AVIONICS

The standard avionics package includes dual radio communication system, dual audio, dual attitude and dual heading reference systems, dual VOR/ILS system, single ADF, single DME, dual Transponder, Radio Altimeter, weather radar and autopilot.

Remote Tuning Units

The communication equipment consists of a primary and a secondary VHF transceiver, each with a remote control/tuning unit, an antenna and interface with the aircraft audio system. The primary system is powered by the essential bus through the 7.5 Amp. COMM 1 circuit breaker located in the pilot circuit breaker panel, this allows the operation without the need of powering all the aircraft avionics and the operation of the primary VHF is accomplished by positioning the switch of the AVIONICS panel to COMM 1 ONLY position.

The secondary system is powered by the right avionics bus through the 7.5 Amp. COMM 2 circuit breaker on the copilot circuit breaker panel. The audio system consists of dual independent audio control panels incorporating electronic circuitry to provide pilot and copilot with transmit, receive, intercom (both keyed and voice activated) and page capability. The pilot panel is powered by the essential bus through the 3 Amp AUDIO 1 circuit breaker located in the pilot circuit breaker panel whereas the copilot one by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp AUDIO 2 circuit breaker on the copilot circuit breaker panel. The attitude reference systems include a primary and a secondary vertical gyro. The primary powered by the primary AC bus, provides attitude reference to EFIS (pilot electronic ADI) as well as to autopilot and weather radar antenna stabilization system. The secondary vertical gyros, powered by the secondary AC bus, provide attitude information to the copilot electromechanical ADI and EFIS system (if the cross-side attitude sensor is selected on the EFIS control panel).

The heading reference system includes a primary and a secondary compass system. Each one consists of a directional gyro slaved to a flux detector unit.

The primary compass system is powered by the essential avionics bus through the 3 Amp CMPS 1 PWR circuit breaker located on the pilot panel and provides heading signals to EFIS system (pilot electronic HSI and Multifunction Display), copilot RMl (if installed) and Autopilot (through the EFIS system).

The secondary compass system is powered by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp CMPS 2 PWR circuit breaker (on the copilot circuit breaker panel) and provides heading data to the copilot electronic HSI, pilot RMI and EFIS system (if the cross-side heading sensor is selected on EFIS control panel).

Two VHF radio navigation systems (VOR/ILS) are installed both interfaced with the same set of three antennas (VOR/LOC, GS and MKR). The standard installation consists of a primary VHF/NAV system, based on a VOR/ILS receiver with its own remote control/tuning unit,

AC reference is provided by the secondary AC bus. As an option the Marker Beacon receiver

of the secondary VHF/NAV system can be switched to the operational mode, with such

installation independent "on side" MKR indication and audio signals are available to the pilot and copilot.

The Automatic Direction Finder (ADF) system consists of a receiver, a remote control/tuning unit and an antenna. It is fed by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp ADF 1 circuit breaker located on the copilot circuit breaker panel and provides bearing data to EFIS system (pilot electronic HSI and Multifunction Display), copilot electronic HSI, pilot RMl and copilot RMI (if installed). A dual ADF installation can be provided as optional equipment. Bearing information from the secondary ADF is displayed on the pilot RMl and on the copilot RMI (if installed). The system is fed by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp ADF 2 circuit breaker located on the copilot circuit breaker panel.

The Distance Measuring Equipment (DME) consists of a DME transceiver (remotely controlled by the primary VHF/NAV control/tuning unit) and an antenna and provides slant range distance information to EFIS system and copilot electronic HSI. The system is powered by the left avionics bus through the 3 Amp DME 1 circuit breaker located in the pilot circuit breaker panel.

The weather radar (optionally with turbulence detection capability) consists of a control panel and a transceiver/antenna. Weather (and turbulence) information is displayed on EFIS (pilot electronic HSI and/or Multifunction Display). The system is powered by the right avionics bus through the 5 Amp RDR METEO circuit breaker panel on the copilot circuit breaker panel and the AC reference for pitch and roll signal is provided by the primary AC bus.

A primary and a secondary ATC transponder are installed; both apparatus are controlled by a single control unit located in the center section of the instrument panel. In the standard installation both the primary and secondary ATC transponder are connected with the pilot- encoding altimeter as single coded altitude information source. In the event the independent coded altitude reporting system are requested, an optional secondary encoder altimeter can be installed on the copilot instrument panel to be connected with the secondary ATC transponder. The primary transponder is powered by the essential avionics bus through the 3 Amp XPNDR 1 circuit breaker located on the pilot circuit breaker panel where as the secondary is fed by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp XPNDR 2 circuit breaker on the copilot circuit breaker panel.

The radio altimeter installed on the airplane consists of a transceiver, an indicator/control unit and two antennas. The system, powered by the right avionics bus through the 3 Amp RADIO ALTM circuit breaker on the copilot circuit breaker panel, interfaces with EFIS system and copilot ADI. Dual D.H. setting capability is offered while radio altitude and decision height information are provided both on pilot and copilot instrument panel. Radio altitude signal is also supplied to the autopilot system for aircraft control during ILS approach.
