The Solar Powered Separator Monitor comes with the same intrinsically safe control unit and an oil sensing probe as the mains powered. The control unit can be upgraded to be capable of monitoring up to 4 probe units displaying their current status via a 2 x 16 digit LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). Its ‘Output Relay’ enables this status to be signalled to a remote location if required.
How they work
The Control Unit continually monitors the condition of the probe units attached by checking their condition approximately every 30 minutes. The current status is then displayed via the LCD on the front of the unit. If an alarm condition is detected, a warning message is displayed. After the Separator has been emptied and refilled with water, the control re-scans the probe sensors attached and presuming no alarm condition is detected ‘All Correct’ will be displayed.
