The Shadin Avionics 8800-T Altitude Encoder feeds gray code altitude information to the transponder. It simultaneously feeds RS-232 altitude data to the GPS and the Shadin Avionics Altitude Management System (AMS-2000) for Instantaneous Vertical Speed calculation. The AMS-2000 has an innovative fixed time-based (not fixed altitude) warning as the target altitude is approached. This means the alert is given earlier at higher rates of vertical speed for a smoother level off, allowing 20 seconds to level off, regardless of the rate of climb or descent. The addition of the Shadin Avionics Encoder enables an enhanced, high-resolution 10-foot resolution to be displayed on your AMS-2000 Altitude Alert System.
