Purpose
The CU 5301-( ) control unit is used to operate and control the RN 3320 - ( ) or RN 3330 - ( ) navigation
receiver. Both enable the reception and evaluation of VOR and LOC signals in the 108.00 MHz 117.95 MHz frequency range on 200 channels. The RN 3320 - ( ) also contains a glidepath receiver
for the reception and evaluation of glidepath signals in the 329.15 MHz to 335.00 MHz frequency range
on 40 channels.
The mechanical construction of the control unit is such that it can be installed without limitation in
aircraft. There is no restriction with regard to installation in the instrument panel or installation by rigid
attachment to the fuselage in any aircraft, including rotary wing aircraft, in the verified environmental
categories.

General description
1.3.1
Mechanical description
The control unit is designed for installation in the instrument panel of aircraft. The dimensions
correspond to the ARINC standard for standard instruments of 60 mm (2 1/4") diameter. Installation
is by means of four bolts (back panel mounting).
All the controls and indicators are located on the front panel. The equipment connectors are fitted on
the back.
The control unit consists of the following circuit boards:
Display Board,
Switch Board,
Processor Board,
Power Supply Board.
Mechanically the control unit consists of a front section and rear section. The front section contains
the Display Board and the Switch Board and these boards are connected to each other by a connector
and held in place within the unit by four bolts. The Processor Board, which is also secured to the front
section by two bolts, is mounted on the switch board. The Power Supply Board is inserted into the
rear section and secured from outside (back of rear section) by three bolts. After all the boards are
assembled, the front and rear sections are joined and secured to each other by four bolts inserted
from the front section.
1.3.2
Electrical description
After power on, an initialization phase takes place between the control unit and navigation receiver.
During this period, data transmission takes place from the remote navigation receiver to the control
unit. This is necessary because the data backup takes place in the remote navigation receiver. On
completion of this phase, the mode which was set before power off is automatically displayed on the
control unit.
The frequencies are indicated by means of an LC display. The required active working frequency can
be set in the top line of the LC display by means of the MHz and kHz frequency selector switches.
The MHz rotary switch engages at steps of 1 MHz, the kHz rotary switch at 50 kHz steps. In the
frequency preselection mode, a faster frequency change between the set active frequency and the
preset frequency is achieved by pressing the (<->) exchange key.
A storage device enables 20 different frequencies to be stored, which are also retained when the unit
is switched off.
Data transmission between the control unit and navigation receiver takes place through a bi-directional,
serial RS 422 interface.

Aircraft wiring
2.4.1
General
The following points are to be observed for the wiring.
a.) Only cable fit for aviation (self-extinguishing) may be used. AWG 24 for power supply and AWG 24
for other cables.
b.) The interface lines TX-A/TX-B and RX-A/RX-B are each to be laid as 2-core twisted and screened
(AWG 24) cables.
c.) Rubber sleeves are to be fitted over the soldering points on the equipment connector.
DV 60511.03/.04 Issue 07/97
Page 2-1
CU 5301 - ( )
d.) A 1 A fuse or circuit breaker should be fitted in the power supply.
e.) No HF cable should be included in the cable harnesses. Laying connecting cables together with
cables which carry LF power or impulses is also to be avoided.

Operating instruction
3.2.1
Preparation
Switch on the aircraft power supply (check that the circuit breaker for the navigation system is set).
WARNING!
Do not switch on the control unit if engines or motors are being started up or shut down.
3.2.2
Switching on the control unit
a. Rotate the volume control clockwise and switch on the navigation system.
NOTE
System initialization takes place, i.e. data is transmitted between the control unit and
navigation receiver for the first 5 to 10 seconds after power on. The display flashes during
this period. After completion of the initialization, the mode which was set before power
off appears.
In all modes, disturbances of the navigation system are displayed in the form of fault
messages.

A comprehensive description of the various modes follows the general operating instructions.
3.2.3
Test (self-test)
a. Press both keys IDT and MDE simultaneously. All segments of the LC display shall flash. At the
same time the VOR/LOC needle (vertical needle) of the connected display unit shall deflect halfway
and the VOR/LOC warning flag disappear from the field of view. The GS needle (horizontal needle)
of the connected display unit shall also be half deflected and the GS flag shall disappear from the
field of view.
DV 60511.03/.04 Issue 07/97
Page 3-3
CU 5301 - ( )
3.2.4
VOR mode
1. Set the frequency of the required VOR station.
2. To monitor the identification signal, press the IDT key (ON appears briefly in the bottom line of the
LC display). Monitor the identification signal and compare it with the set identification signal of the
required VOR station. Adjust the volume using the VOL control.
3. If an evaluable VOR signal enables a safe bearing to be established, the vertical needle deflects
and the VOR/LOC flag disappears from the field of view.
4. Rotate the omnibearing selector (OBS) on the display unit until the TO/FROM display indicates TO
and the vertical needle has settled in the mid position. The heading indication then indicates the
magnetic course to the VOR station.
5. Course deviations during the approach are indicated in the direction of correction by the vertical
needle (course correction in the direction of the needle deflection).
6. When overflying the VOR station, the TO/FROM display moves from TO to FROM. If the flight is
continued on the same heading, the course indication shows the magnetic position line of the VOR
station which the aircraft is approaching, with the vertical needle in the mid position.
3.2.5
Monitoring flight and weather information
1. Press the IDT key. The word OFF appears briefly in the bottom line of the LC display. Identification
transmissions are faded out.
2. The fading out of the VOR indication signal means that flight and weather information can now be
monitored.
3. Press the IDT key again. The word ON appears briefly in the display. The identification signal can
now be monitored.
3.2.6
LOC mode
1. Set the frequency of the required localizer.
2. Switch on the VOR identification (press the IDT key, ON appears briefly in the display). Monitor the
Morse identification signal and compare it with the set identification signal of the required localizer.
3. The vertical needle (command needle) deflects during the approach to the localizer in the direction
in which the course is to be corrected in order to obtain the correct landing course. A mid position
of the needle means that the aircraft is on the correct line for landing.
Page 3-4
DV 60511.03/.04 Issue 07/97
CU 5301 - ( )
3.2.7
GS mode with the RN 3320 - (1)
1. Set the frequency of the localizer.
2. Switch on the VOR identification (press the IDT key, ON appears briefly in the display). Monitor the
Morse identification signal and compare it with the set identification signal.
3. If a glidepath signal of sufficient strength is present, the GS warning flag disappears from the field
of view.
4. The GS needle (horizontal command needle) deflects during the approach in the direction in which
the flight level has to be corrected in order to obtain the specified glidepath. A mid position of the
needle means that the aircraft is on the glidepath.
3.3
Operation of the various modes
The navigation system contains various functions which are performed under three modes. The
individual modes are selected by pressing the MDE key on the control unit.
Frequency setting mode
Display of the active frequency in the top line. The bottom line is switched off. The active
frequency can be directly changed using the frequency selector switches.
Frequency preselection mode
Display of the active and preset frequency. The preset frequency can be set using the
frequency change switches. Pressing the exchange key changes over from the active to the
preset frequency.
Channel setting mode
Display of the stored frequencies in the storage channels. The channels can be selected
using the frequency selector switches.
NOTE
All setting or frequency changes are automatically stored after two seconds. This means

A storage procedure can be performed at any time and is activated by pressing the STO key.
a. Press the STO key. The active frequency remains indicated in the top line. The navigation system
is ready to receive on this frequency. The active frequency is shown flashing in the bottom line and,
in the frequency preselection mode, the preset frequency. Set the required frequency using the
kHz frequency selector switch and the MHz frequency selector switch.
b. Press the STO key. The next free channel is shown flashing "ch". The channel in which the
frequency is to be entered is selected using the MHz and kHz frequency switches. Channels which
are already occupied are indicated by "CH" and can be overwritten.
c. Press the STO key. The frequency is stored in the selected channel and the storage procedure
ended.
NOTE
If no input (action) takes place for more than 7 seconds during the storage procedure,
the operation is automatically broken off. A storage operation can be broken off at any
time by pressing the MDE key.

Safety precautions
l
Switch off the control unit before starting or shutting down engines !
l
The NAV system should be protected from the aircraft power supply by its own 1 A
circuit breaker.
l
Warning! Reception is only possible when there is a quasi-optical sight to the VOR
station.
l
When the warning flag in the display unit appears, the course deviation needle is in
the mid position, it must then not be used in the continuing flight !
l
Warning! When flying with the autopilot locked on to VOR, the OBS must not be
rotated because any change in the off-course needle is followed by the autopilot !
l
If the off-course needle instrument fails, no warning flag appears. Check the offcourse needle by activating the TEST function. The off-course needle must deflect
halfway. Important to check before approach to landing !
l
During approaches on the back beam, a needle deflection no longer corresponds to
a command indication. In this special case, course corrections must be made
opposite to the needle deflection !
l
When overflying VOR stations a cone of silence of ± 45° occurs in which the warning
flag appears and the off-course needle stays in the mid position.
l
When flying over mountains the off-course needle may deviate about the mid position
(reflections) when approaching or leaving VOR stations. VOR stations produce
substantially more stable indications under these conditions.
l
EMC note: If the antennas of RT equipment and the navigation receiver are not
sufficiently decoupled, it is possible that the warning flag may appear during transmission or the off-course needle may deflect. Inadequate decoupling is possible with
airframes made of wood or synthetic materials or where the antennas are mounted
close together.
