The KTX2 mode S transponder is like all Dittel Avionik a highly efficient device. During the development the following parameters have been taken in account:
• low weight of only 360 g
• minimal power consumption
• low cost
These parameters are the argument especially for gliders, ultralight aircraft and balloons, to be equipped with the KTX2. The current consumption of a Mode-S transponder is generally an indication which depends on numerous of parameters. In Mode S operation in busy airspace it can cause a high rate of queries per minute. In this case, the transponder will respond accordingly and frequently increasing the total energy consumption. In the technical data we provide to you data you can trust when you designing a battery-operated system.
Simplified set up procedure.
