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:
- Smart-EP-Module containing the flow regulators, pressure sensors and electronic card (Level Sensing Unit-LSU) which handles all functions.
- Stop Check Valve to be fitted in the top of the tank.
- Measuring Pipe that connects the Module to the Stop Check Valve and then goes into the tank. For certain applications where air bubbling is not permitted in the tank, for example in potable water tanks, a 1:1 Pneumatic Converter is installed instead of the Stop Check Valve (see dedicated chapter). Smart-EP-Level can also be used to measure ship draught. Up to 32 Smart-EP-Level Units (32 tanks) can be connected in parallel to an Interface Board (DCU) which is generally located above the bulkhead deck. Each Unit is FULLY independent so that no malfunctions occurring in one unit can affect units connected to the same DCU. Up to 32 DCUs can be connected together in a loop.
