APPROACH RELEASES SPIDER HUB WIRING SYSTEM FOR INTERCOM/AUDIO

APPROACH SYSTEMS HAS ADDED A MODULAR, PLUG AND PLAY AVIONIC WIRING SOLUTION FOR AIRCRAFT INTERCOMS AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE SHIPMENT.

OREM, Utah, November 10, 2021, Approach Systems Inc. (www.approach-systems.com), a manufacturer of aviation electronics products, announces the availability of the Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution. The Spider Hub replaces the outdated, time consuming intercom wiring with a fast, “Plug & Play” hub and cable system making intercom installs and upgrades fast, cost-effective and safe.

The Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution uses the latest technologies to interconnect avionic components with a central hub and high quality, professionally manufactured Milspec Tefzel cables, and connectors. The Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution is compatible with the Garmin, Bendix/King, PS Engineering, and other popular intercoms. The Spider Hub retails for $89 and the intercom connecting cables cost $49. Each station (Pilot, Co-Pilot, passengers) is $39. Simply order the lengths and the appropriate intercom cable, plug them in and you are done. The cables are terminated on both ends including the headphone and mike jacks.

The Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution eliminates the time consuming and error-prone hand wiring methods used today with a reliable “Plug & Play” solution. Additionally, troubleshooting time for ground looping and other problems that escalate installation costs are eliminated. The wiring meets the manufacturer’s requirements including proper grounding. Every cable is tested to guarantee 100% electrical and physical integrity. The Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution provides an increase in reliability, safety and maintainability with a modernized wiring system.

“The Spider Hub can be installed in any certified or experimental aircraft.” Said Kieth Sorenson, Approach’s President. “With our simple plug and play system installed, aircraft owners can quickly and inexpensively upgrade to the new features in future intercoms and audio panels. You don’t have to worry about problems arising from splicing into old wires or introducing new problems when rewiring a harness.”

Additionally, according to Sorenson, “Older aircraft can benefit anytime from Approach products because they typically have original wiring that can have brittle and cracked insulation leading to phantom grounds, electrical connections that have become loose leading to possible glitches, abrasion and fretting, damaging the integrity of the wiring were installed using and outdated wiring techniques.”

The Spider Hub Intercom Wiring Solution can be purchased direct from Approach Systems or from any of its authorized dealers.

Approach focused on developing products to automate the upgrade and retrofit process of general aviation electronics (avionics). The products are based on modular technologies using aerospace standard components, materials and computer technology. For more information, visit www.approach-systems.com.
