There is no difference between these 2 models referenced in various Honeywell publications. The PS-578A is referenced in the installation manuals for the CAS-67A TCAS and MST-67A Transponder. The dataplate for the control also indicates PS-578A. Some Honeywell paperwork for the control references only PS-578 for some reason.

Most Mode S transponders such as the Honeywell MST-67A and Collins TDR-94D include a feature that allows it to automatically determine the aircraft Registration Number (Tail Number) of U.S. registered (N numbered) aircraft. If the aircraft is U.S. registered and operated where the tail number is used as the call sign (Flight ID), then the operator does not have to manually enter the Flight ID. Therefore, a control head with Flight ID input such as the Honeywell PS-578 or Collins CTL-92E is not required.

The transponder automatically reads the Mode S address assigned to the aircraft. If the Mode S address falls within the range of addresses assigned to the U.S. by the International Civil Aeronautics Organization (ICAO), the MST-67A will automatically convert that Mode S address to the tail number of the aircraft and place it in the Flight ID register for compliance with Elementary Surveillance.

If the aircraft is operated where the Flight ID is not the tail number or the aircraft is not registered in the U.S., then a Flight ID control head is required to allow for manual entry of Flight ID. The flight ID may contain the company-assigned number for that particular flight such as an Airline name and Flight number.

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.
