As the leader in cockpit audio, we have often been asked to recommend an entertainment device for general aviation aircraft. This had been difficult, because the selection was limited, and expensive. Not any more! The PS Engineering PCD7100-Series integrated Intercom and entertainment system is designed from the beginning for aircraft installations. By combining a superb Compact Disk (CD) player with a high-performance intercom and audio system, installation and operation is simplified.
The PCD7100 incorporates PS Engineering’s exclusive IntelliVox®, the completely automatic digitally controlled intercom squelch. IntelliVox® has been a proven performer in all types of aircraft, from warbirds to helicopters. The PCD7100 has music and intercom volume controls for precise adjustment of the audio levels. The five back-lit CD push button controls have LED mode annunciation.They are Play/Pause, Skip, Repeat, Stop, Fast Forward, Rewind and Eject.
In ISO mode, the pilot hears only aircraft radio traffic without music or intercom interruptions. In CREW mode, the pilot and copilot hear the internal CD player, and radio traffic. The passengers can either listen to the internal player, or use another entertainment source, depending on installation configuration. Like all PS Engineering intercoms, both the pilot and copilot have transmit capability over the aircraft radios. In ALL mode, all intercom positions hear the aircraft radios and the CD player, with our proprietary “Soft Mute™” circuit.
What about vibration? The Compact Disk Player is designed to withstand severe turbulence and very hard landings without missing a beat.
The PCD7100 will be well suited to any aircraft cockpit or cabin vibration environment.
The PCD7100 is also very tolerant of unusual attitudes and will function in almost any normal category pitch or roll condition. The automatic fail-safe feature (EMG) connects the pilot directly to the aircraft radios if power is removed from the PCD7100 for any reason.
For model PCD7100-I, an Intercom Recording System (IRS) is available. It is the same as the DRAWS option, but without the Aural Warning System
The system was designed for maximum ergonomic simplicity, with easy to see and use buttons in a natural configuration.The PCD7100 is manufactured in the USA, and will be FAA-Approved to the most current international standards. PS Engineering’s 1-year no-hassle warranty and ProSupport program back the units for a lifetime of worry free operation.
