Also, my plan is to run one side of my dual system for a while, then complete the wiring, dump the remaining mag, and go all EI. But, I need the Skyview to read the signal from SDS, otherwise I will not have a rpm reading with the dual system. Thus, the importance of getting this solved now. Bruce Estes

Bruce, I'll contact Dynon on Monday and see if we can get to the bottom of this for you.

Default Success

Barry from SDS contacted me last night (Sunday). They found THEIR mistake in a wiring harness. I made the correction this morning and I now have a tach reading from the CPI-2. Flew for .5. I now have 2 hours on the system and all is good. Now on to more tuning and testing. Bruce Estes

Glad this got figured out and Barry is very embarrassed at the wiring error.

A revised manual has been uploaded to the CPI-2 and Aircraft Documentation area pages today. All users, please reference this one as it corrects and clarifies some of the wiring issues on the tach and kill switch wires, specifically pages 4-6. It also has more guidance on hooking up to Garmin, Dynon and AFS glass.

Default New Boards Are In!

We finally received our 2nd batch shipment of CPI-2 boards from the loading/ soldering facility today so can start filling new orders late next week.

There is a small order backlog still waiting to fill and we'll handle those first.

If you're ready to pull the trigger on an EI, check out the CPI-2. Lots of advanced features, competitive pricing, no starting kickbacks, no lost timing events, no blast tubes, no inspections, no bearing or gears to fail.

It's fully user programmable so you can optimize the timing curve for YOUR engine, suiting the fuel you use, compression ratio, forced induction and whether you fly LOP.

We have both single and dual, 4 and 6 cylinder systems available.

Default Backup Battery Tray Kit



Here is the optional battery tray kit we offer for the CPI-2. Mount the tray with the provided hardware in a convenient corner.

All the wiring is done for you, just plug the connectors into the ECU and Powersonic PS-1227 battery. Fusing is provided right on the tray.

The ECU monitors and charges the battery as needed.

Default Post Osh Update

Lots of CPI-2 interest at Osh. We're cranking out several CPI-2 kits per week here now, mostly for 6 cylinder engines. Thanks to the folks who placed orders after Osh.

We should be caught up and back at 2 day order to ship times by Aug. 19.

If I installed this on my airplane, when I press the LOP button, what will I see?

Lets say I have a 180 hp Lycoming IO-360 with Bendix RSA fuel injection. The injectors are balanced, and I install your CPI-2 product to replace both Mags. Cruising at 8000' at 60% power and have the timing set lets say to 25 BTDC. What about 10,000' or 12,000'?

I'm guessing EGT decline, CHT's rise.....will I see airspeed rise too? How much?
