A new engine electronics analyzer for Rotax 912 series engines
has been introduced by the Light Sport Group. Dubbed "Dr. Rotech,"
the device has been designed to assist aircraft mechanics, pilots,
and aircraft owners in troubleshooting the systems of the most
popular line of Rotax engines. Dr RoTech will provide initial and
preliminary troubleshooting information on all the major electrical
system components described in the 912 powertrain maintenance
Troubleshooting electrical problems on the 912 series of engines
previously required the use of a voltmeter and an extensive
knowledge of the aircraft’s electrical system. Dr. Rotech can
plug directly into the ignition module’s connector or can
auto-detect which system you are testing if using the test
lead/probe. Labeled green and red lights indicate which systems are
functioning properly. Systems tested include the Charging Coil,
Trigger/Pick-Up Coils, Primary Ignition Coils, the Ignition Switch,
the Engine Ground, the Stator, and Spark Plug Wires. Dr. Rotech
also offers PC support, allowing users to plug into a computer to
obtain more specific information such as a failure counter for
troubleshooting intermittent problems.
Light Sport Group’s Dr. Rotech will be demonstrated and
available at the Sebring Light Sport Expo January 19-22nd. Visit
Light Sport Group at Booths 319 and 320.
