Ultrasonic fuel consumption sensors consist of two parts. The sensor itself is installed at the bottom of the liquid tank. Electronic device with which fuel consumption control is carried out is located outside the tank and displays the fluid level inside. Fuel control is carried out using an ultrasonic pulse that transferred from the device to the surface of the liquid in the tank, where from it is reflected and goes to the fuel consumption sensor. Fuel control is carried out by determining the time of propagation of pulse from the surface to the bottom of the tank and automatic expression in terms of volume. Thus, ultrasound allows operational control of fuel consumption without contacting with the liquid.
Contactless ultrasonic fuel level sensors are designed to measure liquid level without dipping it into the measured medium as a part of the aircraft navigation equipment GPS/GLONASS or independently.
Applies to vehicles within the Fuel Consumption Accounting systems, where the fire safety and explosion protection requirements are particularly relevant in cases when it is impossible to use more “dangerous” technologies.
For now, the level of following substances can be measured:
