GENERAL DESCRIPTION Introduction
This manual provides the installation and operating instructions for the Garmin GTX 320 and the GTX 320A Transponders. Information pertaining to the maintenance, alignment, and procurement of replacement parts is found in the GTX 320 Maintenance Manual, P/N 190-00133-02 and the GTX 320A Maintenance Manual, P/N 190-00133-08. After installation of the GTX 320/ GTX 320A, FAA Form 337 must be completed by an appropriately certificated agency and ATC transponder tests required by 14 CFR, Part 91.413 must be completed to return the aircraft to service.
The Garmin GTX 320/320A Transponder is a radio transmitter and receiver that operates on radar frequencies. Receiving ground radar interrogations at 1030 MHz, it transmits a coded response of pulses to ground-based radar on a frequency of 1090 MHz. As with other Mode A/Mode C transponders, the GTX 320/320A replies with any one of 4,096 codes, which differ in the position and number of pulses transmitted. By replying to ground transmissions, your GTX 320/320A enables ATC computers to display aircraft identification, altitude and ground speed on ATC radar screens. The GTX 320/320A is equipped with IDENT capability that activates the Special Position Identification Pulse (SPI) for approximately 20 seconds (18 seconds for the GTX 320A) identifying your transponder return from other aircraft on the controllers scope.

INSTALLATION OVERVIEW Introduction
This section provides the necessary information for installing the GTX 320/320A Transponders, and where required, optional accessories. Installation of the GTX 320/320A Transponder should comply with the aircraft Type Certificate (TC) or Supplemental Type Certificate (STC). Cabling will be fabricated by the installing agency to fit each particular aircraft. The guidance of FAA advisory circulars AC 43.13-1B and AC 43.13-2A, where applicable, may be found useful for accomplishing retro-fit installations that comply with FAA regulations. This section contains interconnect diagrams, mounting dimensions, and information pertaining to installation.
Unpacking and Inspecting Equipment
Carefully unpack the equipment and make a visual inspection of the unit for evidence of damage incurred during shipment. If the unit is damaged, notify the carrier and file a claim. To justify a claim, save the original shipping container and all packing materials. Do not return the unit to Garmin until the carrier has authorized the claim. Retain the original shipping containers for storage. If the original containers are not available, a separate cardboard container should be prepared that is large enough to accommodate sufficient packing material to prevent movement.
2.3.1 Location Considerations
A. The antenna (Garmin P/N 010-10160-00) should be well removed from any major protrusions, the engine(s), propeller(s), and antenna masts. It should also be as far removed as practical from landing gear doors, access doors, or other openings that could alter its radiation pattern. The antenna should be mounted on the underside of the aircraft and in a vertical position (relative to the position of the aircraft in level flight). Avoid mounting the antenna within three feet of the ADF sense antenna or any other communication antenna and six feet from the DME antenna. To prevent RF interference, the antenna must be mounted a minimum distance of three feet from the GTX 320/320A.
If the antenna is being installed on a composite aircraft, ground planes may be required. Conductive wire mesh, radials, or thin aluminum sheets embedded in the composite material provide the proper ground plane allowing the antenna pattern (gain) to be maximized for optimum transponder performance.
2.3.2 Antenna Installation
Install the antenna according to the antenna manufacturers instructions and FAA AC 43.13-2A.
Page 2-1 Rev M
2.3.3 Installation Approval Considerations for Pressurized Aircraft
Antenna and cable installations on pressurized cabin aircraft require FAA approved installation design and engineering substantiation data whenever such installations incorporate alteration (penetration) of the cabin pressure vessel by connector holes and/or mounting arrangements. For needed engineering support pertaining to the design and approval of such pressurized aircraft antenna installations, it is recommended that the installer proceed according to any of the following listed alternatives: 1. Obtain approved antenna installation design data from the aircraft manufacturer. 2. Obtain an FAA approved Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) pertaining to and valid for the subject antenna installation. 3. Contact the FAA Aircraft Certification Office in the appropriate Region and request identification of FAA Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs) who are authorized to prepare and approve the required antenna installation engineering data. 4. Obtain FAA Advisory Circular AC-183C and select (and contact) a DER from the roster of individuals identified there under. 5. Contact an aviation industry organization such as the Aircraft Electronics Association and request their assistance.
Page 2-2 Rev M
2.3.4 Antenna Cable Installation
When routing antenna cables, observe the following precautions: All cable routing should be kept as short as possible and as direct as possible. Avoid sharp bends. Avoid routing cables near power sources (e.g., 400 Hz generators, trim motors, etc.) or near power for fluorescent lighting. Avoid routing cable near ADF antenna cable (allow at least a 12-inch separation). The table below lists the recommended 50 ohm double shielded coax antenna cable vendor and the type to be used for specific lengths of cable. Adherence to this table will ensure that the coax installation will not exceed the maximum allowable 1.5 dB attenuation at the transmitter operating frequency of 1090 MHz.

2.3.5 Antenna Cable Connectors
One of two rack connectors is provided (item 6 or 12 in the installation drawing, figure B2). RF Adapter item 12 (P/N 330-00326-00) requires the cable to be terminated to an appropriate type BNC plug (provided by installer), which is then attached to item 12. Any 50 ohm, double shielded cable may be used, provided it introduces less than 1.5 dB attenuation at 1 GHz including the connector. Connector item 6 (P/N 330-00198-00) requires the cable to be terminated directly to it and can accommodate only M17/128 (RG-400) cable. The completed cable including connectors must introduce no more than 1.5 dB attenuation at 1 GHz. Instructions for installing the item 6 are shown in Figure 2-1 and detailed in the following steps A-G.
Page 2-3 Rev M
Figure 2-1 BNC Connector Assembly Drawing A. B. C. Trim coax outer insulation back 0.50" Trim braid (not center conductor or insulation) back 0.25". Strip Insulation back 0.120".
Place the ferrule over the coax braid, flush against the coax outer insulation before performing the next step if the outside diameter of the coax braid is smaller than the inside diameter of the center connector sidewall opening. D. Insert cable (center conductor, dielectric and shield braid) through the sidewall of the connector and solder the center conductor to the center pin of the connector.
When using low loss cable it may be necessary to flatten the solid wire center conductor slightly so it can fit the slot on the RF connector center pin. When soldering, avoid applying excess heat to the connector body, and center conductor insulator. E. F. G. Heat the outside of the connector sleeve and at the same time apply solder between the braid and the sleeve. Continue to apply heat until the solder flows evenly. Install 50 Matching Bushing.
Insert connector cap and tack solder in two places.

GTX 320/320A Installation NOTES
Avoid installing the unit near heat sources. If this is not possible, ensure that additional cooling is provided. Allow adequate space for installation of cables and connectors. The installer will supply and fabricate all of the cables. All wiring must be in accordance with FAA AC 43.13-2A. GTX 320 units that are at Mod Level 1 must use the Mod Level 1 Rack Assembly. After Mod Level 1, GTX 320 installations are 0.170" (4.31 mm) deeper in the panel. A. Assemble the connector/rack kit according to figure B2. Install the rack assembly according to the dimensions given in figures B1. Mounting brackets are not supplied due to the wide range of mounting configurations available. Suitable mounting brackets may be fabricated from sheet metal or angle stock. To ensure a sturdy mount, rear support for the unit should be provided. Do not insert screws through the rear plate of the mounting tray, into the transponder. These holes are only for use with the adapter described in paragraph 2.8. Looking at the bottom of the transponder, make sure the front lobe of the locking mechanism is in a vertical position. This can be accomplished by using a 3/32" Allen wrench through the face plate. Slide the unit into the rack until the front lobe of the unit touches the rack. Guide pins on the back plate will help in the proper alignment of the unit in the rack. Turn the Allen wrench clockwise until unit is secured in the rack. Continue turning until tight. Do not overtighten the screw. To remove the unit from the rack, turn the 3/32" Allen wrench counterclockwise until it disengages from the rack.

GARMIN GNS 530W
A Level 2 Mode-S transponder with exciting datalink traffic capabilities. Sharing the same keypad & digital display with the popular GTX 327, the GTX 330 adds to the features with an outside air temperature display (temp. input required), altitude monitor with voice audio alert, and density altitude computations (temperature input required). But the real excitement lies in the GTX 330s datalink traffic capabilities through the FAAs Traffic Information Services. GTX 330 promises to deliver effective traffic information to the GA cockpit in busy terminal environments at a fraction of the cost of current traffic systems. The TIS system is available through 124 Mode-S Traffic Control radar sites throughout the U.S. Aircraft within a 60nm (expected to increase to 90+nm) radius of a Mode-S radar site will receive traffic advisories and warnings from ATC via Mode-S datalink, and this info will be displayed on Garmin 400/500 series products. This system will display 8 nearest targets within a 7nm radius and 3,500 feet of the aircraft. Pilots will receive both visual traffic information (via 400/500 series products) and radio alerts of traffic in the area. The GTX 330 meets all requirements of the Mode-S mandate in Europe, which requires Mode-S for IFR traffic by 2003 and all VFR traffic by 2005. GTX 330 will be offered in diversity & non-diversity models to meet the requirements of a variety of aircraft and operations. The GTX 330D (diversity model) is the first panel-mount diversity-model transponder available. 2 year warranty.
The GTX 330 can only be sold over the counter to experimental aircraft owners with a pre-wired harness. Please call 1-800-826-3160 for partner shop location for certified installs. (price of installation not included)

With the intro of the GTX 327, Garmin revolutionizes a part of the panel that has been long overlooked. This fullfeatured, TSO certified transponder brings a unique level of functionality and utility to your airplane. Its solid state transmitter provides 200 watts nominal power output and eliminates the need for a cavity tube which will eventually fail and require expensive replacement. And since the GTX 327 design is 100% solid state there is no warm up time, lower power consumption and lower heat emission. All of which translates to a longer service life. Some of the GTX 327 biggest features are the easiest to see. Among them, the easy-riding DSTN Liquid Crystal Display which reverses yellow numbers out of black for optimal viewing. An innovative keypad makes entering a squawk code a snap. And a dedicated VFR button allows for quick and easy 1200/VFR squawking. The GTX 327 also offers two important timing functions. The first screen shows the current time and count up timer. The second indicates flight time and a count down timer. Together they represent a whole new standard in transponder utility.

P/N 11-00342.. $1695.00 The GTX 327 can be sold over the counter to certified & experimental aircraft owners with a pre-wired harness. The GTX 320A is a full featured, compact, panel mounted Class 1A transponder. GTX 320As solid state transmitter provides 200 watts nominal power output eliminating the need for a cavity tube that can degrade with time, fail, or require expensive replacement. 100% solid state also means no warm up time, reduced power consumption and heat for longer service life. Extensive utilization of surface mount technology provides shallow depth and light weight which simplifies installation in the tightest spaces. 14 or 28 volt operation is available without the requirement for external voltage converters or dropping resistors. The GTX 320A fits into existing installations of selected Narco, King transponders using optional adapters for simple, cost-effective upgrading. A single board design allows for ease of serviceability and simple, standard, four-knob tuning. GTX 320A Trannsponder. P/N 11-18965..$1,650.00 GTX 320A With Harness..
