Ultrasonic Fuel Level Sensor
(UFLS) - securityProbe Only
If your business infrastructure relies on backup generators, the chances are you are also relying on fuel to power those. By using the AKCess Pro Ultrasonic Fuel Level sensor you can ensure that your fuel tanks are filled and ready for the most critical moments.
The AKCess Pro Ultrasonic Fuel Level Sensor is a liquid level detector that will monitor the level of liquid in a tank and display this level on the securityProbe 5E's web interface and send alerts accordingly.
The RJ-45 intelligent sensor port on base unit powers the sensor. It is compatible with any of the securityProbe series units, or the E-sensor 8 expansion modules.
You can instantly be alerted should there be any drop below critical levels in your liquid. Advance alerting, including an additional feature that alerts you if you liquid level is dropping too quickly, protects you from possible fuel leaks or theft and ensure your tanks never run dry again.
The sensor assembly incorporates an advanced tank sender based on the ultrasonic measurement technology and can monitor a variety of liquids in many types of tanks. These tank level thresholds can then be linked to the advanced notification alerts on the securityProbe 5E's web interface.
This sensor is designed for monitoring liquid levels in tanks. These tanks can be in linear and non-linear sizes as they are easily calibrated from a simple wizard that is run from the securityProbe 5E's web interface. Linearization parameters are used to adjust the measurement accuracy for non-linear tanks. For example a tank is non-linear if the tank height is not proportional to its capacity.
The low profile design and standard SAE 5 hole mounting pattern make it easy to install and setup and it has no moving parts for long lasting functionality.

• How long until a reading is received after powering on or configuring the UFLS?
• Does the Full-Scale Accuracy vary depending on the tank's size and shape?
For deep tank's the full-scale accuracy percentage is less. For shallow tank's full-scale accuracy is higher.
