Connectivity

The Era of connectivity is here

All new Zeus systems come with a Wi-Fi module as standard. The Wi-Fi is in the vario unit, allowing for it to function even when the main power supply is used up.

Use the connectivity module and the LX could to automatically update your device, sync your database files, upload and backup flights to your personal and club account, get weather information and OLC and similar flight uploads.
Backup system

We have your back

Our system in comprised in such a way, that all sensors, including the GPS and connectivity module, are located in the vario device and are backed up with the internal battery.

This way, even if you happen to loose your main power supply, the vario will continue to log your flight with IGC security valid, and the vario-based simple navigation will continue to guide you throughout your flight.

Connect Zeus system with other devices

Being able to communicate with phones, PDA/PNA devices, radio transceivers and transponders, as well as communication with the LX cloud and all related cloud services, opens the usefulness of the system greatly, reducing the pilot workload.

Easy to cut-out. You get cut-out files

Exact cut-outs are simple to achieve with the provided cut-out fibre-glass guide and .dxf files for CNC cutting.

7 connectors for all possible

Utilizing two push-rotary knobs instead of legacy four rotary knobs, reduces the amount of distance the hand needs to travel in order to access settings and keeps the screen clean, since the hand will not cover it with those top rotaries.
