This B737NG Control Display Unit is a panel that has been developed in close cooperation with airline pilots. Thanks to our cutting edge CAN technology it offers second-to-none fidelity, functionality and reliability, as well as unique features you will not find elsewhere.
The CDU, or FMC (for Flight Management Computer), is the brain of the aircraft. While it might look unassuming, this calculator on steroirds has considerable calculating power. Before each flight, the pilots input all the data into the CDU – the route, the waypoints, the callsign, the weight of the aicraft, the fuel and payload are all saved in the CDU and used by the aircraft logic to perform extensive calculations necessary for the autopilot to function properly.
CAN technology is used for communication between panels in the simulator and the computer controlling them. A CAN bus provides stable operation and optimizes computer’s load. This industrial standard has been developed to function in electrically noisy environments and is widely used in aviation, automotive and maritime idustries.
There is absolutely no need for configuration or calibration. The panel is 100% Plug&Play and ready to use out of the box. No drivers required – Windows recognizes all simworld hardware like a mouse or a printer. USB port can be even changed during operation (no need for using a fixed USB port). All panels and gauges are fully backlit.
