Installation of Engine Data Management 700 (EDM 700) System in Aircraft

Engine Data Management 700Having acquired the Aircraft Engine Data Management System 700 (EDM 700), it goes without saying, that this awesome piece of equipment needs to be carefully handled and installed.

While the JPI warranty at the back of the instruction manual clearly states that JPI will replace defective parts under warranty, it does not cover mishandling or defective installation.

Care to be taken while installing the JPI EDM 700:

1. The JPI Aircraft Engine Data Management System 700 is packaged along with 4 screws. While fixing these screws, care should be taken to ensure that the four mounting screws should not penetrate the instrument more than 0.12 inches.

2. The person installing the EDM 700 must be a FAA certified aircraft mechanic. While we are sure there are many Do-it-Yourself pilots and aircraft owners out there, the installation of the Aircraft Engine Data Management System 700 is best handled by an officially (FAA) certified person who knows what he (or she) is doing.

3. Before installing the EDM 700, the mechanic should check if there are any STC (FAA approvals) available for the aircraft.

4. While installing the EDM 700, care should be taken to crimp ring terminals with a good crimping tool (e.g. AMP part 45518) crimp tool or equivalent.

a. Ideal procedure is to fold back the wire double before crimping terminals – about 1/4″ 1 1/2″
b. Fold back wire double before crimping terminals 2 1/4″ of Thermocouple wire harness red and yellow

5. Installation of the EDM 700 will require some parts that are likely to be unique to your make and model of aircraft hence these are not part of the EDM 700 kit. The instruction manual will guide the mechanic as to the parts that will be required. All necessary parts should be acquired prior to the installation.

6. While acquiring parts, care should be taken to not buy/use any aluminium fittings with the FXT-201 or FXT-231 Fuel Flow Transducer.

7. Before installation note the K-factor engraved on the side of the fuel flow transducer.

8. Carefully select and mark the location of all the holes before drilling ensuring that nothing will interfere with the wires, probes, clamps and screws.

9. It is a good idea to provide service loops at the instrument – this will come in handy during future maintenance work.

10. Provide service loops for thermocouple wire too as it will allow you to swap probes on adjacent cylinders for future troubleshooting purposes.

11. Ensure all wires are kept away from high temperature components such as exhaust stacks.

12. Thermocouple wire should not be spliced using copper wire. Only K-type thermocouple wire.

13. Solder using zinc chloride flux such as Nokorode brand – rosin flux alone won’t work.

14. When connecting wires to probes, ensure correct polarity.

15. This instrument must be grounded at the engine, not at the avionics ground.

What Are The Features And Specifications Of EDM 700?

EDM 700Engine data management 700 which can simply be referred to as EDM 700 is a necessary addition to any aircraft. It works by continually monitoring the engine activities of the aircraft thus, leaving the pilot to fully concentrate on flying and landing the aircraft safely. With the help of the latest microprocessor technology, a total of 24 critical parameters are monitored 4 times a second which is more than can be done by the pilot.

The EDM 700 system is also able to instantly give warning when programmed limits are exceeded. This is possible because it is equipped with an up to date warning system. It is the most accurate, advanced engine monitoring system in the world that gives assistance in all engine related areas to ensure that the operations of the aircraft run smoothly.

Do away with your fuel related anxiety with our FS-450 Fuel Totalizer.

Fuel Scan 450Better the mileage, longer the distance you can fly and consequently, greater the pleasure. Ever since the Wright brothers first flew their plane, figuring out maximum range for your aircraft has always been guesswork. Between then and now science and technology has made such strides that one would have thought that designing an instrument that helps calculate your fuel consumption and consequently the range, would have been a breeze.

It is not just calculating the range before the actual flight that is the problem; during flight too there can be lots of unexpected factors that result in higher fuel consumption. So what is your new range? Looking at the fuel gauges with their bouncing needles that bob in synch with the floats in the two wing tanks is not exactly helpful.

Well, guess what, the long wait for an instrument that provides you with precise fuel consumption data is over. J.P. Instruments of Huntington Beach, California, USA, has designed just such an instrument. It is called the FS-450 Fuel Totalizer.

Pilots who have installed the instrument swear that the FS-450 fuel totalizer relegates fuel-situation anxieties to aircraft history. It constantly displays your aircraft’s current fuel-consumption on the top of two bright LED displays and that’s not all it does.

The FS-450 fuel totalizer also displays total fuel consumption since engine start, how much is left in the tanks and how long it would last at current setting. As if that were not enough, it also displays the quantum of fuel needed to reach your next waypoint and how much fuel would remain at the point and also, the fuel efficiency of your aircraft (GPS connection required).

Yup, the FS-450 fuel totalizer can hook-up with your Skymap or most other GPS systems. When connected to a Twin Engine Mgmt Systems, the FS-450 manufactured by JP Instrument will calculate fuel to waypoint, reserve at waypoint and Nautical Miles per Gallon. At the price of fancy GPS nav and weighting at less than half-pound, this instrument is definitely worth adding to your aircraft’s instrument cluster.
