Dynon Avionics is pleased to announce its new D100 series avionics, integrating their best selling EFIS and EMS electronics with larger 7" diagonal, sunlight readable, color LCD displays. This new line boasts a stunning 854 x 480 pixel display with more than 3 times the resolution of the competition. This class-leading display not only translates into reduced eyestrain, but enables the viewing of additional data in a split screen format without compromising the fidelity of the primary flight instruments. Most importantly, this larger displays come without the huge price increase that might be expected.
The EFIS-D100 includes the same 10 in 1 instrument capability that made the EFIS-D10 series the market leader. This includes attitude, altimeter, airspeed, VSI, gyro-stabilized magnetic compass, turn coordinator, turn rate, clock/timer, G-meter, and voltmeter. Additionally, EFIS-D100 customers receive a remote compass module, a mounting tray and a USB-serial converter at no additional cost.
Options available are the same as those used for the EFIS-D10A series which include Battery Backup, Angle of Attack Pitot, Wiring Harness, Encoder Converter and an OAT probe for density altitude and true airspeed.
Upon initial release, those already familiar with the EFIS-D10A will be pleased to find that the EFIS-D100 is operated identically and contains the same software features and intuitive menu controls. Included also are all the most recent EFIS features such as laptop-free magnetic calibration and airspeed bar setup capability.
The EFIS-D100 split screen capability partitions the display to simultaneously show the primary flight instruments along with additional information as interchangeable panels. Three types of split screen panels will allow pilots to view real-time Active Flight Data, user-generated Checklists or Aviation Data all while never leaving the primary EFIS instruments behind.
The Checklist and Aviation Data panels are entered via connection to an external PC or laptop. Pilots may define up to 25 different pages of information for Checklist and Aviation Data. Each instrument comes with default Checklists covering startup, take-off, emergency etc. These list may also be utilized to define Aviation Data Panels, containing information such as aircraft speeds, ICAO alphabet, transponder codes, commonly used radio frequencies, flight plan report sequence or any other miscellaneous data pilots might find handy at their finger-tips.
In the future, other Active Flight Panels will be developed incorporating an exciting set of highly desirable features in a number of hotkey-swappable panels. This will include a directional gyro, flight timers, graphical VSI & G-Meter etc. Once Dynon's inter-display capability is fully implemented, Dynon will release a panel which will allow the EFIS to graphically display all engine monitor data from its EMS product line. Further out still will be a GPS connection to display useful metrics such as winds aloft, ground track and ground speed data.
The EFIS-D100 departs from the D10 series in that it uses an aluminum tray for mounting. This mounting system facilitates convenient front removal and retention like that used in radio installations.
Altitude Encoder Output
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.
