BENDIX/KING KN 63 1.4 UNITS AND ACCESSORIES A complete DME installation requires a KN 63 DME (066-1070-00/01), a KDI 572 master indicator (066-1069-00 or 01) or KDI 574 Master Indicator (066-1069-04), a KA 60/61 antenna, and one or two external control heads (see section 1.3, channeling...
BENDIX/KING KN 63 SECTION II INSTALLATION 2.1 GENERAL INFORMATION This section contains information relative to the installation and wiring of the KN 63 DME, the KDI 572, KDI 573 and KDI 574 Indicators, and the KA 60 Antenna. A close adherence to methods and procedures discussed herein is required.
BENDIX/KING KN 63 bars (047-04218-0001). Secure the mounting rack (047-04219-0001) with the two hold down bars under it using four 8-32 flat head phillips screws (089-05442-0010), four 8-32 hex nuts (089-02015-0037), and four #8 lock washers (089-08111-0034). Install the KN 63 in the mounting rack so the connectors are on the same end as the hold down clamp.
BENDIX/KING KN 63 1. Strip each wire 5/32" for contact terminal (030-01107-0015). (The last two digits of the contact terminal part number indicate the number of terminals furnished). 2. Tin the exposed conductor. 3. Using needle nose pliers, fold over each conductor tab in turn, onto the exposed conductor.
BENDIX/KING KN 63 F. The mounting plate (047-04215-0001) may be used if the indicator is to be installed in a previous panel opening that is too large. G. Secure the indicator in place with four 4-40 flat head phillips screws. If the aircraft panel is 1/16 inch thick or less, use 1/4 inch screws (089-05111-0004).
BENDIX/KING KN 63 H. The antenna should be kept clean. If left dirty (oil covered) the range of the DME may be affected. On pressurized aircraft, the antenna should be sealed using RTV (016-01082- 0000) around the connector and mounting hardware. All antennas should be sealed around the outside for moisture protection using RTV or equivalent.
BENDIX/KING KN 63 SECTION III OPERATION 3.1 GENERAL It is recommended that power to the KN 63 be turned on only after engine start-up, as this proce- dure increases the reliability of the solid state circuitry. The rotary switch on the front of the KDI 572 has four positions: Off, N1, Hold, and N2. In the Off position, the master and slave indicators and the remote mounted DME are all turned off.
BENDIX/KING KN 63 the location and altitude of the ground transmitter, transmitter power output, and the degree of maintenance of the ground facility. The distance measured by the KN 63 is slant-range distance (measured on a slant from aircraft to ground station) and should not be confused with actual ground distance.
