The EFIS-D10A Electronic Flight Information System provides a solid-state solution for the ten most important instruments you need. The flight data are all ergonomically arranged onto a single, bright sunlight readable, color liquid crystal display to optimize functionality and panel space.
- Attitude Indicator
- Airspeed Indicator
- Vertical Speed Indicator
- Gyro-Stabilized Compass Heading
- Turn Coordinator/Ball
- Turn Rate
- Angle-of-Attack (with optional Dynon AOA pitot)
- Serial altitude encoder output to your transponder
Thousands of experimental and LSA aircraft already fly Dynon products worldwide. Based on this success developing avionics for a fleet of over 15,000 Dynon-equipped aircraft, the EAA, FAA, and Dynon partnered to gain FAA approval for the installation of Dynon’s EFIS-D10A in type certificated GA aircraft.
The Dynon EFIS-D10A is the first product to be STC approved. The EFIS-D10A is a full 4” Primary Flight Display that includes attitude, airspeed, altimeter, magnetic heading, turn rate, inclinometer, g-meter, winds, and more. Other capabilities include Angle-of-Attack and internal backup battery.
The initial STC allows the EFIS-D10A to replace the existing primary attitude indicator in Cessna 150, 152, 172 and Piper PA-28 and PA-38 series aircraft with a modern EFIS that contains no moving parts. More aircraft approvals are expected to follow.
All Sensors Inside
The EFIS-D10A instrument includes 15 solid-state sensors all inside the instrument housing eliminating any complicated installation problems. These sensors include accelerometers, pressure transducers, temperature sensors, gyros, and magnetometers. If desired, an optional external compass/magnetometer and outside air temperature probe may be added to your system.
Save Space, Weight, Time & Money
Your instrument panel is one of the larger investments you're likely to make. Considerable money and space savings can be realized when selecting the EFIS-D10A system. This compact design optimally replaces 10 flight instruments plus your altitude encoder all in one easy to install packaged system. Not only do you free up valuable panel space, but significantly save on installation time and complexity.
The solid-state design uses no moving parts, inherently making it more reliable than traditional mechanical gyros and vacuum systems. It's a favorite among aerobatic pilots whose maneuvers cannot harm the instrument.
Note: This EFIS-D10A is intended for the Experimental aircraft category and is not certified for installation in certified aircraft.
Providing pitch and roll information is one of the primary functions of the EFIS-D10A. The full screen effect of the attitude information provides an intuitive and easy to read background, on which the data below is presented.
Altimeter and Rate of Climb
Altitude data is displayed with an analog bar graph and a digital readout to provide the maximum awareness to the pilot.
Airspeed and Angle of Attack
Airspeed is displayed both digitally and as a scrolling bar, with green, yellow, red and white airspeeds easily customizable for your aircraft. Stall prevention is enhanced with an angle of attack bar display also color coded with green, yellow and red. Angle of attack information is obtained from Dynon's unique pitot probe.
360-degree scrolling compass data is displayed along the top of the screen. Heading information is electronically derived from solid-state magnetic field sensors.
Turn Coordinator & Lateral Acceleration Ball
Turn rate information is presented and calibrated against a standard rate turn. Solid-state accelerometers provide the ball function to aid coordinated turns.
Voltmeters, G-meter, Clock, Timer...
Many useful meters can be displayed by selecting or deselecting items through the menu system.
The EFIS-D10A & D100 outputs altitude encoder data via serial communications using an ASCII formatted message. The change from parallel gray code used by the EFIS-D10 & D100 model was to free up connection pins for other features and be compatible with newer transponders coming out on the market.
Dynon does not have a listing of serial equipped/compatible transponders available in the market. You'll need to purchase an altitude encoder if the transponder you currently own or are considering only accepts a parallel input. There are no serial to parallel converters that we know about.
The EFIS-D10A provides a setup menu that allows you to select from one of 4 possible protocols and an altimeter resolution of either 10 or 00 feet. The combination of these two selections should make the EFIS-D10A compatible with most serial input capable transponders.
- Protocol 1: Garmin AT/UPS AT 1200 baud
- Protocol 2: Magellan 1200 baud
- Protocol 3: Northstar, Garmin 2400 baud
- Protocol 4: Trimble, Garmin 9600 baud
When purchasing a new transponder or looking to see if your existing unit is compatible, please check with your owners manual, manufacturer's representative or local avionics shop - please do not call Dynon.
