This is only performed if TAD is enabled, high integrity
terrain and position data is available (based on GPS/
Geometric Altitude), and the Computed Terrain Clearance is
greater than 4000 feet (2500 feet with version -218-218 or
later). This feature reduces the potential for nuisance alerts
caused by false tracking of the Radio Altimeter.

signal/status input, and control input functions.
EGPWS program pins are utilized to tell the system the type
of aircraft and interface that it is in. These are defined and
established during the EGPWS installation. EGPWS output
functions are consequently the result of the program pin state
read each time the EGPWS is powered on.
Signal/status discretes include signals such as Decision
Height, Landing Flaps selected or Flap Position discretes,
Landing Gear selected, Terrain Display Range, and status
discretes such as Glideslope Valid, Localizer Valid, Radio
Altitude Valid associated with analog signal inputs.
Control discretes control EGPWS functions. These include
EGPWS Test, Glideslope Cancel, Glideslope Inhibit or
Glideslope Backcourse, Terrain (display) select, Terrain Inhibit,
Flap Override, Audio Inhibit, Altitude Callout Enable, Steep
Approach Enable, and ILS Tuned discretes.
