Yes. According to Honeywell Installation Bulletin 502, the PS-578 has the same dimensions, mounting holes, and same connectors as the KFS-578A. Both controls have the same tuning functions however the PS-578 adds the ability to enter the 8 digit aircraft Flight ID. The design of each control differs as well as the internal circuitry. Some capabilities of the KFS-578 requiring part number differences were consolidated into single part numbers in the PS-578. The wiring is identical and no change in plug configuration or system wiring is required.

For operators (usually commercial) whose Flight ID changes frequently, a control head such as Honeywell PS-578 or Collins CTL-92E provide for the entry of the Flight ID. The Flight ID may contain the company-assigned number for that particular flight such as an Airline name and Flight number. For civil operators whose Flight ID (usually the aircraft registration number) whose Flight ID does not change, a control with Flight ID input is not required.
TCAS II is a system used for detecting and tracking aircraft in the area of an aircraft. TCAS interrogates transponders in other aircraft and analyzes the replies to determine range, bearing, and relative altitude (if reporting) of the intruder aircraft. When the TCAS II processor determines that a potential collision hazard exists, it will issue visual and audio advisories to the pilot/copilot for appropriate vertical avoidance maneuvers. TCAS is not able to detect aircraft without an operating ATCRBS transponder (operating in Mode A and C) or a Mode S transponder.
TCAS II utilizes two types of cockpit displays, Resolution Advisory (RA) and Traffic Advisory (TA) display. The RA is incorporated into the vertical speed indicator (VSI). With illuminating red and green arcs around the dial, the VSI displays the required rate, or limitation of climb or descent, to avoid a collision. The TA display shows the intruding aircraft’s relative position and altitude with a trend arrow to indicate if it is climbing or descending greater than 500 feet per minute. The TA display may be presented on compatible weather radar indicator or MFD, dedicated TCAS display or a TA/VSI display. The TA display uses symbols and colors to identify the relative threat of each intruder. Supplementing the displays, TCAS II provides appropriate synthesized voice announcements.
Southeast Aerospace exchanges are based on the return of an undamaged, economically repairable core unit with identical part number as the unit shipped to the customer. An "economically repairable" core is defined as one where the cost to repair/overhaul (or Repair Cap) does not exceed 80% of the original SV/OH exchange price billed. Should the Repair Cap exceed 80%, the customer will be billed the additional amount. In the event this amount exceeds the Outright Price for the unit, the customer would only be billed the difference between the Outright Price and SV/OH Exchange Price with the core returned as-is to the customer.

Here is an example of such a transaction:

$1000 Exchange Price charged to customer
$1000 x .8 = $800 Maximum Allowable core repair charge or Repair Cap

$2000 Cost to repair core unit
- $800 Less Core repair cap
---------
$1200 Additional billing amount.

2200.00 Total Cost of transaction

Please Note:
SEA offers exchange on new items as well. However, repair cap as indicated above is still based on SV/OH exchange price.
