Beech Bonanza Fuel LevelCiES is rapidly expanding the number of aircraft that can utilize our Fuel Level Sender technology. Today we delivered the first set of Beech Bonanza / Debonair fuel level senders.
This set replaces the Beech original equipment Leigh senders still found in the aircraft. The old senders had long ago given up on providing accurate fuel level.
These new fuel level sender utilize non contact, wear free magnetic field technology to locate the float in the tank. The technology found in CiES Senders is similar to that in your cell phone for it's compass operation. But instead of pointing North in the compass example, the sensor in the CiES Sender points to the float and to an accuracy less than a 1/4 of a degree. It does this accurately and repeatably. You trust your compass to always point North - you'll trust this sender to always tell you how much fuel is in the tank.
The old rusty senders depicted in the pictures utilized continuous wearing potentiometers typically found in legacy General Aviation fuel tanks.
Potentiometer senders have an in aircraft life of approx. 10 to 12 years before replacement or rebuild.
