The ATS E50A Magneto Synchronizer is a modern redesign of the classic test instrument used by aviation mechanics around the world for over 50 years. It uses surface-mounted (SMD) micro-circuitry to eliminate the need for the bulky vibrator, and heavy transformers. The new technology of the E50A uses low voltage signals to measure the inductance of the magneto and precisely detect the moment the points break, without any false readings.
The ATS E50A also features enhancements to make your job easier, such as a Built-In Calibrated Test Point to validate your tester before each use; a battery monitor to give you plenty of warning before your tester runs out of power; and Quiet-Mode operation that alerts you only when the points break - so no more annoying "buzz-box" always screaming at you when you're trying to do a test.
Very nice product ,quick shipping,great company to work with.
E50A MAGNETO TIMING LIGHT
This timing light is very well made and works as advertised. If I had any complaint, it would be that when I received it the battery was not wrapped in anything and banging around loose inside the device. Nothing was damaged, but could have been. Very poorly packaged.
excellent. It was out of stock when I ordered it and it arrived before the identified time. Great service!
I have used this exact make and model timing instrument for over forty years and when leaking battery caused problems, i looked for and replaced it with the same E50 that has only changed their tone of alert as far as I can tell, all else is identical. I have every confidence that the new one will still be working when Im gone in another forty years or so.
Veru easy to use, just bought this item, and it works as advertised. Checked my Bendix mags on my IO-540 Lycoming and both were sycro'ed nearly perfectly after using the E50.
Arrived working and seems like a good unit. However I am docking 2 stars for the way it was shipped. The 9volt battery was bouncing around lose in the unit. Surprised it didn’t damage the board.
When I opened the box, I heard a rattle. Upon opening the timing light box, I found one of the nuts that hold the board to the face was loose & not fastened. I fastened the nut, turned the unit on, and it appeared to work. I have not used it yet.
