The PCAS MRX Personal Collision Avoidance System includes a Dash-mount unit, Stub antenna, Cigarette-lighter adaptor, 2 AA Batteries, Velcro mounting dots, Silicone "gripper" feet, and a 50-page Owner's Manual.
The PCAS MRX displays range and relative altitude of the closest threat, with continuous monitoring of the top 10 threats within the 5 NM scalable detection window. Altitude detection is scalable up to +/- 5000 ft.
At 2.5” (65mm) W x 4.2” (107mm) D x 0.6” (17mm) H, MRX is smaller than a deck of cards. The PCAS MRX uses an easy menu-driven interface and audio annunciations for traffic advisories and alerts. The unit boasts a built in solid-state altimeter for "always relative" altitude information, and built-in temperature compensators and overtemp protection. Information is displayed on the high-brightness LED display (dimmable). PCAS MRX also monitors aircraft bus voltage and host transponder output.
The unit is powered by aircraft power (12-40 VDC adapter included) or 2 "AA" Batteries (with 8+ hours of use).
The PCAS MRX is half the size, 1/3 less price, portable and offers better accuracy and many more features than the ATD-300. Other capabilities of the PCAS MRX include:
Digital range, scalable from 5NM to 1NM
Relative altitude, scalable from 2500 ft to 500 ft, with ascending/descending indicator
A built-in altimeter provides the highest, real-time accuracy available
Displays the local squawk code and altitude
Audio alerts for threats and advisories
An installation kit is available
