A few questions related to the KGX 150 :

  1. Can this unit be paired with the KT-76C transponder?
  2. What will the Wi-Fi option cost?
  3. With our configuration, what antennas will need to be installed to meet the ADSB-Out requirements?
  4. Will an additional antenna be required to facilitate ADS-B-In?

There are a few things to be aware of with all UAT installations. These units require a control device and a switch to place them in air/ground mode. The switch is not a major issue and is a minor cost. However, the controller is additional if the aircraft is not already equipped with a transponder and/or display (MX20 for example).

As you’ll see below, yes, the KT-76C will pair with the unit via the antennas. Basically the UAT will sense the XPDR. This will enable you to send the Mode A and IDENT information to the UAT unit. However, you are still required per the FAA to have a way to know your ADS-B status. If a suitable display such as the Garmin MX20, Aspen EFD1000 or the KSN 770 is not installed, then a remote control unit is required. The KGX Control Panel list price is currently $619. Depending on the aircraft and the kind of flying, there are a lot of factors and options to consider.

  1. Can this unit be paired with the KT-76C transponder?
    • Yes
  2. What will the Wi-Fi option cost?
    • The Wi-Fi option will run around $349 list for parts.
  3. With our configuration, what antennas will need to be installed to meet the ADS-B-Out requirements?
    • Per the STC, you will be required one external WAAS/GPS antenna and at least one UAT antenna.
  4. Will an additional antenna be required to facilitate ADS-B-In?
    • No, as long as the unit purchased is the transceiver. However, you will need a suitable display for the "In" without the Wi-Fi.
Yes, anytime a transponder is removed or replaced an altitude correlation between what the transponder is reporting and what is displayed on the altimeter needs to be performed. This is outlined in FAA CFR Part 91.413. This regulation indicates that following any installation or maintenance of a transponder where data correspondence error could be introduced, the integrated system has been tested, inspected, and found to comply with paragraph (c), appendix E. Furthermore, these references indicate that an integration test between the altitude reporting equipment and transponder system must be conducted.

For complete information, please refer to these FAA regulations or contact Southeast Aerospace Tech Support team at shop@seaerospace.com.

The VFR code can be programmed from the front panel of the KT-76C. Please follow these steps:

1. Select SBY (Standby) on the control knob
2. Enter the desired VFR code with ident code pushbuttons (0-7)
3. Press the "VFR" button while holding in the "IDT" button
Note: Pressing and holding the "VFR" button for 2 seconds will retrieve the last non-VFR 4096 code

Southeast Aerospace exchanges are based on the return of an undamaged, economically repairable core unit with identical part number as the unit shipped to the customer. An "economically repairable" core is defined as one where the cost to repair/overhaul (or Repair Cap) does not exceed 80% of the original SV/OH exchange price billed. Should the Repair Cap exceed 80%, the customer will be billed the additional amount. In the event this amount exceeds the Outright Price for the unit, the customer would only be billed the difference between the Outright Price and SV/OH Exchange Price with the core returned as-is to the customer.

Here is an example of such a transaction:

$1000 Exchange Price charged to customer
$1000 x .8 = $800 Maximum Allowable core repair charge or Repair Cap

$2000 Cost to repair core unit
- $800 Less Core repair cap
---------
$1200 Additional billing amount.

2200.00 Total Cost of transaction

Please Note:
SEA offers exchange on new items as well. However, repair cap as indicated above is still based on SV/OH exchange price.

Negotiating the exchange price of a unit only limits the allowable repair cap for the core unit. Southeast Aerospace's exchange transactions are based on the return of economically repairable core unit. Once the core is received and evaluated, the core repair cost incurred by SEA cannot exceed 80% of the original exchange price. That is, it cannot cost SEA more than 80% of the original OH/SV exchange price collected from the customer. Therefore, when and if an SEA exchange price is discounted, there is a risk that additional charges may be assessed once the core is returned and evaluated.

For more information, please refer to these other Exchange FAQs

Although some manufacturers call out specific transponder antennas in their installation manuals, almost any transponder antenna can be used with any transponder. Various models are available based on the screw hole pattern desired and the speed & drag considerations based on the aircraft type.
 


For smaller general aviation aircraft, Southeast Aerospace recommends the stub type AV-22 or CI-101 antenna.

 

 

For medium to larger aircraft, Southeast Aerospace recommends the blade type CI-105 or AV-74 antenna.

 


Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the installer or installing agency to determine what antenna is suitable for the aircraft application.

 

 

 

Much of the KT-76C unit includes circuit boards assembled with surface mounted components or SMCs. By nature, surface mount devices or SMDs contain much smaller components with tighter placement on both sides of the board. Compared to circuit board assemblies with traditional through-hole mounting, SMDs can be much more difficult to repair on the component level given to small size and lead spacing of the SMCs.
The original KT-76A mounting rack Part Number is 047-03898-0002. The rack included with a new KT-76C is Part Number 047-09628-0004. Either unit will fit into either rack. Also, as a direct, slide-in replacement for the KT-76A, the KT-76C utilizes the same connector in the same rack position as the KT-76A.

Rack P/N 047-09628-0004 was also used with the KT-70 and KT-71 transponders. Therefore, the 047-09628-0004 rack included additional features such as a port for cooling fan connection and space for a configuration module.
