Electronic Standby Instrument
Pack 50 years of standby experience in your panel
L3Harris' Next-Generation Electronic Standby Instrument System — ESI-500 — is one of the most advanced standby instruments designed specifically for piston and turboprop aircraft and helicopters. The compact unit is scalable and comes standard with altitude, attitude, slip/skid, vertical speed and aircraft track.
Options are available for the display of navigation information and Synthetic Vision (SynVis), including terrain and obstacles. Magnetic heading is an available option when coupled with the low cost and compact MAG-500 magnetometer. The ESI-500 is compatible with existing NAV radios and GPS hardware. Upon loss of power an internal lithium-ion battery pack automatically powers the unit and magnetometer without interruption.
