The FDCTRL-1 cockpit controller is designed to interface with the FDCGA-2 via an Arinc 232 data bus to adjust contrast and brightness on the video output of the FDCVGA-2 (sold separately). The FDCVGA-2 converts two inputs from a composite thermal camera and provides two VGA outputs to display EVS video on cockpit Multi-Function displays such as the Universal MFD640. The FDCTRL-1 allows pilots to adjust contrast and brightness on Multi-Function displays that do not have brightness and contrasts adjustment features.
- Six control buttons
- Interfaces with the FDCVGA-2
- Allows info to be manually entered into FD200CPU when FMS/GPS is unable to output data
