Product description

CDMS-3000 is ScioTeq’s latest generation multi-function control and display unit (MCDU) design, built for flight and mission control, providing an alpha-numeric keyboard and AMLCD panel with VGA resolution (4”x3” or 3”x5”). 
The (E)TSO certified design is the successor of the widely used 1st and 2nd generation MCDU of ScioTeq and comes as a complete product family, including the civil CDMS-3739 (ARINC 739A), the military-oriented CDMS-3153 (combo ARINC 429 and MIL-STD-1553), and the versatile CDMS-370x, offered as a Modular and Open MOSArt® platform.

The unique MOSArt® framework allows customers to develop and integrate multiple applications with mixed criticality themselves on the Open CDMS-370x platform.

With several keyboard configurations (three sizes, grey or black bezel color, green or white backlight color, several button legend options), two LCD sizes, three different heights and configurable external I/O (6 variants available), the MCDU family provides a solution for any control display need.
