Tank Level Gauge TLGS 20 GEN3

Features and Benefits

  • Super Bright 2 ½ -Digit LED Display
  • I/O Driver for Low-Water Warning, Autofill-Hysteresis, Mute input, Etc.
  • CAN Bus interface
  • Dimmable-Light Sensor
  • Multiple sensor input
  • Wide Viewing Angle
  • Low Installation Depth
INS-20 types of Tank Level Gauges are designed to display liquid’s volume at an accuracy of 1/20 (5%) of the tank level, using ultra-bright 7-segment LED Displays. 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 pressure transducer with an output 0.5-4.5 V by which also broken sensor cable can be detected. The sensor input is widely configurable and can also be used for 0-10 V or 4-20 mA output signal.
Optionally, an 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 – remote indicators (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.
