This wireless, 4 button programmer includes a 2 line, 16 character LCD. It is used with IRNet peripheral devices to perform setup tasks and monitor real-time information provided by IRNet peripherals such as the Co-Pilot II computer. Scan for IRNet devices on the network, access setup menus, answer simple setup questions to program IRNet peripheral devices. Use the IRNet to get important information back from your airborne IRNet peripherals.
IRNet offers a fresh approach to Controlling and monitoring On-Board Avionics. IRNet consists of a wireless, infrared, 4 button programmer containing a 2-line, 16 character LCD, and a wireless network router. IRNet range is dependent on weather conditions but ranges from 30 to 200 feet, line of sight. The router is mounted in the aircraft and is capable of supporting multiple IRNet compatible devices. Each device on the network communicates with the IRNet programmer using a unique address much like the network of computers in your office, but on a smaller scale. Connected IRNet peripherals are represented as separate devices in the programmer, each supporting its own unique menu system. Setting up an IRNet device is as simple as scanning for the devices welcome screen and answering a series of questions, much like using a television remote. Monitoring system information in real time is as easy as scrolling through the available data screens. Imagine being able to pre-flight check every critical piece of electronics in your aircraft prior to takeoff, and all without having to bend down and remove a wing or even plug in a wire.
