ADS-B Serial Output RS-232 Interface
Display ADS-B data on your EFIS or MFD (experimental aircraft only) using this RS-232 interface cable. ADS-B information is sent in industry standard GDL-90 format. Supports baud rates from 9600 - 115200.
- USB to RS-232 adapter (bare wire)
Note: You may need additional components to connect this cable with your display system. DB-9, DB-15, DB-25 and similar connectors are available from multiple vendors. Please see here for some components.
The typical installation only requires two wires - Tx and ground. The Tx wire on the cable connects with an Rx pin on the EFIS or MFD. Ground connects to a ground pin on the EFIS. See this page for details on the installation process.
NOTE: Due to the size of the USB connector it is not possible to directly connect this adapter to a USB port on the FlightBox. We highly recommend using our inexpensive four-port USB hub to connect this adapter and the remote USB GPS to your FlightBox.
NOTE: You cannot use the Internal GPS and the USB-to-RS232 adapter together. If your application requires a GPS you will need to use the Remote USB GPS.
Open Flight Solutions cannot provide support for custom wiring and is not responsible for any damage that may occur from interconnecting FlightBox with other avionics systems.
