The comprehensive diesel fuel monitoring system for a single diesel engine and two fuel tanks uses fuel rate information from the fuel flow monitor (FFM100) combined with the vessels speed from the GPS antenna/receiver (GPS200) to provide fuel economy information (e.g., miles/gallon or kilometers/liter). In addition, tank monitors provide remaining fuel information so the display can compute distance and time to empty.
The following table shows the products included within this example system plus a list of the information or data available for display.
|Product||Description||Available Data List|
|DSM250||Display||Displays data in this list, monitors the data and sounds an internal buzzer if there is a problem|
|FFM100||Fluid Flow Monitor||Monitors fuel flow rate, supply fuel temperature, return fuel temperature, trip fuel used.|
|GPS200||Cabin top GPS||Position, speed over ground, course over ground, time, date, magnetic variation and more|
|FPM100||Tank Monitor||Monitors fuel level, fuel capacity, fuel remaining, for 2 tanks.|
The following screenshots (click to enlarge) are examples of how monitored data can be displayed on the DSM250.
