Unlike other systems the horizon display is generated from an internal Crossbow AHRS that is based on certified boards and software. The display features a clear and easy to read airspeed indication with user adjustable color ranges, the altimeter is set using a familiar and convenient adjustment knob (other systems require numerous buttons presses), and the heading display is generated from a remote mounted magnetometer. The heading can be displayed on a tape across the top or with the EFIS DG. Other flight instruments functions include a slip ball and user-configurable g-meter.
Aircraft Monitoring and Data Acquisition System
Developed from the successful AF-2500, 3500, and 4500 monitor, the system continuously monitors and displays not only all aircraft engine data but several other aircraft functions as well. Unlike other systems, the display can be customized to the user's preference. Any of the standard instruments can be eliminated or added to the screen.
The ADVANCED Moving Map will interface to most external GPS recievers giving you a large and easy to read display, It currently displays public and private airports, terrain, obstacles, airspaces, state lines, navigational beacons, intersections, and water. Airport information is also displayed; including runways, frequencies, traffic patterns, elevation, pattern altittude and fuel availability. Add the optional XM reciever module for XM Weather. Traffic can be displayed on the map from a zaon XRS, Garmin GTX330 Transponder, or the NavWorx ADS-B reciever.
Keep track of oil changes, Annual inspections, ELT Batteries,Filters, Brakes, and more.
Fly safe with AOA! Patented AOA technology can be purchased as an option for AF-5000 screens.
Any of the AFS screens can be configured as an EFIS , Engine Monitor or both if hardware modules are installed in the same screen. Connect an EFIS screen with an Engine Monitor screen using the Advanced Avionics Bus and you can display the EFIS, Engine Monitor, or both on either screen. You can even connect an EFIS/Engine Monitor screen with an EFIS screen giving you a system with multiple Attitude Heading Reference Systems (AHRS). The optional Angle-Of-Attack module can be added to the screen giving you superior and proven AOA technology on the EFIS display.
High Performance AHRS is Rated at 8g's and a 500deg/second roll rate.
AFS systems are designed to run for over an hour, in the event of an electrical failure, using the Lithium battery. The battery is continually recharged by the EFIS. The internal battery also will power the EFIS when the voltage drops on an engine start.
All AFS systems have a full-featured voice alert system. Lose oil pressure, for instance, and you will immediately hear “Check Oil Pressure.”
Geo-Referenced Sectionals are updated every 28 days, and can be displayed in full screen or split screen modes.
Geo-Referenced IFR Charts are updated every 28 days, and can be displayed in full screen or split screen modes.
Geo-Referenced Approach Plates are updated every 28 days, and can be displayed in full screen or split screen modes.
Geo-Referenced will display your aircraft's location as well as the location of surrounding traffic on all maps, charts, and airport diagrams.
Custom Map Airplane
Draw an image to the specifications outlined in the manual to have your own aircraft or image displayed on your maps and charts.
The ADVANCED Moving Map will calculate and display airports that are within your aircrafts engine out glide range.
Weather and Traffic
The ADVANCED Weather/Traffic is optional, and requires a XM reciever module or Navworx ADS-B Reciever. Enables a live NEXRAD, METAR, TFR, Wind aloft, and Traffic.
Any ADVANCED Screen can tune the XM radio with the required subscription.
EFIS HSI Truly WAAS Compatible
The display integrates aircraft heading with GPS, VOR, Localizer and Glide Slope information. Garmin’s new WAAS enabled 430 has substantially different software from non-WAAS 430 units. AFS has extensively tested the new Garmin 430W, 530W, 650, and 750 units with our EFIS systems in multiple configurations (i.e. single and dual screen EFIS with 430W, 530W, SL30, 496, Zaon Traffic unit, etc.). AFS has performed numerous actual ILS and LPV approaches to verify that the 430W interface truly works, including the ability to send OBS Course and heading data from the EFIS back to the 430W. AFS systems also auto-migrate the flight plan and approach from the 430W to the map screen.
Remote Radio Tuning
Tune your SL30 or KRT2 Radio Remotely from any EFIS Screen
Weight & Balance
Allows you to calculate your W&B in seconds.
Landing Gear Warning
The Pilot will be prompted to check landing gear if the gear is down at a set high airspeed, or up at a set low airspeed. Amphibious aircraft are prompted to select "Runway" or "Water" and are then given audible wordings depending on the position of the landing gear.
Vertical Power VP-X Integration
The AF-5000 series systems are capable of interfacing to the VP-X electronic circuit breaker power system. Electrical Systems can be assesed and control through the VP-X page.
