XM Satellite Weather System XM Satellite Weather System The XM Satellite Weather System enhances situational awareness by providing the pilot with real time, graphical weather information. The XM antenna is integrated with the COM1 antenna it receives weather information from dual-redundancy satellites, that broadcasts in the S-Band frequency range. The signal is sent to the XM receiver, installed in the co-pilot side of the instrument console. The XM Satellite Weather System is powered by 28 VDC supplied through the 3-amp Weather/Stormscope breaker on the NonEssential Bus. Subscription to a XM Satellite Weather System Service Package is
required for operation. Once activated, the XM Satellite Weather System will overlay the NEXRAD Radar METARs SIGMETs AIRMETs TFRs Lightning Strikes XM Weather XM Weather 1. Sensor Status Block - with Broadcast datalink installed, the
Sensor Status Block gives the status of the weather information presented. The Lightning sensor status will reflect if the lightning information displayed on the Map is from the broadcast datalink, or from the on-board lightning sensor, if installed. The broadcast datalink sensor status is shown on the bottom line of this block, and indicates if the external broadcast satellite receiver is reporting a good operational status. The age of the most recent NEXRAD radar image is also listed. XM Weather XM Weather

Fuel - Provides Fuel Flow, Fuel Used, Fuel Remaining, Time Remaining, and Fuel Economy information.
Cylinder Temperatures - Full display of Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) and Cylinder Head Temperature (CHT) for all six cylinders. Engine Instruments - Cautions and Warnings - In order to assist the pilot in monitoring engine health the MFD will highlight any engine parameters that are not within normal operating conditions. Caution zone readings will cause the appropriate annunciation to turn yellow, while Warning zone readings will cause a red indication. Fuel Information Flow - Displays the current fuel flow in gallons per hour as reported by the SIU. Used - Displays the total amount of fuel used since the last engine start as reported by the
SIU. Rem - Displays the total amount of fuel remaining in gallons. This indication is calculated by the MFD based on the starting fuel entered by the pilot on the fuel initialization page and fuel flow as reported by the SIU. Time - Displays the amount of time remaining before the total useable fuel on board will be consumed. This value is only displayed when the GPS ground speed is greater than 50 knots. Econ - Displays the current fuel economy in nautical. This value is only displayed when the
GPS ground speed is greater than 50 knots. EGT/CHT EGT/CHT of each cylinder is displayed as a numeric indication above each bar. An up or down trend row will also appear below this numeric indication to indicate whether a cylinder's EGT/CHT is rising or falling. * The EGT indications are reported by
the SIU and in combination with the Lean Assist function are used to aid the pilot in leaning the aircraft's engine for desired performance. EGT Absolute - Selects the Absolute mode for EGT display. Absolute mode is the default display mode, which indicates the current exhaust gas temperature for each cylinder. Normalize
- Selects the Normalize mode for the EGT display. Upon activation, the display will establish all of the current EGT's at a zero point. * EGT in Normalized mode, the bar graphs will indicate overall changes in EGT rather than displaying the actual temperature values as in absolute mode. Leaning for Best Power 1.
2. 3. 4. 5. 6. In order to lean the engine for best power, begin by pressing the Lean Assist button and smoothly lean the mixture control. The MFD will annunciate "Looking for First Peak" at the top of the temperatures section of the display. When leaning for best power, the final mixture setting is based on first cylinder to peak. As the mixture is leaned look for a rise in EGT.
(For this example assume that cylinder #5 is the first to peak.) As cylinder #5 peaks the display will annunciate "Peak Detected" and the #5 cylinder bar graph will turn cyan. At this point the pilot should then begin to richen the mixture. As the mixture is richened the display will first annunciate Looking for #5 to Peak (Rich) and then Peak Detected (Rich) as it determines the peak temperature. Finally, it will display "Best Power" when the optimum best power mixture has been achieved (-65F to -85F Rich of Peak). 7. After the desired engine lean setting is achieved, press the
Normalize or Absolute button to exit the Lean Assist function. Leaning for Best Power Leaning for Best Economy 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
In order to lean the engine for best economy, begin by pressing the Lean Assist button and smoothly lean the mixture control. The MFD will annunciate "Looking for First Peak" at the top of the temperatures section of the display. As the EGT rise the first cylinder will reach peak EGT followed by the second cylinder. Continue to slowly lean the mixture. After the third cylinder peaks, the annunciation will change to Looking for Last Peak. When leaning for Best Economy, the final mixture setting is based on the last cylinder to peak. As the mixture is leaned further, the last cylinder will eventually peak, and the MFD will annunciate "Last Peak Detected." Continue leaning until the MFD annunciates "Best Economy" which
will indicate that the best economy mixture has been achieved (-25F to -50F Lean of Peak). 7. After the desired engine lean setting is achieved, press the Normalize or Absolute button to exit the Lean Assist function. Leaning for Best Economy Engine Monitoring on Moving Map
Data Blocks in the upper left and right corners of the Map page can be configured to show engine instrument information. The Lean data block shows the status of the Lean function. After leaning to Best Economy or Best Power on the Engine Page, press the Absolute or Normalize button to exit the Lean Assist mode. On the Map Page, the Lean data block will show Economy or Power when the Lean Assist procedure is completed. Other Lean data block states are: Leaning - Displayed when you switch back to the
map page before the Lean Assist mode was exited. Incomplete - When the Lean Assist mode is exited prior to achieving Best Power or Best Economy FF Change - When the lean state is changed by a fuel flow adjustment Pwr Change - When the lean state is changed by a power adjustment. Limitations 1.
