The Wärtsilä Smart-EP-Level is a complete and standalone Level Measuring Unit that utilizes electro-pneumatic technology to measure the level of any liquid media inside a tank. The hydrostatic pressure of a liquid is measured by introducing compressed air into the tank via a pipe. Signals corresponding to the pressure measured are used locally, or can be transmitted to a centralized system to assess the level measurement. The Wärtsilä Smart-EP-Level can also process the measured pressure using pre-recorded tank data, and in this way can be used as a stand-alone level measuring device. The Smart-EP-Level generates a second and separate 4-20 mA signal that corresponds to the pressure measured, which can be used for local monitoring.
Smart-EP-Level is specifically designed for all onboard ship applications where the continuous measurement of levels in tanks carrying any type of liquid media (fuel, oils, ballast, fresh water, etc.) is required.
Each Smart-EP-Level Unit is composed of:
