The Honeywell DU-875 / 885 displays are liquid crystal displays (LCD) that replace old cathode ray tubes (CRT) displays for Primus 1000 / 2000 / 2000XP, SPZ-8400 /8500 and selected SPZ-8000 series avionics systems.
These display upgrades replace obsolete CRTs with modern LCDs. The DU-875 display units are specifically designed with “plug and play” functionality for ease of replacing the old DU-870 CRTs. They are brighter, last longer and provide growth capability in the cockpit for electronic charts, advanced map, camera video, maintenance pages and optional XM® Weather information.
Benefits of Upgrading:
- Updates cockpit to latest technology – can be done in less than a day – no downtime
- Removes obsolescence issue facing CRTs
- Lowers cost of operation - increases reliability by 2X and lowers weight by seven pounds per display unit
- Brings brighter, clearer, high resolution picture to the pilots
- Operators can replace display units one at a time upon failure or all displays at once
- Positions aircraft to later add operational features as part of Primus Elite upgrade
Brad Keselowski, Two-time NASCAR Champion
Why NASCAR Champion Brad Keselowski Chose to Upgrade with Honeywell DU-875 LCD Displays
“I chose to upgrade to new DU-875 displays because of the financial and operational benefits.
My Lear 45 is essential to my business of racing. I have a tight travel window each week and the plane allows me to get quickly home for family time following the race, to travel to sponsor commitments, and most importantly - arrive at the track on time each week.
Joey Meier, my chief pilot and race spotter, loves the improved clarity of the displays. I appreciate this too, I don't want his eyes tired when he's spotting for me while I'm on the track! The four displays were amazingly easy to install since each is a form/fit drop-in. And each display weighs much less which reduces our fuel burn, saving me thousands of dollars per year.”
