Honeywell Introduces Personal-Size Color Touchscreen for Business Jet Cabin Control
Honeywell introduced the Ovation Select 200C personal control unit (PCU), a 4.3” TFT color LCD touchscreen control device, specifically designed as a replacement for the Ovation C-Series MHL4 VIP personal control unit.
The Select 200C provides passengers with high-resolution, full-color, icon-based touchscreen, and provides an extremely intuitive graphical user interface with “slide and select” control features for any device or system — with no more than a three-menu pull-down.
The new PCU enables operators to implement the next generation user interface technology and easily integrate this into their existing C-Series installation, said Rob Wilson, Honeywell President of Business Aviation. It looks great, is easy to use and drops right in as a replacement for your existing PCU with pin-for-pin compatibility.
The icon-based touchscreen simplifies the user experience by reducing menu levels to provide cabin passengers and crew with the ability to control the functionality of each of the Cabin Management System components such as DVD player, Moving Map Systems, Lighting, Water System, Shades, Temperature, etc. The LCD provides optics that offer excellent brightness, contrast and viewing angles.
With an install-base of nearly 1000 legacy MHL4 PCUs, the new 200C has widespread applicability across the following platforms:
- Challenger 601/604
- Falcon 7X
- Falcon 50/50EX
- Falcon 900B/900C/900EX
- Falcon 2000/2000EX/2000DX
- Global Express
- Gulfstream II/III/IV
- Legacy 600
