Engine 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.
Features of EDM 700
Some basic but important features of EDM 700 include
• Accurate trend monitoring is achieved in the normalized mode
• Presence of bus voltage to accurately detect any voltage loss from failure of the alternator
• Troubleshooting can be achieved from the cockpit with the aid of a computer that displays problem codes
• Presence of alphanumeric scanning that displays 29 functions
• 2 different modes – LeanFind mode that searches for the first last of the cylinders to peak and the PeakFind that captures the exhaust gas temperature.
• Programming is easily achieved from the from panel using just two buttons
• Accurate leaning is guaranteed fast prove response
• Temperature: It is displayed in one degree in either Celsius or Fahrenheit
• True memory: data can be downloaded from the EDM onto a laptop or palm computer.
• 29 alarms
• EGT graph has variable scaling
• Fuel flow option
• Shock cooling
• Oil Temperature check
