407 Exceedance Mystery


Recommended Posts

Guest BeeBee

We have had 2 unusual and unlilely exceedances recorded on our 407 in the past couple of months. One was for a very high torgue reading that in fact could not have occured and on a seperate occasion an MGT exceedance recorded during cruise, while well within limits. Has anybody else experienced any phantom or unexplained exceedances recorded on the 407? This could becoming a rather expensive problem. Bell, of course, has no explanation. "...very odd..." was their reply when questioned about it!

Just a shot in the dark....but did anyone check the ECU.....it records everything and although its a bit different for readings it can help identify whether or not something actually happened to the machine. Its not the Litton program for the gauges, its actually accessed through Maint Terminal. See Chapter 76 starting at about page 33 in the 407 Maint Manual. Hope it helps....

sometimes the gauge will spike for whatever reason (sometimes the shape of the clouds in the sky that day) and record an exceedance on the gauge. checking the ECU will tell you if it was actual or not
