To check the hydraulic fluid or fuel from outside the tank, fuel level sensing technologies is an ideal one. Through mobile applications, the fuel level can be tracked and identified effectively. There are many different models of fuel level sensing devices are successfully operated to save fuel from thefts. If you operate a fleet of vehicles at different geographic locations then such sensors prevent fuel theft and monitor unauthorized access to fuel tanks.
Why go for fuel level sensors?
Sensing a fluid level in a stationary tank is complex in the vehicle industry to ensure safe operations. Fuel level sensor has specific features to detect the possible leakage and prevent the vehicle, people, and environment from damages. The technology is highly durable and bounds with the high-resolution technology to find the liquid level.
Models of fuel sensors are highly adaptable to linearize levels measurements. It produces high-level accuracy readings across a wide temperature range. Fuel level sensors mounted with real-time analog and electric connections with the fuel management system. The device is ideal to perform aeration and de-aeration procession any fuel functioning vehicles.
Here are some features that will accompany a fuel level sensor for your fleet of vehicles.
1 – Simple Installation process
The independent sensor can be installed easily in fuel functioning vehicles from outside the tank. The sensor form the device should be glued on the bottom of the fuel tank. The device will come with the calibration only. Modification of the tank is not necessary and the sensor doesn’t create direct contact with the fuel inside the tank.
The fuel sensors should be placed properly with required electric connection helps to detect the fuel level in the tank. Installation of fuel level sensor is possible on separator large fuel tanks also. No need to drain the fuel tank to install the sensor in the tank.
2 – Monitoring the fuel temperature
Most fleet clients look for the fuel level sensors to monitor the fuel temperature in the vehicle daily. But the updated model fuel level sensors are there by default to monitor and control the fuel temperature in the connected vehicle. Temperature sensors built to function as per real-time operations to allow compensation on fuel-level changes.
Based on ambient temperature, automatic compensation will be configurable in the device. Thermal imaging glass on tanks will maximize the area that they monitored and resembles that unparalleled internal temperature. Temperature alarm resembles the changes in temperature to avoid temperature-related false alarms.
3 – Mounting sets promotes the quick installation
Mounting sets in fuel level sensors come with the original installation kit to promote a quick installation process. The entire tool kit contains every tool required to configure and install the sensor device in the fuel tank. Especially this tool kit is effective to set the location of the sensor during the installation process.
Mounting is a process of configuring the sensor into the hole on sealing hole plates to match and lock the device. Connection cables, drivers to operate bolts and screws also included on the toolset. Sealing the special holes on the plate can be easily done by using this tool kit.
4 – Spring catch and bottom filter
The bottom Spring catch in the fuel level sensor is used to ensure the fixed positioning of the sensor after it mounted on the fuel tank. This way, even if the vehicle is moving at high speed the sensor will not be knocked off its position and continue delivering optimum performance. It works on the independent fuel level sensor to decrease the influence of fuel level fluctuations based on the accuracy of the measurement.
Especially in severe conditions on fluctuations, a spring stop catch saves the sensor from false fluctuations. The issues with accumulated dirt and water on the fuel tank will not affect the sensors in the device. Even minor fluctuations from the sensor device can be identified and effectively read to eliminate problems in the fuel management system.
5 – Long term warranty from certified certifications
To install the fuel level sensors on the fuel tank, there are some certified rules and regulations that accompany the product. Especially, the product should be certified to work under high thermal pressure and is resistant to an explosion near the fuel tank.
After the manufacturing process, the fuel level sensor device will undertake to check the quality and compatibility of the device. With high quality technical support and training the durability of the device can be found and mentioned on the certificate. Even the detailed manuals will come with the certifications to install the device with safety precautions. The technical functioning of the fuel level will examine and explain the manuals.
6 – Integrated use of blended technology
Telematics is a term used to explain the combining functioning of both telecommunications and informatics. This system is integrated into the fuel management system to transmit the tracked details for objective through a network. Data transmission from this integrated system will be passed to the connected advanced applications to handle fuel information. It works based on real-time and off time to generate the report from the monitored details.
This system is implemented with the GSM/GPRS options to communicate with the server from moving locations. The fleet operator can also be tracked by this system by knowing stopping, idle mode and speed, acceleration taken by a driver, whether the vehicle is in On/Off mode. Through the GPRS communication system, directing the vehicle is possible.
On a web page or application, the owner can check fuel status and real-time occurrences of fuel pilfering and fuel theft.
Ridesharing companies and fleet owners are most preferred to use this fuel level sensor to potentially improve business efficiency by controlling fuel costs. Furthermore, with the capability of telematics on the system, an individual connected vehicle can be saved from unauthorized uses.
