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.
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.
Directly connecting this adapter to the FlightBox requires modifications to the case. To avoid cutting the case, we highly recommend using an inexpensive two-port USB hub to connect this adapter and the remote USB GPS to your FlightBox. If you do not have / need a GPS, we recommend the use of a USB extension cable.
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.
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.
