elobau has developed a level gauge with analogue output signal based on ultrasonic technology especially for (diesel) fuel tanks in e.g. generators.
The ultrasonic pulses are generated in the head of the sensor. These are reflected by the surface of the liquid and sent back to the sensor. By measuring the running time, the level is calculated and converted to an analogue signal.
This takes into account the increasing needs for even more accurate level measurement of fuel. Thanks to this wear-resistant measuring principle, the machine manufacturer’s demand for maintenance-free components is met.
The non-contact measuring principle prevents contact with the medium to be measured. The sensor is specially designed for durable resistance to diesel fuel, especially biodiesel.
