Electronic Data Transfer to and from PC Card Based Avionics Systems
Teledyne’s PC Card Emulator (PCE) Kit is a system that interfaces with the Honeywell EGPWS Mark V and VII LRUs,
making data distribution and loading easier. Designed to be used with the Teledyne
PMAT 2000® (Portable Maintenance Access Terminal) system,
the PC Card Emulator Cable provides a seamless method to electronically load PC Card dependent systems, without the need for PC card media.
Eliminate PC Cards
The Teledyne PC Card Emulator Cable plugs directly into the PC Card slot of the target LRU on one end, and into the
PMAT 2000® unit on the other end. This creates a direct connection between the PMAT 2000® and the target LRU,
therefore eliminating the need for a PC Card to load the data into the LRU. This unique solution provides flightline
maintenance personnel with an alternative loading method and eliminates the inconvenience of using PC Cards on
Seamless End-to-End Distribution
Another benefit of this direct connection is that the PMAT 2000® system provides a link to the Gateway stations and
can electronically distribute the data and receive the data loading reports. This data can come from various media
types or be electronically transferred via the LoadStar® Server Enterprise (LSE) or LoadStar® software tools.
In addition, the Terrain database updates can be downloaded directly from the Honeywell website into the LSE
database, providing electronic delivery, directly from the vendor to the aircraft. This streamlined process
significantly speeds up delivery time and reduces cost.
Easy Data Loading and Storage
The PMAT 2000® system conveniently leads the user through the upload and/or download process. It displays the
load progress and status, and automatically confirms the upload. The PMAT 2000® also automatically records
information about data loads and transfers it to the Gateway station(s) and the LSE central server, making it easy
to track loading activities.
