The intermediate tank monitoring system for a dual gasoline/petrol engines and two fuel tanks uses fuel rate information from the fuel flow monitor (FFM100) combined with the vessels speed from the GPS antenna/receiver (GPS200) to provide fuel economy information (e.g., miles/gallon or kilometers/liter). In addition, tank monitors provide remaining fuel information so the display can compute distance and time to empty. The TLM150 senses the level of the fluid in the tank using ultrasonic technology eliminiating the need for probes into the tank, which often foul or corrode.
The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.
|Product||Description||Available Data List|
|TSM800C||Display||Displays data in this list, monitors the data and displays an alert if there is a problem.|
|FFM100||Fluid Flow Monitor||Monitors fuel flow rate, fuel temperature, trip fuel used.|
|GPS200||Cabin top GPS||Position, speed over ground, course over ground, time, date, magnetic variation and more.|
|TLM150||Tank Level Monitor||Monitors fuel level, fuel capacity, fuel remaining|
|VDR100||Vessel Data Recorder||Performance analysis, vessel tracking, preventative maintenance, warranty incident, and accident investigation|
The following components (click to enlarge) are examples of how monitored data can be displayed on the TSM800C, tablet or smartphone using N2KView or N2KView Mobile. The components are arranged on favourite screens at positions and sizes to suit the user's needs. See N2KView web page for exampes of full screenshots.
