Product description

Optical performance
The RDU-3068’s proprietary AMLCD and LED backlight technology deliver a visual performance second to none: true 8-bit color depth with high contrast ratio and superior color stability, cross-cockpit viewing angles and superior brightness in Day, Night and NVIS modes.

The optical quality is guaranteed over the complete operating temperature range and lifetime of the display, thanks to ScioTeq’s proprietary control mechanisms. As an option, the light can be collimated to reduce reflections on the windshield or canopy.

The software and firmware of the RDU-3068 are developed according to DO-178C and DO-254 respectively, up to and including Design Assurance Level (DAL) A. This display is therefore an ideal candidate for Part 23, Part 25, Part 27 and Part 29 electronic flight instrument systems.
