Astronics corporation a subsidiary of Astonics Max- Viz's Engine Fuel System Components Nonaircraft, releases their latest EVS (enhanced vision system) going by the X1 + HR. This system is said to intensify vision for innovators building and experimenting aircrafts at home. Installed with a long wave infrared thermal imager with electronic zoom. The purpose behind this well designed system is to increase the amount that is seen more thorough and detected.
“Enables pilots to see temporary obstructions such as wildlife and construction barriers, which may not be in synthetic vision database.”
The X1 +HR innovative technologies has won them a spot at the EAA Air Venture, the Experimental Aircraft Association event which will be held in Oshkosh Wisconsin on the 25 through the 29th of June 2016. Only weighting as little as 1.2 pounds for lighter traveling and a more agile invention. Often having problems seeing through slight obstructions the EVS combats the most in the toughest conditions.
“According to Astronics, the EVS also enhances daytime and nighttime visibility up to 10 times further in conditions such as smoke, haze or light fog.”
Much like similar models such as Garmin G500, G600, G1000, Avidyne R9, Bendix King KMD-850, AvMap EKP-V, Flipper, Rosen monitors and EFBs this EVS displays a 640 x 480 pixel resolution long waved uncooled thermal camera. Great Compatibility with any source that displays and accepts NTSC NTSC or PAL/Analog RS-170 signals. Or PAL/ Analog RS-170 signals. With controls having single pin on its control switches allows maximum mobility. Including a horizontal field of view including 45°, 69°and 90°angles. Priced at approximately 18000 and is manufactured and designed with a solid state technology which means no routine maintenance is required. This new model seems to be almost indestructible with all its new attributes including its metal fairing design. The new system has a metal fairing design, a Composite Video signal format (NTSC or PAL), selectable white-hot/black-hot polarity and is DO-160G compliant. The integral window heaters permit operation in all conditions with a temperature operating environment from -55° C to +70° C.
