GX Tank 140
The GX Tank 140 takes readings from up to four tank level sensors. It is an accessory for our range of GX system monitoring products, of which the Cerbo GX is the most commonly used model.
Tank levels can be read-out locally in the system, see screenshot, as well remotely through our VRM Portal.
The GX Tank is compatible with current senders (4 to 20 mA) as well as voltage senders (0 to 10 V). The connection to the GX Device is via USB, which is also how the GX Tank is powered: no additional power wires required.
Tank sender wiring is kept as simple as possible: two of the four inputs provide a 24 V power supply, to power the sender. The other two channels do require an external power supply, and there is a power in terminal together with fused outputs to facilitate that.
Upper and lower limits are configurable, to allow using senders that provide only part of the scale, for example 0 to 5 V.
To provide a stable reading, the readings are averaged damping. The damping can be configured between 1 and 60 seconds.
Faulty sensors and wiring issues are detected: an alarm will be raised when values are out of range.
For marine applications, the GX Device can transmit these tank levels on the NMEA 2000 network to be picked up by other displays such as an MFD.
This signal converter module is used with 10-180 ohm, or 240-33 ohm tank senders to produce a 0-5V output.
Supply voltage: 10-32 volts Switchable jumper (link) for 240-33, or 10-180 ohm inputs (Supplied with jumper set to suit 240-33 ohm senders) Output voltage: 0-5 volts
Tank monitoring must be calibrated to ensure that monitor matches tank conditions! The 240-33 ohm senders may indicate some tank contents when in fact the tank is empty
We can supply the tank kit with 1 2 3 or 4 adapters so please contact us for pricing details if less are required
