The ProSimA320 MCDU module simulates a Master Control Display Unit that comprises of a small display accompanied by a keypad used to interact with the Flight Management System (FMS). Each unit independently displays and controls data.
On startup of the ProSimA320 MCDU module, a fully interactive MCDU is displayed and controlled by keyboard and mouse. Inclusive of the ProSimA320 MCDU module, a web based MCDU is also offered as an alternative to MCDU hardware, and runs on any handheld device connected to the network.
The ProSimA320 MCDU module does not include FMS logic, merely a device that communicates with the FMS contained in the ProSimA320 System module. Network communication makes it possible to run the module outside of the cockpit environment at any location that can access the ProSimA320 System module.
The module contains drivers to communicate directly with hardware MCDU’s from most manufacturers.
