California - MGL Avionics is proud to announce integration of
the Sandia Aerospace STX
165R Remote Mode-C transponder with the following EFIS systems
for Experimental and Light-Sport Aircraft:
Avionics iEFIS Touchscreen
is a low weight, low cost, 200 Watt remote mount Mode-C transponder. Through
just 2 data wires, the MGL Avionics EFIS is able to display transponder
status, send encoded altitude to the STX 165R, control its mode
(OFF/STBY/ON/ALT), adjust Squawk code and Ident.
Avionics believes in this elegant and affordable way of meeting the FAA
transponder requirements in the US, where only Mode-C is required for
recreational Part 91 flight. And, the ability to mount the transponder closer to
its antenna and further away from other avionics in the aircraft is also an
advantage for homebuilders trying to lay out a clean and interference-free
165R retails for approximately $1,550, making it a lower cost option than many
transponders. It weighs 1.16 lbs, uses 200mA of power and has a small size:
3.5"H x 1.8"W x 6.9"L.
XTreme EFIS / STX 165R integration is shown as an example

the Transponder function is selected, the user can change modes, select squawk
code, select preset VFR code and Ident.
Avionics' mission is to provide top-performing flight instrumentation at all
levels at affordable prices for the Experimental and LSA markets, with the
express aim of helping to lower the overall cost of aircraft ownership and
private flight. MGL Avionics have sold tens of thousands of instruments since
2001. The current product line includes large and small screen EFISs, the first
Touchscreen EFIS in the Experimental world, a full range of both 2 1/4" and 3
