The ropeFuel Sensor is a float-type liquid level Sensor, used to monitor the fuel level in your storage tank. If your business infrastructure relies on backup generators, the chances are you are also relying on fuel to power those. By using the Fuel Level sensor you can ensure that your tanks are filled and ready for the most critical moments.
The sensor can be used ONLY ONCE. Etc. In case of contact with oil the sensor can NOT be cleaned. He needs to be replaced.
The intelligent sensor port powers the sensor. It is compatible with any of the securityProbe series base units, or the E-sensor 8 expansion modules. You can instantly be alerted should there be any drop below critical levels in your fuel. Advance alerting of possible fuel leaks or theft will ensure your tanks never run dry again.
- Ideal for remote sites that depend on backup generator power
- Normal, Low and Critical alerting
- Easy setup and installation
- Can monitor several liquids, including fuel, oil and water
- Monitor your tanks for critically low levels of fuel
- Powered by the securityProbe, no additional power required
Setup is simple, with the securityProbe autosense function and a simple 2-step calibration. Unlike other liquid float level sensors, calibration is performed to the sensor prior to mounting. No need to fill your tanks with water in order to calibrate the sensor, saving time, and mitigating harm to your engine caused by water left in the tanks.
Mounting the float assembly in the tank requires a 1.5 diameter hole to be drilled in the top of an empty tank. Clean the debris and then screw the self-sealing assembly into the hole. The sensor comes with a 40ft (10.2 meter) weatherproof cable that connects the float level assembly to the sensor adapter.
Custom lengths of up to 2,300ft (700 meters) are available upon request. A supplied 5ft CAT5 cable links the sensor adapter to the securityProbe base unit. This is extendable up to 100ft (30 meters) using standard CAT5 Ethernet cable
AKCP ropeFuel Sensor
As this sensor is a rope type it is perfect for lying beneath fuel tanks, usually found being used with diesel generators in remote locations where early warning of fuel leakage or theft is vital to maintaining the power supply, either of a UPS or as the main power source.
