Dynon's EFIS-D10A is one of the most popular Electronic Flight Information Systems on the market today. This instrument fits into a standard 3-1/8" panel hole, making it an ideal candidate for replacing vacuum and electric attitude indicators.
This innovative design consolidates all your flight instruments into a sunlight-readable, 4” diagonal, color LCD. Six buttons below the LCD allow pilots to perform flight related functions, configure the instrument and perform initial calibrations.
Key safety features include Dynon's optional Angle-of Attack/ Pitot design that alerts pilots of potential stall conditions and an optional Li-ion backup battery which will keep the instrument running for 2 hours in the event of a power bus failure.
Dynon's advanced ADAHRS (Air Data, Attitude and Heading Reference System) integrates over a dozen solid-state sensors that deliver exceptional performance and reliability. All the ADAHRS sensors are built inside the EFIS-D10A 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-D10A 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-D10A'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-D10A 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.
The EFIS-D10A is equipped with a PC serial interface which provides the capability of uploading up to 25 user-defined lists for use as checklists, aviation data or other information that pilots wish to keep handy. The PC interface additionally facilitates downloading lifetime free program updates from Dynon's website.
Cockpits equipped with more than one type of Dynon instrument can benefit from the connection capability that comes via the Dynon Smart Avionics Bus (DSAB). When linked via DSAB, pages displayed on one instrument may be shared for display on other Dynon instruments. DSAB not only allows you to share the fun with your co-pilot but delivers Dynon generated data directly to the instrument in front of you whenever you call upon it.
Dynon has developed a series of expansion modules that add new capabilities and functionality to its existing line of D10/D100 Series EFIS, EMS and FlightDEK avionics. These optional modules provide exceptional value and performance while preserving the affordability of Dynon’s existing equipment. This modular concept promotes greater flexibility when configuring new aircraft panel systems and facilitates future expansion if so desired.
Each expansion module is network connected to its line of avionics via the Dynon Smart Avionics Bus (DSAB). This two wire connection not only simplifies wiring but can extend individual module benefits to multiple interconnected Dynon instruments.
