Default Aithre 2.0 Install vs. 3.0

Curious if anyone knows if Van's includes anything 'special' in regards to the Aithre 3.0 CO install kit? It's $400 on Aithre's website and $410 on Van's.

I have a Dynon HDX system with the SV-EMS-220. In reading the Van's service letter, it looks like I would need to choose between SPO2 and O2 due to limited inputs on the SV-EMS-220 (after, of course, the CO connection is made).

I honestly do not care about either SPO2 or O2 for the flying I do (pretty much 9500 and below over flat land (Ohio).

Net, given that I can't take advantage of all the capabilities of the 3.0 Aithre anyway, I started looking at the Aithre 2.0 on their website. This one is only $300 vs. $400 and has the same CO detection sensitivity and resolution as the 3.0.

Seems to me I can save $100 and get the same CO detection. My main question is will the Van's Dynon files be configured to pick it up automatically and will install be any more complicated (sure doesn't seem so...just 3 wires).

Default Aithre 2.0

I haven't installed one but I come to the same conclusion as you. I think a 2.0 will work fine.

If anyone has installed a 2.0 or if you know of a reason why it won't work, please post here.

Default Aithre Shield EX 2.0

Have the Aithre Shield EX 2.0. I integrated it into the G3X touch via the GEA-24 50 or 37 Sub-D connector. Don't remember what pins I used as I did this back in January before it was available.

Iíve been considering installing the SL00010 Optional Aithre Shield EX 3.0 Carbon Monoxide Detector also. Has anyone installed one in a RV-12 with a dual Skyview Touch system? Iím curious where you mounted it and what does it look like on the EMS?
