With fuel management issues continuing to plague pilot decision making, Radiant Technology introduces Bingo4, a small sender device that fits on the outside of the tank and easily shows the presence of absence of liquid in a tank.
Bingo4 mounts on the outside of many different kinds of tanks. It uses ultrasonic technology to indicate the presence of liquid at the point of attachment. It's the perfect instrument to indicate critical level information of the fluid inside a tank. The sender includes a flashing status LED, best for pilots who can see the tank and sender installation.
An optional panel display is also available that converts the serial data to LED display. With dimensions of 0.6" x 0.7", this display mounts behind the panel, requiring only two holes for the LEDs to poke through. The distance between the sender and the display may be lengthened by using any standard USB cable (not included).
Surprisingly cool. Not very refined - panel pcb is pretty flimsy and wires need to be handled carefully , so I built a bracket out of 1/2 in alum angle. Sensor picks up fuel on a header tank well. Beware, there is a need for a common usb extension cable - not included per manual. I think it’s worthwhile investment to know that I’m down to a 3 gal header tank only.
RADIANT BINGO 4 SENDER WITH USB PORT AND PANEL DISPLAY
Updated: worked like a charm for 6 months. Now flashes red on a full header - traced an issue to colder temps. Will work perfectly in a heated hangar, goes haywire once outside. That’s a big oversight by the manufacturer
