A normal Annunciator Control Unit (ACU) includes a control and relay assembly. The control portion includes lighted annunciations (words) as well as a switch assembly to activate a relay. The relay assembly provides the electrical transfer of information between a conventional nav (VOR/ILS/GS) and GPS to one Course Deviation Indicator (CDI).

The ACU units can be complete with control and relay built into one assembly or they can be separated depending on the part number. Some GPS systems and CDIs include internal relays. Therefore, only a control with switch is required. In this case, you would only purchase the Control Head. Some installations use different custom sizes and styles of annunciator switches. Therefore, in this case, only a remote relay is purchased without a control assembly.


In addition to variations in switches, relays, and sizes, ACUs are engineered to be compatible with specific GPS systems by different manufacturers. Variations in power input and bezel orientation are available as well.
For IFR GPS approach certification, GPS status annunciations are required to be in the pilot's field of view. These annunciations (or lights) indicate active switches such as the NAV/GPS and OBS (if applicable) modes. Other annunciations or alerts might include the following:

TERM - light that will signal pilot when operating within 30 miles of departure or arrival airport (i.e. Terminal area)
APR - light that signals pilot when the GPS is engaged in Approach mode
MSG - light that signals pilot that the GPS has generated a Message alert that should be viewed on the GPS
WPT - light that signals pilot that the GPS has generated a Waypoint alert that should be viewed on the GPS
INTG - light that will signal pilot when the GPS receiver detects a position error or is unable to calculate the Integrity of the position

Some annunciator units and annunciator control units or ACUs have a variety a these switches and annunciators depending on the GPS system to be interfaced with or the aircraft installation. However, there are certain annunciations such as MSG and WPT that are standard for all annunciators required.
