The Gill Sensors range of miniature fuel-, oil- and coolant-level sensors incorporate micro-electronics making them especially suited to smaller unmanned systems applications.

Utilising advanced solid-state capacitive technology, the integrated electronics provide a fully configurable analogue output accurate to 0.25 per cent of the tank depth.

A data logger uses the output from the sensor and the tank profile mapping to convert level into volume.

Information on the actual volume of fuel available is then sent to the operator as part of the flight communications.

Each sensor is custom-designed to suit the specific requirements of the application to ensure optimum performance without the need to extensively modify existing system components.

This makes the sensors equally suited to vehicle upgrades or for specification on new developments.

Keeping the overall vehicle weight to a minimum is important and the sensors typically feature titanium and carbon-fibre components to ensure that the mass of the sensor has minimal impact on the vehicle operation.

Sensor length can be as little as 20mm, allowing for precision monitoring of small reservoirs.

Environmentally protected to IP68, Gill’s miniature sensors are suitable for full submersion in aviation-grade fuel, oil or coolant and are rated for operation from -40 to 125C.

Sensors can be ordered with an integral connector or flying leads and will meet the most stringent military EMC requirements.
