Because some like to keep it simple, Dynon offers this basic, even more affordable Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS). Perfect for pilots who want to save panel weight, space, and installation time compared to a conventional analog gauges.

The EFIS-D6 fits into a standard 3-1/8" panel hole, making it an ideal candidate for replacing vacuum and electric attitude indicators.
Dynon's advanced ADAHRS (Air Data, Attitude and Heading Reference System) integrates over a dozen solid-state sensors that deliver exceptional performance and reliability. With the exception of the remote compass, the ADAHRS is built inside the EFIS-D6 instrument housing, saving installation time and space. Each ADAHRS undergoes a rigorous calibration regime 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 aerobatics or unusual attitudes.
Dynon's EFIS-D6 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 EFIS-D6'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 EFIS-D6 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 2 hours to enable a safe landing.

Dynon's remote compass module permits magnetic heading to be sensed in an area of the aircraft where magnetic interference is minimal. Positioning is critical, so the instructions in the installation guide should be closely adhered to. Following calibration, the remote compass will yield excellent results with an accuracy of just a couple degrees.
The remote compass is available as an option for the EFIS-D10A, which has a set of internal magnetic sensors.
The EFIS-D6, EFIS-D60, and EFIS-D100 and the FlightDEK-D180 come with the remote compass module standard.
Altitude Encoder Output
Aircraft equipped with a transponder require an external signal input from an altitude reporting device, in the form of an altitude encoder or an encoding altimeter. Dynon's EFIS and FlightDEK instruments always provide this signal output as a standard feature.
Dynon's altitude signal output is an RS-232 serial data stream that is compatible with newer style transponders like the Garmin GTX-330 and GTX-327. Transponders only accepting the traditional gray code (sometimes called Gillham code) input require Dynon's optional encoder converter module.
