Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS)
The Flight DEK-D180 incorporates state-of-the-art EFIS electronics design. The primary functions provided include attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed, gyro-stabilized magnetic compass, slip/skid ball, turn rate, clock, timers, g-meter, and HSI. This instrument features Dynon's advanced ADAHRS (Air Data, Attitude and Heading Reference System). This design integrates over a dozen solid-state sensors that deliver exceptional performance and reliability. With the exception of the remote compass, the ADAHRS is built directly into the EFIS-D180 instrument saving installation time and space. Each ADAHRS undergoes a rigorous calibration at the factory to ensure accuracy over its full operating range. Unlike mechanical gyros, Dynon's rugged design is tolerant to aggressive flight maneuvers, automatically corrects itself anytime its gyros' capabilities are exceeded and cannot be damaged by performing aerobatics.
Dynon's FlightDEK-D180 additionally features an Altitude Encoder Output for connection to a transponder and a density altitude and true airspeed calculator.
Engine Instrument System (EMS)
The Flight DEK-D180 replaces up to 16 different types of gauges. What makes this system so powerful is its ability to continuously monitor up to 27 available sensor inputs that cover the engine, fuel and other miscellaneous systems and annunciate any abnormality immediately upon detection. This constant scan significantly reduces the pilots workload while providing a more thorough and consistent review.
Dynon's FlightDEK-D180 utilizes an embedded, multi-processor design that delivers real-time performance and stability. This purpose-built design is unencumbered by burdensome operating systems that typically slow down performance and require long boot times. Dynon's software design enables complete control to maximize execution speed and deliver robust reliability. A hallmark of the FlightDEK-D180's performance and a great safety feature is its ability to display the correct attitude within a few seconds of being powered on while in flight.
A key safety feature available from Dynon is its optional AOA/Pitot design that combines Angle-of Attack (AOA) and Airspeed into a single pitot design. The AOA capability assists pilots on approaches and generates an alert signal for audible annunciation whenever nearing stall conditions. This pitot is available in heated and non-heated versions.
To guard against a power failure scenario, the FlightDEK-D180 may be optionally equipped with a Li-Ion Backup Battery. When power loss is detected the instrument will automatically notify the pilot and immediately begin running on battery power for a minimum of 1.5 hours to enable a safe landing.
Expanded EFIS/EMS Capabilities
In addition to expanded HSI functionality, the HS34 also provides several powerful features to interconnected Dynon instruments that include:
Use of the Value knob for adjusting the EFIS barometer, bugs, and timers.
A built-in light level sensor to automatically adjust the LCD screen brightness
Synthetic voice alert messages available for input to an intercom
Additional EMS general purpose and contact inputs
Auto pilot and other more traditional packages are available at cost however we recommend this system to enhance compatability with modern avionics and reduce Pilot work load.
This system is compatable with GPS and intelligence gathering equipment.
