OIL  QUANTITY  SENSOR  OVERVIEW

This oil quantity sensor with its associated electronics package will give the pilot a real time oil quantity while in flight or on the ground. This system is not meant to replace any other traditional methods of checking oil quantity. It is a new device that the pilot of a small aircraft can use in flight that he or she never had before. It will also measure oil temperature if that option was selected at purchase. The electronics enclosure features two analog outputs, one for oil quantity and the other for oil temperature. It also features a four digital output alarms (open collector type) for sensor malfunction, oil level warning, oil level caution, and over oil temperature. You may program the alarm trigger values for those outputs and choose a scale for both analog outputs.

 

Presently, we have two types of oil sensors available, one for standard Lycoming engine oil pan fittings and the other for standard Continental engine oil pan fittings. The sensor will fit quite a number of engines, oil pans, oil sumps and oil containers. Presently, the length of sensors are custom built. The sensor's length must be determined by the customer at the time of purchase. Later, we plan to build them up ahead of time as we create a database of standard lengths ordered. A list of our available sensor fittings will be available in the purchase area on our Website. Sensors with other fitting types may already be in our design schedule.

INSTALLING the OIL QUANTITY SENSOR (from the TOP)

You may install the sensor from the top of your oil pan or oil container. Please be aware of two situations. First, the temperature sensor is mounted in the base of the sensor. This being the case, it will not give you an accurate oil temperature because it will not be immersed in the oil when less than full. Second, also be aware that when you calibrate the sensor by adding your quarts of oil, the sensor may not sense your lowest oil level. This is because your sensor tip may not extend to the bottom of your oil pan. For the sensor to be accurately calibrated, when you add your first quart of oil, the oil level must be between the sensor base and the sensor tip. If it is not, you might choose adding two quarts as your increment instead of a one quart increment. This may allow the oil level to be in between the sensor base and the sensor tip. It is up to the installer of customer to determine where your lowest oil level is for your installation.

 

WILL this  OIL  SENSOR  FIT?

We would like to make certain that the sensor that you order will fit your aircraft.  If you order one of our standard available sensors, and never had oil in it, or scars from installation, we may be able to refund your money if you make a mistake ordering.  However, if you order a custom made sensor and find that it does not fit, we will not be able to refund your money for the sensor portion of your order.
