Heli-Expo 2011: Universal Avionics EFI-890R Flat-panel Display Suite Meets Helicopter Vibration Specs

Universal Avionics’ new EFI-890R flat-panel display suite was recently tested and successfully qualified for several helicopter-specific vibration profiles covering 13 known models, signifying a new installation platform for the product.

The high-vibration environment in which rotorcraft operate presents a unique challenge to avionics manufacturers. Equipment proven rugged enough for installation in helicopters must meet RTCA/DO-160F standards, in particular, testing for vibration levels far exceeding those for fixed-wing aircraft.

Visitors to Heli-Expo 2011 may observe and operate the EFI-890R at the Universal exhibit (Booth No. 4650). The integrated flat panel displays offer significant improvement in situational awareness and safety essential for the unique operational requirements of rotary-wing aircraft, including synthetic vision display.
