DAC International’s Solution for Tarsyn on the Bell 212/412 Helicopter


If you have issues with your Tarsyn gyro installation, consider replacing the Tarsyn gyros with the proven Northrop Grumman Litef LCR100 fiber optics AHRS. Installation consists of removal of the existing rate gyro, replacement of the Tarsyn VG/DGs with two AHRS and trays, which mount into the existing Tarsyn position and wiring an additional panel annunciator. Advantages of replacing the Bell 212/412 mechanical gyros with the dual LCR-100 AHRS include Fiber Optic Attitude Heading Reference System—no moving parts; a long MTBF (mean time before failure) equals reduced maintenance and cost; the LCR100 has increased accuracy and less weight than the gyros it replaces; simplified one-time flux valve calibration—no compass rose required and it comes with a two-year warranty. The installation is simple with a kit that includes two Tarsyn adapter trays, one rate gyro jumper/annunciator harness, one panel annunciator and a flight manual supplement. Downtime for installation is minimal. Give DAC International a call today at 1-512-331-5323 to discuss replacing or upgrading your Bell 212/412. Or for more information connect with us at
