A microprocessor-based probe placed in the fuel tank of a rail vehicle precisely monitors its condition. The information is sent to a system that provides effective monitoring of the rail vehicle’s fuel status. With this device, it is possible to detect fuel losses, control the refuelling process and control consumption.
Flow meter unit
The flowmeter unit consists of several devices for measuring the fuel consumption of a rail vehicle. It enables accurate monitoring of the amount of fuel consumed in real time. The information from the flow meters is collected and analysed, allowing fuel consumption to be tracked.
The fuel terminal is a device mounted at the fuel filler, which eliminates the need for inaccurate measuring strips.
Use of this device allows the locomotive operator to read the current state of fuel in the tank as measured by the probes. An additional function of the device is the possibility of two-way communication between the driver and the dispatcher.
