Gear Box Temp Display

Postby Rob Henderson » Wed Mar 13, 2013 2:29 pm

I have a EGG EIS 2000 connected to a HXr, the Gear Box Temp is displayed on the EIS but the HXr shows 0 for the temp.
Any suggestions as to how to get the temp to display properly?
Thanks

The gearbox temp on a EIS 2000 EGG is astually a CHT thermocouple lead modified to use the gearbox temp sender. the information is on the HXR as a CHT not the gearbox temp. The only way that we have to display the temp the right way is to have you upgrade the EIS to the model 4000. That would give you the AUX functions that you would need to be able to wire the gearbox temp in to read on the HXR as a gearbox temp.

Can I select the CHT1 instead of the GBT1 in order to display the temp regardless of the "label"?
If I upgrade to the 4000 do I have to change out the temp probe? I am using a "K type" thermocouple

Yes you can use the CHT1 to display the temp. Also you can change the temp probe if the upgrade is more than 4000. So you are indeed on a right path.
