AC Fuel Probes
The LMS Composite Fuel Quantity Probes with AC Systems are made with lightweight and durable graphite composite. They are the lightest fuel probe available in the industry and virtually immune to corrosion, cracking, dents or other field maltreatment. In fact, LMS has delivered over 6,200 graphite composite fuel quantity probes to the field, operating with no field failures in a wide variety of both commercial and military aircraft.
Graphite Composite Construction
The LMS Composite Fuel Probe weighs approximately half that of a similar metal probe. For example, a 38” long LMS composite probe now in production (with cable) weighs less than 10 ounces.
All electrical connections to the capacitance probe, from the interface connector to the actual probe tubes, make use of soldered or composite bonded electrical connections. There is no friction or riveted electrical connections on the LMS Composite Fuel Probe and all electrical terminations are sealed from the fuel environment.
