FADEC Service Link

  • A FADEC Service Link uses the DA42 CD-135 engine diagnostic port to download FADEC data and can be used to help with remote diagnosis of a problem.
  • Say you are at a remote airport and experience an issue that is not covered by the POH, such as e.g. RPM variations or warning annunciations that don’t seem to make sense but need to be understood and resolved before you can continue to fly.
    Please note that a computer with USB port will be needed to retrieve the resulting text files from the SD card that can then e-mailed for analysis.
  • You can find it – along with instructions – in the small storage compartment right behind the back seats.

Remember to reconnect the CAN-bus terminator after using the Service Link!
