ENAiKOON capacitive fuel
level sensor

The ENAiKOON capacitive fuel-level sensor is the perfect solution for monitoring the fuel level and fuel consumption of trucks, stationary tanks, construction equipment, generators, etc.

The ENAiKOON capacitive fuel-level sensor is the perfect solution for monitoring the fuel level and fuel consumption of trucks, stationary tanks, construction equipment, generators, etc.

The sensor works independent of the vehicle electronics, therefore it can detect and report a fuel theft in real-time by sending an alert even when the vehicle is switched off.

On top of detecting fuel-theft, it also allows real-time fuel monitoring and calculation of the remaining mileage based on the content of the tank.

The ENAiKOON capacitive sensor consists of a tube like sensor and the required cabling as well as the ENAiKOON fuel-tracker plugin, an extension of inViu pro (ENAiKOON’s highly secure telematics web portal).

The current tank fuel-level is measured and recorded directly by the sensor. This data is then sent along with the GPS data from the ENAiKOON locate-03, ENAiKOON locate-04 or ENAiKOON locate-06 to the ENAiKOON M2M-commserver, where it is then processed to display on your computer, tablet or mobile phone web browser.

Main Features

Installation

  • a hole is drilled into the top of the tank and then the tube of the sensor is inserted into this hole and the sensor is screwed to the tank
  • draining of the tank is not required
  • no moving parts
  • no calibration is required by the end user

Operations

  • the device can be removed and placed into a different tank
  • waterproof sensor and connectors
  • configurable for all different types of liquid fuel (no water)
  • measurement filtering
  • measures the fuel levels from the bottom up to the top of the tank; lowest 20 mm cannot be measured

Applicability

  • low power consumption
  • Molex connectors for the power supply and interface
  • connection cable 7 m
  • rugged plastic enclosure
