OIL QUANTITY SENSOR
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.
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

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.
