What is the DU-875 LCD Display Unit Upgrade?

What is the DU-875 LCD Display Unit Upgrade?

The aviation industry is moving away from large, energy draining cathode ray tubes (CRT) to modern, lightweight and more reliable liquid crystal display (LCD) panels. Over the years, as the industry has advanced into the business it is today, LCD retrofitting continues to hold a high demand in today’s market.

The Honeywell DU-875 display units are LCDs that replace old CRT displays for:

  • Primus 1000/ 2000 / 2000XP.
  • SPZ-8400 / 8500 and selected SPZ-8000 series avionics systems.


Honeywell provides operators with multiple upgrade paths and solutions to choose from including: DU-875 One-for-One Replacement, Primus Elite Enhanced Features, and Primus Elite Advanced Features, as well as upgrade options for Gulfstream GIV, GIV-SP, and GV (SPZ-8000) operators.

Drop-In Replacement DU-870 to DU-875

With the DU-875 display, upgrading is easy because they are designed to be a “plug and play”. The One-for-One-Replacement upgrade provides operators with the option to replace one or several display panels, all depending on your requirements and budget. Operators can experience many benefits from upgrading to the DU-875, such as seeing lower operational costs, faster installation with no new wiring needed, and a OEM one-year warranty.

Primus Elite Enhanced Features (PEEF)

The upgrade to a full Primus Elite flight deck delivers new display features and a user-friendly interface to the Primus 1000 / 2000 avionics systems. If you are looking for a cursor control interface, advanced data loading with wireless options, optional XM graphical weather overlays, and improved situational awareness, you’ll want to upgrade to our Primus Elite Enhanced Features package.

Primus Elite Advanced Features (PEAF)

In addition, we also offer Primus Elite Advanced Features, a software upgrade to the Primus Elite display system, which provides three additional display features to Primus Epic: Synthetic Vision System (SVS), TCAS Overlay on Enhanced Moving Map Display, and METAR (Aviation Routine Weather Reports).

Years ago, pilots were given wire-frame renditions of images such as highways and buildings. Today, pilots can invest in displays that offer 3D color images of runways, terrain, and obstacles, giving pilots a clear view of the virtual flight path ahead. Synthetic vision gives pilots an accurate idea of their surroundings which increases their safety during flights.

When it comes to safety, using the highest standard of technology is of the utmost importance. When flying, you want to have a reliable display that won’t fail or cause glare when in high altitude conditions. The DU-875 is covered with a flexible surface that is substantially less prone to specular glare compared to a glass-covered CRT screen.
