The breakthrough, best-selling SkyView Touch system set the standard for marrying intuitive touchscreen control with a full set of hard, tactile controls for use in turbulence. One of SkyView Touch's strengths is that its identical panel cutout, power consumption, and wiring mean that existing SkyView customers can upgrade to Touch with a "plug and play" upgrade.
SkyView Classic, SkyView Touch, and SkyView HDX displays use the same modules and accessories. SkyView Touch displays can only connect to other SkyView Touch and SkyView Classic displays in an aircraft.
SkyView Displays: Very bright, high-resolution screens driven by advanced graphics processors create highly visible and readable display. Even in direct sunlight!
SkyView Displays utilize TFT active matrix LCD screens and LED backlighting technology for increased life span, more uniform brightness, and reduced power consumption.
Buttons and Joysticks: The SkyView System is designed for ease of use while flying. The most used functions are accessed via two rotary/multi-direction Joysticks, for fast intuitive commands. Almost all other in flight commands, using the widely spaced buttons, are only two button presses away. None or more than three button presses.
Redundancy: If two displays are in the system, either one can act as the Primary Flight Display, Moving Map, and Engine Monitor. The unlikely loss of either display will not affect the functionality of the other.
System Battery Backup: A system backup battery will provide over an hour of backup power to a Display and Modules. Each Display requires its own Backup Battery for redundancy.
Connections: Each display contains:
1 - 37-Pin DIN Connector for the main wiring harness
2 - 9-Pin DIN Connector for the SkyView Networks
2 - USB Connectors
1 - Ethernet Connector, used to synchronize data between displays.
Connections:A main wiring harness is included with each display. It connects to the display via the D37 connector, with leads to connect to:
USB Connector on a 3-foot lead
5 serial ports, including one for GPS NMEA input
4 Discrete general purpose inputs
Panel dim input/output
Battery backup connector
