We are happy to announce our latest product; a PMag Electronic Ignition Controller with Wi-Fi interface so any device such as iPhone, Android phones, iPads, Laptop or PCs can connect to it and view/edit any PMag Settings.
It also offered up to 4-channel Analog Output per PMag to view these data LIVE on a Glass Panel. Checkout on the product page. Now offered with special Launch pricing for July shipping.
We are glad to announce the arrival of our unique Audio/Vocal Alert System. Use your own voice alerts, settings, rules, and triggers using airspeed or dedicated trigger timer/stopwatch. Check out the product page for full details.
We are excited about our latest product; The Landing Height Controller. This device announces your height while landing down to 1 feet. Watch the video. Also, within the same video, we showed the Landing Gear Safety controller auto-extend the landing gear during test on downwind. Enjoy.
I know we did not post any update about our new products recently but it’s really because we have been doing significant testing.
Finally, we are at the last stage and we are just waiting for some stock now.
Three new products will be available online soon.
Of course Engine Bridge EI for the E-Mag modules now completed over 200 hours of combined flying.
The cooling shroud is working perfectly. Temps are never above 140 degrees even at wide open throttle.
Stay tuned. And thanks for the emails coming in asking when the product will be ready.
UPDATE: Unit fully operational and available for sale. https://www.enginebridge.com/product/engine-bridge-ei/
If you are flying with Dynon EMS or G3X or MGL, or any other EMS/EFIS that accept 0-5V Analog Input to show on the Glass Panel, ask us how to get All PMags data into your Glass panel using Analog.
Even though the testing and trials for the first batch of Engine Bridge EI (for E-Mag Ignitions) Module are very successful; still, it was decided we fabricate V2 of the Module and offer that new updated hardware for sale rather than the current unit.
The feedback we received from first batch of customers are great. Only a minor issue to allow one TACH signal to be sent to Dynon EFIS if our unit is capturing both TACH signals for shift deviation.
I know we have received some emails asking when the unit will be offered for sale; as soon as we get our V2 fabricated and checked.
The iPad App already been approved by Apple to be listed and we will have it up and running in the App store shortly just once we stock our units.
Do please send us an email to Sales ‘at’ EngineBridge.com if you have any question or would like more information about our products.
Finally, we managed to stop adding features to the iPad app and sent it to the App Store Review Team. Engine Bridge EI iPad app received approval to be listed on the store and going to be active within days.
Some update and news:
- It was decided to put a price tag of $1.99 for the iOS application. However, a $2 discount will be automatically applied on any purchase of the hardware. Main reason is resource allocation also to be able to support the application to customers who bought the hardware.
- Hardware unit now includes a panel mounted LED; installation the LED is optional. Module alerts pilots to shift in both TACH signals (if using Two E-Mags and both TACH signals are connected to the module). Also, a 10 sec LED Flash can be enabled to alert every 5,10,15,20,30 min, continuously without having to manually reset the timer, this can be used for Fuel Tank change reminder and so on.
- More features added…… Check the Module page and App store within days.
We installed the poor man’s cooling shroud on a Lancair 360. We had to sand those ridges on the outside as they interfere with the clips securing the ignition to the accessory case. Other than that, they seem to work nicely.
This is a progress post about our iPad App and modules.
We have added OTA (Over the Air) Firmware update for our hardware modules. Current release of the hardware will include this feature.
This allows full firmware update via our iPad app without the need to remove or access the unit and this also paves the way to start sending out modules to customers even though we are still testing and getting feedback for adding features; as all can be added to our modules OTA.
We believe that cooling your E-Mag should be done aggressively and that will help in most (if not all) issues people been reporting.
Having a blast tube is great but we wanted to try a cooling shroud so we set out to create one using Fiberglass.
The initial plan was to create a two parts mold first but after we actually created a sample, we liked it so much that we want to test it first as this shroud probably will do the job for under $3! The photos speak for themselves. The plastic JB weld was something we found in the cabinet, a little bit of sanding would make it fine, but probably next sample we use something thinner.
We should put our new cooling shroud to the test soon in our experimental Lancair. If you do try one yourself, leave us a comment what you think. Though you may need a way to find out if the temperature is less after using one. We will be using our iPad App and Engine Bridge hardware to compare before and after.
So, without further due, here are the steps in full colors $3 Cooling Shroud
