For use with experimental aircraft only.
With the flip of a switch, this battery operated, hand held unit, displays the actual tire pressure and tire temperature.
Small removable electronic valve sensors transmit pressure/temperature to the LCD monitor within 25-50 feet of the aircraft. The sensors can be easily removed when adding air to the tires, and when placing the sensors back on the valve stems, will send the new pressure readings to the LCD monitor. These sensors replace the standard valve caps and stay on the tires during flight.
05-04367 - 0 to 60 PSI. Temperature range - 50 Centigrade to 145 Centigrade.
05-10769 - 0 to 140 PSI. Temperature range - 50 Centigrade to 145 Centigrade.
The monitor also has an alarm setting for high or low pressure.
The battery has an average life of two years.
The product is warranted for 12 months from the date of purchase.

This Tire Pressure Monitoring System is not FAA Approved and should not be installed on certified aircraft. It is for experimental use only.
Per the supplier: The monitor is about the same size as the iPhone. The sensors are larger than the valve cap. 3/4" diameter x 3/4" long. It is important that there is sufficient clearance for the sensors.
The only documentation available for this system is the manufacturer's C of C. These are intended for experimental aircraft use only. If you would like the C of C, please request it at the time the order is placed.
Per supplier: The unit detects for low pressure by vibration. There is no guarantee it will work during flight or while the gear is retracted. It is made for when the aircraft is on the ground and not during flight.
The tire pressure sensors are small and will fit most wheel pants, because the tire valve stems vary in length it is important to check clearances.
This system takes 2 x AAA batteries.
Each monitor will have a flat battery (CR1632) and usually last 2 years, it just depends on how often the unit is activated.
This unit is priced and sold as the kit shown in photo. You will receive the unit and 3 valves.
The sensors are motion activated by wheel turn or vibration, but actual pressure shown is the wheel pressure.
