The INFO-1 is a 2 1/4” sunlight readable multifunction color display instrument. The INFO-1 has the following features:
The INFO-1 is capable of measuring g-forces exerted in an aircraft up to +-16g. The INFO-1 also has the facility to record the maximum positive and negative g-forces encountered (typically during a flight) in permanent memory, with a password protected reset facility. It also features two independent cycle counters to capture the amount of times a preset force has been exceeded. The INFO-1 is able to measure g-forces even if the instrument is not mounted exactly on the vertical axis of the aircraft.
UTC and Local Time display
The INFO-1 is capable of displaying both UTC (as known as Zulu time) and local time to facilitate ordinary ATC time reporting. Time is maintained by an internal lithium battery which can be replaced by the user.
The INFO-1 can display a slip indicator. The slip indicator can be disabled in the menu system.
Battery Voltage, Current and Charge display (Current Requires Magnetic Current Sensor)
The INFO-1 can be used to monitor your aircraft’s battery power supply. The INFO-1 is very useful in determining your battery’s health, charging status, as well as the current load consumption of your aircraft. The INFO-1 can be used in both 12V and 24V aircraft and can measure voltages up to 30V DC.
The INFO-1 uses the MGL Avionics magnetic field or active current shunt to measure the aircraft’s current load. The INFO-1 contains a programmable low/high voltage alarm to automatically detect bad batteries and alternator failures. The maximum and minimum voltage reached is also recorded in permanent memory.
OAT can be shown in either degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit. The INFO-1 also contains a programmable low/high OAT alarm. The maximum and minimum OAT reached is also recorded in permanent memory. Oat Probe included.
Flight Timer & Flight log
The INFO-1 provides a 50 entry flight log that stores the start time and duration of each of the last 50 flights. The flight timer can either be started using a front push button or from a remote input.
Stopwatch, Countdown Timer & Alarm
Stopwatch and timers can be operated simultaneously to a programmable alarm, making the INFO-1 particularly suitable for sport flying competitions.
Trick little unit, but my only beef is the OAT probe. Probe is cheaply made and the wires are thin and hard to splice. I have several old threaded probes, but the resistance was too far off to calibrate. Ended up stuffing the probe in a vent tube.
Excluding the cables of the unit this weighs approx 0.26 lbs or 120 grams
These will have the Large 1.8 high-res 160 x 128, sunlight readable, color, wide viewing angle, TFT LCD display.
Per MGL: the sensors will need to be purchased separately.
Approx. 73mA @ 13.8V (backlight highest setting), 33mA @13.8V (backlight lowest setting). A 1 AMP breaker can be used.
No. The MGL Vega series is not FAA Approved. It is intended for use in experimental aircraft only.
Per the manufacturer website, it is the range of +-16g. It records the maximum positive and negative g-forces encountered (typically during a flight) in permanent memory, with a password protected reset facility.
