Pre-Alarm Messages in EDM900, EDM930 & EDM960 Instruments

J.P. Instruments primary EDMs now support pilot configurable pre-alarm messages.  As a specified input channel approaches an alarm limitation, an early warning message will be displayed.  Pre-alarm messages appear in the same format at EDM alarm messages, except that pre-alarm messages are displayed in yellow text, while alarm messages are displayed in red text.
Pre-alarm messages are OFF by default and can be configured individually for each of the channels listed below.  Pre-alarm limits can be set for each of the following channels:
  • High EGT
  • High TIT
  • High CHT
  • High OIL-TEMP
  • Low OIL-TEMP
  • High MAP
  • Low Fuel Tank Level
