Precise engine intake air management with an XCP integrated engine air control system

Aug 12 2020 Read 122 Times

CFR Engines Inc. now offers the Engine Air Control System (EACS) for precise management of engine intake air and auxiliary cooling. Users can now rely on the factory design and performance of a complete octane test package, when the EACS is paired with a CFR F1/F2 unit and CFR recommended exhaust components. Like all CFR products, the EACS is made in the USA and carries the UL and CE marks.

The EACS easily integrates with existing units to form an overall octane testing system, and leverages XCP Technology to produce the most reliable Octane Number. The EACS can be used with any existing engine, including those using a legacy control panel. However, when the EACS is used on an engine with an XCP panel, the EACS becomes part of the overall system managed by XCP Technology. This integration with XCP allows users to fully manage the EACS from the central HMI of the XCP. It also provides automatic data recording of EACS performance by the XCP and includes the engine intake air humidity on the final octane test report for improved accountability.

With a nominal design operating range of 60°F – 100°F (16°C – 38°C) and 10-60% relative humidity, the standard production EACS can reliably support operation in nearly all global environments. Additionally, the EACS provides carburetor coolant at a temperature range of 33°F – 50°F (0.6°C – 10°C). Management of engine intake air temperature, precise control of intake air humidity, and proper use of carburetor cooling are all critical to meeting the precision that a documented and defendable octane number test requires. Controlling variables and achieving a successful octane test is easier using an EACS integrated with XCP Technology.
