UPDATE: Production has started and several early selected customers have units and flown them successfully. We are just waiting to finish and release the updated MarsaConnect software which is required to connect and download data from the Marsa54L. Official release announcement just a few weeks away.
The next altimeter in the evolution of the MARSA system is in its final test trials. It has standard MARSA54 functionality plus:
4 + 1 Output channels. 4 Pyro outputs on board plus one signal level Auxiliary channel.
External LED driver. Supplied Cree LED bright enough to see blinking from the flight line. Know that the altimeter is live and "go" right up to the button being pushed.
Further development of the advanced active power manager introduced in the MARSA54
FET outputs LiPo safe and protected. Firmware monitors FET current during pyro events and limits maximum current below the FET rating.
4 user programming presets to store and recall frequently used programmed configurations.
Louder piezo beeper with user adjustable tone frequency.
Extended flight data recording time - up to 20 minutes per flight.
ALL functions accessible with onboard user interface - no computer required.
Lower cost than Marsa54!
