The System Screen provides pilots with tremendous flexibility by providing a whole other page to monitor important functions. Any function, from trim, flaps and rudder to baggage door relays can be monitored on this page.
If you have a sensor with an output, the MVP-50T can monitor it. Simply program the MVP-50T to accept the input, and name the input whatever you want. The options are virtually endless.
Each parameter monitored by the MVP-50T has programmable ranges and limits. If the function exceeds a programmed limit, the MVP-50T will alert you immediately, either via an audible alarm in your headset, a bright external LED, a flashing number on the MVP-50T Annunciator Panel or a combination of the three.
Regardless of what you choose to monitor on the System Screen, all of the main functions from the Main Screen are still shown on the righthand side bar. Every displayed Main Screen Function is depicted digitally and in a graphical strip gauge for easy reference and precision.
Pilots are required by law to perform a Weight and Balance check every time they fly. The MVP-50 makes this sometimes cumbersome and frustrating task a breeze with its advanced Weight and Balance screen.
The MVP-50’s dynamic Weight and Balance screen allows pilots to enter weights for each individual arm of the aircraft. Arms are input and stored during system setup. The screen also displays the weight of fuel onboard, as well as the maximum weight, total weight and the difference between the two. The aircraft Center of Gravity is also digitally displayed for quick reference
The MVP-50’s CG Limit Screen provides the pilot with a Weight and Balance Envelope that gives an instant visual feedback regarding the aircraft’s Center of Gravity information. The screen also digitally displays the numbers that are critical to the aircraft Weight and Balance and Center of Gravity.
Create Checklists for any procedure, such as Takeoff, Landing, Emergency Procedures and more. The MVP-50T allows pilots to store as many as 100 unique, programmable checklists, so you will never run out of storage space. All Checklists are stored alphabetically in the MVP-50, and can be retreived with the click of a button.
The MVP-50T Checklists are not simply lists of tasks, but they provide feedback to the pilot. The Checklists allow you to place a checkmark next to any step in a list as each step is completed. If you exit a Checklist to view another screen and then return to the Checklist at a later point during the flight, the MVP-50T will remember the exact step you were on when you were last using the Checklist.
With the MVP-50T, you will never again have to guess as to your fuel-on-board status. The MVP-50T keeps track of Fuel Flow, Fuel Remaining, Time to Empty, up to four Fuel Levels, Fuel to Waypoint, Fuel in Reserve once your next waypoint is reached, Miles per Gallon, Fuel Used since your last fill up and Fuel Used for each flight. Though Fuel Flow is accurate to .1 gallon, pilots may choose to display fuel in Gallons, British Gallons, Liters or Pounds.
The MVP-50T boasts accurate, stable fuel flow to .1 gph. While other fuel flows either have quick response with nonstable readings, or stable readings with sluggish response, proprietary algorithms allow the MVP-50T’s fuel flow rapid response to engine adjustments without irritating, jumpy readings.
The MVP-50T not only displays Fuel Level, it also displays a “calculated” Fuel Remaining. This Fuel Remaining is based on the factors of time and your Fuel Flow. For example, if you start with 40 gallons on board and have flown for one hour at 10 gph, you will have 30 gallons remaining. Providing the pilot resets the fuel level when the tanks are refilled, this function is an extremely accurate and powerful tool to assist you with fuel management.
The MVP-50T automatically determines how much time is remaining before the tanks run dry. This function is calculated on current Fuel Flow and Fuel Remaining. The MVP-50T will alert you when the Time to Empty reaches a pilot-programmable limit.
Up to four fuel levels at a time may be monitored and displayed on the MVP-50T. Though Fuel Levels are accurate to .1 gallon, pilots may choose to display fuel in Gallons, British Gallons, Liters or Pounds.
The MVP-50T not only receives information from an Electronics International flow transducer to provide you with pinpoint fuel flow accuracy, it also receives GPS information. By combining GPS information with the flow transducer output, the MVP-50T is capable of providing pilots with how much fuel is needed to reach the next waypoint.
Another feature the MVP-50T derives from Fuel Flow and GPS information is Miles per Gallon. You will be able to immediately determine the best fuel economy for your flight, while in the air. Pilots can switch between Statute Miles per Gallon and Nautical Miles per Gallon.
The MVP-50T keeps track of how much fuel has been used during each flight, as well as how much fuel has been used since the last time the tanks have been filled. Having such an accurate fuel used history will allow you to more accurately plan for cross-country flight fuel stops.
