Gone forever are those periodic overhauls that are necessary with common rotating gyro systems
The Stabilization Module contains all solid state components; there are no moving parts. New software algorithms process data from the enclosed sensors to determine heading change. Insight has developed this state-of-the-art stabilization system, by integrating both the motion sensor and the data processor into one miniature module. Benefits include reduction in cost, complexity and weight of a conventional system.
Does the Strike Finder 2000L come with an STC and can it be installed by my mechanic?
We can only sell this Strike Finder to experimental aircraft as certified aircraft must go to an Insight dealer to have installed.
