ENode Engine Data Acquisition
Protect your aircraft from catastrophic failure, reduce potential risks and expenditures, all while saving your fleet’s bottom line with the ENode. Latitude’s engine data acquisition unit is built to enable engine condition trend monitoring (ECTM), flight data monitoring (FDM), and fuel management programs for your aircraft.
Enable Engine Trend Monitoring
Stay In Control of your Engine
The ENode engine data acquisition unit is built to support engine trend monitoring (ETM), flight data monitoring (FDM), and fuel management programs. Packaged into a small, lightweight box, the ENode offers a versatile solution for all twin turbine engine aircraft and operators by providing access to timely and actionable information.
The ENode tracks engine parameters and corrects for atmospheric conditions, enabling an analysis and detection tool to monitor and trend the health and stability of your aircraft engine. With the ENode, operators can avoid secondary engine damage, which means less unexpected aircraft downtime, and more time spent in the air. Stay in control of your system status, protect your bottom line, and reduced unexpected maintenance expenditures.
The ENode can either be equipped on its own to capture engine signals—converting to ARINC 429—or mechanically coupled with Latitude’s IONode lightweight flight data recorder, operating with Latitude’s modular system of aircraft communication and monitoring solutions.
The data gathered between the two units seamlessly feed into Latitude Flight Data Analytics (LFDA), which turns your recorded data into actionable information. LFDA offers a complete web-based system for storing, viewing, managing and analyzing flight data to support operations and enable fleet-specific programs.
There are several established service providers for performing engine data analysis, and Latitude will happily work with your existing provider or assist you in selecting one. Our system will format and transmit your data automatically, unburdening your aircrew from error-prone manual reporting, and your maintenance crews from manual data offloads.
Latitude works closely with our industry-leading partner, Spectro | Jet-Care to deliver first class laboratory services for fuel analysis to the aviation industry. Spectro | Jet-Care has been providing comprehensive analysis service to aviation, marine and industrial companies around the world for over 40 years. They save you time in predicting problems before they become apparent, saving you money in avoiding major overhauls and unplanned maintenance.
Supplemental Type Certificates
|STC||Authority||Aircraft Type||Product Availability|
|SA18-121||TCCA||DHC-6 Series 1, 100, 110, 200, 210, 300, 310, 320||ENode|
The ENode has already received certification in fixed-wing Twin Otter aircraft but is suitable for multi-engine aircraft, helicopters, and other airframe applications. Latitude is currently looking for a certification program partnership that works towards building the necessary technical and installation documentation required to establish a supplemental type certificate. Please get in touch if you are interested in exploring an STC partnership with Latitude.
