Ready-to-use tank-monitoring system

July 2005 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

The Graphical Tank Monitor (Model GTM) from Red Lion is a ready to use system capable of simultaneously monitoring the level and temperature of multiple tanks, while graphically displaying and datalogging the information. Designed specifically for the food and beverage industry, the display and I/O are all housed in a stainless steel enclosure.

The bright 264 mm (10,4") colour display provides all available information at a glance - including Tank Name, Contents, Level, Temperature and Alarm status. The GTM offers simplicity with its touchscreen design that allows the user to quickly calibrate the input for the level transmitter. The interface's look and behaviour can also be customised for specific applications.

The trending facility provides an historical record of each tank's temperature for the last 26 hours and the datalogging feature provides long-term storage of information in a CSV file format that can be viewed with commercial applications such as Microsoft Excel. With Ethernet and RS485 ports standard, the GTM can be configured to provide information to an entire facility. Downloadable communications drivers provide the means to interface the GTM with most brands of PLCs and scada software, while the built-in web server allows access and control to the GTM from any networked computer.
