Flow Transducer. For use in Aircraft with engine-driven fuel pumps & Horsepower up to 350 HP.
E.I. products include all documentation and certifications
I replaced my existing FT60 transducer due to erroneous readings. It would drop to zero for several minutes then begin reading again. The replacement works the way it should.
The right part at a fair price.
In any fuel flow operating system, the EI series fuel flow cubes are as close to plug and play that you can get. A bit more expensive, but easy to install and electronically set up. Just keep the fuel lines fairly straight for a few inches per the instructions and it will work. I even use the EI FT60 in the return line of the Rotax 912S as it is quite accurate even at such a low return fuel flow rate.
Awesome. Works great with my FC-10 in my Legend cub. Called the company who makes it and they were so helpful. Spruce shipped it last minute... Great experience all around.
First one lasted 600 hours the replacement 40 hours, Fortunately EI support is excellent and they replaced last one under warranty since it was less than 1 year old. When they worked they were always very accurate. For me, when they fail they do it suddenly. Would be 5 stars if it was anywhere near the published 10000 MTBR!
Received and installed in place of unit that died after 33 hours into its 10,000 MTBF that EI doesnt support. So far, this replacement is working. Lets see how long this one lasts.
The sending unit works well when it works, but it seems that I have to clean it out on a yearly basis.
Installing my third unit in 600 hrs. Just a little less than the 10000 mtbf that they advertise. Probably get that in a comfy lab. Seems like it isnt robust enough to survive in a engine compartment environment. Gotta have it though....
Nowhere near the MTBF of 10,000 hours, even 1000 hours would have been acceptable. The second to the last worked for a few hundred hours and then became unusable due to increasing flow rate error (sometimes high, sometimes low). The next one worked for 200- 250 hours and then completely went dead with no output signal. Now on third one in four years, they manage to break right after warranty period. The transducers are placed near air inlet so lead a pretty easy life as far as thermal stress. The actual cost on these runs about 75 cents an hour, at that rate we actually needed to explicitly build them into the operating cost. Also, the 12 cable is worthless and always leads to an extra connection or splice. For the extra few dollars it would cost, EI should put on a decent length cable of at least 36.
The warranty is 1 year and can only be returned to us with in 30 days not installed (new condition). If you need to confirm the FT 60 will work please let us know your engine make or model or contact EI.
The FT60 is to be used in an aircraft with engine-driven fuel pump & Horsepower up to 350 HP. For gravity fed systems, please see the FT90 part #10-01224.
The EI Fuel Flow Transducer FT 60 has two female 1/4" NPT (national pipe thread) ports. Adapters are also available to fit 1/4" NPT threads.
Part number 10-01165 and Part number 10-01196 are exactly the same part. Dynon uses the EI FT 60 for their systems.
Per EI, this would work.
Yes the transducer will always need to go downstream and before the servo is fine.
Yes, the EI FT60 uses 1/4" NPT fittings and wires needed to connect to your electrical system.
There is no wiring diagram available at this time. The red wire is +5V power, black is ground and the white wire is signal.
The FT-60 receives its power from the instrument it is connected to. Both 12 and 24V systems are compatible with this transducer.
There are short wires included which you will need to splice to connect with the gauge.
