Intelligent Tank Sensors
BEDIA intelligent tank sensors are characterized by a particularly stable, but light mechanical system specially designed for “Heavy Duty Applications”. The mounting flange and measurement tube are constructed from die cast aluminium.
The ITS level measuring system is based on a capacitative measurement principle. This principle permits measurement of levels without mechanically moving parts. This considerably increases stability and operating safety. All intelligent tank sensores are equipped with a BEDIA patented sensor structure that makes it possible, regardless of the fuel used, to measure the correct fuel level. The use of a microcontroller not only permits linear tank geometries to be taken into account using the intelligent tank sensor, but also many different tank geometries to be correctly evaluated by programming up to 15 reference points.
Another equipment characteristic of the BEDIA ITS is the integrated switch output. This output can be set up individually as a minimum or maximum function. In addition, the switch point position, dalay time and switch hysteresis can be programmed.
