Dr. RoTech Engine Diagnostic Tool


Light Sport Group has announced the introduction of its Dr. RoTech engine electronics analyzer for Rotax 912 and 914 series engines. Dr. RoTech was designed to assist aircraft mechanics, pilots and aircraft owners in troubleshooting the systems of the most popular line of Rotax engines. It will provide initial and preliminary troubleshooting information on all the major electrical system components described in the 912 powertrain maintenance manual when it is plugged into the six-pin plug on the Rotax ignition system, according to Light Sport Group.

Troubleshooting electrical problems on the 912 series of engines previously required the use of a voltmeter and extensive knowledge of the aircraft’s electrical system. Dr. RoTech can plug directly into the ignition module’s connector or can detect which system you are testing if using the test lead/probe. Labeled green and red pass/fail lights indicate which systems are functioning properly. Dr. RoTech performs all of the required measurements of BRP-Rotax 912/914 Heavy Maintenance Manual section 74 paragraph 3.12, the company says, which include: the generator coil (on stator), charging coil (on stator), trigger coil (A&B), primary ignition coil (A&B), secondary ignition coil, spark plug connector, ignition switch and engine ground.

Dr. RoTech also offers PC support, allowing users to plug into a computer to obtain more specific information such as a failure counter for troubleshooting intermittent problems. The price is $499.99.
