The EICommander provides a pilot flying with the P-mag electronic ignition from Emag Electronic Ignitions the ability to monitor the condition of their ignition, adjust the ignition in flight to suit fuel and flight requirements, and minimize fuel consumption while reducing emissions.
With the ability to notify the pilot of a failed ignition component, such as a broken spark plug wire, miss-timed ignition, or worn magneto gear, the EICommander is to your ignition system what an EMS is to your engine. Since the EICommander has been in use, it has alerted users to anomalous ignition conditions, which could have led to problems, if left undetected and uncorrected.
The EICommander comes in two formats, both with sunlight readable organic LED displays: a round 2-1/4-inch (5.715 cm) bezel which fits a standard instrument hole and a 3-inch- (75 cm) wide-by-1-9/16-inch- (4 cm) wide rectangular EFIS display format that is more common in today’s modern instrument panel. At less than 3 ounces installed, the EICommander is a weight penalty that any safety-conscious pilot will accept.
