he Shadin Avionics F/ADC-2000 Fuel/Airdata Computer gives you access to more real-time flight information than ever before.
Advanced technology has created an aircraft systems\\\' link to your long range NAV with advanced capabilities at an affordable price. The highly-compatible Shadin Avionics F/ADC-2000 will interface with nearly every major GPS and Flight Management System, and automatically calculates real-time fuel, airdata, and navigation information which is displayed through your on-board NAV system, EFIS, and TAWS.
he F/ADC-2000 unit links aircraft systems and your GPS receiver, automatically calculating fuel used, TAS, true air temperature, OAT, barometric pressure correction, density altitude and wind aloft without manual data entry. This information is totally dynamic in that it is based on real-time wind aloft and fuel flow.
The F/ADC-2000 provides high resolution altitude management in ten-foot increments to 35,000 feet to drive the vertical NAV feature of new generation GPS receivers for approaches.
In addition, F/ADC-2000 pressure altitude data is automatically used by most GPS manufacturers to substitute for the fourth satellite if it is not in range to compute three-dimensional post ion. This provides 24-hour, 3D position accuracy with only three satellites, without manual entry of altitude.
Designed to interface with the latest GPS systems on the market, the ADC-200 delivers real-time fuel management information, winds aloft, and airdata information to instantly alert the pilot to changing flight conditions. The ADC-200 is remote-mounted, and requires no valuable panel space since all calculated functions are viewed directly on the GPS!
RS232/422 output fed to the GPS receiver automatically generates the following information to appear on the GPS fuel and wind pages: - Individual engine fuel flow (GPS calculates fuel remaining/used, fuel to destination, left/right engine used) - TAS, winds aloft, wind component - Mach, Indicated Air Speed, Instantaneous Vertical Speed, True Air Temperature, Rate of Turn, Outside Air Temperature, Pressure Altitude, Density Altitude, Magnetic Heading.
Calculated pressure altitude fed from the ADC-200 to the GPS substitutes as 4th satellite navigation information, saving expense of wiring the existing encoder to the GPS.
For jet operators, pitot/static source error correction curves were added to ensure accurate pressure altitude and indicated airspeed readouts. A bootstrap HSI must be installed for heading information.
