Microair Avionics is pleased to announce the EC2002 altitude encoder. The EC2002 will accurately report the aircraft’s altitude from -1000 to +35,000ft. The altitude output will be via the 10 line Gillham “Gray” code.
The EC2002’s accuracy has been measured as a 40 foot drift over 35,000 feet. The EC2002 will have the lowest power requirements of any altitude encoder today. The EC2002 will have a typical current consumption of 10 – 90mA, this makes the EC2002 the logical choice for all battery only operators.
The EC2002’s small size and light weight make installation very simple. The chassis is flanged, and is predrilled with mounting holes for easy attachment. The connections for the EC2002 consist of the well know DB-15 electrical connector with pin assignments identical to many existing encoders, and a 1/8” NPT fitting which is an industry standard for aircraft equipment. These connections make the EC2002 compatible with all ATC transponders currently available.
