The ASG Constant Friction Mounts (cfMount™) are the best in the aviation industry for EFB mounting solutions. It was designed in 2003, and later installed in 2005 as part of the first commercially used Class 2 EFB on a Miami Air B737NG.
The cfMount™ was designed and Patented for use to install an EFB device onto an aircraft window frame structure. The window’s frame structure offers the most logical location based on the pilot’s viewing angle and because of its solid structure. Because not all aircraft window frame are the same, we’ve designed three (3) variances of our innovative cfMount™, to suit your aircraft’s window frame.
The swivel mount comprises of a mount member that has a top face and a bottom face. Portions of the plates are configured to engage portions of a mounting surface within the cockpit of an Aircraft. The mount is designed where frictional contact is constant with portions of the respective mount base and containment member. This allows freedom of movement without loosening or tightening the mount manually and allows the Pilot the best viewing angle.
Visibility was the key in positioning the Electronic Flight Bag Display in this location, this allows the Pilot to not have an obstructed view thru the window during taxiing, and any critical phase of flight. Due to the mount’s designed being constant friction the Pilot is able to change the viewing angle during Aircraft maneuvers due to glare on the display with one hand while keeping control of the Aircraft with the other hand. No levers, adjustment screws, or pressure switches are used to change the viewing angle of the EFB. An effortless one handed movement is used at one of the corners of the EFB is all you need to change your viewing angle, making the cfMount™ the easiest to use for Aviation.
It is affordable, DO160 Tested, extremely low maintenance, versatile, proven. The cfMount™ has been actively in-service since 2005 on a commercially flown B737NG. Other factors are its simplistic design that allows the user to quickly adjust the EFB to suit their preferred viewing angle, using only one hand. Once in place just let go and you’re done, the cfMount will stay in-place until you move it again.
The most popular mount, used on many of today’s single aisle and Regional aircraft models. This model continues to lead the best of class for performance and reliability. Use in: Boeing B737, B757, Embraer (All Models), Bombardier (All Models), Lockheed L382.
