Abstract:

The Bendix AAU 19AA alemeter is a standard 3 inch counter-drum-pointer altimeter which provides two modes of operation -- servoed reset mode and standby mode. In the servoed mode, the altimeter is an electronic repeater of the information received from the CPU-46A altitude computer. The information received by the altimeter has been corrected by the computer for static system error. In the standby mode, the altimeter operates as a normal barometric pressure altimeter. The pilot can select the mode of operation desired by use of the ResetStby switch located on the lower right corner of the instrument case.
