Fuel level sensor LTS-040 CAN

In contrast to all existing market gauges, sensors LTS calibrated directly in the required user units (eg. liters), and produce digital interface The real value of fuel volume. In addition, all data processing to eliminate the noise in the measured signal, eliminating bursts of fuel in the tank and the other artifacts is carried out directly in the sensor on a carefully elaborated algorithms. The result is a sensor output is not an abstract "tension" or "impulses" that still require further transformation with the inevitable loss of accuracy, and the real value of the volume or level of fuel in values understandable to the user - liters or millimeters.

A properly-designed power system sensor allows it to work continuously and trouble-free at eightfold differential voltage onboard network - from 9 to 72 volts. Special mounting flange is installed on the tank away from the sensor. It has a standard mount with 5 screws and can be substituted for other mounting options without replacement or modification of the sensor. Also it simplifies the replacement of the sensor.

LTS sensors can be connected to most of the systems for monitoring or recording with interface CAN («LTS», «Skipper», «Teltonika»). Also it is possible to connect LTS-042-CAN to systems having analog inputs or frequency ("Lokarus", "Autograph", "CKPT", "Helix", "Scout", etc.) but some features of sensors LTS can be lost.

Technical characterictics:

Output CAN interface
Type of output The real volume of fuel in liters, milliliters, etc. *
Measurement time and disclosure of information in the interface, seconds 5 … 3600 **
The maximum load current for control output indicator, mA 100
Lower limit of the controlled level of fuel from the tank bottom, mm 3 ... 20
The upper limit of measurement (L), mm 200 ... 2000 (depends on the length of the measuring part)
Sensor supply voltage, V 9...72 ***
Power consumption, not more, W 0,25
Overall dimensions of the level sensor, mm Ø75 x (L+40)
Level sensor weight, kg 0.5 ... 2.5 (depends on length)
Operating mode Continuous
Precision / Accuracy level,% of the length of the measuring sensor ± 1
Operating conditions / Ambient temperature, ° C From – 40 to +75

* Defined in the calibration of the sensor. Output is standard with 0.1 liters. Resolving power of the sensor allows to fix the change in volume of less than 0.01 liters per tank of 100 liters when the vehicle is stationary.

** Configured during calibration.

*** The regular working voltage range. Short noise spikes will not affect the operation of the sensor, can reach 200 V or more.
