ARP Carb ICE Dectector UM 107AP 12V

CARBURETOR ICE of the is one most dangerous as well as most common problems that pilots encounter because it can strike anyone just about anywhere during all phases of flight.

ARP CARBURETOR-ICE DETECTION SYSTEMS are made in USA and have been in service since 1967. In fact, ARPs carburetor-ice detectors are the Original optical detectors on the market. They are available in three (3) different mounting configurations (Panel Mount, Remote Mount and Universal Mount) thus providing flexibility for any aircraft installation.

DETECTS FROST / ICE CRYSTAL (NOT TEMPERATURE) by placing an optical probe upstream in the most ice prone area of the carburetor air stream the carburetor venturi. ARP carburetor-ice detectors detects actual frost / ice crystal formation well in advance before any problems can occur. This type of system is much more reliable than temperature indicators which cannot compensate for temperature / moisture ratios.

GIVES UP TO 5 MINUTES WARNING TIME by illuminating a RED visual ice warning light once ice formation occurs inside the carburetor thus providing the pilot sufficient time to apply carburetor heat before loss of engine performance.

HIGHLY RELIABLE with over 30 years of proven field performance.

LIGHT WEIGHT less than 13 ounces thus no impact on weight and balance.

SIMPLIFIED INSTALLATION keeps installation cost down approximately 1 to 3 man-hours.

TWIN ENGINE APPLICATIONS are achieved by using individual ice detector systems for each engine.

SAVES FUEL by avoiding unnecessary use of carburetor heat.

WARRANTY 3-Years on Electronics Box and 1-Year on Probe.
