The Belite fuel gauge also indicates fuel use trend.

Belite announces new Radiant instruments and probes for LSA, experimental and ultralights

Belite continues its tradition of developing innovative lightweight instruments for Experimental, LSA and Ultralight Aircraft. Belite's new RADIANT instrument line combines many functions into simple, small, lightweight units. The new instruments utilize sunlight readable high contrast color LCD screens which are also friendly with sunglasses. Most of these new units feature a Belite crafted feature: persistence. This feature shows recent history. For example, the last 15 minutes of fuel level information is shown graphically along with the current fuel level. This provides the pilot with the ability to look at the fuel use trend and make better decisions. Traditional steam gauge instruments and other glass panel products don't have this valuable feature.

Belite also introduces its new Capacitance Fuel Probe. Unlike most competitive products, this new fuel probe supports multiple bending, allowing it to fit into any shape of tank. Even with many bends, it is designed not to short out and fail. It also features easy calibration via pushbuttons. It is available in any length from 6” to 40”.

“These products were specifically designed for experimental and LSA category aircraft,” said James Wiebe, CEO of Belite Electronics. “The Radiant displays are smaller, lighter, more brilliant and more functional than other aircraft instruments and will provide the experimental aircraft builder or LSA manufacturer the ability to supply more functionality with less weight than competing products, while the new

Capacitive Fuel Probe allows accurate fuel monitoring in of fuel level in each tank.

Other instruments will be announced at OshKosh.

All instruments are designed for a standard 2.25” cutout, and use approximately 135 milliamps of power from a supply of 8 to 14 volts. All instruments are dimmable.
