The Aviation Consumer, Product of the Year, the FS-450 is the top choice because it has all the options you need for fuel management.
The JPI Fuel Scan-450 features a dual display, always
showing your fuel flow rates on the upper display and other measurements on
the bottom. The scan rate to display these measurements can be adjusted at a
user selected rate. Every Fuel Scan-450 will interface with your panel mount
or hand-held GPS. There are no extra options to purchase. FAA, TSO approved.
Accuracy: The Fuel Scan-450 relies on two very reliable fuel
flow sensors. Each sensor is mounted in the fuel line prior to the fuel
distributor or carburetor and measures the actual fuel flowing through the
line. Inside the sensor is a turbine wheel that rotates at a rate proportional
to the instantaneous amount of fuel passing through it. The rotating turbine
interrupts a light beam and an optical sensor counts the pulses of the
interrupted beam. A microprocessor in the Fuel Scan-450 counts the pulses and
converts the count to fuel flow. The Fuel Scan-450 will also track the total
fuel used and the fuel remaining.** FS-450000-R and FS-450000-H Ship in 5-10 Business Days.
