The Astronics Max-Viz 600 infrared enhanced vision system is now covered under a Cessna service bulletin for retrofit installation in late-model Cessna single-engine airplanes. The bulletin includes Skyhawks, Skylanes and Stationairs that have already been factory-provisioned for the FAA- and EASA-approved upgrade. Cessna authorized service centers can install the Max-Viz 600 EVS in about eight hours. The system’s uncooled long-wave infrared sensor is combined with a low-light CMOS camera to provide a software-fused image to help pilots see through haze, light fog, smoke and precipitation and at night. On a Garmin G1000 avionics system, the fused image is displayed on the MFD. The Max-Viz 600 uses technology similar to that of the Max-Viz 1500, but without the optical zoom or dual-field view capabilities.
