An interesting piece of equipment on the 777's that i never knew existed. What is the 'Engineering console used for? And do other aircrafts have this device?

Only the B777 have this device. It's called the maintenance panel. It's a system used to check if everything is working correctly such as GPS, radios.. etc.

That is what is called the MAT (Maintenance Access Terminal). Just about all maintenance tests are done from this panel. I understand that the B747-400 also has a MAT, so this is not new technology.

OK, thanks for the replies. Really. i thought it looked like something out of the USS enterprise! Big grin

But since the 777 is a new breed of an airliner, i suppose it's no suprise. Never knew 744 had it also/

The good ol C-5 has a similar system. It has changed quite a bit over the years, I imagine the 777 system is MUCH improved over what the C-5 has. The C-5 has MADARS (malfunction analysis detection and recording system). Pretty much hated by all that touch the system!

The A330/340 has the Central Maintanence System and the 320s have the Centralized Fault Display System. It works pretty much the same way, integrating fault and test access, but its accessed through the pilots' MCDUs.

Anyone know what sort of power source it runs on, a microprocessor or a chip of some kind? The graphics on the screen look familiar.

The 777's primary computers are custom-programmed in ADA and run on Intel, AMD and Motorola microprocessors (for redundancy and attackproofing).
