1.8 ounce Digital Altimeter & VSI — one instrument!
We’re just starting to ship our new combined Digital Altimeter & VSI. In one unit, it combines a settable Altimeter and a high range VSI. It has a bunch of other features as well, such as Density Altitude, Voltage and VFR Cruising Alarm.
It weighs 1.8 ounces and is about 1 inch thick.
The screen is extra sharp and vivid light green, and the backlight may be turned on or off. (Or adjusted via an external dimmer pot; not included.)
There’s a LED light (for showing when the altitude is on or off a legal VFR altitude); a power switch, Up and Down arrows (for setting correct barometric pressure) and a mode button.
The home screen always shows current altitude along with the current VSI rate.
Toggling through other screens, you can see Density Altitude:
Or you can see the current system voltage:

It uses 10 – 15VDC as input; about 10 milli-amperes.
