Because Owning And Flying Your Beechcraft Can Be Done Safely AND For Less Money!
  JPI EDM-760 Engine Monitor



The JPI EDM Engine Monitors are not a CSOB priced item, but I believe they pay for themselves in fuel savings and engine diagnostics!



Get the Fuel Flow option and oil temp probes installed and connect the EDM 760 to your GPS and know your instantaneous NM/gal and Fuel Remaining at Destination


Psst....see that fuel flow, yeah, I'm running Lean of Peak at 10,000' with a TAS of about 162KTAS. Want to read more? Click HERE for my settings or click the picture above and read the photo caption info.



Here is another little tidbit submitted to by a Beech owner contributor, as regards a fuel flow transducer for a very popular digital fuel flow instrument. He found that the $210 Flowscan #201A-6 was the same one used by his instrument manufacturer who wanted $650 for their replacement part.



Here are additional comments from this contributor:


"the Floscan 201-B6 is rated up to 60 gph, while the -A6 is rated for 30 - either would work for my plane. However, the -B6 is made in a range of K factors closer to the original 201 provided by Shadin, so I ordered it instead.  I installed it using the original Shadin metal box, fire protection, and mounting... a perfect fit. Flew the plane today, works fine. My K-factor was 28,600, and is now 29,750 - just 4% difference. This was easily programmed into the Shadin using their instructions HERE"

As always, consult your A&P/IA for their assessment on the airworthiness of any part equivalencies and substitutions.



Fuel Exhaustion is So "Old School"!





I would install Fuel Flow linked to my GPS before I bought wiz bang GPSS or WAAS stuff, but that's just me. After all, one of the biggest causes of engine stoppages is fuel mis-management. I am regularly within a gallon of my JPI indicated fuel consumed on 100 gallon top offs. This kind of fuel consumed accuracy makes fuel management and situational awareness on long distance trips where deviations for weather or headwinds, a virtual breeze.


Additionally, if your engine ever had a runability issue, the data download of the EDM760 can be downloaded and sent to any number of engine experts for analysis. This could greatly shorten your engine troubleshooting time.

Here's a helpful article by Mike Busch: "Interpreting Your Engine Monitor" just register with Avweb to view it, it's CSOB free!



Here's Beech Lister, Mike T's, analog (digital internals) fuel flow backup gauge.



It's a 1.25"  UMA gauge P/N N20-11F0-3500, Mike spoke with UMA to get a custom built gauge to be compatible with the Floscan 201B-6 transducer and a custom face for 35gph to supplement his EDM 700. Mike reports a cost of $155 plus shipping back in August 2006, when he ordered the gauge.


He likes it because it is helpful to him during takeoff and The Big Pull to LOP operations. The EDM 700 and the UMA share the same transducer. Installation was easy, since UMA included a sketch showing how to wire it to share the JPI transducer and they also included the proper diode to prevent crosstalk with the JPI.


This lets Mike monitor his EGTs in the climb on the EDM700 while at the same time monitoring an accurate analog fuel flow display.


Sounds like a great gauge company to work with. See the UMA website HERE
