Tucson, Arizona: Universal Avionics Systems Corporation has received TSO Authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration for its new Flat Panel Electronic Engine Instrument and Aircraft Systems Display Suite. The three-display suite is designed specifically for the Falcon 20 with 731 engines, and is being offered as part of an advanced avionics retrofit package by Garrett Aviation in Springfield, Illinois.
The suite comprises three 5x6 ATI active matrix LCD Flat Panel Integrated Displays (FPID) which are stacked in a vertical column in the center instrument panel. The top display shows all engine instrument and master fault panel information including N1 low pressure and N2 high pressure turbine speeds; ITT turbine temperature; oil temperature and pressure; fuel quantity, flow and usage; and warning and caution indicators. The middle display contains aircraft systems information such as landing gear and flap status; stabilizer, aileron and rudder position; cabin temperature and altitude; hydraulic fluid quantity and pressure; as well as the standby instrument displays of ADI/HSI, altitude, and airspeed. The bottom display accommodates Universal Avionics’ TAWS Terrain Awareness and Warning System views in 3-D, map or profile perspectives. It can also be utilized to display weather graphics via the UniLink Air-to-Ground Communications System. In the event of multiple display failures or loss of primary aircraft electrical power, a composite display combining the critical elements of the engine instrument/master fault panel and the systems/standby instrument displays may be selected on any of the three displays.
The suite is part of Universal Avionics’ new line of Flat Panel Integrated Displays which provide superior sunlight readability, wide viewing angles, high contrast and high reliability.
