Submersible digital level sensor used for diesel tank

Aug 11 , 2023

Although there are many methods for diesel tank level measurement, but the best one is the submersible digital level sensor. In my opinion, diesel provides energy not only for agricultural tools, but also for industrial power equipment. Therefore, the importance of diesel tank is self-evident.

However, in the eyes of some people, there is no difference between the submersible digital level sensor and the ordinary type level sensor, the biggest difference is only in the digital signal RS485 output. However, this is not the case. The submersible digital level sensor is designed based on the tapered, and the design concept of this appearance comes from the demand of nearly 95% of customers. I'm sure you all know that diesel oil, unlike natural gas and other fuels, provides a lot of kinetic energy, and its concentration, density and ambient temperature all affect its quality. Secondly, in order to meet the market demand and the physical characteristics of the medium, some manufacturers will bury the diesel tank in the ground, the diesel tank level measurement needs to consider the problem of tank water, perhaps water in fuel sensor also has a huge role.

A few people have different opinions about RS485 submersible digital level sensor, but I want to share my opinion here. The basic communication mechanism of RS485 and RS232 is the same. Their advantages lie in the long communication distance, and they can realize Internet management for multiple sensors. The data shows that the longest communication distance of RS485 is 1200 meters, but the user is recommended to control within 800 meters, if the distance is too long, you can use RS485 repeater, its distance can reach 3000 meters.

It turns out that the submersible digital level sensor is better suited for diesel, water, or other industrial tanks when analyzed from different angles.
