Look Inside Your Engine—From the Cockpit! Part 1: InstallationWritten by Charles Lloyd
I thought about adding a full-featured engine monitor to my panel for a long time, but I didn’t make the decision to commit until Insight Instrument Corp.’s G Series graphic engine monitors grabbed my attention at EAA AirVenture 2012.
This monitor series uses a color LCD coupled with a microprocessor to provide a wide range of engine monitor information and diagnostics.
The cost of an engine monitor was part of my reason for waiting all this time—as was my wish for improved engine monitor diagnostics to identify and minimize cylinder over-temp conditions. On the bright side, putting off the decision for so long did allow me to install a leading-edge engine monitor that does more than any other unit on the market today.
