universal avionics offers new touchscreen control device for insight™
October 17, 2018
Universal Avionics (UA) is offering a new touchscreen model for the InSight Display System’s EFIS Control Display Unit (ECDU). The company’s latest offering further improves the InSight Display System, offering a choice for advanced operation in addition to the traditional InSight ECDU.
The Touch ECDU combines multiple InSight System controls, including the flight displays, FMS, radios, weather, traffic, and terrain into a centralized control device.
“The Touch ECDU provides a well sought-after man-machine interface,” said Dan Reida, UA Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Support. “Designed for efficiency, the Touch ECDU provides fast, easy access to programming InSight, improving upon the already easy-to-use system,” he added. “It’s a smarter way to utilize touchscreen technology and reflects UA’s continuous investment to making sure our user interface is state-of-the-art.”
The ECDU eliminates the need for external panels that take up valuable cockpit space by integrating with the PFD/MFD and standalone radios. The Touch ECDU combines the functionality of the traditional ECDU with an even more intuitive interface for an enhanced, easy user experience. Operators can now use the Touch ECDU, Cursor Control Panel (CCP), or both for unique and intuitive ‘Point and Click’ system control.
Pending FAA certification, UA expects the Touch ECDU and corresponding InSight software update to be available by the end of 2018.
