The Perfect Fit™ for Helicopter Flight Decks
The EFI-890H offers flexibility for installation as a stand-alone Primary Flight Display (PFD) or Multi-Function Display (MFD), as well as a fully integrated PFD / Navigation Display (ND) cockpit system. The unit is optimally sized, featuring a lightweight, compact housing while offering a large, 8.9-inch diagonal active-matrix LCD display.
This high-resolution, high-contrast display provides superior readability throughout a full range of ambient lighting conditions including bright sunlight and dim nighttime environments. Extremely wide horizontal and vertical viewing angles are also accommodated.
For missions flown under night vision goggles, the EFI-890H includes a model option with lighting filters uniquely adapted for nighttime tactical missions.
The EFI-890H features a unique LED backlight system with reduced power requirements that produces lower unit operating temperature for superior reliability. This LED backlight system produces brighter, clearer displays with improved color uniformity and higher performance in low luminance operations.
Mission Performance for IFR Conditions
The EFI-890H supports an array of information and display capabilities for helicopter operators. To complement the display of primary flight data, a collective cue flight guidance display provides for optimal collective control when in “4D” (4 axis) coupled autopilot mode, to aid in maintaining the desired flight path. Visual guidance on the PFD is presented in two configurable formats to meet operator preference, the “dual cue” cross pointer or “single cue” V-bar overlay.
The EFI-890H offers an advanced, large-format instrument suite that interfaces with many of your existing aircraft / flight deck systems. It supports the display of Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS), broadcast weather, infrared and color cameras as well as a host of other interfaces.
The MFD-890H Multi-Function Display is designed for rotorcraft operators who want the benefits of glass-cockpit displays at a fraction of the cost and complexity associated with a full avionics suite replacement. It is fully compatible with the EFI-890H system, allowing the unit you install today to become part of a complete cockpit retrofit at a later time. This platform provides integral input/output ports and symbol generators in every display, and the use of display controls via discrete and common electronics
Primary Flight Display with Vision-1™ Egocentric View
Advanced display technology and innovative presentation symbology combine to provide you with all the information you need, extensive, yet uncluttered. The PFD displays flight guidance, airspeed, vertical speed, altitude and heading, along with every bug, marker and other detail desired over a full-screen ADI display. Multiple optional display formats are pilot-selectable, including Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System. In composite mode, the PFD adds Map or HSI displays in 360° and 120° arc formats* with weather radar display when interfaced to a compatible radar system.
Navigation Display with Mission Computer (EuroNav 7)
The Navigation Display (ND) presents Map and HSI views, as well as a host of interfacing components including the Vision-1 Synthetic Vision System and mission computers such as the EuroAvionics EuroNav 7. As shown below, a navigation progress data block in the upper portion of the screen is provided for most ND modes. This progress bar provides information pertinent to the intended path of flight such as time and distance to the “TO” waypoint, next waypoint and destination along with UTC, ETA, SAT and ISA variation.
An array of Dzus-mounted control panels support 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-display configurations with dedicated/shared control. Model options for compatibility with night vision goggles are also available.
Course/Heading Control Panel is available in single or dual control format. It controls setting of the heading reference bug and short range NAV source course, with a “push to sync” function available for both.
Reference Select Control Pane supports setting of Speed and Altitude Reference Bugs on the PFD, Altitude Preselect andairspeed/altitude units of measure. Available in either a single or dual control format.
PFD Combined Display Control Panel provides for NAV / BRG source select, baro altitude / minimums select, RA / DA toggle, ADC revert, attitude / heading revert, display revert, and source transfer for the on-side PFD and ND/MFD. Also
provides for selection of terrain, weather, and traffic for the on-side PFD. This is not a weather radar control panel. This control panel is also available in a vertical format.
Display and Radar Control Panel provides for weather radar range, antenna tilt, and mode control for compatible weather radar systems. It also provides for traffic, terrain, and external video selection for the ND/MFD.
Display Control Panel provides for traffic, terrain, weather and external video selection for the ND/MFD.
