Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter – Pune Techtrol

Pune, Maharashtra, India
Make: Pune Techtrol
Instrument Type: Transmitter
Application: Liquid

Introducing the Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter – an innovative level monitoring solution that employs advanced microcontroller technology to accurately gauge fuel levels in both vehicles and DG sets.

This level transmitter operates without any cumbersome moving parts and delivers real-time digital readings for both local and remote monitoring via telematics.

The Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter operates using a sensing and ground concentric electrode, accompanied by integral electronics housed in a cast aluminum enclosure. The probe is mounted on top with threaded or flanged process connections for ease of installation.

As the liquid level changes, the capacitance formed between the sensing and ground electrodes also changes proportionally. This change is then sensed and converted into a 4-20mA analog output, providing accurate and reliable level readings.


The salient features of the Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter:

  • Compact microcontroller-based design
  • Low power consumption
  • High resolution
  • Construction to suit turbulence
  • Easy calibration via push-buttons
  • Probe length field reducible through the cut-off

Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter Installation

Select a suitable location for the probe on the tank where the fluid flow is minimal and the likelihood of turbulence is low. This will help prevent external factors from affecting the accuracy of the readings.

Capacitance Fuel Level Transmitter Installation

Ensure that the probe is mounted in a position that prevents direct material flow impact, which may potentially cause damage to the probe and affect accuracy.

Verify that the process connection of the level switch matches that of the tank. This will ensure proper connectivity, prevent leaks and enhance accuracy.

If installing the transmitter outdoors, ensure that the electronics are protected from direct sunlight to prevent potential damage and ensure optimal performance.
