Principle
Capvel-FUEL measures fuel level using the principle of capacitance. The sense rod and the metallic wall of still tube of the sensor form the two plates of a capacitor. The application material (diesel) forms the dielectric between these plates. The amount of capacitance formed is proportional to the level of diesel between the plates. Capvel-FUEL utilizes a specially developed capacitance change gauging circuit to measure any change in the level of fuel.
