MGL Avionics iEFIS Discovery Lite, Explorer Lite 8.5" and Challenger Lite 10.4" glass panels
The iEFIS Lite range consists of three different sized touch screen panels:
Challenger Lite: 10.4” XVGAExplorer Lite: 8.5” WGADiscovery Lite: 7” WGA
Challenger Lite, Explorer Lite and Discovery Lite do not require an iBOX and feature built in sensors and AHRS. These variants are intended for aircraft not requiring the full interface capability and this results in lower cost and simplified installation.
iEFIS is the most advanced and flexible touch-screen system money can buy.
In turbulence take full control using the buttons and knobs.
Enjoy worldwide mapping and display your own CAA charts with terrain and aviation database (update via a subscription from Pocket FMS)
Add to and manipulate the aviation database - add farm strips and fly simulated ILS approaches anywhere.
Select from a wide range of pre-installed screens or design your own on your PC. Up to 9 screens can be displayed and changed at the turn
of a knob.
Comprehensive and very flexible engine monitoring with full audio and visual alarms.
Traffic display using PilotAware, FLARM, XRX
Full autopilot functionality - just add MGL servos

The complete self-contained iEFISAHRS solid state gyros inside - no extra cost.All flight instruments.Connect to PilotAware for traffic display.Full EMS engine monitoring, just add an RDAC engine module.(No iBOX required with "lite" models)
Up to two "Lite” panels can be used in a single system and they can share RS232 ports and CAN bus devices.
A typical comprehensive functionality "Lite” panel may consist of:
A) One or two EFIS panelsB) One RDAC for engine monitoring plus probes as neededC) One SP-6 compassAdd to this:
D) One, two or three autopilot servos
E) SP-10 flap and trim controller
F) Extender module for Angle of Attack, OAT, and extra RS232, digital and analogue connections.
Also consider the large available range of compatible peripherals from MGL and third parties ranging from VHF radios, navigation radios, transponders, electronic circuit breakers and more.
iEFIS "Lite" rangeThe stand-alone iEFIS, with built-in AHRS.The Discovery has a bright non-reflective 7" touch screen of around 1000+ nits. The Explorer has a similar 8.5" touch screen. The Challenger's touch screen is 10.4".
They all look, feel and think like an iEFIS. They have the iEFIS G3 CPU and they run the exact same firmware as the full iEFIS system (in other words they use the same binary and sources).The Discovery looses a rotary control and the 12 buttons under the display which are now a fixture of the touch screen on the left side. The Explorer lite and Challenger lite retain the buttons and knobs. All gain a built in GPS, AHRS with gyros and accelerometers, airspeed pressure sensor as well as altimeter. They connect to peripherals via a CAN bus as well as two RS232 ports.So, considering the above, we can say the "lite" can do anything a full iEFIS can, subject to having fewer hardware interfaces - but because of that there is no need for a separate iBOX.The CAN bus supports everything we have - Autopilot servos, engine monitoring modules, flap and trim controller, tranponders, compass, etc.You can also connect an external AHRS if you like (highly recommended if you add autopilot servos) and you get RS232 ports for radios, ADSB etc.There is a small expansion module, the MGL Extender - if needed, it provides analogue and digital inputs, more RS232 ports, a AOA sensor and few additional items. The "Lite" is a stand-alone system, unlike our normal iEFIS systems where you can have multiple, joined panels in a complex infrastructure."Lites" are straight forward to install and make great panels for aircraft owners who want a sophisticated EFIS but without the cost and complications of a large system.A typical Lite system would be: The Discovery / Explorer / Challenger Lite panel, a RDAC for engine monitoring (if needed), perhaps a SP-6 compass. That's it. Add autopilot servos for an even greater overall deal...
