Operator manual for the electronic engine indicator PREMET C Version 1.11

LEMAG PREMET C
Thank you for buying the LEMAG PREMET C electronic indicator. The technology and handling of the LEMAG PREMET C Indicator has been developed and designed for the future. It is easy to operate, record, store and analyse all measurement data on the units colour display for quick results, high accuracy and repeatability. The LEMAG PREMET C can measure up to 30 peak pressures for 1-20 cylinders and calculate the statistical data. It also compensates for temperature changes prior to every measurement. The LEMAG PREMET C will provide you with essential data about your engines. Different versions of the electronic indicator are available and additional features can be upgraded at a later stage if required. Depending on your version, the LEMAG PREMET C can e.g. measure and calculate the mean indicated pressure, indicated power and combustion pressure in relation to the crank angle by using a TDC Sensor, inductive or optional laser type. Analysis software is also integrated into the LEMAG PREMET C to enable more detailed analyses on any compatible PC. To ease this operation the unit acts like an external mass storage device (USB stick). There is no need for installing a device driver for the PREMET C on computers with Windows XP or VISTA. Reading the operating instructions will help you benefit from all the instruments functions. Our high quality LEMAG PREMET C indicators can increase efficiency and we are certain that it will become a vital tool on board. Safety Instructions Please note that compressed exhaust gases are extremely dangerous due to their high temperatures and pressures. The connection between the indicator cock and indicator must be absolutely gas tight. Please ensure that the connection nut on the indicator cock is securely fitted before opening. The indicator valve must be completely closed before dismounting the LEMAG PREMET C. Temperature Range This instruments temperature range for storage is -20 C to +70 C. The temperature range for measuring is an environmental temperature of 0 C to 50 C.

7.2 Menu point CHECK TDC SENSOR, dynamically (only for option XL or MS) The submenu dynamically is intended to check the TDC/MS sensor on a running engine: CHECK TDC SENSOR Measure RPM Status: wait RPM: 0000.0 This function automatically scans the TDC sensor input. If there is no signal for 3 seconds the status shows: no signal and the rpm is set to 0000.0 rev/min. If there is a speed signal the RPM is set to the actual engine speed. If the PREMET has the option MS and a MS sensor is connected the status shows the number of INC pulses / revolution. If the number of INC pulses / revolution differs from 360 pulses the MS sensor should be checked. This function runs until the user presses the ESC key. 7.3 Menu point CHECK TDC SENSOR, count INC pulses (only for option MS) The submenu count INC pulses is intended to check the number of INC pulses of the MS sensor while slow turning of the engine: CHECK TDC SENSOR Count INC pulses Status: wait TDC INC: 000 This function waits for the first occurrence of the TDC signal (status: wait TDC). If the TDC signal occurred the status changes to status: measuring and the number of INC pulses are updated. If the next TDC pulse appears the measurement is stopped (status: finished). The number of INC pulses should be 360. Otherwise the MS sensor should be checked. This function runs until the user presses ESC.

8.1 Menu point CALIBRATE, check calibration This menu is intended to allow the user to statically check the calibration of the cylinder pressure sensor: CHECK CALIBRATION Apply test pressure Then press ENTER Apply a known test pressure, for example 100 bar. Then press the ENTER key if the test pressure is stable. CHECK CALIBRATION Ubat = 7,75 Volt Temp= 20 degC Apply 0 bar Then press ENTER The instrument shows the battery voltage and the internal temperature. Now release the pressure as soon as possible and press the ENTER key as soon as possible: CHECK CALIBRATION Pressure = 100.5 bar Press any key The shown pressure should not deviate more than 1.6 % from the known test pressure. Otherwise the instrument should be returned to LEHMANN & MICHELS for recalibration.
