L-3 Avionics Systems is fielding the new Trilogy ESI-1000
Electronic Standby Instrument -- which should be certified and
available within a few weeks. Designed as a backup for glass
cockpit avionics, Trilogy is the first solid-state integrated
standby system created specifically for Part 23 aircraft.
Trilogy combines attitude, altitude, airspeed and optional
heading data on a clear, 3.7-inch diagonal Active Matrix LCD
display. The instrument fits easily into a standard 3-ATI mounting
cutout. With an integrated air data computer, solid-state attitude
sensor and optional external magnetometer, Trilogy presents
accurate flight information independently of other systems.
In the event of a primary glass failure, Trilogy facilitates a
smooth transition from primary to standby instrument because it
provides a common format to today's primary flight display. It
enhances safety by reducing workload and making the transition
easier for the pilot.
An ambient light sensor is integrated for automatic brightness
control on both the screen and keyboard. Trilogy units will
be calibrated to 400 knots and 55,000 feet, with the ability to
store aircraft configuration and options at time of installation.
The model will be available through OEMs as well as for retrofit to
modernize both glass and traditional cockpit configurations.
