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.

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.

EFI-890H Control Panels

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.

EFI-890H Control Panels

Reference Select Control Panel 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.

EFI-890H Control Panels

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.

EFI-890H Control Panels

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.
