The refuel defuel control panel (RDCP) displays the fuel quantity for each tank, total on-board quantity, and warning status such as tank overfill. In addition, the RDCP is capable of automatic refuel, manual refuel, defuel, and transfer operations.
The amount of fuel required to refuel the aircraft is input using PRESEL (pre-select) on the front panel. The RDCP, together with the associated fuel computer, tests the functionality of the refuel valves and high level sensors when commanded to perform a “pre check” using the SOV TEST switch position. The refuel panel supports automatic and manual refueling, as well as defueling.
Long recognized as a leading provider of innovative control applications and gauging solutions, Parker’s fuel measurement and management systems and components reduce weight and save fuel while minimizing costs and maximizing efficiency. The RDCP is powered by 28 volts.
