Day Tank Level Monitoring
For tank locations not wired for power or data transfer, a wireless sensor network can gather the tank data and transmit it to a central control location for analysis and logging.
Day tank fill levels are monitored continuously so that materials are maintained at a specific quantity. Because these tanks are slowly filled or depleted, ultrasonic sensors can be used to measure the tank levels without false readings or tank wall interference.
Using a wireless level monitoring system, day tank fill levels are now monitored continuously so that materials are maintained at a specific quantity. Because these tanks are slowly filled or depleted, ultrasonic sensors can be used to measure the tank levels without false readings or tank wall interference.
With a SureCross Wireless Network, FlexPower™ Nodes are deployed at each tank without the need to run cables for power or I/O data transmission. Banner’s unique power management capability enables a Node equipped with a T30UF ultrasonic analog level sensor to operate for years on a single DX81 battery power supply.
Remotely located tank sensor readings can be forwarded to a host system for data tracking, sending e-mail alerts, or to trigger specific events, such as refilling the tank.
Tank resources are only filled when necessary to maintain customer-defined levels. Time is no longer wasted performing routine refills on tanks that did not need to be refilled.
Create point-to-multi point networks that distribute I/O over large areas. Input and output types include discrete (dry contact, PNP/NPN), analog (0 to 10 V dc, 0 to 20 mA), temperature (thermocouple and RTD), and pulse counter.
