Pilot's Guide to Avionics 2017-2018 - 22
Continued from page 20
Jupiter Avionics routinely is one of the most prolific
among presenters at every AEA New Product Introduction session, and 2017 didn't disappoint. The company's
Bryan Hart briefed attendees on the following new products:
Jupiter Avionics' JRAC2-001 dual audio controller
is a remote-mounted, compact, lightweight unit relying
on a serial data bus from multifunction display systems
or Jupiter's own JCP series of audio control panels for
control and display of audio functions. The unit supports
up to eight users, four of which have transmit capability,
and uses a Windows-based computer for its configuration.
The JA10-001 transceiver audio controller also is
configurable with a Windows computer. It can control
up to 10 transceivers but occupies the same space as
Jupiter's JA94/95 series. The unit supports up to eight
Jupiter's JA95-070 and -N70 audio controllers feature
receive-volume controls, duplex mode transmission for
cellphone operation, a built-in adapter for non-aircraft
radios and transmit capability for four users.
The company's JA94-044 dual audio controller is pinto-pin compatible with the AMS44 unit from Northern
Airborne Technology, and even features the AMS44's
transceiver selection order. It supports eight users, and
incorporates field-replaceable illuminated legends, either standard or night-vision goggle-compatible.
The JA95-R12 12-channel audio summing amplifier
is remote-mounted, with up to 12 fully adjustable audio
inputs, which also may be configured in the field using a
Jupiter Avionics also offers a line of panel-mounted
accessories, including the new JA70-017, a 17-Dzushigh glove box, designed to accommodate the iPad Air
2, and the JA73-001 glove box, which fits a standard
6.25-inch tray size and includes predrilled and tapped
holes for easy installation.

Kuerzi Avionics is a Switzerlandbased EASA-approved
design, production and
avionics and electrical systems on
fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft of any
size. Robert Zehnder presented the company's introduction of its newest two products, the KPL124 DC-DC
converter and the KMI 106 analog ARINC converter.
Put simply, the KPL124 DC-DC converter transforms input voltages ranging from 10v DC to 48v DC
into a programmable output voltage of 5, 14 or 28v
DC, with other outputs available on request. Power
input is protected by an internal 30A fuse. The unit's
light weight and its selectable output parameters,
combined with high efficiency, result in one of the
best power/weight-ratios in its class, according to the
company. The product meets aviation standards and
requirements and is delivered with an EASA Form 1,
with certification data available on request. Kuerzi also
offers to perform the entire certification task for particular aircraft types and installations. The KPL124 is
currently certified and in operation on Agusta AW139
The KMI 106 analog ARINC converter meanwhile
converts data from up to 10 analog sensors into standard ARINC 429 messages. Input sources include two
resistance temperature detector sensors, four thermocouple sensors - with 12-bit resolution - and four
strain gauge sensors, with 16-bit resolution.
The KMI 106 AAC also incorporates an integrated
health monitoring system to monitor its internal status.
Like the KPL124, the KMI 106 AAC is designed to
meet aviation requirements and is delivered with an
EASA Form 1. The device can be installed anywhere
on any aircraft and customized sensor ranges are
available on request to meet customer requirements.
