The advantages of digital engine indication systems (EIS) go far beyond replacing an aging system in your airplane. These modern, trusted options can offer significant enhancements over older, maintenance-prone analog instruments. They also can provide crucial engine and fuel info with boosted precision. Structured display screens with instinctive interface can help in reducing pilot workload, enhance engine and fuel management, and add overall confidence in the cockpit. Our broad variety of EIS options were designed with these principles in mind. From our compact GI 275 EIS to our bigger format EIS TXi and G3X Touch ™, we have an EIS option for almost every aircraft type and operator spending plan.
GI 275 EIS: Convenient size, effective capabilities
Created to fit a basic 3-1/8″ instrument cutout, this stand-alone touchscreen option provides engine, fuel, electrical information and more in a hassle-free, economical bundle. It graphically shows cylinder head and exhaust gas temperature levels, functions lean help mode, and monitors fuel amount and fuel flow to estimate how much fuel, variety and flight time remains.

EIS TXi: Larger display screen, more comprehensive airplane applicability
Searching for more display realty to keep an eye on engines and fuel? Our devoted EIS TXi presents the very same essential engine, fuel and electrical details as the GI 275 EIS however with a couple of more features on a larger touchscreen format– available in 7″ landscape or 7″ portrait alternatives. Its offered for many normally aspirated or turbocharged Lycoming/Continental 4- to 6-cylinder songs and twins, in addition to select single engine turboprop aircraft.

For turboprop operators, EIS TXi can show dynamic gauge range markings for torque, prop RPM, Ng percent, interstage turbine temperature level and more. Automatic, color-coded data bands based on the aircrafts existing condition will brighten, with automatic timers and exceedance warnings prompting visual hints to flash, highlighting each out-of-limit criterion.
Integrate EIS with PFD, MFD on G500/G600 TXi, G3X Touch.
Some pilots choose a panel design with more combination and less displays. Our G500/G600 TXi and G3X Touch flight displays can integrate EIS info with PFD and MFD abilities in several sizes and configurations, providing an “all-in-one” flight display screen service.
For panel upgrades with space for more than one display screen, both the TXi and G3X Touch series use a stand-alone EIS/MFD mix. In this layout, offered for single-engine piston airplane, the EIS indicators can be seen in either a broadened format or a condensed strip on the touchscreen, permitting pilots to see MFD information next to the engine information. The opportunities TXi and G3X Touch deal to integrate allow expanded flexibility and performance in individual screens.

Adjustable exceedance signaling and engine performance information logging.
Predefined and pilot-selectable exceedance signaling comes requirement with GI 275 EIS, EIS-capable TXi and G3X Touch flight displays. During installation, predefined limitations are set for engine temperatures, oil pressure and more. After the set up is finished, pilot-selectable alerts can be configured by operators to supply an extra level of security. These pilot-selectable alerts are meant to indicate the pilot before an exceedance is reached. Both pilot-selectable and predefined alerts timely flashing hints, assisting to recognize possible out-of-limit exceedances and keep long-lasting engine efficiency and overall health.
These EIS solutions can instantly log engine performance information for post-flight analysis. With the EIS-capable GI 275, information is instantly logged within the instrument, then can be wirelessly transferred to a suitable mobile gadget downloaded with the Garmin Pilot ™ app. Our G3X Touch displays log information to an SD ™ card set up in the screen, which can be manually submitted to flyGarmin.com or wirelessly transmitted to Garmin Pilot. EIS-equipped TXi displays automatically log engine data within the screen too, and a Flight Stream 510 (sold separately) can wirelessly transmit EIS information to Garmin Pilot. Engine performance information can be wirelessly sent to and showed on Garmin Pilot in-flight. After landing, and engine information is sent to Garmin Pilot, it is automatically submitted to flyGarmin.com and available for post-flight evaluation. All details in flyGarmin.com is saved firmly within our web-based cloud service.
Garmin Pilot can show real-time engine data logging, which can be evaluated after landing.
