I need to measure the level of a tank fuel . The problem is that i don't know what kind of sensor to use ? Any suggestions please ?
I'm sorry for my bad question :S My issue is to measure fuel in a genset tank. So I assume that this tank is from metal and it's very big size... First, "very big" means nothing. An older thread, but deserves showing a solution that few know about. There is several depth lenghts available : ----> www.k
Everything is working as it should; the fuel level at the sensor is changing, and it is being reported as such. You are NOT getting a 'wrong reading', you are getting a very accurate reading. You either need to filter your data, or stop the fuel from sloshing. Try putting baffles in your fuel tank. Or drive on better (...)
93189 i have this transducer. i want to make a circuit which drive it. please help me for that. i want to make fuel level sensor which can measure fuel or any liquid in the tank. thanks in advance
I'm doing 8051 project of Motorbike meter, troubling with fuel sensor, my bike having 100 ohm fuel float sensor, that varies from 93 ohm to 5 ohm, (93 ohm for empty & 05 for full), i need 0 to 5 volt variation to ADC, means for 93 ohm i need 0 volts & for 5 ohm i need 5 volts,,, plz help me im in final stage of project, this is only the remaining
Sam what generator is involved, what type, size and rest infos ? For voltage you can go with voltage divider or small transformer. Current measuring hall sensor like A1302. For fuel level, you must describe generator and fuel tank, all from shape, volumen,... Its possible to count and log produced KW/h, measure temp, log data to (...)
can you need this sensor fuel level in the
Can we use load cell for petrol level measurement in car? will this method feasible for level measurement?
I Googled for "Drift fuel gauge", got loads of hits but no installation details. One site did mention about a convertor for resistance fuel tank units. Without such scant details I have had a think and what I think is worth trying out is :- 1. earth the -ve terminal of the gauge. 2. connect the tank unit to +12V via a (...)
It is a project of car computer on Atmega8. Functions: inside and outside temperature measurement voltage measurement in car installation measurement of the fuel level in tank measurement of the amount of fuel burned warning about the lights that are not on when the engine started flashing signal of
I want to detect the level of fuel in a cars fuel tank, taken from the voltage of the fuel sender. Granted, it will fluctuate when the car is moving since the fuel sloshes in tank. I thought, I could do the following: - Read a sample from the ADC - Discard outlaying values (to get rid (...)
I am toying around with building pic based digital gages for my tractor. The gages would be fuel, temperature, oil pressure and battery. I need some help understanding how a couple of these could be done. The fuel is very straight forward. It has a variable resistor/rheostat operated by a float in the tank. You simply send a voltage to (...)
hello dudes My application needs to detect the presence or absence of filler cap of fuel tank. anybody help me how to detect this,if any sensors available for this type of application let me know please. Thanks
Hi chsp129, Eventual some vacuum effects in fuel tank? I think you must control/check-recalibrate it in an external(opticall) controllable tank... K.
hi u all, i am doing my final year project on fuel tank capacity monitoring,the purpose of the project is to make the capacity reading viewable into the computer in real time instead of using a calibrated stick to measure that capacity. i proposed my tools as floating bouyer, potentiometer sensor,PIC , computer and microBASIC LANGUAGE to write a
HI You can use pressure sensor to measure fuel level in tank Freescale provide many type of pressure sensor you can order via MOUSER Also look for application note from National & Frescale on how to preform liquid level measurement All the best Bobi The microcontroller specialist
I am looking in to driving a standard fuel gauge. From what I understand, the sender unit in the fuel tank is basically a resistor, and as the level of the fuel changes, the resistance changes, and this changes the current in the fuel gauge and it moves the needle. Right? Well...... I have been seeing (...)
i m measuring fuel level of car there is a floater in the tank which gives analog voltage and i measure it through pic ADC and display the result but whwn car moves floatre output varries too much which shows intemittancy in display is there any specific or any good method to remove this sloshing problem
Hi everyone! I want to built a fuel lavel indicator through a microcontroller system. The fuel tank of the boat has a floater. The floater is connected on a potensiometer. My problem is how can i avoid the quick changes of the displayed level on the lcd which are cause from the sea's waves?
Hello everybody, Did anybody, by any chance, design an automotive pump controller (brushless motor). The pump lies immersed in the tank. Some schematics/examples would help. Thank you a lot. nike
