Tank Level Gauge TLG Small, TLGS-08/INS-08/RIS-08

Features and Benefits

  • 160° Viewing Angle
  • I/O Driver For Low Water Warning, Autofill-Hysteresis, Mute Input, Large Light Driver, Etc.
  • CAN Bus or 1 Wire DatalingInterface
  • Super Bright LEDs
  • Dimmable-Light Sensor, Backlit
  • Multiple Sensor input
INS-08 types of Tank Level Gauges are designed to display liquid’s volume at an accuracy of 1/8 of the tank level using ultra-bright LEDs. The transducer measures the column of the liquid in the tank above the sensor process input and provides a signal that is proportional to the tank height. The unit standardly uses a pressure transducer with output 0.5-4.5 V by which we can detect also broken sensor cable. The sensor input is widely configurable and it can also be used for 0-10 V transducers, 4-20 mA transmitters or even resistive probe.
Optional I/O driver can be integrated for low level warning output, autofill-hysteresis output, mute input, etc. The Tank Level Gauge can be used as a stand-alone system or as a part of MMX system connected via CAN bus to IO Controller. Several slave indicators (small remote – RIS) can be connected to a master indicator INS to show the same value on different locations or in combination with a XL remote indicator (RIXL) for the vehicle sides.
