Main Features of fuel level sensors
Constantly changing fuel characteristics can dramatically affect the accuracy of fuel measurements. Factors as diverse as oil manufacturing methods, additives used in gasoline production, switching from winter to summer fuel and fuelling at different stations affect the physical characteristics of filled fuel. Capacitive sensors measure a specific characteristic (dielectric permittivity) that can differ significantly from the dielectric permittivity of the fuel used during calibration – causing errors in fuel-level calculations of up to 30%.
OMNICOMM LLS 5 uses OMNICOMM’s unique Fuelscan® technology to guarantee unprecedented accuracy of 99.5% in all conditions. Using measurements from an additional probe in the sensor to compare filled fuel characteristics with the fuel used for calibration and calculate measurements accordingly, this sensor sets a new industry standard and is twice as accurate as regular capacitive fuel level sensors.
OMNICOMM LLS 5 reduces maintenance and re-calibration needs with the ability to compensate for errors in initial calibration, an issue that affects 20% of installed sensors. It provides precise fuel accounting for fleet owners and builds customer loyalty for installation partners who can confidently deliver on promises of accuracy.
The sensor has the highest possible ingress protection rating (IP69K), allowing high-pressure hot-water washes.
