B SECTION I GENERAL INFORMATION 1.1 INTRODUCTION

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

This manual contains information relative to the physical, mechanical, and electrical characteristics of the BENDIX/KING KDF 806 ADF System. Installation and operating procedures are also included.

1.2

EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION

The KDF 806 ADF system is comprised of the KDF 806 ADF receiver, a KFS 586 or KFS 586A control head, and the KA 44B antenna unit. The KDF 806 receiver is solid state with a self-contained microprocessor which provides bearing information to stations in the 190KHz to 1799KHz frequency band, along with audio reception, enabling the pilot to identify stations and listen to transcribed weather broadcasts or commercial radio stations in the AM broadcast band. Its tuning circuitry utilizes a single reference frequency crystal and a large scale integrated circuit (LSI) frequency synthesizer. The KDF 806 is an extremely compact remote mounted ADF unit. It provides DC Sine/Cosine outputs, or 400Hz, 3-wire synchro outputs for indicator drive. It can be operated from any DC input from 11 to 33 volts. Power consumption is only 15 watts at any input voltage; therefore, forced air cooling is not required. The KFS 586 is a frequency and function control head used with the KDF 806 ADF receiver. It contains a multiplexed gas discharge display that exhibits the active and standby frequencies. The KFS 586 switches power to the receiver, controls the operating modes and the audio output level, and selects the frequency of operation. The KFS 586A is a frequency and function control head used with the KDF 806 ADF receiver or as part of a Frequency Management System. It can be used in either a single or tandem installation. It contains a multiplexed gas discharge display that exhibits the active and standby frequencies in its Frequency mode of operation. In Channel mode it exhibits channel number and frequency and in Program mode it exhibits program channel number and frequency. The KFS 586A switches power to the receiver, controls the operating modes and the audio output level, and selects the frequency of operation. An automatic dimming circuit adjusts the brightness of the display to compensate for changes in ambient light level. A single-chip, self-contained microprocessor controls the display, and the tuning circuitry. A non-volatile electrically alterable read only memory (EAROM) stores the active and stand-by frequencies even after the unit is turned off. Mounting dimensions are compatible with the new King Gold Crown line. An "X" appears on KFS 586 display when the ADF is not pointing. Optional External Features: External flag output. DC Sine/Cosine or 3-wire synchro indicator outputs selectable with jumper and 400Hz input. Jumper to permit interface with KNI 581. Jumper available to allow selection of 2182KHz international distress frequency. Superflag Output (071-1077-01 version) - To interface with EFIS systems. The KA 44B Antenna Unit contains both loop and sense antennas, preamplifiers, and modulators which combine the antenna signals into a single RF signal which is output to the receiver via a triaxial cable, the length of which is non-critical.

ACCESSORIES REQUIRED, BUT NOT SUPPLIED


INDICATOR REQUIREMENTS

Indicators KNI 582, KI 229, KI 228, KI 227 are recommended as optional equipment to provide ADF pointing. The KDF 806 is also compatible with the KNI 581 indicator by connecting the appropriate jumper to pin 14 of the 806, refer to interconnect drawings (FIGURE 2-14 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586, FIGURE 2-15 ADF SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A, FIGURE 2-16 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A (TANDEM), and FIGURE 2-17 KFS 586A REPEATER INTERCONNECT). . The recommended indicators are listed below with part numbers and descriptions. 1. The KNI 582 ADF RMI (P/N 066-3060-00/03) provides ADF and VOR to the station bearing information. This information is presented by two pointers which are read against the compass card to provide magnetic bearing information. The ADF or VOR information presented by each pointer is selectable by the two front panel mounted switches. The servo driven compass card provides heading information. 2. The KI 229 ADF RMI (P/N 066-3038-00/01) provides ADF and VOR to the station bearing information. This information is provided by two pointers which are read against the compass card to give magnetic bearing to the station. The "double" pointer is for ADF information only, the single pointer is primarily for VOR information. NOTE: The VOR pointer can select ADF or VOR information by an external switch which grounds pin 35 to receive ADF information. The KI 228 Dual needle ADF indicator (P/N 066-3059-00/01) is a basic indicator which provides ADF to the station bearing information for dual system installations. The -00 version has a manually adjustable compass card, the -01 version has a stepper motor which can be interfaced to a KCS 55 system. 4. The KI 227 ADF (P/N 066-3063-00/01) provides ADF bearing information that is read against the compass card. The -00 has a manually adjustable compass card. The -01 can be interfaced to the KCS 55/55A compass system which allowing the compass card to be driven to show magnetic heading. The 806 system with XYZ indicators requires a 26V, 400Hz inverter with a minimum output of 12VA. 3.

SECTION II INSTALLATION 2.1 GENERAL INFORMATION

This section contains suggestions and factors to consider before installing the KDF 806 ADF system. Close adherence to these suggestions will ensure a more satisfactory level of performance from the system. Read this section carefully before attempting any aspect of the installation. The conditions and test required for the TSO and MOPS approval of this article are minimum performance standards. It is the responsibility of those installing this article either on or with a specified type or class of aircraft to determine that the aircraft installation conditions are within the TSO and MOPS standards. These articles must have separate approval for installation in an aircraft. Any features in this equipment outside the requirements of this applicable TSO and MOPS must be evaluated and approved as part of the installation approval. The article may be installed only if performed under 14 CFR part 43 or the applicable airworthiness requirements.

2.2

UNPACKING AND INSPECTING EQUIPMENT

Exercise extreme care when unpacking the equipment. Make a visual inspection of the unit for evidence of damage incurred during shipment. If a claim for damage is to be made, save the shipping container to substantiate the claim. The claim should be promptly filed with the transportation company. It would be advisable to retain the container and packaging material after all equipment has been removed in the event that equipment storage or reshipment should become necessary.

2.3.1

EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION
COOLING CONSIDERATIONS

The greatest single contributor to increased reliability of all modern day avionics is to limit the maximum operating temperature of the individual units whether panel mounted or remote mounted. While modern day circuit designs consume far less electrical energy, the watts per cubic inch dissipated within the avionics units still remains much the same due to high density packaging techniques utilized. Consequently, the importance of providing avionics cooling is essential to the life span of the unit. While each individual unit may or may not require forced air cooling, the combined heat load of several units operating in a typical avionics location will significantly degrade the reliability of the avionics if provisions for cooling are not incorporated in the initial installation. Failure to provide cooling will certainly lead to increased avionics maintenance costs and may void the warranty.

2.3.2 A. B. C. D.

KDF 806 MECHANICAL INSTALLATION PROCEDURES The ADF antenna should be mounted a minimum distance of 4 feet from the DME antenna and transponder antenna. Aircraft panel mounted equipment should be easily accessible and clearly visible to the pilot. Panel mounted equipment should not be mounted close to heater vents or other high heat sources. Consider adequate clearance for plug and harness. 00511I06.JA Page 2-1

2.3.3

KDF 806 CABLE HARNESS AND CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY

Although the KDF 806 Receiver will work with any DC voltage from 11 to 33 volts, the front panel lighting circuit for the control unit must be wired for either a +5.00 or a +27.5 volt supply. To drive a 3-wire synchro indicator, 26VAC, 400Hz is required. See FIGURE 2-13 KA 44B ANTENNA CABLE INTERCONNECT and FIGURE 2-14 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586, FIGURE 2-15 ADF SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A, FIGURE 2-16 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A (TANDEM), and FIGURE 2-17 KFS 586A REPEATER INTERCONNECT for wiring details. A. The installing facility will supply and fabricate all external cables except the antenna cable (see FIGURE 2-13 KA 44B ANTENNA CABLE INTERCONNECT). The required connectors are supplied as a part of the installation Kit. B. The length and routing of the external cables must be carefully studied and planned before attempting actual installation. Avoid sharp bends or locating the cable near aircraft control cables. C. The KDF 806 and the associated wiring harness must be kept a minimum of three feet from the transponder antenna to prevent RF interference from the antenna. D. Do not route the ADF antenna cable near the transponder antenna coax. Prior to installing the receiver itself, it is wise to make a point-to-point continuity check to verify proper wiring. A check should also be made to ensure that aircraft power is applied only to specified pins. Verify that the antenna and indicator connectors are in place. With the connectors in place, place the KDF 806 into the rack and secure it by turning the hold down locking screw clockwise. Continue turning until the unit is secure in the mounting rack.

2.3.6 KA 44B ANTENNA MECHANICAL INSTALLATION

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

The antenna installation will determine, to a large extent, whether the KDF 806 will give optimum performance. The KA 44B antenna contains both the loop and sense antennas. The following considerations should be taken into account before selecting a location for the antenna:

CAUTION KEEP THE ANTENNA AT LEAST 4 FEET AWAY FROM DME OR TRANSPONDER ANTENNAS TO MINIMIZE L-BAND INTERFERENCE. S/N 8800 AND BELOW BE SURE TO PLUG THE DRAIN HOLES AND THE MOUNTING SCREW HOLES OF THE ANTENNA WITH A GOOD CAULKING COMPOUND OR SEALANT SUCH AS RTV 3116 (P/N 016-010210000), TO AVOID CONTAMINATION BY WATER. S/N 8800 AND ABOVE ARE DESIGNED WITHOUT DRAIN HOLES. THE ANTENNA SHOULD BE MOUNTED WELL CLEAR OF THE AIRCRAFT GENERATOR/ALTERNATOR AND WELL CLEAR OF ANY GENERATOR/ALTERNATOR CABLES. CAUTION DO NOT ROUTE THE CABLES ALONG WITH HIGH LEVEL TRANSMITTING CABLES. DO NOT ROUTE THE CABLES WITH OR NEAR ALTERNATOR OR 400Hz CABLES. MAKE SURE THAT THE CABLES DO NOT INTERFERE WITH ANY OF THE AIRCRAFT CONTROL CABLES.
A. B. C. Mount the antenna on the centerline of the aircraft fuselage. Failure to do so may result in excessive Q.E. error. If the antenna is to be top mounted, select a location where shadowing from the wings, etc., is minimized. The antenna should be well removed from any projections such as the engine(s) and propeller(s), as well as landing gear doors, access doors, or other openings which will break the ground plane for the antenna. Use the template included in the installation kit to mark the mounting holes on the aircraft fuselage. Drill and/or punch the required holes. Use a piece of fine sandpaper or emery cloth to sand the area on the fuselage skin on which the doubler plate is to be mounted. Apply Alumiprep No. 33, P/N 016-01127-0000, to both the inside area of the fuselage and the back of the doubler plate, following the directions on the container to cleanse the metal of any residue.

CABLE HARNESS AND CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY

Refer to FIGURE 2-14 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586, FIGURE 2-15 ADF SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A, FIGURE 2-16 KDF 806 SYSTEM INTERCONNECT WITH KFS 586A (TANDEM), and FIGURE 2-17 KFS 586A REPEATER INTERCONNECT for wiring details. . Consider the following when making up the cable harness: A. The KDF 806 antenna connector is designed to connect all the cables to the antenna, including the triaxial cable (see FIGURE 2-6 BNC CONNECTOR TO TRIAXIAL CABLE). This connector is supplied in the installation kit with the antenna end pre-terminated at the factory in order to facilitate proper installation and minimize installation-related service problems. Connector pinout information is detailed in FIGURE 2-3 KDF 806 CONNECTOR J8061, FIGURE 2-4 KDF 586/586A CONNECTOR J5861, and FIGURE 2-5 KA 44B CONNECTOR J4441. The triaxial cable and signal wires are supplied with the connector, and can be ordered in either 12, 24, 36 or 48 lengths. These wires should be cut to a convenient length for the particular installation and terminated at the receiver connector by the installation personnel. (Their length is not critical.) Refer to the applicable System Interconnect Diagram for the proper receiver pin connections and color code. B. The bare drain wire of the shield that surrounds the four 24AWG wires in the 6 conductor antenna cable must be grounded at the receiver end. It has been left open at the antenna connector end. C. Refer to FIGURE 2-6 BNC CONNECTOR TO TRIAXIAL CABLE for instructions on installing the coaxial connector assembly to the receiver end of the triaxial cable. D. The signal cable and the triaxial cable leading to the antenna should be tiewrapped together to facilitate handling and routing. E. The audio output line should be a twisted, shielded pair, with its shield grounded at the load end. It is designed to drive a 500 ohm load, so it should be wired to the proper input of an audio panel isolation amplifier or a 500 ohm headphone jack. F. Use 22AWG or heavier wire for the DC power to the radio and for the output lines to the optional indicator. G. For a top-mounted antenna, leave pin 7 of the KDF 806 connector open. For a bottom-mounted antenna, ground pin 7. H. After the harness has been fabricated and is ready for installation, secure it to the air frame.

POST INSTALLATION CHECK


KDF 806 SYSTEM

A quick preliminary operational check can be made by turning on the KDF 806 and tuning it to a local AM broadcast station or strong NDB station. Check for satisfactory audio (this should be done where clear reception is possible, preferably outside of a hanger). NOTE: THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN ADJUSTED TO COMPENSATE FOR THE AVERAGE AMOUNT (6 ) OF QUADRANTAL ERROR (Q.E.) THAT EXISTS DUE TO THE AIRFRAME. IF ADDITIONAL Q.E. ADJUSTMENT IS REQUIRED FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE OUTLINED BELOW. A. Tune in a nearby broadcast station, NDB station, or compass locator that gives a strong, clear signal, free of fading. Position the aircraft on the ramp in an area that is clear of surrounding buildings, such that the indicator points to 0 (i.e., the aircraft is heading directly toward the station.) Note the aircraft heading. Turn the aircraft to the left 45 . Note the indicated relative bearing and the amount of error. Continue to turn the aircraft, stopping at every 45 and note the relative bearing error. Average the absolute errors at the 45 , 135 , 225 and 315 point, this is the amount of Q.E. to compensate for. Pin 40 of the unit connector determines the direction for correcting Q.E (see FIGURE 2-1 Q.E. COMPENSATION ADJUSTMENT). Pins 36 thru 39 are programmed to give a set amount of Q.E. adjustment. The following table shows error in degrees and the proper combination of adjustment outputs to connect to pin 41 (Q.E. ground).

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A Whenever one or both control heads are removed from a tandem installation, or for newly installed control heads, the unit with the desired channel frequencies should be sequenced through each channel while in Program mode after reinstallation. Each channel should be displayed long enough so that the other control head will display the channel as well (approximately .5 seconds). This will ensure that both control heads have the same channel frequencies stored in their non-volatile memory. NOTE: IF NO ACTION IS TAKEN FOR 20 SECONDS WHILE IN PROGRAM MODE, THE UNITS WILL RETURN TO THEIR PREVIOUS MODE.

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

SECTION III OPERATION 3.1 OPERATING PROCEDURE

It is recommended that the KDF 806 unit be turned off when the aircraft engine is started in order to prevent possible voltage transient damage to the radio. The unit is turned off by placing the function switch in the OFF position. The KFS 586A turns the unit off by rotating the ON/Off/VOL knob fully counterclockwise. The volume control adjusts the audio output for a comfortable listening level. NOTE: IN THE ADF MODE, THE AUDIO MUTING FEATURE OF THE KDF 806 CAUSES THE AUDIO OUTPUT TO BE MUTED UNLESS THE RECEIVER IS LOCKED ONTO A VALID STATION. THIS REDUCES INTERSTATION NOISE AND AIDS THE PILOT IN IDENTIFYING NAVIGABLE STATIONS. 3.1.1 KFS 586 OPERATION

The KDF 806 Automatic Direction Finder has two operational modes. With the mode switch in the ADF position, the unit is placed into the ADF mode and the loop antenna is enabled. The indicator needle will point to the relative bearing of the selected station. To tell if there is a sufficient signal for navigational purposes, the pilot can place the KDF 806 back into the ANT mode, parking the indicator needle at 90 . When the unit is then switched to the ADF mode, the needle should slew to the station bearing in a positive manner, without excessive sluggishness, wavering, or reversals. In the ANT mode, the loop antenna is disabled and the unit acts as a receiver, allowing audio reception through the speaker or headphones. The indicator needle remains parked at the 90 relative position. This mode provides slightly clearer audio reception, and is used for station identification. In various parts of the world, some stations use an interrupted carrier for identification purposes. A Beat Frequency Oscillator (BFO) function is provided to permit these stations to be more easily identified. Placing the function switch in either of the BFO positions causes a 1000Hz tone to be heard whenever there is a radio carrier signal present at the selected frequency. 3.1.2 FREQUENCY CONTROL Standby Entry The Standby frequency is read on the bottom of the display. It may be tuned by turning the frequency selector control. Standby frequency tuning does not affect the Active frequency. Depressing the Transfer button causes the Standby frequency to appear in the Active, or upper frequency location. To tune Standby frequency: 1. Tune frequency of station desired. 2. Push Transfer button This method permits the pilot to tune to the desired frequency without the accompanying noise of tuning through other stations.

Page 3-1

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

Active Entry The Active frequency is read on the top of the display. Holding the transfer button depressed for approximately 2 seconds causes the Standby frequency display to go out. The Active frequency may now be controlled directly by the frequency selector control. In this tuning mode, the station audio is present, permitting the operator to hunt for a station by listening to the audio while tuning. The large outer knob of the frequency selector control selects the 100s KHz from 1 to 17, with roll over from 17 to 1, and roll under from 1 to 17. The small inner knob selects 10s KHz when pushed in and 1s KHz when pulled out. The 10s KHz and 1s KHz rolls over from 9 to 0 and rolls under from 0 to 9. Display Flash Any time the frequency displayed is below 190, the display flashes. X Character The small X to the right of the top frequency turns off in the ADF and ADF/BFO modes only when the ADF is pointing.

3.1.3 KFS 586A OPERATION

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

The operating modes of the KDF 806 are controlled by depressing the Mode button of the KFS 586A. A description of the ADF receiver modes is found in 3.1.1 KFS 586 OPERATION. 3.1.3.1 Frequency Mode Standby Entry Two frequencies are displayed; one in the Active display and the other in the Standby display. Select desired frequency in Standby display by rotating the increment/ decrement knobs either clockwise or counterclockwise. The larger knob will change the 100KHz portion of the Standby (SBY) display. When changing the frequency past either end of specified frequency range the display will roll over to the other end of the frequency range. The small knob will change KHz portion of the Standby display. It steps in increments of 10KHz when the knob is pushed in and 1KHz when the knob is pulled out.

To tune the ADF receiver to the desired frequency, the desired frequency must first be entered into the Standby display, and then the Transfer button must be pushed for less than 2 seconds. This will trade the frequency of the Active/Chan and Standby display. While in Frequency Mode, the ADF Receiver is always tuned to the frequency in the Active display. Active Entry The Active Entry mode is entered by pushing the Transfer button for longer than 2 seconds. The increment/decrement knobs operate as in Standby Entry, but as the Active/Chan display changes so does the tuned frequency of the radio. Momentarily pushing the Transfer button returns the control head to Standby Entry. The Standby frequency prior to Active Entry mode remains unchanged. 3.1.4 3.1.4.1 CIVIL OPERATION Channel Mode

Momentarily pressing the CHAN button while in one of the Frequency modes temporarily puts the unit in Channel mode. The unit remains tuned to the last Active frequency displayed before entering Channel mode. The last used channel number is displayed in the Active/Chan window and the associated frequency in the Standby display (unless no channels have been programmed, in which case the unit defaults to channel 1 and dashes are displayed in the SBY display). Turning either Increment/Decrement knob will change the channel number and its corresponding frequency. The channels will only increment and decrement to channels that have been programmed. Pressing the CHAN button will return the unit to Frequency mode and the status of Frequency mode prior to entering Channel mode remains the same. If there has been no activity for 5 seconds the unit will return to Frequency mode and the channel frequency remains in the Standby display.

Rev. 6, Nov/2005

00511I06.JA

Page 3-3

KDF 806 / KFS 586/586A

If in Channel mode, pressing the Transfer button will return the unit to Frequency mode. The Channel frequency will become the new Active frequency and the last Active frequency will become the new Standby frequency. If the unit was in Active Entry mode prior to entering Channel mode, pressing Transfer button or allowing the unit to time out will bring it back to Standby Entry. The On/Off/Volume and Mode control operate as in Frequency Mode. 3.1.4.2 Program Mode

Program mode is selected by pressing and holding the CHAN button for longer then 2 seconds. The unit remains tuned to the last Active frequency displayed before entering Program mode and the last used channel number is displayed when Program mode is entered. The channel number flashes. Either Increment/Decrement knob changes the channel number. Any channel, 1 thru 9, may be programmed. When the channel number is flashing, pressing the Transfer button will cause the channel number to stop flashing and cause the frequency to flash. The Increment/Decrement knobs then work as in Frequency mode. When frequency is flashing, pressing the Transfer button will cause the frequency to stop flashing and the channel number to flash. An unprogrammed channel displays dashes. In frequency rollover or rollunder, dashes will be displayed before rolling to the highest or lowest frequency respectively. Leaving the dashes in the display unprograms the channel when leaving Program mode. If no knob activity has occurred for 20 seconds the unit returns to Frequency mode. The unit can also be returned to Frequency mode from Program mode by pressing the CHAN button. Returning to Frequency mode will not change the Active or Standby frequency from what it was prior to entering Program mode. The On/Off/Volume and Mode controls operate as in Frequency mode. 3.1.4.3 Default Mode

Turning the unit on while holding the Transfer button down will bring the unit on in Active Entry and load 800KHz as the Active frequency. 3.1.5 3.1.5.1 MILITARY OPERATION Channel Mode

Momentarily pressing the CHAN button while in Frequency mode puts the unit in Channel mode. The last channel used is the channel number displayed. The unit tunes the ADF receiver to the frequency in the Standby display provided that it is a valid frequency. Otherwise it will tune the KDF 806 to the last Active frequency. If no channels are programmed the unit will display for 3 seconds; "CH 1" and dashes in the Standby window. Turning either Increment/ Decrement knob changes the channel number and corresponding channel frequency. The unit will only channel to channel numbers with a valid frequency programmed. If the frequency is below 190Khz, the ADF receiver does not operate and the frequency flashes. Holding Transfer Button for 2 seconds selects Active Entry. NOTE: CHANNEL MODE DOES NOT TIME OUT AS IN CIVIL OPERATION.

Momentarily pressing the CHAN button will return the unit to frequency mode and the status remains what it was prior to entering Channel mode. The KDF 806 will be tuned to the frequency in the Active display. The On/Off/Volume and Mode controls operate as in Frequency mode. 3.1.5.2 Program Mode

Pressing and holding the CHAN button for longer than 2 seconds brings the unit into Program mode. The last used channel number is displayed and flashes. The ADF receiver remains tuned to the last Active frequency. When the channel number is flashing, the Increment/ Decrement knobs change the channel number. An unprogrammed channel displays dashes in the Standby window, in which case the receiver tunes the last valid Active frequency. Pressing the Transfer button causes the channel number to stop flashing and the frequency to flash. The Increment/Decrement knobs then operate as in Frequency mode. Pressing the Transfer button again causes the Channel number to flash and the frequency to stop flashing. In frequency rollover or rollunder dashes will be displayed before rolling to the lowest or highest frequency respectively. Leaving the dashes in the display unprograms the channel when leaving Program mode. The unit returns to the mode and frequency which were in use prior to entering Program mode by momentarily pressing the CHAN button or if no activity has occurred for 20 seconds. The ADF receiver will be tuned to the frequency in the Active/Chan display if the prior mode was Frequency mode or the frequency in the Standby window if the prior mode was Channel mode. The On/Off/Volume and Mode controls operate as in Frequency mode. 3.1.5.3 Default Mode

Turning the unit on while holding the Transfer button down will bring the unit on in Active Entry and load 800KHz as the Active frequency. 3.1.6 X CHARACTER

The small x to the left of the Active/Chan display turns off in the ADF and ADF/BFO modes only when the ADF is pointing.
