Sebring, FLORIDA / July 15, 2013 - Rotax Aircraft Engines power the overwhelming majority of Light-Sport Aircraft and light kit-built aircraft in the USA and throughout the globe. The Austrian company long term partner TL Elektronic was chosen to supply a Rotax-approved engine monitoring system (EMS) in digital form. Lockwood Aviation Supply announced it has been appointed the U.S. distributor for the Rotax EMS Integra for the new fuel injected Rotax 912iS.
The Rotax EMS (part number 886 859) features a seven-inch color LCD screen that integrates all primary engine instruments including engine tachometer, fuel flow, fuel pressure, exhaust gas temperature, cylinder head temperature, oil and water temperature, fuel level, voltmeter, ammeter, timer, throttle position, ambient air temperature and more.
"With the Rotax brand you can be assured that the unit has been fully tested and approved to work flawlessly with the new CAN bus interface included with the fuel injected Rotax 912iS," said John Hurst, Director of Sales and Technology for Lockwood Aviation Supply.
The unit is pre-configured to display all information that Rotax wants users to see for proper operation of the 912iS. The Integra EMS is delivered with mounting frame, backup battery, manuals, warranty card and connectors set. Optional sensors include fuel pressure (recommended for the 912 iS), ammeter shunt, and fuel level sensors. Suggested retail price for the Rotax Integra is $3,348.00.
"Our customers can now enjoy piece of mind and the superior compatibility provided by a genuine Rotax engine monitoring system to interface with the 912iS integrated computer," added Hurst.
