Cabin heating is achieved by mixing ram air with engine bleed air in variable proportions for temperature control.
The cabin ventilating system consists of ram air inlet, a booster fan, and two fresh air nozzles under the instrument panel.
Electrical power is provided by a 28 V DC negative ground system. The system incorporates a generator busbar, a battery busbar, and electrical hotbus bar.
The primary source of power is a 28 V DC, 200 A engine driven starter/generator.
|Fuel System||Fuel is
contained in two integral fuel tanks with a total usable capacity of 174 US
gallons. The fuel quantity/fuel flow indicator is located on the main
instrument panel, along with the other engine instrumentation.
Two auxiliary fuel tanks with a capacity of 64 gallons each may be added via the Load Manager.
|Ice Protection||Ice protection
consists of an electrical heating system for the pitot tube, static ports,
and the fuel control unit. Prop heating elements are also provided.
The deice controls are located directly underneath the ECS controls. See the ECS checklist.
|Indicating and Warning System||A central
warning system provides indicators for emergency conditions. These are
located on the main annunciator panel, directly underneath the engine
instruments. See the Panel instructions.
Additionally, master caution and warning indicators will illuminate when critical situations occur. See the Panel instructions.
