Time For Testing

This was a fairly basic installation for Avionics West, just a center stack of radios, no custom panels, autopilot, weather or other boxes at this time.  We didn't get any pics of the harness build-up due to the fact most of that happened over the Christmas HolidaysEquipment being Tested. The shot you see here is one of the techs burning in the equipment and alignment.  Normally we apply power to the equipment for a day or so, then align the equipment and complete all the set up procedures. Normally if something is going to fail, it will fail during our burn-in period.  With modern avionics such as you see here, "Out of Box" failures are very rare, this wasn't true in the old days, I'm glad those days are gone!  Notice there's plenty of room in the radio stack to add equipment in the future should the owner decide to do so.  Also, there's a huge space above the co-pilots yoke and several holes in the pilot's panel to add equipment in the future.  Seldom do we have such a luxury.  The avionics installed here will put this Cessna T210 into the next generation.  I'd be willing to bet in a short period of time the owner will have a desire to fill those empty holes in the panel...
