In relation to NE (New) parts, many OEMs change their prices and availability without any notice to dealers or the industry. Therefore, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication, we ask that customers contact us for the most accurate price and availability.

In relation to SV & OH parts, the used parts aftermarket in the aviation industry is not an infinite supply. It is a dynamic, constantly changing market that is significantly affected by and susceptible to highs and lows in supply and demand. Therefore, although we attempt to, at times, we are unable to predict the exact moment when an item may be available. Once again, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication on our website, we ask that customers contact us for the most current and accurate price and availability.

Weather radar transceivers use a magnetron which is basically a cathode emission device. The magnetron is subject to deteriorization due to aging. Therefore, it is recommended to perform some type of periodic maintenance to detect and correct the effects of aging. This reduces the chance of an in-service failure.

An annual, routine test of the following parameters should made:

- Power output
- Transmitter frequency
- AFC voltage
- Sensitivity (MDS)

Ideally, the test should take place between December and March prior to the peak thunderstorm season.
No, the output voltage from the RT-3001 is more than the DI-2007 indicator can handle and will cause expensive, unrepairable damage to the unit. This information is outlined in Sperry technical letter 23-1986-01.

The Primus 300 Slimline system consists of the DI-2007 indicator, RT-3002 receiver/transmitter, and AP-3001 antenna pedestal.
As of January 2010, the only Multi Function Displays that are compatible with the Primus 300 or Primus 400 radar systems are the Honeywell MFRD and the Universal MFD-640. For pricing and additional information on these MFDs, please submit an RFQ to SEA today.
