As a Class 1 transponder with an operating range of up to 30.000 ft. and 250 knots, it is ideal for all GA aircraft, including gliders, experimentals, ultralights and balloons, VFR and IFR. The KTX2 provides maximum possible safety, since in addition to the Squawk, the unit also transmits the flight level and a unique 24-bit identifier which is allocated to the particular aircraft. Furthermore, air traffic control is able to send requests to particular transponders. With this, the KTX2 makes a remarkable contribution toward flight safety.

A housing length of only 146.2 mm for Standard format means that the transponder can even be installed quite easily in cockpits with difficult space restrictions.
Also available for the KTX2 are cable harnesses for WAAS GPS source connection and ADS-B In hardware (e.g. Appareo Stratus) as well as installation frames.
