AMETEK, THE Pennsylvania-based avionics manufacturer, is to integrate its Sentinel data acquisition unit (DAU) with Honeywell's Primus 2000 XP avionics system for the Bombardier Global Express long-range business jet.

The DAU will be used to monitor inputs from the electronic engine-controller, electrical system, air-data computer, hydraulic and other aircraft systems, before passing it via ARINC 429 buses to Honeywell's integrated-avionics IC-800 computers. The information will displayed on the automated engine instrument and crew alerting system.

Ametek is to supply the integrated display system for the Agusta A.109 helicopter. The full- colour multi-purpose flat-panel display is part of the Sentinel instrument system, which includes airframe and engine data-acquisition units.
