Individual special transmitters in the upper price range can be configured via a special tool on a PC. This is where the innovative solution from Trafag is applied: Standard filling-level transmitters are configured with an intuitively usable Android app. For this, only a special Trafag interface tool is required, as well as a voltage source in the form of a «powerbank». With this, the measuring instruments can be parameterized quickly, easily and mobilely. The parameter sets can be saved as files or be sent via e-mail: as a result, in the case of replacement part deliveries, the original parameter set can be loaded onto the replacement device in just a few seconds.
This opens up new options for manufacturers of tank and pump control systems: One can take a simple, completely standardized control (which also does not require a convenient programming interface) to input the tank and fluid parameters. Then one can parameterize the filling level sensor with a smartphone (at latest) on site during installation based on the local situation and then save the data in the project documentation. This results in a very streamlined solution, which can particularly be used to realize simple tank control and monitoring systems very cost-effectively. Since exactly the same version is used every time, the optimum solution is achieved here with regard to the warehousing of the initial installation and replacement parts.
