The Engine Instrument & Crew Alert System (EICAS) family of displays provide a mature, integrated display system for accurate propulsion system information and caution advisory awareness for virtually any airborne application.  These displays are available in 5" x 4" and 6" x 8" configurations.
The Engine Instrument System Display is VGA quality, low power, sun-light readable, NVG compatible with exceptional reliability. Modular, solid state construction makes it readily adaptable to a wide range of I/O. Large non-volatile memory storage capacity with easy direct downloading simplifies the transfer of engine performance information to the maintenance records. A separate serial test port can be used to easily amend scales, parameters or other features on the display to meet changed requirements. When two displays are installed, a cross-talk channel provides complete redundancy.
