Signal Conditioner Unit (SCU)

Overview

The Signal Conditioner Unit’s (SCU) basic function is to excite the fuel probes, compensator, and temperature sensors and scale the return signals. Each SCU can interface with up to eight (8) fuel probes with temperature detection and/or fuel probes with compensators. It will process capacitive and resistive readings to determine the fuel heights for each probe and transmit the calculated fuel volume to the cockpit.
