What is the difference between the T2000ADSB and the T2000SFL?
Although both transponders are Class 1 transponders, the T2000ADSB is an ADSB Out compliant device and the T2000SFL is not. The T2000ADSB Transponder also includes an inbuilt GPS position source and altimeter, all in one compact unit for seamless integration of ADSB Out messaging of aircraft vector information.
Can I upgrade my existing T2000SFL to the new T2000ADSB?
Yes! The T2000ADSB has been specifically designed with an upgradable option for existing T2000SFL customers. The new T2000ADSB Transponder is only 16mm longer but otherwise has the same physical dimensions as the T2000SFL and can therefore be installed without the need for additional cockpit modifications. Upgrading your existing T2000SFL is a very cost effective way of implementing an ADSB Out compliant solution for your aircraft.
Is a Mode S transponder a mandated requirement for all controlled airspace?
No. Although Mode S transponders offer some benefits for larger aircraft and may be mandated in the future, they are not currently mandated for all airspaces by all countries. Rules regarding mandates for Mode A/C, Mode S and ADSB vary significantly across different countries. In Australia as an example, the current requirement for aircraft operating in controlled airspace (other than within the airspace of the major international airports) is a Mode A/C transponder.
If operating IFR or above FL290 then you must also have ADSB Out. ADSB Out makes your aircraft electronically visible to other aircraft and enhances see and avoid for VFR flights. We encourage all owners to consider the T2000ADSB Transponder as a cost effective ADSB Out option that achieves the same safety outcomes of a more costly Mode S equivalent solution.
If I upgrade my existing T2000SFL, will I need a new electrical harness?
No! The new T2000ADSB Transponder is a true ‘plug-and-play’ upgrade option and your existing harness will fit without the need for any modification.
Is the new T2000ADSB easy to use?
Yes! The T2000ADSB Transponder retains the same human machine interface as its T2000SFL predecessor. The combination of easy to use dial and push button controls, optimises menu selection and is ideal for in flight control.
How long will it take to upgrade my T2000SFL to the new T2000ADSB?
The upgrade will take between 5-7 days from receipt of your T2000SFL into our facility.
What are the delivery/shipping costs?
All new T2000ADSB Transponder units are shipped to the customer free of charge. For all T2000SFL upgrades, the cost of shipping your transponder to us will remain the responsibility of the sender and Microair will provide free shipment of the upgraded transponder back to you.
