AvMap announces an innovative service called EngiBOX Portal (engibox.avmap.it) where users can monitor the performance of their engine at any time and anywhere, as an extension of EngiBOX, the engine monitoring system launched last year.
EngiBOX is a compact EMS for ROTAX engines, weighing only 8.8 Oz and fitting in a standard 3 1/8” panel hole, that displays the engine parameters to warn you instantly if any value exceeds the engine limits. With an update rate of five times per second, EngiBOX monitors oil pressure, oil or air temperature, cylinder head or coolant temperature, revolutions per minute, exhaust gas temperature, manifold pressure and Hobbs meter.
ROTAX engines (series 447, 503, 582, 618, 912, 912s and 914) operating limits are preconfigured in the EngiBOX: just select your engine model and the EngiBOX will display the operating range, min and max values, including warning and alarm indications.
EngiBOX stores the engine data log in the internal memory (up to 160 h). You can export engine data via Bluetooth using the free EngiBOX App (for iOS and Android) and invite your favorite Rotax service center to analyze your engine data.
On your EngiBOX Portal account you can analyze the trend graphs of the engine parameters, for each flight. You can share the logs with your Rotax service center to get instant support for regular maintenance or in case of problems. Rotax Service Centers can use the EngiBOX Portal to analyze the engines performance for maintenance and to save the last overhaul date on the device, this way the EngiBOX system benefits both users and service centers. Any Rotax Service Center can join the program, while it’s up to the user to decide which Service Center to share data with. With the addition of the App and Portal, AvMap EngiBOX becomes an integrated system to store, share and analyze engine data.
The European pioneers
AvMap, the Italian manufacturer of avionic instruments, has been a pioneer in the sector of GPS portable solutions for aviation. AvMap made its debut in 1994 with the EKP (electronic knee‐pad), a successful portable flight navigation system sold worldwide. Recently AvMap has expanded its product range beyond portable GPS and panel mounted navigation systems to include a wider range of avionics instruments. “Our goal is to gratify the home-built, experimental and light sport aircraft market, designing innovative avionics instruments that are exceptionally light, reliable and inexpensive.” declared Simone Lazzarini, Director at AvMap. An example is the AvMap Ultra, a stand alone EFIS which includes nine flight instruments in one digital device.
EngiBOX retails at 899 € taxes included. Special promotion for EAA Airventure 2016, valid for purchases till July 31st: get $50 mail in Rebate.
EngiBOX Technical specifications
Dimensions: Fitting standard 3-1/8" panel hole, external frame: 95 x 95 mm
Weight: 250 g (8.8 Oz)
Power Input range: 10-35 VDC
- 4 x Thermocouple (type K and J) for EGT and Cylinder head temperature (can be used in parallel with other measurement instruments)
- 2 x Resistance thermometer (Rotax NTC and PT100) for Air temperature / Coolant temperature
- 1 x Oil Pressure pick-up (Rotax Keller type 4-20 mA and VDO resistive type 10 bar/150 psi)
- 1 x RPM pick-up (can be used in parallel with other measurement instruments, depending on the other instrument capability to measure correctly RPM with a 100 ohm load).
- 1 x INPUT Manifold Pressure (can be used in parallel with other measurement instruments)
N.B. Sensor probes are not included in the box, as EngiBOX is compatible with the same standard sensor supplied by ROTAX, with the exception of the Thermocouple type K or J that need to be purchased in order to measure the EGT and Cylinder head temperature.
EGT, CHT and Manifold pressure sensors can be used in parallel with other measurement instruments. RPM pick-up can also be used in parallel with other measurement instruments, as long as they are capable of correctly measuring the RPM with a 100 ohm load.
