Page 2Vision Microsystems IncorporatedDisplayThe display is the primary interface between engine instrumentation andthe pilot. See the figure at the end of the table of contents for a depictionof the display. Optional measurements that are not installed will not beon the display; they will be blank.Dimming controlNo external connection is needed for dimming. The display is autodimmed by a photocell. However you can adjust the low light levelsetting for your conditions. To adjust, initially hold and until thedisplay blinks once. Then use and to adjust the brightness. Aftersetting the new brightness level, do not press any buttons within 5seconds and your new setting automatically is saved.Tachometer OperationThe tachometer system provides both a full sweep graphic analogdisplay and four place digital display. When you start the engine youwill see the analog graph rise in proportion to the engine speed. Fullcolor range marks and graphics provide you with a quick reference tomonitor normal, caution and red line engine RPM.RPMThe digital readout provides you withexact RPM information. The resolution (orincremental steps) of the digital display is5 RPM. The high accuracy of thetachometer will allow you to follow longterm performance trends of your engineand prop, such as static maximum rpm,carburetor heat effectiveness, and typical mag drops. These can beimportant indicators of engine and accessory condition. Page 43Engine Operating HoursAnother feature is the engine hours counter. When the engine is off,the RPM digital display shows the total accumulated engine hours toa maximum of 9999.9. Engine hours are accumulated any time RPM

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePageis greater than 1500. The engine hour counter is initialized byperforming the ENGINE HOURS setup. Page 41RPM AlertA warning alert activates wheneverthe engines redline is reached (as setin ENGINE LIMITS menu). TheRPM display will flash until thiscondition is corrected. Page 43Manifold Pressure OperationThe manifold pressure system provides both a full sweep colorgraphic analog display and three place digital display. The full colorrange marks provide you with a quick reference to when making fastpower changes.The digital readout provides you with precise information. Thisallows very precise power settings to be achieved and is useful fornew induction system designs, or modifications to existing designs,where repeatability and accuracy is a must.Note: If %HP icon is shown, then the VM1000C is in percentpower mode. To change to the Manifold Pressure mode simplyhold in until you see the MAN icon appear.Manifold Pressure AlertA warning alert activates whenever the engine’s redline is reached(as set in ENGINE LIMITS menu section 50.0 user defined engineparameters). The display will flash until this condition is corrected.Manifold Pressure Calibration (Optional)Manifold Pressure can be fine-tuned to your installation in theappropriate MISCELLANEOUS menu item.3

Page 4Vision Microsystems IncorporatedPercent Power Operation / CalibrationThe percent power system provides both a full sweep color graphicanalog display and three place digital display. The full color rangemarks provide you with a quick reference when making fast powerchanges and the digital readout provides precise information. Awarning alert activates whenever the %HP redline is reached (as setin ENGINE LIMITS menu). The display flashes until this conditionis corrected. To activate Percent Power mode, simply hold in untilyou see the %HP icon appear. Note: calibration must be initiallyperformed before use.Oil System OperationBoth oil pressure and oil temperature are displayedcontinuously in two separate full sweep colorgraphic and digital areas.Oil PressureAs oil pressure rises, the graph size increasesproportionately. The full color range marks let you see at a glancehow close to red line oil pressure you are. The graphic changes colorto match the range marks.The digital display shows in 1 PSI increments to a maximum of 199.This is very useful for monitoring typical engine oil pressure trends.Because of the high accuracy and repeatability of this system, the oilpressure can be closely monitored for unusual trends. For example, ifyou are cruising in a stabilized condition, and the oil pressure startsto decrease, and oil temperature is increasing, this may indicate animpending oil system problem.Oil Pressure AlertA warning alert activates whenever the engines redline is reached (asset in ENGINE LIMITS menu 50.4). The display will flash until thiscondition is corrected.Oil Temperature

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePage5Oil temperature is displayed both graphically and digitally. As oiltemperature rises, the digital value and graph size increasesproportionately. Temperature is displayed in either Fahrenheit orCelsius units (as set in the MISCELLANEOUS menu).The full color range marks let you see at a glance how close to redline oil temperature you are.The digital display shows in 1 degree increments to a maximum of290 degrees F (143 degrees C). This is very useful for monitoringtypical engine oil cooling system performance.For new engine installations, you can take advantage of the highaccuracy and repeatability for analyzing the engine oil cooler systemefficiency. If the cooling does not seem to be effective enough, youcan make changes and repeat your tests with the confidence that thenext test data will reflect the results of your changes.Oil Temperature AlertIf the oil temperature rises above redline (as set in ENGINE LIMITSmenu 50.5), the display will flash until the problem is corrected.Fuel Computer System OperationWARNINGImproper use of the fuel flow computer or suspectederroneous or intermittent operation will give you incorrectinformation and may result in premature fuel exhaustion. Donot use as the primary means of fuel quantity management.Insure that you understand the operation of this systemcompletely and carefully monitor its performance before andduring flight. Verify the systems operation for your intendeduse by comparing actual burned fuel versus the indicatedburned fuel brn.Fuel Pressure is displayed both digitally and graphically. As fuelpressure rises, the graph rises proportionately. Full color operating rangemarks and graphics are provided that indicate the normal operating rangeof fuel pressure for your engine at a glance. The digital display allows

Page 6Vision Microsystems Incorporatedyou to see small variations and make notations of typical fuel pressurebehavior.Fuel Pressure Alert warning system will flash should fuel pressure falloutside of the limits (as set in ENGINE LIMITS menu) for yourparticular engine.Fuel Flow Computer has five modes available. The units can be set toeither gallons, Imperial gallons or liters (as set in theMISCELLANEOUS menu). Fuel Flow is displayed both digitally andgraphically, but all other measurements are displayed only digitally. Allvalues are calculated based on the fuel flow sensor and your initialinputs:GPH or LPH - Fuel FlowADD - ADD fuel to computer memory “tank”REM - Calculated Fuel REMaining onboardBRN - Fuel BuRNed since last power-upHRS - HouRS of fuel remainingFuel Remaining Alert occurs when the computed fuel REM is less thanthe low fuel remaining value (as set in MISCELLANEOUS) by flashingthe display.Selecting Fuel Computer ModesTap to select the desired fuel computer mode. The mode isdisplayed near the fuel flow readout. The following describes eachmode:ADD: (flashes) Default mode after powering up and reminds you tocheck your fuel REM and add fuel if needed. If you have added fuel tothe aircraft, you must select this mode and add fuel to the fuelcomputer’s electronic “tank.” See section below on ADDING FUEL TOTHE COMPUTER. Tap to leave this mode, if not needed.GPH / LPH: This mode displays the fuel flow both digitally andgraphically. The graphic section provides you with a quick reference ofthe current fuel flow.REM: This mode displays the current fuel total remaining.

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePageHRS: This mode displays the calculated hours of fuel remaining(sometimes referred to as endurance), as a function of the current flowrate and current fuel remaining (REM) in the computer's memory. It isdigitally displayed in 0.1 hour increments.BRN: This mode displays the gallons of fuel burned in flight sincesystem power up.Adding Fuel to the Fuel ComputerYour fuel computer has a feature that allows you to add fuelaccording to how much has been added to the tank(s). Follow thesteps below to ADD fuel to the computer:STEP 1.Tap to change the fuel computer mode to showADD. It should now be flashing.STEP 2.Tap to increment and to decrement the ADDvalue, shown in the digital display, to match the fuelthat was added to the aircraft.NOTE: To top off the tank(s) just tap andthe amount will jump to your maximum REMcapacity you programmed initially in setup.Taping a second time sets value to zero.STEP 3.If you are satisfied with the entered value, then tap to accept it. NOTE: the new total is limited to themaximum tank capacity value (as set inMISCELLANEOUS).NOTE: To exit WITHOUT adding the valueshown, just tap .Cylinder Watch System OperationThe Cylinder Watch engine analyzer systemdisplays all cylinder information bothgraphically and digitally. The cylinders aredepicted as a top view that makesidentification easy. The numbering layout isselected for either the Continental or7

Page 8Vision Microsystems IncorporatedLycoming engines during setup. Full color graphics make detectionof cylinder operating status easy. The digital display defaults to thehottest CHT. For example, if CHT 1 is the hottest, the digitaldisplay will show H1 periodically.Pressing will cycle through each CHT and the hottest and allowyou to select a different CHT by choosing C1, C2 etc. After powerup or after a peak find operation, the digital display defaults to showthe hottest CHT. Temperature is displayed in either Fahrenheit orCelsius units (as set in the MISCELLANEOUS menu).CHT Alert: warning system will flash if a CHT limit is exceeded(as set in ENGINE LIMITS ). For over temperature both the graphicand digital will flash. A lowercase h1 would identify CHT1 asexceeding the maximum redline temperature. For shock cooling aflashing lowercase c1 would identify CHT1 as exceeding themaximum cool down rate (as set in MISCELLANEOUS menu).EGT Analyzer System OperationThe EGT ANALYZER system displays all EGTs graphically. EGTprobes are periodically tested by the system and any probe that isdetected as bad will be shut off. Peaking mode is not allowed if abad probe (including a TIT probe) is detected. An EGT overtemperature (as set in ENGINE LIMITS) will cancel and disallowpeaking mode until corrected.The system can operate in either of two leaning modes: Rich ofPeak or Lean of Peak. This is selected during initial system setup.After power up, the EGT digital display defaults to EGT 1 (unlessyou have enabled the TIT system - see Turbo Inlet TemperatureSystem Operation). Periodically the digital display will identifywhich EGT you are seeing by showing and E followed by the EGTnumber, such as E1 for EGT 1. After you have successfully leanedthe engine (as an example, lets assume it was EGT 2), the digitalreadout is locked to that EGT and E1 will change to P2 signifyingthat it peaked on EGT 2.

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePageTap to select a different EGT by choosing E1, E2, E3 etc. (Note:not available when in the peak mode). Temperature is displayed ineither Fahrenheit or Celsius units (as set in the MISCELLANEOUSmenu).WARNINGRefer to your engine operating manual for the propertechniques, temperature and precautions for leaning.Improper leaning may damage your engine!Peaking Mode OperationSTEP 1: StabilizeThe aircraft engine temps, throttle and rpm. Set the mixture at richof peak by verifying all EGT values decrease a few bars when fuelflow is increased, then allow the engine to stabilize for 5 to 10seconds.STEP 2: Find Peaka.Tap . Observe that a row of bars appear across the top ofthe EGT graphics area signifying peak mode is active.b.Lean the mixture smoothly so EGT is changing about 3 to 5 Fper second. If significant engine roughness occurs, then atrue peak cannot be found and leaning should be aborted andmixture returned to a rich value.c.When peak is found several things happen on the display:1. The EGT graph flashes for a short period of time and itstop bar comes on identifying the peaked EGT column.2. Both the EGT and DIF icon are activated.3. The digital readout now shows DIFferential temperature(the peak EGT minus current EGT). A positive numbermeans rich of peak and a negative number means youare lean of peak.4. Periodically the actual EGT temperature of the peakedcylinder is displayed (DIF goes off) allowing you tomonitor it as well.9

Page 10Vision Microsystems IncorporatedSTEP 3: Final Mixture Adjustmenta.Now adjust the mixture differential value accordingly to whichleaning mode you initially set up, rich of peak (positive DIF) orlean of peak (negative DIF).b.When you have completed leaning, turn off the peakmode by pressing again. The DIF icon will go out.Electrical Monitoring System OperationVOLTAGE is displayed both graphically anddigitally. Full color range marks provide a quickreference for fast analysis of voltage levels. As voltagerises, the graph size increases proportionately.Voltage Alert: warning system will flash should voltage fall outsideof the limits (as set in ENGINE LIMITS).AMPERAGE is displayed both graphically and digitally. Full colorrange marks provide a quick reference for fast analysis of amperagelevels. As amperage rises, the graph size increases proportionately.The digital readout displays amperage at 1 amp resolution.The amp system functions as an alternator load meter displayingcurrent flow FROM the alternator TO the aircraft electrical systemallowing you to see if a load (such as pitot heat) is really drawingcurrent when turned on. You should see an increase on the ampdisplay when you turn on a load, such as pitot heat for example. Thistells you that the pitot heater is drawing power and is probably OK.By verifying that voltage remains the same, then it can be assumedthat the alternator is supporting the additional load.Amperage Alert: warning system will flash should amperage falloutside of the limits (as set in ENGINE LIMITS).Autotrack System OperationThe Autotrack system is a breakthrough in modern engine monitoringtechnology. Designed to reduce the pilot's workload by assisting inthe tedious and often overlooked job of monitoring enginemeasurements for small but significant deviations, Autotrack adds a

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePagenew level of safety to engine management: a true cockpit EarlyWarning System.Subtle changes may occur in engine measurements that can precedemajor problems. These changes are often missed by even the mostattentive of pilots. Autotrack alerts you to these changes allowing youto analyze the situation and take appropriate action.When to Use Autotrack Climb - Activate during climb to alert you as measurementschange as a function of the prolonged climb. Cruise - Activate during cruise to alert you if any measurementbegins to drift from your selected starting point. Descent - Activate during descent to alert you to increasingmanifold pressure or percent power and rising EGT due to aleaning mixture.How to Use Autotrack(Note: Autotrack is disabled if peak mode or alarms are active).STEP 1.STABILIZE the aircraft. Set up your desired power andmixture condition. Allow the engine time to stabilize(i.e., engine temps and pressures, etc.).STEP 2.Tap . The Autotrack indicator will activate on thedisplay and the system will begin tracking the engine'sperformance from this pointThe Autotrack system is now armed and watching for enginedeviation from the point you picked. To cancel, simply tap toextinguish the Autotrack indicator. Re-arm again at any time.Autotrack Alert IndicationsIf any engine measurement deviates above or below the initial capturedpoint by more than its allowed difference (as set in ENGINE LIMITS),the system will flash the graphic element for that measurement and theAutotrack icon to alert you of this deviation. To shut off the alertcondition, either correct the reason the measurement deviated or tap to turn off the Autotrack system.11

Page 12Vision Microsystems IncorporatedHere are a few examples of Autotrack scenarios:Example 1: You arm the Autotrack system then begin a climb.Shortly afterwards you get an Autotrack Alert.The CHT graphic will flash and you see that the capturedpoint is lower than the current CHT (temperature is rising).You lower the nose to increase cooling thus preventing aCHT over-temperature.You turn Autotrack off then back on to continuemonitoring at the new conditions.Example 2: Autotrack is armed and you are in steady cruise flight.During the flight you get an Autotrack Alert.You spot that the oil pressure graphic is flashing and thecurrent oil pressure has dropped.The oil pressure has not reached the low redline yet, soyou decide to land at the nearest safe airport andinvestigate the reduction in oil pressure.You discover that an oil line has been leaking and the lossof oil quantity caused the reduced pressure!Flight Data Recorder System OperationThe Flight Data Recorder logs engine data at periodic intervals (yourchoice in MISCELLANEOUS setup) and you later download it byusing EZTrends , the powerful data graphical analysis PC program.The recorder is fully automatic and records while the engine isrunning. Typical storage is greater than 80 operating hours (for a 6second logging interval). A special mode called Snapshot allows youto capture data in fast one second intervals, both 180 secondsBEFORE and AFTER the time of activation, providing detailedinformation. Snapshot can be set up to activate automatically on

VM1000C Pilot’s GuidePageAir Temperature System OperationThe OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE (OAT) andCARBURETOR AIR TEMPERATURE (CAT) aredigitally displayed in degrees C. Most true airspeedindicators have the temperature correction scalecalibrated in Degrees C, making it easy to enter thetemperature directly from the OAT display.The digital displays shows in 1 C increments to a maximum of 99 Cand a minimum of -50 C. For new engine installations, you can takeadvantage of the high accuracy and repeatability for analyzingcarburetor heat effectiveness or induction air temperaturesThe CAT measurement channel can be used for a cabin airtemperature, cowling air temperature or induction air temperature inaircraft where there is no carburetor. . User can select C or F forAir Temps 42.00 or use Vision Config.Fuel Level System Operation (Optional)WARNINGAircraft attitude, fuel contamination and other factors canaffect the accuracy of the fuel level readings and maycause premature fuel exhaustion. After installation andduring operation, verify that the systems accuracy isacceptable for your intended use.The fuel level system operates automatically, once the FUEL LEVELSYSTEM CALIBRATION has been performed. The indicatordisplays a left and right digital read-out of the units of fuel remainingof up to 199 units per tank. Additionally the left and right displays arealso presented graphically to show percentage of fuel remaining forquick reference.If a probe is not functioning, or a calibration has not been done for aselected tank, or certain system sensors are malfunctioning, that tank15

Page 16Vision Microsystems Incorporateddisplay will show Er. An unusual unsteady display value should besuspect and possibly disregarded as faulty operation.Fuel Level Alert: A low fuel level alarm has been incorporated intothe system which signals you when a minimum fuel level has beenreached (as set in 60.0 FUEL LEVEL CALIBRATION) for a giventank by flashing and sounding an alert tone.Turbo Inlet Temperature System OperationIMPORTANT: Check your engine operating manual for the allowedvalues when programming the TIT ranges in menu code 50.0.The TIT system is comprised of a four place digital readout (sharedwith the EGT digital field) and a vertical bargraph with range marks.The bargraph always depicts the hottest TIT and sweeps between theset points you defined during initial setup. The digital display showsthe TIT value by default (ht1 or ht2 depicting the hottest turbo or justt1 if a single turbo). Pressing will change the digital display to theother TIT (if so equipped) and subsequent presses will step to thevarious EGT temps (as indicated by the illumination of the EGT icon).TIT probes are periodically tested by the system. If any probe isdetected as bad, the digital display will show Er. Peaking mode is notallowed if a bad TIT probe is detected. See section on EGT operation.To use the TIT system, you must have first properly configured theTIT setup modes (probe selection and range limits).Section 2 - EC100 SYSTEM OPERATION (Optional)The EC100 system provides several categories of easily accessedinformation.
