KN-62 Image shown is KN-64 due to similarities in appearance between units.
  • 1.3" high flat-pack, DME unit
  • 200-channel receiver
  • Features simultaneous gas discharge display of distance, groundspeed and time-to-station
  • Can be channeled through almost any NAV receiver or tuned directly with its own frequency selection knobs
  • No remote channeling adapters needed
  • All solid-state transmitter provides 100 watts nominal power output
  • All channeling done electronically using a single crystal digital frequency synthesizer
  • Operates on any DC voltage from 11 to 33 volts without adapters or power converters
  • No external cooling is required since it draws only 15 watts of power
  • Same as KN-62A except KN-62 not TSO'd

The data bus for the KDI-572 /573/574 indicators is available from the KN-62/62A/64 but there is no 192 volt output from these DME units to light the display of these DME indicators.
The differences between the KN-62, KN-62A, and KN-64 units are the TSO and output power ratings. The KN-62 is not TSO'd and has 100 watts nominal power output. The KN-62A is TSO'd and has 100 watts nominal power output. The KN-64 is not TSO'd and has 50 watts nominal power output.
Yes, but in most cases, the DB30 adapter from Garmin AT is necessary. The SL30 does not output a standard DME format in relation to most vintage and standard DME systems. The DB30 takes the format from the SL30 and allows for the interface to King and Collins DME units. Some of these interfaces include BCD, 2x5 code, and Slip Code. It should be noted that the DB30 2x5 tuning interface is not compatible with the ARC/Cessna RTA-476A or Narco DME transceivers.
While external suppression should be connected when a GTX-327 is installed into an aircraft with a DME, the GTX-327 suppression input/output is not compatible with the Bendix/King KN-62, KN-64, and KNS-80. These DMEs have an output only suppression port and can be damaged by the GTX-327 mutual suppression output. Therefore, the suppression pin should be left open. If the suppression line is connected between the GTX-327 and above King DME units then the DME will appear to be inoperative, display will be blank and will not transmit.

The part number for the terminal contact pin that is used on most Silver Crown units is 030-01107-0000. Previously, Honeywell (Bendix/King) offered them in preset amounts based on the unit that were being used with (ex. 030-01107-0064 for the KX-155). Currently, you simply purchase the amount of -0000 pins required.

As of 2010, the List Price for each contact pin is $5.98. Therefore, in most cases, it is less expensive to buy the entire unit installation kit.

Even though the KN-62 is a higher power DME, supply and demand factors relate to the market pricing for the KN-62 vs. KN-64. In addition, the KN-62 is an older unit and therefore has reliability factors that need to be considered.
