Split Screen Capability
Dynon's class-leading high resolution LCD not only translates into reduced eyestrain, but also enables viewing of additional data in a split-screen format without compromising the fidelity of the primary flight instruments. The new split-screen feature partitions the display to simultaneously show the primary flight instruments along with additional interchangeable pages. This presentation method is much preferred and superior over systems that force the pilot to pick one view at the loss of another vital function.
How it Works
The new split-screen feature partitions the screen into two parts. Each split portion of the screen may be filled with pages either supplied by the native instrument or by another Dynon instrument connected via the DSAB (Dynon Smart Avionics Bus).
The display is available in a variety of screen configurations as depicted below.
Each pages is written specifically for and optimized for each screen size. For example, everything possible on a full (3/3) screen size EFIS page will not be available on the smaller 1/3 EFIS page.
Selecting the Desired Screen
Up to 10 predefined screen configurations may be stored in the instrument at this time. Pilots may arrange the available configured screens in the order desired. Access to each screen in flight is directly accessible via hotkey buttons that will sequence through a pre-ordered list known as the "Hotkey Rotation".
Not all defined screen configurations need to be sequenced into the Hotkey Rotation. They are typically reserved only for those screens most often needed or desired in flight. A separate menu is provided to allow pilots to call up the entire list of stored screens whenever occasion demands.
Every possible split screen configuration available on the FlightDEK-D180, EFIS-D100, and EMS-D120 can be viewed here.
