APPROACH RELEASES PRO AND PRO-G WIRING SYSTEMS FOR IFR CONFIGURED AIRCRAFT INSTRUMENT PANELS

APPROACH MODERNIZES THE OUTDATED, HAND-WIRED CLUTTER BEHIND INSTRUMENT PANELS WITH A PLUG-AND-PLAY SOLUTION MAKING AVIONIC INSTALLS AND UPGRADES FAST, COST-EFFECTIVE AND SAFE.

OREM, Utah, July 16, 2021 - Approach Systems Corporation (www.approach-systems.com), a manufacturer of aviation electronic products, today announces availability of the Approach Pro and Pro-G Wiring Systems for IFR configured aircraft instrument panels. Approach Systems now has avionic wiring systems for basic, VFR, and IFR aircraft instrument panels available for immediate shipment. The Pro Wiring System is for IFR configured aircrafts and designed for Garmin, Apollo, or Bendix/King panel mounted devices. The Pro-G Wiring System is similar to the Pro, but is Garmin-centric providing customers a more cost-effective solution.

Approach's wiring systems interconnect avionic components with a central hub and "ready-built" Milspec Tefzel cables available for most avionics in the marketplace. Retrofitting Approach wiring systems into an aircraft is simple: select the Approach wiring system for your panel configuration (basic, VFR, or IFR), choose the "ready-built" cables for your avionics, install the hub, plug in the cables (between the hub and avionics) and you're done. Approach eliminates the time consuming and error-prone hand wiring methods used today.

Approach Pro Wiring System: Cost is $499 for the Approach Pro Hub and Approach "ready-built" cables cost between $49-$199. The Pro Wiring System is for IFR instrument panels supporting Garmin, Apollo, or Bendix/King panel mounted devices. The Pro Wiring System is compatible with most popular NAV/GPS/COM's, modern audio panels, intercoms, moving map displays, VOR indicators, HSI's, RMI's, ADF's, annunciators, mode control and any other "send and receive" RS-232 formatted electronic device and includes an auto pilot interface.

Approach Pro-G Wiring System: Cost is $399 for the Approach Pro-G Hub and Approach "ready-built" cables cost between $49-$199. The Pro-G Wiring System is for IFR instrument panels and supports all Garmin panel mounted devices.

Avionic upgrades, replacements, and panel build-outs are frequently weighed down with unknown labor variables and other associated barriers. Coupled with complicated technical details in panel wiring, especially in older aircraft, problems like wiring scope creep often result in continuous rounds of cost escalations. Approach removes these barriers providing customers a tremendous value by increasing reliability, cost-effectiveness and future maintainability.

Approach products can be retrofitted to any certified or home-built aircraft." Said Kieth Sorenson, Approach's President. "If the aircraft is newer, we recommend changing your wiring over to Approach's wiring system when you upgrade or replace any avionic equipment-the value, simplicity, durability and safety of adding Approach products delivers an unmatched return when compared to traditional hand-wiring processes used today."

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, electrical connections that have become loose, wire abrasion and fretting and outdated wiring schemes. Furthermore, pilots are continuing to upgrade older aircraft with the latest avionics rather than purchasing newer aircraft and Approach's products lend a tremendous amount of value to this ongoing trend."

Approach Systems is 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.
