Oblò is a compact, lightweight, easy to install instrument that fits into a standard 3 1/8″ (80mm) cutout.
With its round display it integrates:
– Digital attitude indicator
– Altimeter with QNH (altitude range of -1000 ~ +25,000 feet)
– Airspeed Indicator
– Gyro Compass featuring magnetic heading and GPS tracking
– Vertical speed indicator
– Turn Rate Indicator
– HSI & Gyrodirectional
– Measure and units are configurable.
Unlike other products similar in size, the Oblò does not display the speed and altitude taken from a GPS system but calculates them by itself.
Gps signal can be taken from the Flybox optional antenna (cod. 810010) or any of the Gps devices with NMEA output available on the market.
The airspeed and altitude indications, based on pressure sensors, do not suffer the typical delays and errors of GPS-based indications.
Oblò displays true aircraft attitude thanks to the integrated AHRS inertial platform, equipped with solid-state micromachined sensors (gyros, accelerometers, and magnetometers) and an adaptive algorithm.
Using a state of art custom TFT LCD, the display visibility results to be at the best standards also in direct sunlight with adjustable brightness.
The calibration performed for each instrument guarantees for the altimeter a maximum error of 0.5 millibars (4.6meters) in a temperature range of -20 ~ +70°C and an altitude range of -1000 ~ +25,000 feet and for the airspeed a maximum error of 3 km/h at low speed (below 30km/h), which decreases as the speed increases.
Oblò provides the following three screens that are possible to select with a fast turn or the knob.
