iEFIS Explorer Lite 8.5"

What is iEFIS?

iEFIS is a registered trademark owned by MGL Avionics. iEFIS is the next generation EFIS system utilizing a custom developed, pressure sensitive, sunlight readable touch screen that can also be operated using gloves. iEFIS combines the undeniable advantages of simplified operation that a touch screen can offer with rich traditional controls which are equaly indispensible in the cockpit environment. The pressure sensitive touch screen operates much like a tactile button does preventing false activation when touching the screen during turbulent conditions. A simple but highly effective solution...

iEFIS Explorer Lite 8.5"

The iEFIS Explorer Lite 8.5" instrument is an all-in-one EFIS that is a revolution in simplicity, but harnesses the full power of the iEFIS system.

The MGL Avionics "Lite" series products are straight forward to install and make great panels for many smaller aircraft that would like a sophisticated EFIS without the cost and complication of a large system.

Add a Second iEFIS Explorer Lite 8.5" Screen!

$2850.00

You must be logged-in as a Sonex Aircraft plans owner to view this product category.

Please use our Instruments Order Form for Mail or Fax orders.

With the new Sonex Aircraft B-Models, two iEFIS screens will fit in our two-place aircraft panels. Dual screen systems allow more space to display all iEFIS display options (flight data, engine monitoring, nav, etc.) in any layout you wish!

Note: "Lite" iEFIS systems (no iBox installation) only offer limited capability for second screen. See the difference between iEFIS Regular and Lite installations.


iEFIS Extender Module

$250.00

You must be logged-in as a Sonex Aircraft plans owner to view this product category.

Please use our Instruments Order Form for Mail or Fax orders.

Connects to one or two iEFIS "Lite" panels using panel RS232 port 2 which is used in a special high speed mode.

Provides 5 RS232 ports bringing the total number of usable RS232 ports to 6. Provides 8 analog/digital inputs. These are the exact equivalent of the 8 analog/digital ports on an iBOX used with a regular iEFIS system.

Provides 5 digital outputs (transistor switches to ground). These are the exact equivalent of the 5 outputs on an iBOX used with a regular iEFIS system.

Provides a OAT sensor input compatible with a MGL OAT sensor (LM335 semiconductor sensor).

Provides a AOA sensor (Angle of attack). This sensor is the exact equivalent of the AOA sensor used on the iBOX in a regular iEFIS system.

STX 165R Sandia Remote Mode C Encoding Transponder for MGL iEFIS and XTreme

$1769.00

You must be logged-in as a Sonex Aircraft plans owner to view this product category.

Please use our Instruments Order Form for Mail or Fax orders.

The STX 165R elevates transponder capability to a new level while reducing both weight and size. The solid state transmitter design provides 200 Watts nominal output with no warm up time. And because it’s all solid state, power requirements are at an absolute minimum.

The STX 165R will accept either Gillham Gray Code or RS-232 altitude input for Mode C operation. The STX 165R can be mounted with or without the mounting tray either vertically or horizontally. The STX 165R is especially suited for installations where size, weight and power consumption are critical. All functions of the STX 165R can be remotely controlled by the MGL iEFIS Explorer via the RS-232 port.

Package includes MGL/Sandia wire harness, RG 400 coaxial antenna cable, and the Delta Pop brand airfoiled transponder antenna.


Trig TT22 Remote Mode S Encoding Tranponder for MGL iEFIS and XTreme (1090ES ADS-B Out Capable)

$2549.00

You must be logged-in as a Sonex Aircraft plans owner to view this product category.

Please use our Instruments Order Form for Mail or Fax orders.

Mode A and C transponders are now being replaced by Mode S technology which is optimized for tomorrow’s airspace requirements. Despite its modest size the TT22 is a heavyweight performer, at 250 watts nominal power output this class 1 transponder meets the latest FAA TSO C166b standards for ADS-B Out. The TT22 is suitable for use in higher performance aircraft flying above 15,000 feet and / or above 175 knots.

Package includes Trig TT21/22 Transponder CAN Interface harness, RG 400 coaxial antenna cable, and the Delta Pop brand airfoiled transponder antenna.


MGL Autopilot Servos (2) and Harness

$2090.00

You must be logged-in as a Sonex Aircraft plans owner to view this product category.

Please use our Instruments Order Form for Mail or Fax orders.

The MGL Avionics iEFIS (and iEFIS Lite) contains a built-in autopilot. All you do is install our servos in the aircraft and the control and AP engage/disengage is handled directly by the iEFIS using the keypad, or via a remote switch. No other control modules are required.

The Servos connect to the iBox via the CAN Bus network like all other system devices.

The EFIS handles all autopilot controls so that once you have engaged it, it will couple with any navigation source you select from that point on seamlessly. There is no need to change modes.
