IFD5xx/4xx Where To Find Unit Serial Number Information

If the IFD is at software release and prior, the serial number can be located in maintenance mode under the Hardware page. The link below will provide instructions on accessing maintenance mode if you are unfamiliar. If the IFD is at software version or later, the serial number can be found in the Software Status page in Flight Mode. Regardless of software level, the serial number is also located on the data plate on the side of the IFD.
