'Gobius C' uses Acconeer radar sensors to achieve millimeter accuracy for the new tank level system
A new generation of tank level monitoring
The Gobius team concluded that they wanted to use a radar based sensor, which is a proven technology within industrial applications. After exploring various options, they decided to go for the Acconeer XM122 radar module. They acquired a development kit for test and evaluation and were able to conclude that the module met their challenging requirements. From there, the development continued very efficiently from the start in late 2021 and the first customers got their units in October 2022.
Featuring the Acconeer radar technology, the new ‘Gobius C’ indicator gives a range of superior benefits compared to previous Gobius systems:
- Measures 0-100% tank level with millimeter accuracy
- Mount the sensor on the outside of the tank – get started in 15 minutes
- Works with any type of fluid (petrol, diesel, fresh water, grey water and black water)
- Wireless monitoring directly to your phone or PC through Bluetooth.
“The development work went very smoothly. We started the project back in December 2021 and shipped to our first customers in October 2022.”
