In aviation every pound counts. We at LMS have developed innovative technology that performs at a superior level. By stripping away every unnecessary ounce, all of our products improve the performance, safety, and reliability of our customer’s aircraft. Our Carbon Composite Fuel Probe weighs approximately half as much as a similar metal probe and is far more durable.
Our 38” long composite probe with cable weighs less than 10 ounces – half what a metal probe weighs.
Safety is our number one priority. Our products take an innovative approach to reducing conductive metal in fuel tanks, reducing the amount of electricity required to read fuel, and preventing stray voltage from entering a fuel cell. Our systems are SFAR-88, DO-160, DO-178 compliant and exceed the strictest safety standards for both civilian and military aircraft. LMS probes are the strongest and most resilient ever made; yet, in a crash or hard landing our carbon composite probes are designed to crush rather than puncture the fuel cell. Supporting the goal of fuel containment is a major reason customers choose LMS probes.
Instrumentation you can count on increases a mission’s effectiveness and can save lives. LMS gives you the most accurate measurement of useable fuel in the industry. Our advanced designs compensate for fuel temperatures, aircraft attitude and fuel slosh. Our fuel probes have an integrated Faraday cage to shield against EMI.
LMS’ fuel gauging technology delivers the best value in the market by virtually eliminating installation and maintenance costs, for savings that keep adding up over the life cycle of each aircraft you build or maintain. Our parts arrive pre-calibrated from the factory, which translates to shorter and more predictable installation times and calibration you can count on. LMS components are engineered and manufactured to stand up to the most adverse conditions, requiring no regular maintenance or regular inspections.
