Part# 11-16582
MFR Model# ALT-6

Overview

The ALT-6 is a 3 1/8 sunlight readable encoding altimeter and a wide range vertical speed indicator.

The altimeter contains an internal high accuracy 24 bit digital altitude sensor which calculates altitude from -1000 ft up to a maximum of 35000 ft. The ALT-6 outputs various formatted RS232 serial data protocols compatible with serial input transponders such as that from Garmin, Magellan, Northstar, Trimble, Microair etc. The altimeter can display altitude in feet or meters and local pressure can be set in millibars or inches of mercury.

The VSI indicator can be displayed in either feet/minute (ft/min) or meters/second (m/s). The VSI can be calibrated by the user once the instrument has been installed in the aircraft.

The ALT-6 also features a user settable altitude bug and an encoder test function. Please see ALT-7 (P/N: 11-16583) if a built-in parallel altitude output is required. Otherwise, the ALT-6 provides a parallel Gillham code interface when used in conjunction with the MGL Avionics CNV-ALT.

Q: So what other parts/senders do I need to make these gauges work? MGL ALT/VSI

This does not require senders as it connects to the static system and requires a harness for power.

Q: Is this MGL Blaze altimeter / VSI instrument stc certified or TSOd?

No, it is only for use in experimental / non-certificated aircraft.
