The purpose of the common display system (CDS) is to supply navigation and These are the things that determine the information that shows on the
engine information to the flight crew. displays units :

External Interfaces. - Display unit status,


The computer for the CDS is the display electronics unit (DEU). Many avionic - Display unit location,
and airframe systems interface with the DEUs. These systems send ARINC 429, - Selections made on the control panels and modules,
analog, and discrete data to the DEUs. The DEUs send ARINC 429, analog, and
discrete data to these systems. These are the formats that show on the display units :

- Six identical display units (DUs)
- Two brightness control panels The DEUs also are the interface between some avionic and airframe systems.
- Two remote light sensors (RLSs). For example, the DEUs receive BITE data from the electronic engine controller
(EEC) and auxiliary power unit (APU). The DEUs send this data to the flight

These are the six control panels : Each DEU sends data on two cross channel buses to the other DEU.
The two output buses have different information.
- Captains display select panel,
- First officers display select panel,
- Engine display control panel,
- Captains EFIS control panel,
- First officers EFIS control panel,
- Navigation/displays source select panel.

Display Select Panels.


The display select panels send 8 discretes to each EFIS control panel.
The discretes show the selector position.

Engine Display Control Panel.


The engine display control panel sends 18 discretes to each EFIS control panel.
The discretes show selector and switch positions.

EFIS Control Panels.


The EFIS control panels have inputs from the display switching modules and
the engine control module. The EFIS control panels convert these discretes to
an ARINC 429 signal and send the information to the display electronic units
(DEU).

The EFIS control panels also send range information to the weather radar
transceiver.

Navigation/Displays Source Select Panel.


On this panel, there are two selectors. One is the display source selector and
one is the control panel select switch. Each selector sends three discretes to
each DEU. The discretes show the selector position.

5. REMOTE LIGHT SENSOR.

Two remote light sensors (RLSs) are on the top forward part of the glareshield.
The sensors point forward. The RLSs measure ambient light with a photodiode
sensor and supply an analog signal in proportion to the ambient light.
The left RLS sends the analog signal to the left outboard display unit. The right
RLS sends an analog signal to the right outboard display unit. The display unit
sends these values to the DEU. The DEU uses this input with other manual and
automatic inputs to calculate the brightness value for all display units.

Physical Description.
Each sensor weighs less that 1/2 pound. The RLS has a field of view of 70
degrees left, 70 degrees right, 40 degrees up and 15 degrees down.

(LCD) units. The display units (DUs) show this type of information: SURFACE MOVEMENT.

- Primary flight information, NOTE : Remove the plastic covers from the connectors before you install a DU.
- Navigation information,
- Engine information.

Physical Description.
The DUs are rack mounted. The DUs are 8 inches (20.3 cm) by 8 inches and
are 9.75 inches (24.8 cm) deep. Each DU weighs approximately 18 pounds
(8.2 kg).

There is a bezel light sensor (BLS) at the bottom edge of the face plate.

Internal Temperature Detectors.


Each DU has internal temperature detectors. If the internal temperature gets
too hot, the power supply shuts down the display unit. When the DU cools,
the display unit comes on again.

The left outboard, left inboard, and upper center display units use blow-
through cooling. The right outboard, right inboard, and lower center display
unit use draw-through cooling.

Training Information Point.


The six DUs are interchangeable. Because of the viewing angle limitations of
LCD technology, the installation of the lower DU is turned 180 degrees from
the other DUs. The lower center DU handle is at the top.

When you remove or install the inboard or outboard DUs, you must move the
control column.
