Monitoring of tank refuelling and fuel draining

Emergency fuel balance

Remote monitoring of diesel generator includes fuel consumption monitoring and monitoring of engine operation parameters. Such kind of monitoring helps to plan timely refueling and maintenance, also it is good way to determine and prevent fuel thefts and generator breakdown.

Technoton’s  solution for diesel generators is based on accurate tools for fuel consumption measurement: DFM fuel flow meters are mounted in fuel line, DUT-E fuel level sensors are installed in fuel tanks – all fuel sensors are connected together through S6 telematics bus, which is a single calbe for power-supplying all the device and receiving signal to CANUp telematics gateway. Received data is processed by CANUp and sent to web-based ORF4 telematics service (or directly to user by SMS, e-mail or via messenger.) Also, it is possible to organize autonomous solution using DFM fuel counter – no external power supply needed, no monthly costs for data transfer, all information is available on electronic display (LCD) of DFM fuel flow meter.

Technical options

Telematics system based on differential flowmeter DFM D and  online gateway CAN-Up  is suitable for precise determination of fuel consumption and monitoring of engine operating parameters.

Information about  fuel consumption,  engine operating time transmis to online terminal in real time and vailable for user in form of reports and diagrams.

This solution ensures:

  • Accounting for the actual fuel consumption of the diesel generator;
  • Identification and prevention of theft of fuel;
  • Accounting for the actual running time of the engine in the modes (starter, optimal, full load);
  • Real-Time Monitoring;
  • Protection from the “wrap-up” of the testimony, the warning about interference.

Solution based on using  fuel level sensor with the built-in GSM module DUT-E GSM is suitable for real time fuel level monitoring. Received data can be transmitted to telematics service, in addition, DUT-E GSM can work without server, reports can be transmitted directly to the user via SMS and e-mail.

This solution ensures:

  • Control of the real volume of fuel in the tank;
  • Control of fuel fillings and drains;
  • Identification and prevention of theft of fuel from the tank;
  • Real-time data transfer;
  • Notifications of minimum balance, drains / refills and engine start-up by SMS, e-mail to computer or smartphone;
  • Remote diagnostics and sensor configuration via SMS commands.

Installing a DFM flowmeter equipped with  display provides with  autonomously controlling of  fuel consumption of diesel generator without transmitting data to  server. This solution is suitable for diesel generators located within the allotted area. Depending on amount of fuel consumed, stand-alone DFM, DFM D or DFM Marine flowmeters can be installed.

This solution ensures:

  • Accounting for actual fuel consumption;
  • Identify and prevent theft of fuel;
  • Accounting for actual engine operating time in different modes (starting, optimal, full load);
