General Description
Safety-Conscious Utilization
1.4.
Safety-Conscious Utilization
For safe operation of Radio Management Unit (RMU) the following
notes have to be followed :
• Do not connect the unit to an AC voltage or voltage source of more
than 30.3 VDC.
• Do not connect the unit to a power source with the polarities
incorrect.
• Protect the unit from the aircraft system by its own 1 A circuit breaker.
Switch off the system when starting engines!
1.4.1. COM Function
A voice communication test shall be performed before starting the
engine.
It should be noted that, if the communication test is carried out close
to a ground station, the results may be positive even if the antenna
cable is broken or short-circuited. In such a case, at a distance of 5 to
10 km and above, communication might not be possible.
•
Speak always loud, clear and not too fast for optimal voice communication.
•
Keep the microphone always close to the lips otherwise a special suppressing circuit in
the VHF COM will not be capable to suppress normal cabin noise.
•
Use only microphones or headsets which are suitable for use in an aircraft.
•
Transmit buttons can stick and cause continuous transmission. Observe the TX indication
in the display.
1.4.2. NAV Function
• Reception is only possible when there is a quasi-optical sight to
the VOR station.
• 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.
• When the warning flag in the indicator appears, the course
deviation needle is in the mid-position, it must then not be used in
the continuing flight!
• If the off-course needle instrument fails, no warning flag appears.
Check the off-course needle by activating the TEST function. The
off-course needle must deflect halfway. Important to check before
approach to landing.
• 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!
• 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.
• When flying over mountains the VOR needle may deviate about
the mid position (reflections) when approaching or leaving VOR
stations. The doubler VOR stations produce substantially more
stable indications under these conditions.

General Description
Safety-Conscious Utilization
EMC note: If the antennas of core modules COM and NAV 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.
1.4.3. XPDR Function
Do not set a code with 75XX / 76XX / 77XX. These special codes are
reserved for emergencies. See "Special Codes for Air Emergency",
page 54.
In the ON and ALT modes, the identification pulse is transmitted in addition to the reply code for
approximately 25 seconds only in response to Mode A requests.
1.4.4. ADF Function
ADF equipment is sensitive to radio interference. This includes:
18
•
Atmospheric interference caused by weather conditions (thunder storms, thunder storm
conditions).
•
Static charging of the aircraft airframe when flying in wet conditions with ice particles. Both
can lead to uncontrolled deflections of the indicator. In the case of static charging the
reception from an NDB station can be completely lost for several minutes;
•
Interference in the aircraft supply system caused by generators or ignition systems can
considerably reduce the range to NDB stations. The following checks can be made during
flight;
If there is interference when receiving an NDB station:
o Switch off the generator for a short period and observe the effect;
o In the case of piston-engine aircraft switch the ignition from magneto 1 to magneto 2
and to 0 in succession. Observe the effect. If the cause of the interference is identified,
initiate ground maintenance procedures!
•
Effect during twilight and night: Unusable bearings can occur particularly during twilight if
the change in the ionisation layer effects the phases of ground and space waves. It is also
possible for these effects to occur at night.
•
Coastal errors: When flying over the sea, bearing errors can occur due to refraction of
electromagnetic waves at the cost. Further possible causes of incorrect bearings are:
steep banking flight; flying with the landing gear down.
•
When overflying an NDB station the pointer of the indicator should ideally move through
90° (station on the right) or 270° (station on the left) before stabilizing in the 180° direction
after the overflight.
•
Due to a cone of uncertainty of 45°, which is due to physical conditions, it must be borne
in mind that an unstable indication during the flight will be produced by the cone of
uncertainty resulting in multiple pointer deflections. After the aircraft has left the cone, the
indication stabilizes at 180°. This can differ from NDB to NDB.
•
Correct approaches to radio transmitters are therefore only possible if they are expressly
performed as navigational aids in the AIP.

General Description
General Electrical Description
1.5.
General Electrical Description
After power on, an initialization phase starts between the radio management unit and core modules
(COM, NAV, ADF or XPDR). During this period, data transmission is done from the remote core
module to the radio management unit. The display pixels and LEDs are activated, then identification
and system data shown for 5 seconds. This is necessary because the data backup takes place in the
remote core modules. On completion of this phase, the setting of the mode switch before power off is
automatically reactivated and displayed on the radio management unit.
The RMU5000 provides the following self test capabilities:
1.5.1. Power on Built in Test (PBIT)
The tested elements are:
•
Program object code - ROM memory
•
RAM memory
•
NVRAM buffer
•
NVRAM contents - persistent data
GO
The system starts to work.
FAIL
The system shows an error message and
needs maintenance.
1.5.2. Continuous Built in Test (CBIT)
The continuous self test is always running in the background. The tested elements are:
•
Interrupt system
•
Communication lines
GO
The system continues working.
FAIL
The system shows an error message.
1.5.3. Initiated Built in Test (IBIT)
The initiated self test is being accessible by entering the Menu mode and pressing the Test button with a
long press. Generally the IBIT and PBIT are identical for the content of the test.
GO
The system continues working.
FAIL
The system shows an error message and needs
maintenance.
1.5.4. Operation
•
The respective function is selected by pressing the buttons COM, NAV, XPDR or COM,
NAV, ADF. The frequencies are indicated by means of a LCD display.
•
In function COM /NAV and ADF the desired active operating frequencies can be set on
the LCD display by means of the MHz and kHz frequency selector switches respectively
the code for the XPDR function.
•
The MHz rotary switch changes in steps of 1 MHz (COM/NAV). Depending on the
associated core module, the kHz rotary switch (COM/NAV) changes in 50 kHz, 25 kHz or
8.33 kHz steps. In frequency preselection mode, a quick frequency change between the
set active frequency and the preset frequency is achieved by pressing the (exchange key).
•
A storage device enables 9 different frequencies per core module (COM/NAV/ADF) and
one VFR code (XPDR) to be stored, in a non-volatile memory.
•
Data transmission between the radio management unit and core modules takes place via
a bidirectional, serial RS422 interface.

Aircraft Wiring
The following points are to be observed for the wiring:
• Only cable fit for aviation (self-extinguishing) may be used.
AWG 20 for power supply and AWG 24 for other cables.
• 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.
• Rubber sleeves are to be fitted over the soldering points on the
unit connector.
• A fuse or circuit breaker should be fitted in the power supply of the
core modules (see aircraft wiring diagrams.
• No RF cable should be included in the cable harnesses. A bundle
of connecting cables together with cables which carry AF power or
pulses is also be avoided.
• Check the wiring carefully before switching on the Control units
and core module, particularly that (UB+) and (GND) have not been
mixed up.
2.6.1. Electrical Bonding and Grounding
• Make sure that the control panel is correctly connected to aircraft
ground (structure).
• Make sure that the electrical continuity between the control panel
and the structure is also achieved without removing the protective
finish at the attachment points.
• Note that the electrical bonding area shall be adequately sealed or
coated in order to avoid corrosion.
• Note that the resistance between the component which ensure
equipment bonding and any point of this item of equipment do not
exceed 20 mΩ.

2.6.2. Tandem Operation (Master-Slave Operation)
If two Radio Management Units are used, the Radio Management Unit to which the core modules are
attached is determined as the MASTER unit.
The software recognizes the attached core module and makes the MASTER/SLAVE assignment.
Generally the SLAVE unit displays the same information as the MASTER unit with the following
restrictions:
•
The SLAVE RMU5000 can have a separate illumination curve, setable via "Illumination
Setup Screen", see page 37. The illumination voltage is the same as applied on the
MASTER RMU5000.
•
The SLAVE RMU5000 is connected to MASTER via connector "Tandem J4" only. Do not
use P1, P2, P3 at all on the SLAVE RMU5000.
2.6.3. Panel and Display Lighting
The radio management unit is fitted out with panel and display lighting. It can also be connected via a
dimmer system.

the same value as minimum point. Accelerative change function shall be used.
Maximum Illumination Point
The maximum illumination point is the 5/14/28 VDC point where the dimming ends. This can be
changed on the x-axis from the dimming entry point to 14/28 VDC or down on the y-axis if the x-value
reaches the maximum 14/28 VDC. The point represents the highest illumination value.
For 5 VDC illumination, this point is able to be configured for maximum 5 VDC.
Use the MHz KNOB to adjust the value:
•
Rotate clockwise to increase the value.
•
Rotate counter clockwise to decrease the value.

3.3.1.11. Jamming of Transmit Button
The VHF transceiver system is fitted with a protective circuit to protect against damage in case of
jamming of the transmit button or a short circuit on the key line. For continuous transmissions
exceeding three minutes the protective circuit automatically switches from transmission to reception.
This avoids the switched channel being blocked.
In order to continue transmitting even with the transmit button
jammed, the VHF transceiver must be switched off and then
back on again. After that the VHF transceiver then continues to
