EIS CONTROLS AND INDICATIONS INTRODUCTION
GENERAL
The EIS (Electronic Instrument System) is an avionics system connected with
most of the aircraft system computers to perform the EFIS (Electronic Flight
Instrument System) and ECAM (Electronic Centralized Aircraft Monitoring)
functions.
The EIS consists of 6 identical and interchangeable LCD units. The EFIS part
comprises a PFD (Primary Flight Display) and a ND (Navigation Display) per
pilot. The ECAM part comprises an EWD (Engine and Warning Display) and an
SD (System Display).
Three control panels are provided for EFIS and ECAM.

DESCRIPTION
The EIS comprises seven main computers allowing a great redundancy
between systems to minimize the loss of information:
S three identical DMCs (Display Management Computers),
S two identical FWCs (Flight Warning Computers),
S two identical SDACs (System Data Acquisition Concentrators).
DMCs 1, 2 and 3 are divided in two independent parts, the EFIS and ECAM
parts.
Each of them decode and process data coming from the aircraft system
computers.
The two SDACs perform three main functions, such as, data acquisition from
the A/C systems, data concentration and digitization to be sent to the DMCs
ECAM part.
The Aircraft system malfunction data, wellknown as caution situations, are
received and digitized by the SDACs and sent to the FWCs.
The two FWCs perform three main functions, such as, data acquisition from
some main A/C systems as well as SDACs, data warning computation
corresponding to warning situations and flight phase computation. Then the
digitized output is sent to the DMCs ECAM part.
The FWCs also generate attention getters composed of, Master Warning,
Master Caution, and Auto Land lights as well as Audio signals (sounds) and
Auto Call outs (synthetic voices) broadcast by two loudspeakers. There is no
volume control for these audio signals.
The EIS reconfiguration function is achieved by a set of switching devices and
some software implements within the DMCs. The switching or reconfiguration
of the DMCs and DUs can be automatic or manual.

EIS SWITCHING PANELS DESCRIPTION
GENERAL
PFDs and NDs are presented in front of each pilot. The PFD presents short
term information necessary for the flight. The ND presents medium term flight
information required for navigation.
DMC 1 EFIS part is dedicated to the Captains PFD and ND, whilst DMC 2
EFIS part is dedicated to the F/Os PFD and ND, the DMC 3 EFIS part being in
standby.
The EFIS control panels allow the Captain and F/O to control their
corresponding PFD/ND, through the DMCs.
PFD CONTROL
The PFD Control panel enables the display of the Loc and Glide scales and
deviation symbols thanks to the LS pushbutton.
The FD pushbutton enables the display of the Flight Director bars.
The Baro reference selector knob, consists of an outer knob for the selection of
the measurement unit, hPa (hecto Pascal) or in Hg (Inches of Mercury). An
inner knob allows the selection of reference value by rotation, the selection of
the standard value (1013 hPa) by pulling, and to display the QNH by pushing.
The Baro reference window allows the display of the pressure reference value
and the reference used.

Two ADF/VOR selectors per control panel enable ADF or VOR bearing
pointers to be selected on the associated ND as well as the corresponding
navigation station characteristics in any mode, except PLAN mode.
EFIS SWITCHING
The EFIS switching panel located either side of the glareshield, enables:
S the switching from a failed Captain or F/O EFIS DMC to a valid one (DMC 3
first), thanks to the EFIS DMC selector,
S the switching from PFD to ND and viceversa with PFD/ND pushbutton.
The PFD OFF/BRT potentiometer controls the brightness in conjunction with
the automatic brightness control system, and is used to switch the display unit
on or off.
The ND OFF/BRT inner potentiometer controls the brightness and is used to
switch the display unit on or off. The outer potentiometer only adjusts the
brightness of the weather radar image.
NOTE:

In the OFF position, automatic and manual reconfigurations are


possible.

ND CONTROL
Five pushbuttons enable additional data to be displayed on the ND.
When pressed these pushbuttons respectively display:
S airports,
S ADF stations,
S VOR/DME stations,
S waypoints,
S and Constraints.
A mode rotary selector enables the desired presentation of navigation
information to be selected on the associated ND.
A scale rotary selector enables a value in miles to be selected for the rose
NAV, ARC and PLAN modes.

DISPLAY UNIT COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
The LCDU725 (Liquid Crystal Display Unit) is a color display using a 6,25 x
6,25 inches AMLCD (Activ Matrix Liquid Crystal Display) with a 756 x 756 pixel
resolution.
The LCDU725 is a smart display i.e. it has embedded capabilities in order to
compute and to generate the symbols to be displayed from data sent by the
DMC, according to the selections given by its associated control panels.
In addition, the DU receives Wheather Radar or compressed bitmaps images,
via ARINC453 and displays them mixed with the symbology. As some options,
the DU is also able to implement the following capabilities:
S Video input processing and display function
S Printer output interface
The LCDU725 exchanges information with the DMCs through high speed
mono directional buses of type ARINC629. The LCDU725 operational software
either graphic and/or calculation and the data base can be downloaded in the
DU through DMCs. In addition the LCDU725 has a dedicated RS232 interface
for software tests.
The own operation of the DU is checked by an internal circuity called BITE
(Built-In-Test-Equipment). It provides fault isolation and reporting to the on
board maintenance system as well as to shop maintenance.
Moreover, the DU manages the feedback of critical parameters, via ARINC629,
such as attitude, heading and engine parameters.

DMC COMPONENT DESCRIPTION
The DMC (Display Management Computer) is a computer which aquires and
processes all the signals received from aircraft sensors and systems in order to
present information to the crew for safe flight, navigation, engine control,
system monitoring and warning information.
The DMC memory contains both DMC and Display Unit Software, including
spares. The DMC is able to:
S load in its memory both DMC and DU software from a dedicated Data
Loader Interface
S realize cross loading operations (loading/transmitting both DMC and DU
software from/to other DMCs)
S realize DUs software tele-loading operation through ARINC 629 buses
interface
Moreover the DMC receives and transmit to the displays:
S Display Units information returned on ARINC 629 buses
S bitmap information (wheather forecast, EPGWS) coming from Ethernet bus
The DMC is in charge of the selection of the wheather radar ARINC 453 output
data buses. The DMC can receive the following A453 inputs:
S data bus 1 & 2 from the radar 1 T/R unit
S data bus 1 & 2 from the radar 2 T/R unit
S data bus from the DMC3 A453 output.
The DMC provides one ARINC 453 output bus which is the selection of one
among the ARINC 453 input buses.

EIS FUNCTIONAL OPERATION
The functioning of the EIS equipment software is characterized by two phases:
S a start up phase, dedicated to initialization, test and tele-loading activities,
activated after the power-on or reset of the processor.
S a processing phase, dedicated to operational and maintenance activities,
activated cyclically, after the start-up phase.
Associated to these two phases of the software, four functioning modes are
defined:
S The POST Mode (Power-On Self Test) activated during the start-up phase,
dedicated to internal hardware and software tests.
S The TELE Mode (Tele-Loading), activated during the start-up phase,
dedicated to tele-load software into DU or DMC.
S The OPER Mode (Operational), activated during the processing phase,
dedicated to flight and navigation information management.
S The INTR Mode (Interactive), activated during the processing phase,
dedicated to maintenance activities.
After a long power cut or after many manual resets, DMC and DU wait at least
for 300 ms before reading the ground/flight discrete transmitted by the LGCIU
equipment.
S DU software stored in DMCs and DUs
Tele-loading fuction allows the new EIS software to be loaded in any DU or
DMC. This function can be devided into three sub-functions
S Tele-loading from an external data loader (aircraft data loader or portable
data loader) into DMC. This operation is called uploading.
S Tele-loading from a DMC into DU is called cross loading
S Tele-loading from a DMC into DMC is called cross loading
NOTE:

DMC and DU can activate two lists of POST:


S The light POST, which represents the minimum POST list to activate. This
minimum list is activated only after a fatal failure during the OPER mode.
The duration of these tests is as short as possible.
S The complete POST which represents the whole POST mode activities and
which is activated in all other conditions (see DU/DMC changing modes).
The duration of these tests is equal to 40 seconds for the LCDU and 35
seconds for the DMC.
During the post mode, or in case of interruption during POSTs, when the DU
starts again and if the results of the previous POST was OK, the message
SELF TEST IN PROGRESS (MAX 40 SECONDS) is displayed in green
character on two lines in the middle of the screen, when the required resources
are available. This message is not displayed during the POST mode if a failure
message is already being displayed or when POST error is detected.
The new EIS software is divided into two parts:
S DMC software stored in DMCs,
S Du software stored in the DMCs.

for LH only the Basic Function for Teleloading (from DMC 1) is


available!

FEEDBACK MONITORING FUNCTIONAL OPERATION
The feedback monitoring function permits to detect and to confirm a
discrepancy between the value of a critical parameter which is displayed on a
DU, called opposite value, and the value of this parameter aquired directly from
the same sourced by another DU, called direct value.
High criticality objectives are associated with the presentation in the cockpit of
the following so called CRITICAL parameters:
S pitch and roll angles,
S engine primary indications,
S baroaltitude,
S heading,
The feedback monitoring can be on-side or off-side.
Each image is monitored by two DUs as follows:
S DU1/PFD1: EWD, ND2
S DU2/ND1: PFD2, EWD
S DU3/EWD: PFD1, PFD2
S DU4/SD:
ND1, ND2
S DU5/ND2: PFD1, SD
S DU6/PFD2: ND1, SD
The feedback monitoring of the PFD, ND, SD and EWD images is executed at
each DU cycle.
For these critical parameters, the data processed in the monitored DU are sent
to two other DUs (the monitoring DUs) through the DMCs.
The monitored DU includes two processing channels each one assigned to the
generation of one image column over two. Just before sending a critical
parameter data to the final graphic memories both processors CP1 and CP2
direct them to the interface processor for comparison of the two values. Since
they are produced at the same time they should be equal.

A discrepancy stops the monitored DU, whereas in the other case the feedback
value is sent to the other DUs for comparison with the originating sensor value.
When the difference is too high, the monitoring DU displays a message and
triggers a warning to be displayed by the FWC.
The feedback signals are sent by the DU to the DMCs, then to the monitoring
DUs via an ARINC 629 data link.
The feedback is valid only if the feedback parameters are acquired from an
off-side DMC of the monitored DU, so that the feedback channel is segregated
from the monitored channel. If this is not possible, the feedback function is still
executed with feedback parameters acquisition from the on-side DMC.
NOTE:

If a DU is no more monitored by another DU, it displays the


amber message DU NOT MONITORED
When a DU triggers an order to display a feedback check message, a specific
message is announced by the monitoring DU as follows:
S PFD CAPT discrepancy: CHECK CAPT PFD message
S ND CAPT discrepancy: CHECK CAPT ND message
S EWD discrepancy: CHECK EWD message
S SD discrepancy: CHECK SD message
S ND F/O discrepancy: CHECK F/O ND message
S PFD F/O discrepancy: CHECK F/O PFD message
If a feedback check message is triggered, a corresponding TSD (Class 1
internal failure) is stored in the DU BITE zone which is not transmitted to
DMCs.

EIS BITE
GENERAL
The Indicating system BITE is splitted into an EIS BITE and a Flight Warning
System (FWS) BITE.
The EIS BITE is ensured by each DMC (Display Management Computer) and
each DU (Display Unit). Each DMC provides an interface with the CMCs
(Central Maintenance Computers) and reports the failure information
associated with the DMCs, DUs and their related wiring.
The FWS BITE is ensured by each FWC (Flight Warning Computer), each
SDAC (System Data Acquisition Concentrator) and the ECP (ECAM Control
Panel), but only FWC1 provides the FWS interface with the CMCs. It reports
failures related to FWCs, SDACs, ECP, and their associated wiring.
The Indicating system BITE information is available through the MCDU

EIS MCDU MENU DESCRIPTION
Functionality
The SYSTEM REPORT/TEST page enables to select the ATA 31 INST
DISPLAY function in order to interrogate the EIS SYSTEM for failure, report
display and testing.
The selection of one of the 3 DMCs will give access to the related DMC BITE
page. Each DMC is a type 1 computer with a BITE menu providing a GROUND
SCANNING and the following specific functions.
The SYSTEM TEST function allows an automatic test of the EIS and an
operator display visual check.
The system test performs in the following order:
S a DMC self test,
S a DMC/DUs A629 link test,
S a connected DUs self test,
S a display check.
NOTE:

This test is used in service whenever a DMC or DU is replaced to


check that it has not undergone any damage during installation.
The SWTG/BUS/DU TESTS function allows a manual check of the EIS
reconfiguration as well as an automatic test of the data bus links between the
selected DMC and the other DMCs and DUs. It includes also a DUs brightness
test.
The PIN PROG/STATUS AND XLOAD function allows to check the hardware
and software pin program status of the selected DMC as well as the status of
the light box bulbs and LCD screen of its related DUs. A X-LOAD function is
also available to update the software contents of the DMCs or DUs after
replacement.
NOTE:

If one of the three DMC is in interactive mode, a MAINTENANCE


MODE message is displayed on the DUs driven by the DMC.
This message is not displayed during execution of, the
SWITCHING TEST, the GROUND SCANNING, the various
DISPLAY TEST, the DU teleloading of the function PIN
PROG/STATUS AND XLOAD.

SYSTEM TEST PROCEDURE
During the SYSTEM TEST the DMC are in the INTERACTIVE mode.
Throughout the duration of the test the DMC sends a page, held on the MCDU
by the CMC, indicating TEST IN PROGRESS Xs. The length of time Xs is
the time in seconds required to execute all the abovedefined tests, taking into
account a reasonable maximum execution time for each test.
DMC self test equivalent to:
S DMC POST
S DU POST
S A629 TEST
These tests are the same as those run after a power rise following a long
power cut on the ground.
The fault messages and associated TSD concerning A629 and DU internal
faults are stored in zone 3 of the EEPROM (storage of internal faults on the
ground). The fault messages and associated TSD concerning external bus
faults are stored in the RAM.

Test Procedure
S set initial conditions,
S start test
S color pattern display on the captain PFD and ND
The operator checks that the color pattern is actually displayed on the PFD and
ND. This operation is repeated three times as there are three different patterns
available.
S first pattern: Color display
S second pattern: White/Black display
S third pattern: Black/White display
Test Report
NOTE:

NOTE: For maintenance messages and TSD associated with this


function, the date and time are not given.
When no failure is detected TEST OK is displayed in the middle of the screen.

TELE-LOADING DESCRIPTION
A so-called Tele-Loading function provides the capability for software upgrades
or initial software loading. All DMCs and DUs require Tele-Loading after a
new component has been installed.
The Tele-Loading function is achieved by crossloding a software from DMC to
DMC or from DMC to DU, but it is possible to load a new software for the
system to DMC 1 only from the MDDU or a PDL.
NOTE:

Teleloading from MDDU to all dmcs is optional. Some operators


have only the basic function (Loading to DMC1 only)
The following figure gives examples of the three different Tele-Loading
subfunctions. For the Display Unit Cross-Loading subfunction, the maintenance
operator has to configure the Display Units on the Emitter DMC by using the
DMC reconfiguration switches.

DMC X-LOADING DESCRIPTION
By pressing the 6R key of the DMC menu the page DMCx PIN PROG/STATUS
AND XLOAD on display (A) allows to select the DMC XLOAD page (key 2L) on
display (B) which allows to display:
S the software P/N of the DMC source
S the software P/N of the DMC target and to launch the X-load process (only
if the DMC source is not faulty).
If the DMC1 is the DMC source, the DMCs targets are:
S the DMC2 then DMC3
If the DMC2 is the DMC source, the DMCs targets are:
S the DMC1 then the DMC3
If the DMC3 is the DMC source, the DMCs targets are:
S the DMC1 then the DMC2
This order is repeated on all DMC XLOAD pages. The key 1R is then pressed
which leads to the display XLOAD NOT AVAIL means the DMC target is not
available for X-loading. EMPTY means the DMC target is available for
X-loading.
If all DMCs targets are followed by the message: XLOAD NOT AVAIL, or if all
software P/N of the DMCs targets are identical to the DMC source, then the
amber message DMC XLOAD NOT ALLOWED is dsiplayed as on display.
If the indication START XLOAD is displayed as on display, the operator
presses the key 5L and gets access to the TRANSFER IN PROGRESS Page.
