EFI-890R LED Glass Displays Chosen for 'Do 228 New Generation' Aircraft
- We are pleased to expand on our long standing partnership with RUAG
The EFI-890R Glass Display features an adaptable design proving valuable in forward-fit and retrofit applications with interface capabilities for numerous flight deck instruments including digital engine display. The Do 228 third-party Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System (EICAS) will provide critical primary flight data, engine indication, Central Alert and Warning System (CAWS) and fuel data from several onboard instruments in a large, centralized high-resolution digital display. The EICAS, combined with graphical output of TAWS and Vision-1(r) SVS on the EFI-890R, provides unprecedented situational awareness for the crew. Vision-1(r) Synthetic Vision System (SVS) will be incorporated into the design late next year.

Integrated digital cockpits like the new Do 228 New Generation (NG) aircraft also significantly lower maintenance and repair costs while improving reliability. The aircraft is expected to be of value for both civil and military application.
"We are pleased to expand on our long standing partnership with RUAG by bringing the latest technology displays to the Do 228 NG flight deck," says Dan Reida, Vice President of Marketing and Sales for Universal Avionics. "Glass cockpits are a safety improvement that should be available to all customers purchasing aircraft today."
