and other products can be used as a component and easily integrated into fleet management systems of nearly all manufacturers. The company offers a range of accurate analog and digital Fuel Level Sensors to customers worldwide.
How does a Fuel Level Sensor work?
Omnicomm LLS Fuel Level Sensor is designed to measure fuel level in the vehicle fuel tank and fuel storages. The sensor is connected to any AVL-device reporting the measured fuel value. It is also possible to monitor and control fuel data using special software which allows for the creation of different reports on transport fuel consumption, as well as to notify in case of violations.
Why is a Fuel Level Sensor better than any other fuel monitoring solution?
There are currently several ways to monitor fuel consumption; however each of them has its drawbacks. For example, a standard floater does not have a high level of accuracy, while a CAN-bus has the so-called “dead zone” where the inaccuracy can reach 100 liters. Such methods of control as fuel consumption rates, set by manufacturer or the company using equipment itself, are unfortunately, imprecise as well. Consumption rates are usually inflated and, moreover, they do not consider vehicle load, driving style and road quality.
What is the economic efficiency of a Fuel Level Sensor?
An improved fuel monitoring system can save up to 30-40 % of the fuel costs. Such savings guarantee ROI within 2-3 months. With oil and fuel prices continuously rising, more and more companies operating fleets are thinking about reducing the fuel costs. By choosing appropriate fuel monitoring solutions, everyone benefits – fleet owners cut fuel costs while system integrators earn money.
