Detailed Description

uAvionix skyBeacon
ADS–B Out / WAAS GPS / Altimeter
LED Nav Light / LED Strobe

General Description

skyBeacon is a 2020 compliant, Class B1S ADS–B UAT transmitter and WAAS GPS integrated into a wing tip position light. With its ease of installation and configuration, fast return to service, and no panel modifications or new transponder required, this ADS–B Out solution is the most innovative and cost–effective solution yet.

The skyBeacon features a UAT (978MHz) transmitter and specially designed blade antenna that minimizes installation errors and antenna placement issues. A built–in WAAS GPS provides rule compliant position data for ADS–B transmission with no additional wiring or external GPS antenna mounting. The skyBeacon’s power transcoder decodes replies from legacy Mode C and Mode S transponders so that a new transponder is not required.

Additionally, the integrated altitude encoder does not require connection to the aircraft static pressure system. Instead, skyBeacon benefits from being mounted in an ideal altitude sensing location, and contains Continuous Calibration™ technology. This patent pending technology automatically and continuously calibrates the integrated altitude encoder for correspondence with the aircraft transponder’s altitude encoder, allowing compliant operations in remote and challenging environments. An extremely efficient LED position and anticollision lighting complete the skyBeacon package.

Features

Goof–Proof Configuration

skyBeacon Goof Proof Configuration

The skyBeacon mobile application will automatically configure the ICAO address, emitter type, aircraft length, width and GPS offsets by accessing the aircraft registration information stored online.












Installation Procedure

skyBeacon is a wingtip, forward, left position light. The assembly should be mounted as far outboard on the aircraft as practical, parallel to the vertical and horizontal centerlines of the aircraft. Ensure that when mounted, the fin and top of the assembly are free from obstructions.
• Remove the existing left position light.
• Detach the power wire(s).
• Connect the red wire to the switched power wire.
• skyBeacon may be grounded to the aircraft structure via the mounting screws. However, it may be necessary to connect the black wire to the battery ground.
• Connect the yellow wire to the strobe wiring, the strobe power supply must be bypassed. Connecting skyBeacon to the strobe power supply will damage the device.
• Mount skyBeacon using the three supplied 6-32 screws.
• Changes to the existing position light circuit breaker rating are not required.
