    EI CGR-30P/B/C ANY GOOD

    To clear up any confusion, the Premium version of the CGR-30P always includes RPM, EGT and CHT. You have your choice of five additional primary functions (required instruments with limits/redlines) and five non-primary functions (OAT, carb temp, flight time, etc.) Additionally, we are currently offering a $1000.00 rebate on our CGR-30COMBO package which prices it very attractively.

    EI Engine monitors?

    $1495.00. That basically gets you a brand new display and one-year warranty. The retail price on a new display is $4550.00. If you've got a radial engine, we now have a digital depiction for those, as well. You'll have to forgive the COM errors as I did not have time to set up an emulation.

    You're not going to want to hear about the new MVP upgrade we have planned... J/K! If I can help any further, please let me know.

    It appears some of our friends are not aware of the new MVP-50 display. Roughly two years ago, it was updated to a much higher resolution, SVGA screen. It now appears very similar to our CGR-30P. I've attached a pic if you'd like to have a look.

    I'd perform the three tests I described in my previous post and see what you get. If all three data points are within a couple of degrees of what is expected, it is entirely possible that the JPI was reporting incorrect temperatures. This is not an indictment of JPI's products, the same tests can be performed on their equipment. What type of probes were used with the EDM700? Cylinder well? Spark plug gasket? What type of probes are currently installed with your MVP-50? Different locations will impact temperatures.

    I'm curious where you got your information from. Not criticizing, but I'd appreciate if your could provide the sources of the independent research as I'd like to read it. Regarding accuracy, you can take any of our probes and perform three very easy test that will result in three data points. For example, let's take a look at a CHT probe. Before starting the engine, verify that the CHT is reporting OAT, within a degree or two. This test works better if the aircraft is in a hangar, where the sun cannot influence temp. Second, remove the probe and submerge it in an ice bath (70% ice/30% water). CHT should read 32°F within a degree or two. Lastly, submerge the probe in boiling water. Depending on elevation, you should see a temperature very near 212°F. Probe "accuracy" can depend on many factors, location being the most important. A probe installed in the cylinder well will result in a different temperature from an upper or lower spark plug gasket probe. The upper will typically indicate cooler than the well probe due to engine baffling and the lower spark plug probe will typically indicate hotter due the proximity to the exhaust. Use of fire sleeving can assist with this. EGT probe temperatures are very much dependent on the location of the probe, type of thermocouple used, thickness of the probe, etc. That is why no manufacture specifies EGT limits. While absolute EGT should be considered in normal operation of the engine, temperature relative to peak are more important.

    Hour Meter after JPI upgrade

    Happy to help!

    Hour Meter after JPI upgrade

    Just for reference, our R-1 begins to accrue time at a ratio of 1:1 at 1300 RPM.

    Opinions on engine monitors

    Hi Kris, Please send me a PM with your details and I will do my best to help you. I'd like to get a new EGT probe to you if you have one that is being problematic.

    Show me an Ugly METAR

    Saw this a couple years ago.
  12. To answer a few questions, the CGR-30P does include red and yellow annunciator lights that will illuminate when any primary function violates a corresponding limit. If a change to the configuration needs to be made, the display will not have to be returned to do so. Most of the time, that can be accomplished via e-mail and the CGR's USB port. Additionally, the CGR is flush mounted and does not overlay the panel. As an added bonus, we've just launched a rebate! If interested, have a look at the link below. buy-ei.com/rebate-2018/
