Wireless fuel flow meter

Wireless fuel flow meter

DFM S7 and DFM D S7 – hardware tool for direct fuel consumption measurement and monitoring flow of liquids with 1.5 to 6 mm2/s kinematic viscosity, also used for recording engine operation time and fuel/liquid flow time. DFM S7 wireless fuel flow meters are used in vehicle telematics (GPS/ GLONASS vehicle tracking), online monitoring systems of stationary engines, boilers/heaters, and as an stand-alone solution for fuel consumption monitoring.

The flow meters are based on S7 Technology, which ensures wireless data transfer via Bluetooth 4.X (Bluetooth Low Energy) to several devices using BLE-radio. In other words, the flow meters are operated in “advertising” mode – data is sent simultaneously to telematics units and GPS trackers, Bluetooth-displays, smartphones and tablets.

Core features

  • operation in BLE-radio mode: data is sent to several Receivers at the same time
  • in-built battery – fuel flow sensor works without external power supply
  • very low power consumption allows autonomous operation of flowmeter for 5 years
  • explosion and fire safety without additional intrinsic safety barrier
  • no cables – improved resistance to vandalism or accidental damage

Tasks

Wireless flow meter’s fields of application

Models of wireless fuel flow meters

Single-chamber (models DFM 50S7, DFM 100S7, DFM 250S7, DFM 500S7) – fuel consumption measurement in fuel feed line of engine. Can work both autonomously and as part of a telematics system. Designed for fuel consumption control of road, off-road and railway vehicles, water vessels, diesel generators and stationary machinery equipped with Euro-4 engines and lower, which have 1 to 500 L/ h flow rate.

Single-chamber flow meter with Blueooth

Differential (models DFM 100DS7, DFM 250DS7, DFM 500DS7) – measure fuel consumption as the difference in flow rates in feed and return lines of fuel system – differential consumption measurement from 10 to 600 L/ h. Designed for fuel consumption control of road, off-road and railway vehicles, water vessels and stationary machinery equipped with modern diesel engines, which has Common Rail or pump injector fuel systems.

Fuel consumption and operating time Counters:

  • Hourly fuel consumption, L/H
  • Total fuel consumption, L
  • Total fuel consumption in “Idling” mode of engine operation
  • Total fuel consumption in “Optimal” mode of engine operation
  • Total fuel consumption in “Overload” mode of engine operation
  • Fuel consumption in “Tampering” mode
  • Total operating time, h
  • Total operating time in “Idling” engine operation mode
  • Total operating time in “Optimal” engine operation mode
  • Total operating time in “Overload” engine operation mode
  • Operating time in “Tampering” mode
  • Operating time in “Interference” mode, h
  • Current engine operation mode as per fuel consumption rate
  • Fuel temperature
  • Battery charge

Bluetooth data transfer to telematics unit or tracker

The flow meter continuously transfers information about fuel consumption, engine operating time, engine operation modes, recorded Events using “advertising” (BLE-radio) mode. Data is received using S7 Technology by all devices within the range of the signal of BLE module of the fuel flow meter.

Fuel consumption control via Bluetooth on a smartphone

To receive data from wireless fuel counter using S7 Technology to a smartphone/tablet based on OS Android 5.X and above, Fuel consumption monitor mobile application is used, the functionality of which allows a user to:

  • carry out fuel consumption and temperature monitoring
  • perform fuel consumption accounting
  • record machinery operating time
  • monitor engine operating mode based on flow rate
  • view real time graph of instant fuel consumption
  • monitor flowmeter malfunctions
  • check fuel sensor’s battery charge
  • monitor hourly consumption and fuel temperature values
  • perform operations with flow meter’s configuration profile

Fuel consumption monitor app is available in Google Play (search request “Technoton”)
