Maretron’s Fluid Pressure Monitor (FPM100) can be used for one of two purposes, 1) to monitor pressure/vacuum, or 2) to monitor tank levels. Although a single FPM100 can be programmed to monitor both pressure/vacuum and tank levels, this particular example is for tank level monitoring.
This basic tank monitoring system monitors six tanks using Maretron’s 3.5” color display, a Fluid Pressure Monitor (FPM100) and six Maretron pressure transducers. The system can be calibrated for odd shaped tanks so you get precision tank level information. And since the tank capacity is programmable, you can see exactly how many gallons remain in the tank. You can even combine different tanks into a single gauge or display, eliminating the need to continually perform mental calculations.
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|
|DSM410||Helm Pod Display||3.5” displays shows data in this list, monitors the data and sounds an internal buzzer if there is a problem|
|FPM100||Tank Monitor||Monitors level in 2 fuel tanks, 2 fresh water tank, 1 waste water tank, 1 black water tank|
