FP-5L

STC’d and PMA’d.
The FP-5L is the most versatile fuel computer in the industry


Overview


FP-5L Overview

What are the FP-5 and FP-5L? These instruments are the industry’s premium digital fuel flow monitors. Many fuel flow monitors are either quick to respond and unstable, or stable but very sluggish in response to mixture control adjustments. The FP-5 and FP-5L use special proprietary algorithms, which enable the instruments to display fuel flow that is rock solid, yet responds instantly to the slightest mixture change.

Not only are the FP-5 and FP-5L outstanding examples of precision craftsmanship, but the flow transducers that provide the instruments with flow information are literally hand assembled by Electronics International’s skilled technicians, ensuring every component of the transducer is finely tuned and balanced. This kind of obsessive attention to quality is one of the many things that sets our company apart from the rest, and is the reason why our flow transducers are used throughout the aviation industry.

FL-5L FUNCTIONS


Functions

Fuel Flow

Accurate, Stable Fuel Flow with a resolution of .1 GPH. Flow can be easily set to disply in British Gallons, Lbs, Liters, or Gallons.

Horsepower

Horsepower is based on fuel flow, and is accurate up to the leaning process (add an FM-T to the Auxiliary Channel for accuracy througout all operations). This function can be set to read in percentage or raw Horsepower.

Fuel Remaining

The FP-5 and FP-5L calculate the fuel remaining in your tanks with a .1 Gallon resolution. Two programmable “Default Full Fuel” levels allow you to quickly reset the instrument to “Full” every time you fill your tanks. Alarms will alert you when you’ve reached programmed limits for remaining fuel.

Fuel Used

Fuel Used during the current flight, as well as fuel used since your fill up is kept track of to the tenth of a gallon.

Time to Empty

Time to Empty is based on Fuel Remaining and the current Fuel Flow. An alarm will alert you when you’ve reached a programmable limit.

Miles Per Gallon

Accurately keeps track of your gas mileage. This function can be displayed in Statute or Nautical Miles per Gallon.

Auxiliary Channel

The Auxiliary Channel offers a whole other instrument option by displaying one of several different functions available. Programmable upper and lower limits mean the instrument will alert you when the monitored Auxiliary function exceeds a programmed limit. The options include EGT, CHT, TIT, OAT, Carb Temp, Oil Temp, Manifold Pressure, RPM, Volts, Amps, Gyro Vacuum, Fuel Pressure or Oil Pressure. See the Function Modules section for more details.

Recurring Fuel Used Alarm

The Recurring Fuel Used Alarm can be set for any whole number of gallons used, alerting you to change tanks at a programmable interval of gallons used. This is an excellent tool for fuel tank management.

Intensity Control

Independent control lines allow pilots to adjust the intensity of both the Green Indicator Lights and the LCD Backlight during instrument operations.

Red Low Fuel Warning LED

This LED will blink any time the programmed First or Second Low Fuel Limit, Time to Empty Limit or Reocurring Alarm is reached. When displayed, the red LED is always at full intensity and will flash during instrument power-up.

FL-5L AUXILIARY CHANNEL


Auxiliary Channel

The FP-5(L)’s Auxiliary Channeloffers a whole other instrument option by displaying one of several different functions available. Programmable upper and lower limits mean the instrument will alert you when the monitored Auxiliary function exceeds a programmed limit. The options include any Temperature, Manifold Pressure, RPM, Volts, Amps, Gyro Vacuum, Fuel Pressure or Oil Pressure. See the main Function Modules section for more details.

Temperature

The FM-Temp allows pilots to monitor virtually any aircraft temperature they desire. Common temperatures include EGT, CHT, TIT, Carb Temp and Outside Air Temp. Be sure to specify which temperature you would like to monitor when ordering. The stable, one degree resolution of the temperatures is the same hallmark of precision and quality you would expect from any of Electronics Internaitonal’s products. The FM-Temp inclues the module, a Temperature Probe (specify when ordering), a Wire Harness and Instructions. For more details on available temps to monitor, see the main “Temperature Probes” page.

Volts/Amps

The FM-VA-XX allows pilots to monitor both Volts to .1 volts and Amps to .1 amps, although if you desire to only use one UBG-16 channel, you can opt to monitor only one of the two functions. The FM-VA packages includes the module, an S-50 Shunt, Voltage Pickup Leads, Wire Harness and Instructions.
