Mechatronics - fuel monitoring without headache

Wed Jul 27, 2016 5:32 pm

Dear colleagues!

AVL tracking system is an important tool of fleet efficiency increasing. One of the key components of AVL tracking system is a fuel consumption monitoring subsystem, which provides the comprehensive information on a real fuel consumption to the owner.
The implemented technical solutions of fuel consumption monitoring control depends on a local GPS tracking installation and service provider. Local provider carries out an equipment installation and assists a customer to integrate GPS tracking system in business. GPS tracking service market is very competitive now, so providers must supply a quality service at an affordable price, or leave the market.

JSC Mechatronics is one of leading manufacturers of fuel consumption monitoring devices and I want to tell how we design our fuel level sensors Eurosens Dominator to make them more profitable.

Eurosens Dominator fuel level sensor was designed based on the problem to minimize the total cost of acquisition and maintenance over the life cycle. To be cheaper than China – it is a possible. Take a look how we can do it.


Servicing costs
The cost of a fuel level sensor replacement onsite (driving 400 km away from your office) can exceed the cost of the sensor. If a sensor was damaged during inappropriate use it can be compensated by a fleet owner. But someday he will be tired of it.

How we decrease it
The modular design of the fuel level sensor and bayonet quick-mount allows you to make easy remote diagnosis. In such case, you can send a new sensor head to customer and he will be able to replace it in 5 minutes. Broken sensor head can be examined later in your office.
This procedure excludes staff driving to the site - most costly part of the fuel monitoring system maintenance.

Servicing costs
Fuel level sensor replacement for most models of sensors (in which the electrodes are not detachable from the sensor head) is required to carry out re-calibration of the fuel tank. As a result, the procedure takes at least an hour. Accumulated cost of pause in operation of customer vehicle (sometimes very expensive vehicle) may exceed the value of the fuel level sensor.

How we decrease it
After replacing of the sensor head it is not required to carry out the recalibration of the tank – because sensor electrodes are still the same.

Servicing costs
When you reinstall the GPS tracking system equipment from one vehicle to another it is often required to buy a new fuel level sensor because the old sensor is cut to a shorter length. Accumulated cut short sensors cannot be used again.

How we decrease it
You can buy cheap new electrodes for Eurosens Dominator.

Servicing costs
After several years of operation, it is very frequent a damage of the fuel level sensor. There could be damaged cables at their entry into the sensor head. A sensor replacement is required.

How we decrease it
At the sensors Eurosens Dominator connector is located directly in the sensor head. Only cable can be damaged, which cost significantly less than the sensor.

Servicing costs
After several years of operation some dirt can be cluttered inside the sensor electrodes and affect to the sensor operation. Usual sensors have dismountable design and you can’t clean electrodes inside

How we decrease it
Eurosens Dominator electrodes can be cleaned even by your customer. Easy disassembling.

Servicing costs
Driver can create voltage peaks up to 100V in onboard power supply.

How we decrease it
Eurosens Dominator has a unique strong protection circuit. Sensor can be powered by voltage 170 Volt max.

Servicing costs
When you replace a sensor with usual screw mounting – screw installation in the same holes becomes worse.

How we decrease it
Replacing of sensor is fast, no need to screw again. New sensor is fixed and sealed in a bayonet mount.

Cost of Eurosens Dominator manufacturing is higher than that of usual sensors but Eurosens – is a new brand. So, Eurosens Dominator pricing is lower than well-known Omnicomm sensors and lower even than such manufacturers as Epsilon or Technoton. Only China fuel level sensors are cheaper. But as we described, during operation life of sensor total (buy and servicing) cost of Eurosens Dominator will be lower.

JSC Mechatronics is the only one developer of such wide range of sensors:
1. Capacitive fuel level sensors Eurosens Dominator.
2. Fuel flow meters Eurosens Direct, Delta.
They are used in cases where it is a necessity for an accurate reading of fuel consumption under all operating conditions - tractors and buses of high power, diesel generators, drilling rigs, boilers and so on. Some vehicles have a large consumption and irregular shape of fuel tanks. Analysis of fuel level data can be hard and with not precise. In such situations we suggest to use fuel flow meters. We provide the most innovative differential type of fuel flow meters - Eurosens Delta.


3. Ultrasonic liquid level sensors Eurosens Dizzi are installed
without drilling in the tank. It is used to control fuel consumption in passenger cars, fuel trucks, to control the level of liquid gas (LNG, LPG). Unlike China ultrasonic liquid level sensors, Eurosens Dizzi provides stable output signal. All electronics is located inside small probe, attached to the tank.

Due to the presence of equipment variety, which can always be adapted by us for a specific object, our partners do not install standard solutions but select the optimal hardware configuration for every object.

Best regards,
JSC Mechatronics
