Since the beginning, AKV has provided engine cycle counters for a variety of helicopter models. Our cycle counters are critical for day to day operations requiring tracking of cycle life limited engine components. The ETM1000 Exceedence and Trend Monitoring System is the next step in the evolution of our product line.
All parameters are continually monitored and record historical data with date and time stamp of normal conditions along with duration of exceedences. All data is continually written to a removable SD card where the recorded data can be viewable via MS Excel custom AKC Inc. viewing software providing a legible format for viewing.
System health and exceedence status indication via amber caution and red warning indicators is provided to the pilot via pushbutton / annunciators mounted on the instrument panel.
A unique feature of the AKV ETM1000 is that there are no transducers to install since it is designed to couple to the existing drive train signal generators. This provides for a system that has a lower acquisition cost, ease of installation and a much higher level of dependability.
A dedicated power check push-button records all engine parameters for easy maintenance plotting.
Additional model Helicopters will be added to include the Bell and McDonald Douglas series.
