Insight Graphic Engine Monitor G3
Another great feature is why not have the G3 instrument diagnose itself? Then you don’t have to disassemble the airplane or even touch the wiring. The probe diagnosis page indications are in green for normal readings and red for readings that fail the criteria set at the bottom of the screen.
Insight's 610C Graphic Engine Monitor (G3) color-coded bar graph and digital values may be Primary for CHT , EGT and TIT. All other data shown in cyan at the top of display are to be supplementary. The data-log files stored on the SD card can be easily retrieved by the pilot, in-flight or post-flight, for instant viewing or permanent record-keeping. The G3 is a sophisticated tool for engine management. Its microprocessor performs many tasks that used to be handled by the pilot.
I purchased this product back in November 2012 and have about 50 hours of experience with it. While I love this product I could only give it four stars. The reason is, my mechanic was unable to get the tachometer function to work on the insight G3. He spent approximately 10 hours trying to get it to work per the installation manual but couldn't get it to work. I believe this could be a design flaw. As a result, the percentage of engine power function does not work which is important to know when leaning the mixture to LOP. Everything else on the unit works beautifully and it's nice being able to see CHT's and EGT's in a numerical value rather than a bar graph with numbers as on the older display I had. I thought it was going to have trouble reading the display due to its compact size but have had no such issues so far. I would definitely recommend this product to somebody looking for an engine monitor. Insights customer service has been excellent. I would probably recommend this product over JPI due to the LOP and ROP function. As you lean the mixture the EGT's will rise and once they peak, and you go lean, you will start to see the difference in temperature from lean of peak. This is an excellent feature so you know exactly how many degrees lean of peak or rich of peak you are. This makes it very easy to help you stay out of the red box. All other functions work really well, fuel flow, oil pressure, oil temperature, G-force, data recording, and more. If you're in the market for a very good engine monitor do not overlook the insight G3.
We have two of these installed in our aircraft and feel that it's a great idea with lousy execution. The knobs are terrible - sometimes one click moves you one click, sometimes it moves you 30 clicks. It's not very confidence inspiring. The lean-finder mode is terrible unless you go really, really, really slow. We've had problems with probes failing - three EGT probes in less than 300 hours. The installation is pretty half-baked too. If it was this way on one aircraft installation I'd call it a fluke, but it's this way on both of them so I assume it's just the way it is. In summary this unit is unreliable and it's hard to believe it ever got certified. If I could take it back I would and I'd consider another product like the MVP 50 series.
Yes, the G3 is a TSO'd (certified) unit.
