    How Reliable is JPI EDM900?

    Sent you a PM, Brian.

    How Reliable is JPI EDM900?

    I apologize for any confusion as the above question is what I was answering. If installing EI equipment, the JPI EGT/CHT probes and wiring can be used as our STC does not call out specific part numbers.

    How Reliable is JPI EDM900?

    Rumor has it, and I've got it on pretty good authority that a rebate will be offered, beginning this Friday. $1000.00 on a CGR-30-COMBO package, $1200.00 on a CGR-30-COMBO Upgrade pacakge (trading in your existing monitor) and $500.00 on the MVP-50. While we do not have an upgrade package for the MVP-50, anyone interested can PM me and we can discuss options as to not hijack this thread.

    Actually, that is not the case. If interested in trading in your existing JPI, or other manufacture's engine monitor and installing our CGR-30P, we can absolutely use the existing probes and harnesses and we'll even build an adapter cable to save quite a bit of labor.

    Worth noting, there is very little additional labor/difficulty installing the companion gauge as you will typically have multiple available locations from removing existing instrumentation as the CGRs fit in an existing 3-1/8" hole and are flush mounted. Additionally, all of the probes and transducers connect to the EDC and the EDC's RS232 signal can be split to the CGR- 30P and CGR- 30C. As such, I would guess maybe an extra hour in labor to physically install the gauge and make the power, ground, backlight and RS232 connections.

    100 low lead prices

    Not too fun in Oregon.

    Is a primary EGT required?

    You are most welcome! Dewey, Randy and the crew know our stuff well and can certainly help you out.

    Part of the upgrade package is to build conversion harnesses from the existing monitor's cabling, whether it be E.I, JPI, Insight, etc, to interface with our system. Worth noting, the Basic version of the CGR-30P does not typically include manifold pressure, however, I'd be happy to go to bat for you and see if there is something custom we could do for you.

    Is a primary EGT required?

    If you are at all interested in upgrading from the EDM-711 to our CGR-30P, we have an upgrade path available that will save quite a bit of money and labor as the upgrade utilizes the existing CHT/EGT probes and cables. If you are not interested in replacing existing gauges, I would suggest our CGR-30P Basic with includes RPM, EGT, CHT (can be primary), fuel flow, OAT and volts. Please PM me for details or send me an e-mail at support@buy-ei.com. We may be able to offer additional discounts as we are looking for willing aircraft owners to assist in the launch of these new upgrade packages.

    I see where you would find that confusing and I appreciate you bringing that to my attention. I will forward it to management for their evaluation. Just to reiterate, you do NOT need to be a certified mechanic or FAA certified repair shop to use the 00200 password. That password is always included with all of our certified systems.

    Is a primary EGT required?

    I don't believe there is an aircraft manufactured with a required primary EGT gauge. TIT, sure. Some manufactures have mistakenly labeled a TIT probe EGT, but it's not monitoring a single cylinder's temp, it's monitoring the temp at the collector, just before the turbo. There are far too many factors that can affect absolute EGT temperatures. Type of probe, thickness of the material used and the installed distance from the cylinder to name a few. As such, absolute temperature is not nearly as important as the temp relative to peak.

    If you could point to a specific page in the installation instructions, I will be happy to take a look at it.

    You do not need to be a certified mechanic or FAA approved shop to qualify for the maintenance password or level 2 password. The standard 00200 password (as each certified system leaves our facility) will allow the user to calibrate horsepower, calibrate fuel tanks, enter tach and engine time, configure COM ports (GPS interface) and adjust the brightness of the display. Deeper levels of programming, such as primary function redlines and screen locations are protected by a one-time use, level 2 password which must be generated at our facility. We can issue this password to anybody having POH justification or an STC supplement for the requested changes. We typically will assist over the phone to ensure that changes are made correctly. The FAA does mandate that primary functions monitored on our system that are replacing analog instrumentation match the existing instrument's markings or POH markings/limitations.
