Tank Level Gauge TLG Small, TLGS/INS/RIS

Features and Benefits

  • 180° Viewing Angle
  • I/O Driver For Low Water Warning, Autofill-Hysteresis, Mute Input, Etc.
  • CAN Bus Interface
  • Super Bright LEDs
  • Dimmable-Light Sensor, Backlit
  • Low Installation Depth
  • 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 high. The unit standardly uses a pressure transducer with output 0.5-4.5 V. 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.
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 (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.
Primary / Remote unit self-configuration
Each standard INS-08 indicator can operate as a primary or as a remote. If the indicator detects a pressure sensor (0.5-4.5 or 4-20 mA) the unit will work as a primary indicator. If the indicator is configured for a 0-10V sensor, this is not possible, in this case the indicator is factory-set to primary unit.
Output Driver
Optionally, an I/O driver can be integrated for the low-level warning output, autofill-hysteresis output, mute input, etc.
