Fuel Monitoring System

The ever-rising fuel prices hit the operational cost of a businesses. It is wise to use a fuel monitoring system that is specially designed to track real-time fuel consumption information and fuel refilling to prevent fuel pilfrage. The fuel tracking system helps in reducing operational costs of diesel generators and commercial vehicles.

Benefits

Fuel Theft Protection
Fuel Theft Protection

Integrate fuel sensor with a GPS device to identify the location of a vehicle and get notified when the fuel level changes to reduce the fuel pilferage condition.

Diesel Generator Sets
Fuel Monitoring in DG Sets

Remotely monitor the fuel consumption in diesel generators helps in refilling the storage section timely to protect DG sets from breakdown conditions.

Remote Tracking feature in Fuel Level Sensor
Remote Tracking

The in-built application program interface of fuel level sensor supports remote-tracking features through MODBUS-RTU.

Applications

Fuel Level Sensor in Vehicle Tracking system

Vehicle Tracking System

The primary challenging aspects for any fleet owner are efficiency, cost reduction, and safety standards. To fulfill all the requirements, fleet tracking system is used with a fuel level sensor.

The vehicle tracking system is an IoT gateway sensor which helps in monitoring and tracking fuel level in fleets. The gateway sends fuel insights to the cloud along with its GPS location.

Fuel Level Sensor in DG-Sets

Fuel Monitoring in Diesel Generator

Fuel levels should be checked regularly in the diesel generators to maintain efficiency and performance. Dg-sets are more efficienct on its full capacity as compared to partial. After a certain period, DG-sets lose its capacity and starts conserving more fuel, which affect the maintenance cost.

The fuel level sensors are more equipped to analyze the fuel parameters meticulously which record the fuel consumed during running hours to maintain the performance.


Capvel-FUEL: Level Sensor Solution

Capvel-FUEL is a compact fuel level sensor which works on the principle of capacitance and addresses the problem of fuel management. It comes with a step-by-step guide in the form of a desktop application called ’Capvel-FUEL-Connect’.

Features

Level to Volume Configuration

Capvel-FUEL can convert the measured level into volume, according to the shape of tank. Choose among four different output options:

  • Level in Percentage
  • Level in Voltage
  • Level in Height
  • Volume in Millilitres

Save & Reuse Tank Profiles

Skip configuring the entire fleet of trucks / DG-sets every time while calibrating Capvel-FUEL. Simply save and reuse a common profile in the application for all tanks with the same dimensions and all the settings can be loaded using just a few button clicks which speed up the process of calibration.

Adjustable Probe length

The availability of various tank sizes in different applications requires variable probe length. Adjust the length of Capvel-FUEL using the“Cuttable and Extensible” feature of its probe.

Turbulence Compensation

Rugged environments don’t affect the measurement of Capvel-FUEL. A special algorithm embedded in the sensor compensates for the effect of turbulence and allows setting up of different degrees of turbulence tolderance.

Application Guided Installation

Use a step-by-step user friendly desktop application that will save time and comfortably complete the process of calibration in just few button clicks and real-time value of the current fuel level is shown in all output formats.

This application will also give summary of all aspects (Probe Length, Turbulence and Tank Height) entered during configuration process.
