For anyone dealing with shrinking space on an instrument panel, Mid-Continent Instruments (Booth No. 2655) offers a small suggestion: a new two-inch course deviation indicator (CDI), which the company is unveiling here at the 2006 NBAA Convention.
Course Deviation Indicator
Mid-Continent Instruments introduced a two-inch course deviation indicator (CDI) miniature backup. The MD200 series’ small size allows operators to install an electromechanical CDI without taking up valuable panel real estate. In addition to its space-saving benefits, the needle of the CDI moves out of view if the instrument detects an invalid signal, eliminating the possibility of being taken off course by a problem with signal reception.
