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 scaling 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.

PLEASE READ below before ORDERING!

 

INSTALLING the OIL QUANTITY SENSOR (from the TOP or Up-Side-Down)

You may install the sensor from the top side of your oil pan or oil container but, . . Please be aware of two situations.

 

First, please understand that the temperature sensor is mounted in the base of the sensor. This being the case, it will not function properly because it will not be immersed in the oil unless the oil tank is always full.  (For the future, we are working on a design that may be used if you desire to mount this sensor from the oil container top.)

 

Second, also be aware that when you calibrate the oil quantity sensor amounts by adding your quarts of oil, the sensor may not sense your lowest oil level. If this is the case, your sensor tip may not extend into the oil at the very bottom of your oil pan when adding your first quart. The oil level must be between the sensor base and the sensor tip for the first "quantity" of oil. If this is the case, you might try adding two quarts as your "increment" instead of a one quart increment. This may allow you to get the oil level beyond the tip of the inverted sensor.  It is up to the installer/customer to determine where your lowest oil level is for your installation for an inverted sensor 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.
