DISPLAYING TRAFFIC DATA

Traffic display can be divided in 3 groups: Flarm, ADS-B and PCAS. In some devices all three can be separately configured. In many cases PCAS (non-directional traffic based on transponder signals without GPS-data) can be switched off separately.

The Oudie (or Oudie 2 or Oudie IGC) can be connected to an ADS-B and or Flarm receiver using the supplied Power/Data cable, converters and connectors. The Power/Data cable is also able to power the Flarm or ADS-B receiver (12V). Under Menu>Settings>Input the option Serial must be selected. Then in Menu>Settings>Hardware select the correct device or set to Auto. Under Port settings the serial port can be configured: COM4: (Serial cable) is the required Port and Speed must match the speed of the Flarm or ADS-B receiver (minimum recommended: 19200) (pic 7).

LXNAV LX80X0-series navigation computersLX80X0-series

ADS-B and/or Flarm data can be utilized to display traffic information on the LX80X0-series. It is also possible to combine the data of the integrated Flarm-module of the LX80X0 with data from an external ADS-B receiver. Connecting is no challenge: the Flarm-display port must be used as output port for Flarm-data to the external ADS-B receiver. The PC-port on the cable harness (round 5-pin Binder) must be used as input port using an optional cable. The PC-port can be selected as source for traffic data in the setup menu under Hardware>Flarm and this must be set to Ext. (PC) (on older devices the Colibri cable that was supplied with the LX80X0 will have to be attached to the Colibri port on the LX80X0 and to the output port of the external ADS-B receiver. In this case the mode under Hardware>Flarm in the setup menu must be set to Ext.(Colibri)). An external Flarm display can be reconnected by using a signal splitter on the output port of the external ADS-B receiver or another output port.

Connecting of the LX90X0-series is identical to the LX80X0-series. The larger screens of the LX90X0-series make them very suitable to insert Flarm-radar navboxes (pic 8). These navboxes are fully customizable. Older devices which have a different setup like in the LX80X0-do not exist in the LX90X0-series.

LXNAV Flarm displaysFlarmView57

Flarm displays are available in basic and andvanced versions. Basic versions provide relative traffic information in a simplified and intuitive way. For these displays only Flarm data sentences are required. Advanced displays show more information and are much more customizable. These advanced displays need both GPS and Flarm data sentences to operate. The LXNAV FlarmView(57) is an advanced Flarm, ADS-B and obstacle alerting and warning display with preloaded FlarmNet database. Configurations for the communication with Flarm, ADS-B receivers and/or navigation computers can be edited in the setup menu under Hardware and Flarm settings (pic 9). Display of the traffic data can be accomplished in three ways: graphical, numerical and conventional (pic 10). Flarm displays are connected using a RJ12 connector with IGC-standard pin-definitions. The 57mm-version of the FlarmView also features an integrated signal splitter.
