MGL Avionics Vega 2.1/4" colour instruments
Vega Single New generation smart singles.
The Stratomaster Vega range consists of twelve 2 1/4" color display based instruments (some still to be released).
Using a high resolution color graphics display, these instruments provide excellent daylight readability, even in direct sunlight.
In addition they all have built in backlighting making them easy to read at night time.
They include a rotary control plus 2 independent keys for easy menu navigation and to access specific instrument features.
All engine monitoring Vega instruments have the ability to interface to a MGL Avionics RDAC unit.

AHRS1
AHRS1 artificial horizon and magnetic compass display
The AHRS1 is a 2.1/4 sunlight readable color display instrument providing a display for an artificial horizon reference system (AHRS), an advanced digital compass, or both depending on which sensor packages is connected.
The AHRS1 can be setup to display the following:
  • Compass with optional slip indicator (requires MGL Avionics SP6 sensor package)
  • Horizon with optional slip, turn indicator & G-Force (requires MGL Avionics SP7/9 sensor package)
  • Turn and bank indicator (requires MGL Avionics SP7/9 sensor package)
  • Combined compass and horizon display with bank indicator, optional slip indicator & G-Force (requires MGL Avionics SP6 & SP7/9 sensor package)

FF4
FF4 fuel computer
The FF4 is a 2 1/4 sunlight readable color display instrument intended for efficient monitoring of fuel related information for single or dual fuel tanks.
The FF4 has many display configurations based on single/dual flow senders, single/dual level senders and a fuel pressure sender.
Full functionality is available with a fuel flow and level sender or only with a fuel flow sender using calculated fuel levels based on fuel usage.
Differential fuel flow calculations are also supported for fuel return systems. Fuel injector systems are also supported.
Standard automotive fuel level senders can be used, even with odd shaped tanks due to a comprehensive, multi-point calibration system.
Most fuel flow senders can be used as the K-factor of the sender can be entered into the system for simple calibration.
MGL Avionics supplies a lightweight dual range fuel flow sender that is ideally suited for the FF4. Fuel flow senders from other manufactures (e.g. Floscan) are equally suitable.
In addition, the FF4 can use the actual ground speed from a RS232 NMEA enabled GPS receiver to determine fuel range.
The FF4 can also be interfaced via the CAN bus to an external RDAC unit (Remote Data Acquisition Unit). This allows for easier installation as the RDAC unit is normally mounted in the engine compartment.

RPM1
RPM1 Universal Engine/Rotor RPM indicator
The RPM1 is a 2 1/4 sunlight readable color display instrument providing two universal RPM inputs to measure engine and/or rotor RPM.
The display can be configured to display single or dual RPM or it can be configured to display engine and rotor %RPM as used in helicopters and gyroplanes.
The RPM1 has a maximum values display screen plus a handy magneto check function to easily diagnose magneto problems.
The RPM1 includes a number of timers- Hobbs meter (password protected), engine running timer, flight timer, programmable maintenance timer
The RPM1 can be interfaced via the CAN bus to an external RDAC unit (Remote Data Acquisition Unit). This allows for easier installation as the RDAC unit is normally mounted in the engine compartment.

TC4
TC4 4-Channel Thermocouple (EGT/CHT) indicator
The TC4 is a 2 1/4" Sunlight readable 4 channel thermocouple color display instrument.
Instrument can be configured for 5 different temperature display screens.
The display can be configured to group EGTs and CHTs to common settings or each thermocouple channel can be independently displayed with individual programmable high alarm and probe type.
The TC4 also has a trend graph and maximum values display screen.
The TC4s high accuracy is due to its built in thermocouple linearization curves and cold junction compensation techniques.
Temperature probes can be common J, K or E type thermocouple probes as used in CHT and EGT senders.
Temperatures can be displayed in degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit from -100C to 1200C (-148F to 2192F).
The TC4 also features a built in engine leaning facility which allows the pilot to optimize the fuel mixture according to peak EGT temperatures as well as a cruise mode facility to provide instant identification of changing EGT/CHT trends.
The TC4 can also be interfaced via the CAN bus to an external RDAC unit (Remote Data Acquisition Unit).
This allows for easier installation as the RDAC unit is normally mounted in the engine compartment.
