The ASI-4 is a 2 1/4” sunlight readable instrument that provides a wide range airspeed indication in both digital and analog tape formats. Airspeed is based on the pressure generated by a pitot tube system and a static port is provided as well for use by high speed aircraft. In addition, the ASI-4 provides a flight timer since takeoff and records the maximum airspeed reached.

Airspeed can be indicated in statute miles per hour (mph), kilometers per hour (km/h) or nautical miles per hour (kts). The analog airspeed tape can be scaled according to the aircraft’s flying speed range and ranges for Vs0, Vs1, Vfe, Vno and Vne can be set. The ASI-4 also provides a programmable Vs and Vne airspeed alarm output. ASI sensitivity can be calibrated by the user to cater for errors caused by pitot tube placement.

The ASI-4 instrument measures airspeed from 16mph to 250mph and is well suited to slower aircraft due to very good sensitivity and linearity at low air speeds.

FF4 Screens

 

The FF-4 is a 2 1/4” sunlight readable color display instrument intended for efficient monitoring of fuel related information for single or dual fuel tanks. The FF-4 has many display configurations based on single/dual flow senders, single/dual level senders and a fuel pressure sender.

Full functionality is available with a fuel flow and level sender or only with a fuel flow sender using calculated fuel levels based on fuel usage. Differential fuel flow calculations are also supported for fuel return systems. Fuel injector systems are also supported. Standard automotive fuel level senders can be used, even with odd shaped tanks due to a comprehensive, multi-point calibration system. Most fuel flow senders can be used as the K-factor of the sender can be entered into the system for simple calibration.

MGL Avionics supplies a lightweight dual range fuel flow sender that is ideally suited for the FF-4. Fuel flow senders from other manufactures (e.g. Floscan) are equally suitable.

In addition, the FF-4 can use the actual ground speed from a RS232 NMEA enabled GPS receiver to determine fuel range.

The FF-4 can also be interfaced via the CAN bus to an external RDAC unit (Remote Data Acquisition Unit). This allows for easier installation as the RDAC unit is normally mounted in the engine compartment.

Features:

  • 1.8” high resolution 160x128, sunlight readable, wide viewing angle, 1000 cd/m2 TFT LCD display

  • Advanced fuel computer with various modes of operation

  • Supports single or dual fuel tanks
