Simultaneously displays EGT and CHT for Singles. (For Twins, call for model designation. May require two US-8As, depending on your requirements). Automatic Diagnostic Assist helps diagnose engine problems such as fouled plugs, burned valves, intake leaks, low compression, etc.
Impressive Features Include:
Re-programmable Temp Limits From the Front Panel
(unavailable on competition’s gauges in this category)
Auto Detection of hottest EGT and hottest CHT + pilot-programmed Over - Temp and Under-Temp limits
Programmable Scan Rate for each channel displayed
(rather than competition making that decision for you)
I bought this as a Christmas/Birthday present for my boyfriend. He has bought other EI gauges in the past and is quite happy with them. We both like the look of the gauges and their display layout. This engine analyzer will be going in his PA 22 floatplane this Spring. Looking forward to seeing what numbers the gauge shows us for helping us diagnose a potential issue.
I bought this two years ago and its sat in its box in my hangar since. Finally got around to scheduling a shop to install it. One EGT failed on them during run-up. They had to purchase a replacement from ACS. Second EGT failed on me during the initial flight home from the shop. Purchased another one from ACS to get it back up and running. Swapping failed probes is easy with the simple, seemingly proprietary crimps they send. Meanwhile, contacted mfg. They stated they would honor an exchange if I returned faulty units to them and they failed their tests (which is just a resistance check, which I tested both and they failed). They confirmed failure and sent me two replacements, which will now sit on my shelf until two more fail. The rep I spoke to was hesitant to admit anything, esp when I queried how often a six-cyl kit ships with two defective probes. Alas, its up and running now. I have 15 hours on the kit with no more issues. Unit itself works well and has discovered a cold cylinder that we have to look at. Its also fun being able to minutely lean the engine. Mfg supplies a TON of information on engine management with the package. Both the installation manual and the glossy, professionally-made operators manual read like college texts, which is both good and bad.

Yes it can as it will use a clamp type EGT and 12mm CHT probes. You must put in the special instruction notes that it is for a Jabiru 3300 or 2200 or you will get the wrong probes.
That is correct. For certified aircraft, the Electronics International US-8A can only be used as a secondary gauge. If you would like to remove your original engine analyzer, you would need to replace it with a certified primary analyzer such as the EI MVP-50.
Your primary EGT gauge is always required. The US-8A can only be installed as a secondary EGT. You can install and use the US-8A but it does not replace your primary EGT gauge.
Yes, this is STCd for the Cessna 172.
Per the product description this is for 4-cylinder engines without a Primary CHT gauge already installed.
Correct. It does not come with one.
