AKV’s Turbine Engine Cycle Counters are the most affordable engine cycle counters for the Gas Producer (N1) and Free Turbine (N2) in the industry. The Cycle Counters are valuable in that they allow the operator to obtain the most operating cycle life out of the engine when compared to relying on the pilot to accrue cycles. The pilot process is very conservative whereas the cycle counter utilizes a much more precise and less conservative process based on the engine manufacturer’s cycle counting algorithm.
AKV’s Cycle counters are designed to comply with the latest manufacturer cycle counting requirements.
Engine Cycle Counters Benefits:
• Reduced Operating Costs
• Increased Engine Cycle Life
• High Accuracy
• Field Programmable
• Easy Installation
• Optional “Data Stream” for
Automatic data transfer
Easy To Read 4 Line LCD Display Indicating:
- Gas Producer (N1), Free Turbine (N2) & Rotor RPM
- N1 & N2 Flight Cycle Counts
- N1 & N2 Engine Totals
- Engine Start Counter
- N1 & N2 Operation/Excursions Counter
