Duluth, Ga., USA – 30 October 2012 - Avionics display specialist Barco announced today it has exceeded original production estimates to produce more than 1,800 KDU flight displays to meet Honeywell’s demand for displays integrated into its Primus Apex™ flight deck targeted to the business aviation industry.
Barco is providing its 10-inch ‘KDU-1080’ model, a dedicated display solution specifically designed for integration into the Honeywell Primus Apex™ flight deck. These displays are installed aboard the Pilatus PC-12, the Harbin Y12, and Viking Twin Otter aircraft.
The Primus Apex deck features four displays which equip the platforms with enhanced functionality, including keypad data entry and cursor control device graphical interface technology. The display’s large screen surface and high-resolution enable larger views and improved situational awareness in the cockpit, providing pilots with sunlight-readable images and a wide viewing angle to enable optimum cross-cockpit legibility under all lighting conditions.
“Achieving this major milestone on behalf of Honeywell demonstrates our ability to produce best-in-class, dedicated displays for the world’s most reputable aircraft manufacturers, while it reflects our commitment to the advancement of the avionics industry,” commented Tim Cantrell, VP Sales Aerospace Barco North America.
Barco will showcase its 10-inch displays at the 2012 NBAA 65th Annual Meeting & Convention from October 30 – November 1 in Orlando, FL, in Booth #2808.
