|There is currently a 2-3 week lead time to get a KRA-10A System certified and ready to ship.|
|Part Number:||KI-250 Indicator (14/28 V white lighting) - P/N: 066-3054-01|
|Part Number:||KRA-10A Receiver / Transmitter - P/N: 066-1061-03|
|Part Number:||KA-131 Antenna (Flat) - P/N: 071-1114-00|
|Part Number:||KA-131 Antenna (Skewed) - P/N: 071-1114-01|
|Condition:||Serviceable (Certified Used)|
|Included:||Indicator, Receiver / Transmitter, Antenna (please specify which type), Connectors, Receiver / Transmitter to Antenna Cable, 6 Month Warranty|
|Comments:||The Flat antenna (-00) is needed when the mounting surface is between parallel to the ground and 6 degrees from parallel to the ground in flight.|
|Comments:||The Skewed antenna (-01) is needed when the mounting surface is between 6 and 20 degrees of parallel to the ground in flight.|
|Comments:||The KRA-10A system is designed for aircraft with a 28 V electrical system. You can still use the KRA-10A in a 14 V aircraft, but you will need a voltage converter (King KA-133 or equivalent) to supply it with 28 V electricity.|
|Comments:||There has recently been high demand for the KRA-10 System, and we are working to get more of them certified.|
The most popular low-cost radar altimeter we carry is the King KRA-10A, part of the Silver Crown series. This is a 3-piece system, with a KI-250 Indicator, a KRA-10A Receiver / Transmitter, and a KA-131 Antenna to mount on the belly of your aircraft. This system indicates your radar altitude AGL from 20 feet to 2,500 feet.
The KRA-10A Receiver /Transmitter is an upgraded version of the original KRA-10. The KRA-10A adds the ability to connect to a "squat switch". When activated, this prevents the KRA-10A transmitting when on the ground.
The KI-250 allows the pilot to set a Decision Height, in altitude AGL. Once you reach this altitude, a light illuminates and a tone sounds. (This is a very good safety aid and backup on an IMC approach.) There is also a self-test function.
