Technoton DUT-E S7 Wireless Fuel Level Sensor

UT-E S7 wireless sensor allows to measure current fuel volume and its changes in a fuel tank.

Description

DUT-E S7 wireless sensor allows to measure current fuel volume and its changes in a fuel tank. DUT-E S7 is used as a part of vehicle telematics system (GPS vehicle tracking system) and provides reliable information on remaining fuel volume, fuel tank fill-up and draining volumes and helps fleets to set up clear fuel accounting and prevent fuel theft from vehicle’s tank. DUT-E S7 wireless fuel level sensor is also used for fuel level monitoring in stationary tanks.

Wireless data transfer is carried out using S7 Technology via BLE channel. BLE signal from DUT-E S7 can be received by compatible vehicle tracking unit (telematics unit) and/or any Android or iOS device.

DUT-E S7 can also be used as a “night watchman” to alert driver on fuel theft from vehicle’s tank, for example, when resting at night parking.

Technoton

Technoton was established in April 2000, at the early stage of emerging market of automotive telematics and GPS tracking systems. We started with development and manufacture of GPS tracking devices, fuel level sensors and fuel flow meters. Soon we focused on solving tasks of fuel consumption measurement and fuel usage monitoring, safe CANbus data reading and analysis.

Technoton’s technical team includes highly-qualified engineers and developers, who have wide expertise in micro controller units, mechanical engineering, computer science, programming and diagnosis.

Features

  • wireless data transfer using S7 Technology via BLE (Bluetooth 4.X Low Energy);
  • operation in BLE-radio mode without pairing with receiver – simultaneous data transfer to telematics unit, smartphones, tablets with Bluetooth
  • built-in battery – DUT-E S7 works without external power supply;
  • very low power consumption allows autonomous operation of sensor within 5…10 years;
  • explosion protection confirmed by “On the Safety of Equipment for Operation in Explosive Environment

Applications

DUT-E S7 can also be used as a “night watchman” to alert driver on fuel theft from vehicle’s tank, for example, when resting at night parking.
