RADIANT instrument line combines many functions into simple, small, lightweight units. The instruments utilize sunlight readable full color high contrast LCD screens which are also friendly with sunglasses. Most of these units feature a Belite crafted feature: persistence. This features displays the last history of the information. For example, the last 30 minutes of fuel level information is shown graphically along with the current fuel level. This provides the pilot with the ability to look at information on the display screens and make better informed decisions, as opposed to the lack of history provided by traditional steam gauges.
The RADIANT Single or Dual Tank Fuel Gauge shows current contents of one or two tanks and the system voltage. Time to Empty is automatically calibrated. Shows fuel consumption trend from two tanks over the last 15 minutes.
The picture shows a full left tank and a right tank that has steadily been draining over the last 6 minutes. Voltage is 17.4 volts. Time to Empty is 53 minutes.
Direct sunlight readable (this display is *bright*.) Display is friendly with sunglasses, even polarized sunglasses.
* Single or dual fuel tank display, featuring a visual history of the last 15 minutes of fuel level in each tank.
All instruments are designed for a standard 2.25” cutout, and use approximately 100milliamps of power from a supply of 8 to 14 volts. All instruments are dimmable. Dimmer included.

Horrible. I´m working since 30 years in R&D but have very rarely seen a worse prototype than this gauge. Two 3D-printed haousing halves, not matching, with a gap of 1/10 in between are glued together with nothing but tape! The two halfes are turned for about 5° so it would be even hard to get the screws through it! Between the display and the housing there is a gap of 1/10. I will not even waste a minute in something like this. Not talking to install it in my plane.
