Wireless Tank Level Analysis in Unsafe or Harsh Conditions

Wireless Tank Level Analysis in Unsafe or Harsh Conditions Image

Application: Continuously analyzing large tanks

Challenges: Hazardous conditions are present

Solution: SureCross DX99 Wireless FlexPower Nodes

Benefits: Intrinsically safe and wireless

Holding and Storage tanks must be continuously analyzed for various parameters, including temperature, pressure, flow, pH, conductivity, or liquid levels.


Banner’s SureCross DX99 wireless FlexPower Nodes offer Class I, II, and III, Division 1 and Zone 0 certifications for installations requiring Intrinsically Safe operation.

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 pressure sensor to operate for years on a single DX81 battery power supply.

A DX80 FlexPower Node offers a combination of discrete and analog I/O in a single package, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual data collection. Tank levels can be monitored with an ultrasonic sensor wired to an analog input. Alarms or setpoints can be announced with an EZ-LIGHT on the discrete outputs. Remotely located tank sensor readings can be collected by the DX80 Gateway Pro for data tracking, sending e-mail alerts, or to trigger specific events.
