The microMONITOR... A Multi-Purpose Instrument That Does More Than Act Like a Gauge


Description

The microMONITOR is designed to replace all traditional engine instrumentation in aircraft, resulting in a cost-effective method of saving panel space and weight.

The microMONITOR has 23 different functions including percent power, manifold pressure, tachometer, exhaust gas temperature, cylinder head temperature, oil temperature, carburetor temperature, ammeter, voltmeter, oil pressure, fuel pressure and outside air temperature. An integral turbine-sensor fuel totalizer provides fuel flow, fuel quantity remaining and time to dry tanks.

Using a powerful microprocessor, the unit continuously displays the engine parameters on a custom designed display while at the same time providing advanced computer monitoring of the engine.

The measurements of all critical functions are compared to alarm set points that are adjustable by the user using the front panel controls. Any out-of-limit measurement activates an audio alarm, and the errant reading blinks on the display.

The compact microMonitor also includes a five-function clock with GMT, LMT, timer with two modes and an engine hour meter with reset and accumulative tach time.
