The original Olympus design was redesigned in 2004 to the HP version, in 2010 the engine is converted to a direct kerosene starting system. The engine is highly used in the "model jet scene" but also professionals are using the Olympus HP. A spinoff of the Olympus HP is being certified by EASA for the use as a "bringing home device" for a full size glider. For universities a "special" layout is available with measuring points (see Images). Electronic Control Unit
AMT Netherlands developed in house a fully automatic ECU to control the turbine, main reason for this development was that there was a need for fully automatic starting turbines. The latest update was to comply with the latest AMA requirements, with this software update (V29) we made it also possible to use lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries without changing anything to the settings of the ECU. The lithium polymer batteries are available for all our engine types.
* One or Two channel operation. * ECU works on 10 cell Nicad or 4 cell Lipo. * Output for fuel solenoid valve. * Output for propane solenoid valve. * Output for glow plug. * Output for E-starter. * Programmable failsafe timer, standard set to 1 second delay before full stop. * Log file of last 22 min, of run @ 1 seconds interval. * At error, last 8 sec. log is available in 0.2 sec intervals. * Serial 2400 Baud, rs232 level output. * Weight 160 gram / 5,4 oz. * Fuzzy logic software, for fast throttle response. * No adjustments needed. * Ridged small ECU housing. * All high quality cables with gold plated connectors. * Standard "K type" EGT probe connector.
