Part #: 71-2460

Model: TAS600




TAS for Single Engine Entry Level A/C

Part Number :

TAS600 Series
  • Dual Antenna Traffic Advisory Systems
  • Based on technology originally developed for air-transport TCAS
  • Four different dual-antenna TAS systems, designed for type of aircraft
  • Detect and actively interrogate other aircraft transponders within range
  • Designed to meet the specific needs of each class of aircraft, providing a full 30-second decision time at a closure rate of up to 1200 knots
  • Real-time traffic monitoring and advisories - not radar-coverage limited & operates independently of ground-based systems
  • Fully ADS-B upgradeable (RTCA DO-260B) with Target Correlation & Long-Range Target Display with ADS-B "In" upgrade
  • Display the surrounding traffic on compatible display systems
  • Provides audible and visual alerts in the event of potential traffic conflict
  • Provides a graphical overlay view and traffic depiction with TCAS symbology on display systems from over 15 different manufactures including Avidyne's Entegra Release 9 and EX Series MFDs, Garmin's G1000 and 400/500 series, and displays from Honeywell, Aspen, Rockwell Collins, Chelton, Sandel, Avalex, and more
  • 30 maximum targets displays, 50 targets tracked and active interrogation
  • Provides three levels of alert
  • Each alert provides an altitude separation number and arrow indicating climbing or descending rate of 500 feet per minute or greater
  • Three alerts include:
    • Other Traffic (OT) - depicted as hollow Cyan or White Diamond beyond 6nm in range and has altitude greater than ±1200 feet relative to your aircraft
    • Proximity Alert (PA) - depicted as solid Cyan or White Diamond withing 6nm in range and has altitude within ±1200 feet, but is not considered a collision threat
    • Traffic Alert (TA) - depicted as solid Yellow Circle & automated voice alert is activated when intercept course is within 30 seconds, less than .55 nm and less than ±800 ft
  • Heads-up audible position alert
  • TAS600 Series System Models include:
    • TAS600 - entry-level, single-engine piston aircraft 7nm Range, 3,500' vertical separation max & 18,500' service ceiling
    • TAS605 - mid-performance aircraft & rotorcraft 13nm Range, 5,500' vertical separation max & 55,000' service ceiling Accepts ARINC 429 Heading
