EMS Now Approved For Socatas, Mooneys, Grummans, And
The Federal Aviation Administration recently granted approval to
New York-based Xerion Avionix LLC for installation of the AuRACLE
CRM series Engine Management Systems into all 4 & 6-cylinder
Mooney, Grumman, Rockwell Commander, Socata, and Extra
"This new Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) continues the
successful launch of the AuRACLE product line; allowing more pilots
to properly manage engine information, resulting in significant
improvements in fuel management and engine operations thereby
avoiding potentially devastating in-flight engine failures" says
Xerion's Eric Hathaway.
Xerion AuRACLE CRM series monitors are actively being installed
in Beechcraft, Piper and Cessna aircraft for which Xerion received
FAA approval during 2008.
"These additional approvals provide the owners and pilots of
these aircraft a complete overview of up-to-the-second engine data
with a state-of-the-art fuel computer, significantly reducing the
pilot workload thus increasing safety and reducing engine
maintenance costs," continued Hathaway.
"The AuRACLE CRM series Engine Management System is now
certified for primary use in over 95% of the single-engine aircraft
worldwide. This is a significant milestone for the advancement of
GA engine safety and substantial accomplishment for a relatively
new company to accomplish in such a short period."
The FAA approval allows the AuRACLE to serve as primary
instrumentation, replacing the aircraft's legacy engine 'steam'
gages. Additionally, the system employs a unique Engine Interface
Unit installed on the engine-side of the firewall, reducing engine
instrumentation firewall penetrations to one single, more
streamlined cannon-style bulkhead connector.
The AuRACLE operates with both four- and six-cylinder engines.
The single 5.0 inch high definition, sunlight readable color screen
can be configured to display any and all information required by an
individual aircraft, including RPM, MAP, FF, oil temperature, oil
pressure, CHT, EGT, percentage of horsepower, voltage/amperage,
vacuum pressure, OAT, TIT, carburetor temperature, fuel pressure,
induction air temperature, compressor discharge temperature, tach
time and GPS interface.
Xerion is currently working through certification of the
recently announced CRM2120 for twin-engine aircraft.
