The Primus 1000 Avionics System (Honeywell) – the IC600 flight guidance computerDual IC600’s, dual air data computers (ADC), the Primus Weather Radar system, and the HoneywellPrimus II integrated radio system (RMU).The Primus 1000 Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) – 4 Display Units (DU’s) driven by twoSignal Generators (SG’s) which reside within the IC’s.IC#1 – runs DU1 and DU2IC#2 – runs DU3 and DU4
Data Acquisition Units
IC’s receive data from the DAU’s, ADC’s, AHRS’s, Navigation systems, FMS’s, autopilot and othersystems to generate the information displayed on the EFIS system.
has several bugs and trend indicators. These make it easy once you figure them out.Lead them slightly.Speed Trend – pink bar on right side – shows where airspeed will be in 10 secondsOverspeed Indicator – red bar left side at topLow Airspeed Awareness – red bar left side bottomMach Indicator – shown at bottom of airspeed tapeSet bugs by using speed knobAbnormal Conditions – digits amber when overspeed imminent / digits red during overspeedComparison Alert – IAS in amber – when speeds
5 kts, (.1 Mach) – indicates ADC problem- red X indicates ADC failure
– Right tape on PFDAlt. Select Digital Readout – set through ASEL knob (top center panel)FD/AP won’t level off if GS is green (captured)Double Chevron – for 1000’s / single chevron – for 500’sRA – detects low altitude awareness (brown box at bottom of tape)Trend Bug – magenta left side of tape – where you will be in 6 secondsAlt Bug – won’t show if off scaleComparison Alert – ALT in amber – when ADC’s are outside of 200’Red X – ADC failureBaro Indication – toggles between inches and millibars / set with BARO SET knob (bottom rightPFD)Set BARO/RA button to set bug for DH (bottom left PFD)
