Calibration of the lpg level transmitter
Calibration of the fuel sensor is calibration the full level and empty level .The fundamental principle is to record a full value and empty value in the fuel sensor when tank is full and empty ;The purpose is to define the position level of the fuel when it is full and empty in the tank.The electrical signal changes as the fuel level changes ,calculating the height of the fuel level .
When the fuel sensor is shortened ,it needs to be calibrated .Calibration to empty level and full level is related to the medium and the liquid level ,instead of volume of the tank ;this operation
can be operated in room (make a container ,simulate a full fuel tank by filling the container full ).First ,calibrate full level ,then the empty level ,or else the sensor could not enter the setting mode .
Calibration of full level
Fill the tank to desired full level ,put the sensor into the tank ,wait for about 30 seconds until the aluminum tube of sensor was filled with fuel,then press and hold on the "F"button on the calibrator for 5 seconds till the green LED light slowly flickers .This indicates that calibration for full level is in progress .Release the "F"button at this moment .The green LED light will turn off in about 10 seconds ,indicating that the calibration of the full level is comlete .
Calibration of empty level
Remove the sensor from the container /tank .After liquid fully drains from the sensor ,press and hold on the "E"button for about 5 seconds until the green LED light starts to flicker fast .This indicates that calibration for empty level is in progress .Release the "E"button at this moment .The gree LED light will turn off ater about 10 seconds ,indicating that calibration of the empty level is complete .
