Wichita, Kansas-based wire harness maker Global Aviation Technologies has introduced a new annunciator replacement panel for the de Havilland Dash 8 turboprop, the company announced here at the RAA Convention. A so-called “plug and play” modification, GAT’s new panel replaces and combines the current Honeywell-Grimes caution advisory panel (Part Number 80-5035-XX) and warning annunciator panels (Part Number 75-0434-X) for the Dash 8-100, -200 and -300, cutting in half the number of LRUs operators need to stock.

The replacement panel offers what Global calls superior lighting performance achieved through the combination of dual circuit redundancy and multiple LEDs in a series-parallel configuration. The approach, says Global, ensures uninterrupted service even in the event of a single LED failure. Finally, the company has designed the product to require “minimal” training for mechanics and allow the use of existing ground service equipment for maintenance support.
