VT-2000 - High Tech Mode-S Transponder
Our VT-2000 is a modern Mode-S/ADS-B Transponder in 6.25" rack format. It can be installed as a direct replacement for the popular Bendix-king KT76 / KT76A/C series of transponders without any changes to pre-existent wiring and mounting trays. The integrated keyboard makes VT-2000 the most easy to use and operate transponder we know of: Squawks are entered amazingly fast and easy.
VT-2000 can be simply installed as a 1:1 retrofit replacement for KT-76 or KT-76A/C Transponders. A special mounting tray is available for new installations. You can either use the integrated internal altitude encoder (alticoder) or connect VT-2000 to any kind of existent alticoder in your aircraft (parallel and serial).
Keyboard based input requires significantly less operation time than other solutions. You can directly enter a Squawk given by ATC without writing it down. Changing mode or using the IDENT function is just as easy as pushing a button.
Use ADS-B today
VT-2000 is capable of sending out ADS-B data without modifications. ADS-B data can already be utilized by many collision warning systems. The only thing required is the connection of a normal NMEA RS232 GPS-source which is available in nearly any aircraft.
