What do single updates and annual subscriptions cost? Customers should contact Jeppesen for current pricing. Can Aspen data be bundled with other databases W, for example for price discount? A single Jeppesen data subscription for the Aspen Evolution system can be used to update up to three installed Aspen displays.

You can scale the panel as a whole to make it fit in your instrument panel, usually replacing the attitude indicator and gyro compass or HSI. The instruments in the panel were made in twice the size, assuring the image quality stays to an optimum. Primary Flight Display The primary flight display consists of four parts: airspeed, attitude, altitude and data bar.

Airspeed The airspeed becomes visible at 20 knots up to a maximum of knots. The airspeed tape has 4 different color markings, which can be set manually if you select the EFD PFD in the panels list. The following settings can be made: White lower: Vso, stall Speed with landing configuration, that is flaps out and landing gear down. This is the speed in which you can fly with flaps extended.

Yellow lower: This is the Vno upper limit, this where the part between Vno and Vne begins. Normally it is only allowed to fly in this part when being in smooth air. The indicated airspeed turns red when exceeding Vne. On top of the airspeed tape is the IAS indicator value. The IAS is for pilot reference only, and can be used to help you keeping your desired speed.

Slip indicator: Indicates side slip, one rectangle indicating the equivalent of a full ball deflection. Flight director: Magenta colored flight director. CDI: Green triangle indicating course deflection in dots, turns hollow when deflection is greater than 2 dots. Becomes visible when there is a valid signal. GSI: Green triangle indicating glide slope deflection in dots, turns hollow when deflection is greater than 2 dots. Minimums setting and warning: Shows the minimums altitude set and a minimums warning when descending below set minimums altitude.

Minimums altitude can be set between 0 and The battery lasts for approximately 30 minutes, after this the device will turn off. Set your aircraft default bus voltage in the user properties, either 14 or 28 volt. Altitude Minimums and trend vector The altitude tape shows the altitude from feet up till Descending below set minimums altitude triggers a one second tone.

Altitude bug: Indicates the altitude set on the autopilot. A tone sounds and the alerter settings window turns yellow feet before reaching the set altitude, the yellow warning extinguishes after 15 seconds. The alerter becomes active when deviating more than feet from your set altitude. Trend vector: This is the magenta bar along the altitude tape, showing the expected altitude within the next 6 seconds.

The window on top of the altitude tape shows your altitude alerter setting. Data bar TAS: True airspeed in knots, visible above 20 knots. GS: GPS ground speed in knots. Can be set in the PFD user properties. Wind speed and angle: The speed and angle of the wind on the aircraft. Becomes visible when the wind speed is higher than 10 knots and the aircraft is in the air.

This displays the available data from either Nav1 or GPS1. For Nav1 either the frequency or if available the name of the source is displayed.

Below this, if there is a valid signal, the bearing, and if there is a DME signal as well there is the DME distance to the station and below that the time in minutes to reach the station. Below this there is a rate of turn indicator, with a range of 0 to 6 degrees per second. The inner white tick represents a half standard rate turn, the outer white tick represents a standard rate turn.

When exceeding 6 degrees per second a white triangle is displayed. Navigation display Either in or ARC mode. Press the button on the right side of or ARC to switch between the two.

The green arrow represents the OBS course setting, and will show a deviation bar when there is a valid signal. The deviation bar turns hollow when the deviation becomes more than 2 dots.

The aircraft in the center can be either a fixed wing or helicopter, this can be set as a user property when selecting the ND in the panels tab.

Along the compass runs a bug indicating the autopilot heading, and a blue diamond indicating the GPS ground track. In mode the vertical speed is displayed on a graph bar as well. Empty label, will be implemented in a later version. Min: Turn on and off Minimums alerter. GPSS: Not available. Source bar The 5 source bar labels The bottom source bar shows 5 different labels from left to right. We will number then 1 to 5 explaining all their different features.

The option will stay highlighted magenta for 10 seconds, indicating it is active. CRS: Either cyan or magenta colored. The course value above the HSI will also turn magenta to indicate it is active. Turning the dial will move the IAS bug along the airspeed tape.

Pressing the left source button will let you cycle through the RMI sources, the single line bearing pointer will show up, pointing in the direction of your selected source.

When cycled passed all sources the bearing pointer will hide. For now this is Nav1 and GPS1. A red slash through the source indicates there is no valid signal from the source.

Pressing the right source button will let you cycle through the RMI sources, the double line bearing pointer will show up, pointing in the direction of your selected source. HDG: Either cyan or magenta colored. When colored cyan the HDG mode is inactive, when pressing the dial-button or rotating the dial the HDG label turns magenta, as well as the heading value and the heading bug along the compass.

Rotating this heading sets the heading for the autopilot or gives you an indication when the autopilot is turned off. The label turns magenta, as well as the text above the altitude tape and the bug along the altitude tape. The label turns magenta, as well as the barometric pressure value in the data bar. As a shortcut to this setting you can also press the corresponding hotkey.

The label turns magenta, as well as the text in the minimums window. A shortcut to this setting is pressing the corresponding hotkey, this is also the way to turn the minimums warning on and off. Buttons and dials PWR: No function at this moment. RNG: No function at this moment. MENU: No function at this moment. Pressing and holding the dial-button for more than 2 seconds synchronizes the selected function with the current value. Pressing and holding the dial-button for more than two seconds synchronizes the selected function with the current value.

Troubleshooting The screen is dimmed and a battery warning shows up This means that the bus voltage is below the minimum voltage for the instrument. You can set your bus voltage by clicking on the PFD instrument in the panels tab. You can choose between 14 and 28 volt. This will also show up when the aircraft is cold-and-dark. Turn on the pitot heat, and get out of the icing conditions if possible. Hardware The following downloads are. Generic This script can be used to run the bezel button and dial functions with hardware instead of the software bezel.

Leave out the software bezel and use this script to control all the functions. This hardware script has all the pins pre-configured. All you have to do is select the channel of your Arduino Nano and set the device number if you have more than EFD
