Yes, you still need an altitude encoder. These units come with all the required connector kits. The existing antenna cable should be compatible, but you will want to confirm that it is BNC male to BNC male. The Stratus 2S pairs wirelessly via Bluetooth so no other accessories are required.
No, per Appareo the ESGi unit is not compatible with the Avidyne 540 unit.
Yes, part number 11-14857 will provide you with the 2i module, interface cable, power/data cable, and connectors.
For certified aircraft installations, the unit will need to be purchased and installed by a certified avionics installer. We can only sell this unit for experimental aircraft installations at this time.
No, but, due to contractual arrangements with the manufacturer, we can only offer the ESGi unit to experimental aircraft operators.
The Stratus needs to be mounted using its own rack. The bezel dimensions are 6.38" wide, by 1.69" in height. The rack to be installed is 6.32" wide, and 1.65" tall.
We recommend the ACK or Trans-Cal encoders for this set up. This unit will accept either a parallel or RS232 altitude encoder input. A transponder antenna will be required such as a TED (pn: 11-17995) or RAMI (pn: av-22). Coax cables will be required to interface the transponder to your gps antenna (included with esgi) and transponder antennas, and a wiring harness to connect the unit to your aircraft power.
No, the Stratus 2i is designed for use with the Stratus ESG transponder.
Yes, it will show both weather and traffic.
At this time Appareo is not on the list of compatible ADS-B products.
