Belite Updates Fuel Probe Design to offer greater accuracy
Belite's fuel probe system measures the quantity of fuel in tank by ascertaining the weight of the fuel column. First introduced nearly 3 years ago, the product has proven popular in a variety of fuel system implementations.
"We are now offering fuel sensors with a scale accuracy of 0.5%", said James Wiebe, CEO of Belite. "Our prior sensors had an accuracy of 1.0%. We've also improved the accuracy of the fuel probe controller." (Probe accuracy is one component of total system accuracy. Contact us with questions.)
The probe systems are ideal for fuel measurements with deeper tanks (> 12") where capacitive and resistive probes are problematic. They are offered with a 1/8 NPT fitting, and a 1/4 NPT adapter is optional ($5.00).
Reflective of the higher accuracy, pricing is rising on Feb. 1 to $249.95 per probe from the current price of $199.95. Belite will honor existing pricing for the remainder of the month of January.
The Belite liquid level / fuel probe system is designed to sense fuel or liquid level of any type and provide an electrical indication to instrumentation along a range of 0 to 5 volts. The unit is not TSO’d or PMA’d. Use only in appropriate aircraft as a backup to certified instruments and pilot calculations. Ideal for monitoring level of liquid in many other applications, such as agricultural spraying. Patent pending.
The Fuel probe System work with any of our LED or RADIANT Fuel Gauges.
The System without computer works only with our RADIANT LIQUID LEVEL FUEL GAUGE.
