New installation benefits for the TT31 transponder – the ADS-B Out class leader

Trig are pleased to announce that world’s leading retro-fit transponder, the TT31 has been further improved. Popular as a direct ‘plug and play’ for the KT76A and KT78A, the TT31 has previously required a tray change when installing ADS-B. Now faster and easier installation is possible for ADS-B Out too. Using software version 3.11 or higher installers can now use the original installed tray, further reducing the time and cost of a compliant ADS-B install.

Andy Campbell Trig’s Customer Support Manager said, “Our free FAA ADS-B STC which covers over 650 aircraft models is available via qualified Approved Trig Dealers. Trig equipment is simple to install and the upgrade to our STC now allows the speed of ‘plug and play’ to be exploited in any ADS-B installation. Existing TT31 owners can also benefit with a software upgrade via their Trig dealer.”

Trig transponders can be used with a range of certified WAAS GPS sources to provide 2020 ADS-B compliance. Peregrine of Denver is Trig’s STC partner – they have seen a growing number of aircraft owners using Trig’s simple interface with Garmin 400 and 500 series GPS navigators. Other GPS solutions are also available including Trig’s TN70 kit. This is designed as an easy retro-fit for non compliant aircraft and includes a WAAS GPS unit and antenna.

Dave Rankin of Peregrine said, “I’m certain these equipment combinations will have a broad appeal as pilots want to meet the ADS-B mandate with the minimum expense. Trig’s TT31 matched with an existing 430W or 530W makes compliance totally practical.”

Trig is also a partner with the NextGen GA Fund. This is a loan scheme established to provide U.S. pilots with assistance, funding both the hardware and install costs of their ADS-B Out solution.
