EIS (DMC & DU) -
The Electronic Instrument System (
) is an avionics system connected with most of the aircraft systems to carry outthe two main functions:- EFIS ( Electronic Flight Information System )- ECAM ( Electronic Maintenance Aircraft Monitoring ).The system is mainly composed of:
Six identical display units ( DU )
including integrated graphics generator are located in the cockpit:- two Primary Flight Displays ( PFD ) + two Navigation Displays ( ND ) for EFIS ( Electronic Flight Instrument System )- one engine warning display + one system display for ECAM ( Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring )
Three Display Management Computers ( DMC )
located in he avionics compartment;- images generation to be displayed on PFD, ND and ECAM Dus.- digital data links to display units.- DMC 3 may replaced either No 1 or No 2 DMC by switching in the cockpit.
Two System Data Acquisition Concentrators ( SDAC ):
- acquiring systems data for transmission of caution to FWCs and systems condition to DMCs.
Two Flight Warning Computers ( FWC )
- generating alert messages, aural alerts and procedural messages for display on ECAM.
Thales Avionics provides the three DMC and six DU.
