Default PowerExpander Sport Plus Ignition Cutoff

I recently purchased the PowerExpander Sport Plus Ignition Cutoff for use in my new Hanger 9 Carden YAK 54. It has worked well in the first two fligts, but last night at the field the ignition did not energize. Verfied that the output light on the PowerExpander indicated that the signal was passed to the optical cable. Verified that the battery, connectors and Fromeco Badger switch passed voltage to the ignition card. Verified that the red light was working. Found that the input to the card from the switch was intermittent (i.e., when wiggled, the red light would illuminate). How do I go about getting a replacement for the ignition cutoff?

I didnt want to share my personal information with everyone, so I sent you my address in an email message However, I did want to share how much I appreciate the immediate response and the replacement. Also, I have three PowerExpanders Plus in my planes and I am very happy with them all. Thanks again.

Hi,
You have to cut BOTH ends of the fiber-optic cable to prepare it. They must look round and shiny when viewed end on. This is usually the problem. You can verify the Cutoff receiver unit is working by shining an incandescent flashlight into the fiber-optic receiver.

Hi,
I will have to look if I have any used units that work. I am sorry someone stole it but I cannot give away new units.
