Meet the MGL Avionics N-16 NAV Receiver
The N16 navigation receiver is identical in size to the V16 COM radio and can be used in a simple configuration as combined NAV/COM solution for both MGL EFIS systems using the MGL protocols or, if at least one Vega or Razor control head is used these heads can provide NAV/COM data output on RS-232 that is compatible with most EFIS systems on the market.
For stand-alone operation you require at least one Razor control head or two Vega heads. Using these heads a fully compliant solution is presented that provides both VOR CDI using a rotary control for OBS bearing entry as well as the familiar two bar ILS localizer and glideslope indication.
The VOR provides a display for bearing to station and radial from station at the same time for up to two simultaneously-received VOR stations.
Note: The N16 does not provide the traditional +/-150mV signals to drive “steam gauges” – it is intended as stand-alone solution or to be integrated into an EFIS system.
Very latest in high performance signal processing provides a new generation of navigation receiver based on RF direct conversion technology.
Modular Design: The N16 is a split design remote-mount Nav Receiver that is controlled via a separate controller/EFIS.
- Single VOR with station ID Morse decoder
- Single VOR and simultaneous ILS (Localizer and Glide slope)
- Dual VOR
- Single ILS (Localizer and Glide slope) with ID Morse station decoder
Pick Your Controls: The N16 Nav Radio can be controlled by 1 Razor or 2 Vega Control Heads (or multiples for dual cockpits). This means you can have dual left seat and right seat radio displays and controls, or front and back (for tandem seat aircraft). It can also be controlled directly by an MGL Avionics iEFIS (Gen 3 and above), with or without Razor/Vega Controls.
Low Cost: Designed with modern components and ingenuity for the lowest cost.
SL30 Compatible: When the N16 is paired with a Razor/Vega control, the control can be connected to any EFIS or display that communicates with SL30 protocols, to display CDI/LOC/GS on the external display.
Designed for OEM Use: A full Interface Control Document (ICD) is published to allow for third party use of the N16 Nav radio.
- Can be used stand-alone with an MGL Odyssey/Voyager G2 or any iEFIS (G2 and G3)
- Can be used in combination with a V16 to form a single NAV/COM – in combination with Razor or Vega controls heads can provide a compatible NAV or NAV/COM solution for third party EFIS systems.
