Stratomaster Instrumentation MGL Avionics

MGL Avionics designs and produces a wide variety of aircraft avionics from sophisticated, highly flexible EFIS systems to airband transceivers.

MGL Avionics - Affordable Aircraft Instruments

iEFIS is the next generation EFIS system utilizing a custom developed, pressure sensitive, sunlight readable touch screen that can also be operated using gloves.

MGL Avionics iEFIS project

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.

GMC75X Credit Card Microcontroller

Ideal for those small jobs where a standard embedded controller can't be justified. The GMC75X is like a "BASIC Stamp" except that you can program the module in 'C' using C-FLEA and a download cable. Alternatively, use 8051 assembler.

Design Experience

"In the early 1980's, products were designed using the Zilog Z80 micro-processor. These ranged from a simple sequence controller to one of the world's first all digital DC motor controllers. Single and 3-phase 240Vac and 415Vac fully regenerative models were developed. Some are still running today! A common application area was paper and film conversion machinery."

From Johnson Electric a leader in motion subsystems, including motors,
solenoids, switches and flexible interconnects.

others.




MagShift
Solenoids Provide Quiet Flexible Operation


  Ledex - Solenoids Rotary Actuators


"Ledex introduces MagShift Solenoids. This highly flexible solenoid family
eliminates impact among its moving parts and therefore provides extremely quiet
operation. In a power-ON mode, MagShift solenoids will measure below 40 dBA,
including end of travel stop.




When the unit reaches its end-of-travel position there is no impact force,
which eliminates vibration and minimizes noise. Unlike other linear or tubular
solenoids, when the MagShift is actuated the plunger is able to travel past the
electrical ON position. "
