We need a new engine monitor for our PA-32RT-300T. We currently have 2 stock (unreliable) Piper analog monitors and an old school JPI scanner that just gives EGTs, TIT and 1 CHT. We would prefer a new unit that gives us all 6 CHT’s, EGT’s, TIT and oil temp.
It looks like JPI and Insight are the leaders but wanted to get some input from some fellow flyers.
I’m getting pricing on the new JPI-830 right now. Don’t be afraid, it mounts in a round hole without cutting the panel and it can be mounted in any of four positions. If you currently have JPI products in you plane the sensors can be used. If you already have an 800, upgrading to an 830 is cheap and easy.
have had a gemini 1200 for almost 15 yrs in C340. It has about 1400 hrs on it 90 % of the probs are the same ones installed new, I think most that were replaced were due to a dumb a## a&p breaking the lead etc It has been a GREAT product, it logs all readings.It is the last thing I look at before v2/vR as a ENG CK
