TC-5 4 Channel Thermocouple (EGT/CHT) Indicator
3 1/8” sunlight readable 4 channel thermocouple color display instrument.
The instrument can be configured for 5 different temperature display screens. The display can be configured to group EGTs and CHTs to common settings or each thermocouple channel can be independently displayed with individual programmable high alarm and probe type. The TC-5 also has a trend graph and maximum values display screen.
The TC-5’s high accuracy is due to its built in thermocouple linearization curves and cold junction compensation techniques. Temperature probes can be common J, K or E type thermocouple probes as used in CHT and EGT senders. Temperatures can be displayed in degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit from -100ºC to 1200ºC (-148ºF to 2192ºF).
The TC-5 also features a built in engine leaning facility which allows the pilot to optimize the fuel mixture according to peak EGT temperatures as well as a cruise mode facility to provide instant identification of changing EGT/CHT trends.
The TC-5 can also be interfaced via the CAN bus to an external RDAC unit (Remote Data Acquisition Computer). This allows for easier installation as the RDAC unit is normally mounted in the engine compartment.
