GPS FLEET SOFTWARE - Questions and Answers

How do Tankmatix Fuel Level Sensors work (Fueltank-10)?

  • Tankmatix Silo sensors continuously measure the current fuel based on the Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) principle.
  • High frequency microwave pulses are guided along a probe in the tank. The fuel level surface partly reflects the signals. The time difference of the transmitted and received signals is used to calculate the precise fuel level.
  • The fuel level is transmitted using a GPRS transmission box or a GPS telematic tracking device.

How does the GSM transmission box working? Do I need a SIM card?

  • The GSM transmission device sends the fuel level data of the Tankmatix sensor to the GPS Fleet Software.
  • The GSM transmission device uses an appropriate data SIM card. In most European countries the right SIM card will be pre-installed by the provider. In other destinations the customer might need to insert his own sim card.
  • The GSM transmission device will be mounted close to the Tankmatix sensor in a safe environment.
  • The GSM transmission device includes internal batteries for independent operation. With a daily message the batteries can last up to 12 months. The exact working duration of the batteries depends on the sending interval of the Tankmatix sensors and external factors such as the surrounding temperature.
  • The GSM transmission device can be additionally connected to either 12 or 24 volt DC or 230 volt AC.

How can I see the fuel level data? What is the operating cost?

  • The GPS Fleet Software is compulsory for operating and monitoring Tankmatix fuel level sensors.
  • The GPS Fleet Software is used to display the tank monitoring values from silo tanks, fuel tanks, diesel tanks or mobile tankers. The fuel levels are shown together with GPS tracks in the map or table views.
  • Each Tankmatix customer gets a separate software service offer for the operation of the Tankmatix Sensors in the GPS Fleet Software. The operating cost for consumers in Austria is 18 Euro incl. VAT (15,00 Euro net) per month including SIM charges. There are price cuts for business customers that purchase 10, 25 or more sensors.

How is the installation of the Tankmatix fuel level sensors working?

  • There must be enough free space to mount the sensor on the upper side of the tank.
  • The sensor shall be mounted with enough distance to obstacles or the filling flow.
  • Use the installation manual to install the sensor. Use a proper thread to firmly screw the sensor in the tank.
  • The sensor will be connected to the GSM transmission box using a 4 wire cable. The transmission box must be connected to main power (either 12/24 volt or 230 volt)
  • The wire rope sensor needs to be mounted in the lower end so that the tensioning weight cannot touch the tank walls.
  • In case of installation in hazardous areas you should consider the ATEX conform Tankmatix sensor and the right installation (using safe connectors and wiring). The GSM transmission device has to be mounted outside the dangerous area.
