Deadman Systems start and stop fuel flow in bottom-loading or underwing fueling operations and are required by N.F.P.A. codes. Electric deadman systems offer reliability, flexibility and minimal maintenance compared to pneumatic or hydraulic systems. When the handle switch is closed, a signal is furnished that can open a valve or start a pump. When the handle switch is released, fuel flow stops.



Durable - Machined from bar stock aircraft aluminum, the Rhino Handle will withstand airfield abuse such as dragging and dropping. A refueler truck drove over it and the Rhino Handle remained serviceable.

Easily Maintained - Repair in the field with a minimum of tools at a low cost.

Weather-Tight - Enclosed in a weather-tight body, the switch is isolated from the atmosphere. Silver inlaid contacts guarantee a longer life. Also, the handle has a gasketed cover plate.

Switch Limit Data - Max: 36 Volts DC/30 Amps
