EIS Software Version

Post by N651RV »

I am confused about the software versions of the EIS 4000. I was going thorough the set up pages of my Sport SX last night when I saw the question" EIS software 56 - yes-no. I removed my EIS and it is labeled Serial Number 17930, Software Version 44561F Is this version 56? Also the latest manual on the web for the EIS is Rev K Software Version 7.5 and Above. How does this tie in with the software version printed on my EIS?
Confused :?

The 5 you see is actually the letter S.

44 - Model 4000
S - Sensor Scientific type sensors
61 - Software version 6.1
F - Fuel Flow option

The "EIS software version 56" option applies only to units with exactly software version 5.6 (56). This should be No for you. If it was set wrong, the Sport SX wouldn't be able to read the data at all. Version 5.6 had an incompatible change to the serial format.

The "software version 7.5 and above" in the manual means the manual was written with version 7.5 in mind and may mention features that only work in version 7.5 and above. A new processor that can be reprogrammed was first used with version 7.0. The Tach2 input was added with version 7.5.

Thanks Jeff,
That's cleared it up, no longer confused.
I stopped buy your booth at Oshkosh but forgot to ask.
