This was fairly novel in that it used a vibrating metal vane rather than a rotor to measure the rate of fuel flow. The rate of vibration would be modified by the fuel flowing across it in a ratio proportional to the flow of fuel, and the varying vibration frequency was sensed and converted to a signal that could be used in further real time calculations and indications. My recollection is that the item proved to be either unsuitable, unreliable or not viable for full scale production. Perhaps a more traditional solution proved more suitable.
