LCD Plug-and-Play Solution

Legacy ED-800 CRT Displays ATR42/ 72, Dash 8 and others

Key Benefits
  • Form, fit, and function replacement for legacy ED-800 CRT displays
  • Fully interchangeable with legacy displays
  • True plug-and-play with existing CRT units
    • Instant conversion – install on overnights or at gate
    • No changes to cockpit panels or wiring
    • No flight crew or maintenance retraining
  • Captures LCD technology benefits – higher MTBF at a lower cost of ownership over CRT displays
  • Advanced THOMAS ADA 2.0™ Adaptive Display Architecture adds functionality and capacity to support emerging requirements
  • Eliminates threat of CRT obsolescence

Practical Innovation

L3’s EFI-650 Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) display upgrade provides a plug-and-play replacement for the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays installed on a large number of business and regional aircraft. The EFI-650 uses the latest-generation Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display (AMLCD) technology and solid-state LED backlighting to eliminate the maintenance cost and obsolescence concerns associated with legacy CRTs.

The EFI-650 displays provide higher reliability, reduced weight and lower life-cycle cost.
