The Next Generation
The iEFIS is a comprehensive flight, engine and navigation instrument designed for Experimental and Light Sport aircraft. It is the next generation EFIS system utilizing a custom developed, capacitive, sunlight readable touchscreen. iEFIS combines the undeniable advantages of simplified operation that a touchscreen can offer with rich traditional controls that are equally indispensable in the cockpit environment. A simple but highly effective solution…
As an EFIS hardware platform, the iEFIS breaks the tasks it conducts down into separate modular multi-processor units that all communicate on a reliable CAN bus network (similar to the automotive industry). This results in a robust system in which each device on the network has very specific tasks to handle. This is coupled with intense low power design methods to further maximize overall system application and reliability.
The large amount of flexibility built into the base system allows the adaptation of the iEFIS to almost any mission and aircraft. The iEFIS screens can be completely edited by the user using a simple PC program to create any display the user desires. This makes the system absolutely the most customizable EFIS on the market today! Due to low system cost, the iEFIS is equally suited to light aircraft, gliders and rotorcraft, while providing enough flexibility to be utilized by multi-engine aircraft with up to 4 engines monitored, and by turbine aircraft and even spacecraft.
The principal guidance during the iEFIS development was “complete, one stop, any function, any aircraft”.
