GI106B Course Deviation Indicator
We are excited to announce the GI-106B, a redesigned version of the popular GI102A and GI106A Course Deviation Indicators. The GI-106B provides customers with features that are instantly familiar, but with several internal and external improvements.
Replacing the existing GI102A and GI106A, the GI106B incorporates an enhanced design and new functionality. The Indicator needles are now stored out of the Pilot’s view when not in use and when invalid; replacing the glideslope and NAV invalid flags. Additionally, incandescent GPS/NAV/VLOC mode annunciators and the “TO/FROM” flag have been exchanged for LED annunciators.
With the removal of complex internal electromechanical subassemblies and incandescent bulbs, the new GI106B provides improved reliability.
Existing users wishing to replace legacy GI102A and GI106A installations can upgrade without the need for changes to the pinout or the connection to existing GPS/NAV units.
Customers who would have purchased a GI102A will now purchase one common part number along with GI106A customers, as the GI106B stores the glideslope needle out of view if the glideslope signals are not connected.
