Canyon’s FliteLine™ DFS 43A Automatic Direction Finder is an all-digital system designed to provide ADF navigation reception from non-directional beacons (NDB), locator outer markers (LOM), and commercial AM broadcast stations. Through microprocessor-controlled signal processing and a self-calibration routine, the DFS 43A system ensures the accuracy of displayed ADF information. The AT-434A combined sense/loop antenna is designed specifically for use with the DF-431B receiver. Streamlined in shape to reduce drag, the antenna provides superior signal reception throughout all modes of DFS 43A system operation. The DF-431B receiver unit can be tuned via ARINC 429 digital data bus by the CDF-552 ADF Control, FMS, the Universal Avionics RCU, or the Series III RMS 555 Radio Management System.
