Accutech_FL10 Wireless Float Level

The Accutech FL10 wireless float level field unit interfaces with the Siemens TM Model 2100 and 1000 digital level sensors, providing single or dual fluid level and temperature data across a wireless connection to an Accutech base radio. The FL10 field unit `head’ and Siemens Model 2100 level sensor are offered as separate products and shipped independently to the end user, where they are then connected together. The Siemens level sensor utilises proven technology in a variety of liquids including crude oil, condensate, diesel, gasoline, kerosene and water.

The product’s accuracy and resolution make it the ideal choice for custody transfer measurement, production monitoring/leak detection, inventory control, remote read out of level in H2S environment, Hi/Lo notifications and controls, and many other applications. Accutech field units automatically report field data to a centralised Accutech base radio over distances of up to 3000ft (~1000m). Each field unit is self contained, featuring an integrated 900MHz or 2.4GHz (license-free band), frequency hopping, spread-spectrum transceiver and antenna, and long-lasting battery that offers 3+ years of maintenance-free service (up to 10 years depending on data rates and battery options). Accutech networks are highly scalable with the possibility of 100 field units per base radio and 256 base radios per installation.

Accutech field units are housed within a compact and weather-resistant (NEMA4 or NEMA4X) enclosure with options for a remote sensor and remote antenna on select models. The Accutech FL10 field unit is available in a wide range of certifications and comes with a 3-Year warranty on parts and labor (excluding digital level sensor which is warranted by Siemens).
