Thread: EarthX Battery Monitor

    Hi Shawn,
    I'm not sure if we've been getting enough "votes" to bring this more or less to the "top of the list" of things you guys do (I'm sure you have a lot on your plate). However, about a week ago I got an EarthX warning (I have the EarthX fault wire tied into one of the inputs on my 5600). It was due to the battery getting too warm (yes, it's hot here in Houston already). I'll be adding a "blast tube" and protective cover to the EarthX to help out with the heat issue but I was thinking it would be nice to have the "Decoder" up and running. Any progress on this front? Thanks!!

    Please send the instructions to me at speedy11 at aol dot com.

    All you need to do is connect the wire from the earthX battery to a spare EFIS digital input.

    Looks like this thread has gone silent. I too would be interested in this EarthX monitoring feature. Has any progress been made?
    Can you be more specific on how to utilize a "spare EFIS digital input"? (AFS 5600T with ACM)

    Connect the Fault Monitoring wire (black wire out side of battery) to one of the inputs of the Aircraft Rear Connector INPUT-PFD-1 through INPUT-MFD-3.

    Setup is done within the Inputs page of Instrument Configuration.
