The EDM 790 system is the most advanced and accurate twin piston engine-monitoring instrument on the market. TSO’d for quality, the EDM 790 is not just another black box along for the ride. It is a Flight Engineer … a Maintenance Manager … For the price there is nothing that gets close to it. You can almost think of the EDM 790 as your personal flight engineer. It’s always there, working in the background, constantly watching over your engine while you concentrate on flying the aircraft. You can make an entire flight without ever pushing a button, if you so choose. Yet your EDM will be monitoring your engine parameters three times a second and will warn you instantly if any parameter exceeds the programmed limit.

JPI’s EDM-760 provides two methods of leaning: lean rich of peak (LEAN R) or lean of peak (LEAN L). With the advent of GAMI injector’s it is now possible to set the mixture lean of peak—saving fuel with a cooler running engine . The EDM 760 displays an inverted peak graph. Teledyne Continental has recommended 50ºF lean of peak for the Malibu.
Leaning Rich of Peak:
Upon reaching cruise configuration, you can use the LF, LeanFind™ mode to identify the first cylinder to reach peak EGT. After cruise power has been established, pre-lean the mixture to about 50° rich of peak. Tap the LF, LeanFind™ button and simply lean. As you begin to lean the mixture, the EDM will check all cylinders using a proprietary algorithm looking for the first cylinder to achieve peak EGT. Do not lean slowly as required by other instruments. Lean aggressively and continuously as you normally do. The EDM will indicate success in finding a peak by displaying the words LEANEST for two seconds, followed by a flashing the column and displaying the value of the EGT of the cylinder that peaked first. The word SET will also be displayed. (With the Fuel Flow Option the current fuel flow rate will be displayed on the right side of the digital display instead of the word SET.) The flashing cylinder will be locked—or set—into the digital display during the remainder of the LeanFind procedure to allow you to set the final mixture. The peak EGT value is remembered by the EDM and will be displayed as you hold the LF button. Notice that this cylinder is not necessarily the hottest EGT. JPI’s quick response, grounded, EGT probes permit the leaning process to take place quickly before there are major temperature changes. If you lean beyond peak, the EGT will drop and the engine will be operating lean of peak. The fuel flow option during LeanFind will simultaneously display fuel flow in Gal./Hr. and EGT. This will permit the pilot to enrichen the mixture while viewing the fuel that will be burned per hour. This is only possible with the JPI fuel flow with quick response fuel flow electronics.
Fuel Flow Option:
The Fuel Flow option is available at checkout with or without transducers. After extensive observations of many fuel flow measurement products, JPI’s engineers concluded that all the systems presently on the market were not capable of supporting the EGT leaning process due to their slow response times. JPI has developed a fast response system that permits you to simultaneously view peak EGT and minimum fuel flow. As the pilot leans the engine he will see simultaneously fuel flow and peak EGT. Enrichen the engine 20 degrees and note the fuel flow. There will be an optimum EGT enrichment vs. fuel flow for your engine, giving maximum range and power. The EDM Memory will include fuel flow in the data file. A throttle change with GPS interface will display fuel required to next GPS waypoint or destination. The EDM can be set to monitor EGT or Fuel Flow only or both sequentially with the flip of a switch. The bar graph always displays EGT/CHT.
Fuel Used (USD):
How much fuel has been used since you last refueled. This number will always become larger as fuel is consumed. You can instead show the fuel used on a long multi-fuel stop flight and we will see later in this video how to do that.Fuel remaining (REM)
How much total fuel remains in the aircraft. Only total fuel remaining in the aircraft is calculated.
Hours and minutes remaining (H.M.):
Based on the current fuel flow rate, displays the remaining endurance time. This parameter is most meaningful during cruise. During sea-level climb the fuel flow rate will be almost twice that of cruise and the endurance indication will be about half of actual. On the other hand, during a power reduction descent, the endurance will indicate more time than is actually available when flying at cruise power.
Fuel Required to Waypoint/ Destination (REQ):
This parameter will be displayed only if your EDM 760 is receiving flight data from your GPS (this is a standard feature which is included with the Fuel Flow option). This will tell you how much fuel is required to get to the next waypoint or destination programmed on your GPS, based on your current fuel flow rate and present position.
Fuel Reserve (RES):
Fuel reserve when you arrive at your next waypoint. This parameter will be displayed only if your EDM 760 is receiving flight data from your GPS (this is a standard feature which is included with the Fuel Flow option). This will tell you how much fuel reserve you can expect when you arrive at your next waypoint or destination programmed on your GPS, at the current fuel flow rate.
Distance per fuel units. Both the REQ and the RES indicator lights will be on at the same time. It will tell you your miles per fuel unit such as miles per gallon, miles per liter or miles per pound. It is based on your current ground speed and current fuel flow rate.

Q: Can the JPI EDM 790 be a primary replacement of the original EGT?
No, this cannot be a primary replacement.
Q: What is the screen size of the JPI EDM 790?
The screen has a Width of 4.81" and a Height of 3.47".
Q: Is there an oil temperature option for the EDM-790?
Yes, it is option part # 10-05773. We have added it to the list of options.
Q: The JPI EDM 790 has an offset case design. The (limited) installation instructions seem to indicate it can be used offset left or right by inverting the display with a button sequence. Is this correct?
Yes, that is correct.
Q: Why does the price say each?
Each refers to the unit of measure. In this case each refers to one system. The price is for qty 1 x EDM 790.
Q: Can the Oil temperature sensors be added later or do they need to be provisioned in the at the time of original purchase?
The Oil temperature option can be added later to the EDM 790.
Q: Is there an upgrade option from my dual gem units to this 790?
Unfortunately no, We only have the GEM upgrade to an EDM 700, part number 10-03611.
