    G'day

    I have an ADSB installation I'm working on and wondering if there's someone here that works in this area and might be willing to lend me some advice and thoughts. I'm currently working towards A&P qualification in my own time and this fit is one of the challenges I have set myself. Whilst my mechanical knowledge is reasonable, my electronics knowledge needs some improvement.

    Cheers

    Wanting to know if I can re-use the power that is there for a Narco AT 150, for a Stratus ESG with the hard wiring for a 2S?

    Crap by area, I meant ADSB rather than geographical.

    I don't think so...The Narco AT150 only called for a 1.5 to 2 amp breaker..The Stratus ESG alone specifies a 5 amp.

    Do you have where the specs are for the breaker? The nominal current draw is 0.5A - I have the experimental installation instructions. Don'tknow if the TSO version is different?

    I appreciate your efforts, thank you. Hadn't got as far as the appendices. As it happens our NARCO sits on a 5A breaker with a 1.5A fuse, so hopefully we'll be good if i remove the 1.5A additional fuse. Thanks again.

    Just make sure the wire is at least 20AWG.
