TRIDEN Specifications

Basic 2-Axis Trim Prompt

Panel Space 3 ATI
Weight 8.3 lbs.
Power 1.5 amps nominal @ 14 or 28 VDC
The roll axis channel features continuous roll/nav/voltage monitors, heading hold, heading select, NAV (VOR/RNAV) /LOC/BC, anticipative intercept and track, automatic soft track, auto 45-degree intercept, and all angle intercept with HSI.

Pitch channel features altitude hold, attitude command, electronic altitude hold, vertical speed hold, G/S capture and track, proportional pitch trim prompting, control wheel steering, continuous pitch/GS monitors, and automatic pitch synchronization.


Automatic Pitch Trim Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 2.7 lbs.
Power 1.1 amps nominal @ 14 or 28 VDC

The autotrim expansion adds automatic electrical pitch trim during autopilot operation and yoke mounted command electric pitch trim.


Flight Director Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 0.4 lbs.
Power 0.3 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC
Flight Director
The flight director expansion computes the necessary roll and pitch attitudes needed to intercept and maintain headings, courses, attitudes, and altitudes. These computations are then displayed through the flight director horizon as steering commands, greatly simplifying instrument flight.

Yaw Damper Expansion

Panel Space No additional required.
Weight 2.8 lbs.
Power 1.9 amps @ 14 or 28 VDC

Yaw Damper
The Yaw Damper is a subsystem which enhances directional stability by reducing short-term oscillations in the yaw axis, therefore enhancing passenger comfort. In addition, it maintains coordinated flight during turns. The yaw damper is activated with autopilot engagement but may be operated independently. This expansion may be added to any package.
