Tank Farm Level System Monitor and Data Log Tank Farm Inventory on your PC Computer TFT32 Tank Farm Transmitter Accepts Ultrasonic and Pressure Sensors, or existing 4-20mA Transmitters Local Display at Each Tank Built-in Relay for Level Control Add up to 5 extra Relays per Tank RS-485 Serial Output Low-cost, multi-drop Wiring TFS Tank Farm Supervisor Software PC-based Tank Inventory Supervision and Data Logging Monitors up to 32 Tanks Client version for LAN Users Dial-up function for Modem connection to Remote Sites Tank Farm Inventory Monitoring and Control System The Simple Way to Monitor Tank Farm Inventory Your Choice of Sensors Connect up to 32 Greyline TFT32 Tank Farm Transmitters and monitor tank inventory right from your PC computer. Mount one TFT32 Transmitter at each tank for local display and level control. Connect them in series or by Modem to your PC computer and use Greyline's Tank Farm Supervisor PC software to continuously monitor and datalog all tank levels. Allow LAN users to monitor some or all tanks in the network and to create their own datalog files. Use the best type of Sensor for each tank. Order the TFT32 with your choice of ultrasonic or pressure Sensors, or provide 4-20mA input signal from existing transmitters. The TFT32 Tank Farm Transmitter converts these different Sensor inputs, or 4-20mA to an RS485 digital signal. All Transmitters share the same 4-conductor cable for simple, low cost installation.

Mount your choice of ultrasonic or pressure sensor (or existing 4-20mA transmitter) in each tank. 2. Install one TFT32 Transmitter at a convenient location near each tank and connect its Sensor. Use the built-in keypad to calibrate the measurement span and relay set points. 3. Connect each TFT32 Transmitter in a series terminating at your PC computer with an RS485 to RS232 converter (and optional 24VDC power supply). For remote locations connect each TFT32 Transmitter in a series to a modem and telephone line. 4. Run the Greyline TFS Tank Farm Supervisor program on your PC and configure it to display each tank level in your choice of engineering units (gallons, liters or any unit of measure). Set the program to dial-up tanks at remote locations with modems over regular telephone lines. Enable data logging for any or all of the tanks in your system. 5. Use Greyline TFS software to calibrate optional Control Relays for alarms or pump control - add up to 5 extra Relays for each tank. 6. Sit back and relax. No more climbing and dipping tanks for inventory. Let the TFS Tank Farm Supervisor software continuously scan your tank farm, display level alarms, and log individual tank inventory at programmable intervals to disk files on your PC. You can even share Tank Farm information over your PC LAN with optional Greyline TFC Client Viewer software. PC Software TFS Tank Farm Supervisor Runs on any PC with Windows™ 3.1+, Windows™ 95 or NT Requires only 2MB drive space plus allowance for data logging files Main Screen - TFS Tank Farm Supervisor TFS software displays the key information for each TFT32 Transmitter on one main screen: the tank or transmitter name, a bar graph representing tank level (or any other process variable), measurement units, temperature (ultrasonic sensors only), data logging status and relay status. The system scans 32 tanks in less than 8 seconds and updates the display continuously. It is simple and incredibly powerful! TFS software is supervisory— the TFT32 Transmitters, displays and control relays will continue to operate without PC connection or TFS software. You can run other programs on the PC at the same time. Program features are accessed through drop-down menus and settings are password-protected. A Help menu includes complete program information and instructions. TFT32 Transmitters can be connected in a network directly to your PC, plus they can be monitored through modems over regular telephone lines. With optional "Client" software, tank farm information can be shared over any PC LAN (Local Area Network). Tank Parameters Screen TFS software automatically reads basic calibration information from each TFT32 Transmitter. Use this screen to edit tank or transmitter names and the measurement units displayed on your PC. Choose "Linear" (length) units: inches, cm, etc., or "Volume" units: gallons, liters etc., or "Other" units like lbs, barrels, pH or gpm. Select "H.R.T." mode for volumetric display of horizontal round tanks. Changes in the Tank Parameters screen only affect the PC display (errors in settings will not affect calibration or operation of TFT32 Transmitters). Selection of "Other" units allows different types of instruments to be used in the system. Combine level or inventory monitoring with other process variables like flow, pH, conductivity, pressure etc. TFS software automatically converts different units of measurement as you change tank parameters. Data Logging Dial-Up Locations Data Logging functions are built into TFS software. Data is stored in comma delimited files on your PC disk drive. Connect to Tanks at any location with modems over regular phone lines. Set the starting time of day and how frequently each remote site is dialed. Automatically gather detailed information in separate "Inventory" and "Trend" logging files for each TFT32 Transmitter. Let your PC do the work automatically—up to 32 tanks or transmitters can be monitored at 32 separate locations. PC LAN Function Extra Control Relays Share tank farm information with others on your PC LAN. Any number of LAN "clients" can simultaneously monitor some or all transmitters in the system with optional TFC Client software. Clients can even create their own data logging files. Calibrate up to 10 optional RB12 Relay Boards from this password-protected screen. Assign up to 5 extra control relays to each TFT32 in the network. Set the operating mode, and ON/OFF setpoints for each relay. After calibration, extra relays communicate directly with the TFT32 Transmitters. Sensors Each TFT32 Transmitter requires one Sensor, or a 4-20mA signal input. Choose the best Sensor for each tank/application. Select from the Ultrasonic and Pressure models listed below, or order the TFT32 without a Sensor and supply your own 4-20mA signal input from an existing Transmitter. Consult your Greyline Representative for applications advice and chemical compatibility information.

Tank Farm Inventory and Control Greyline TFT32 Tank Farm Transmitter Combines Local Digital Displays with Centralized PC Monitoring Operators can view tank level with the TFT32's built-in 4 digit LCD display while inventory of the entire tank farm can be simultaneously monitored on a central PC computer. Install one Sensor and one TFT32 Transmitter for each Tank. Use your choice of ultrasonic and pressure sensors and mount a Greyline TFT32 Transmitter at a convenient location near each tank. Each TFT32 includes one built-in Relay that can be calibrated for level alarm, pump or valve control, temperature alarm, or sensor fault alarm. Additional control relays can also be installed in the system. Simple, Low-Cost Wiring Run a single 4-conductor wire from Transmitter to Transmitter terminating at your PC computer. Install optional Control Relays at any location in the network. Only one wire run is required for the entire system. Add modems and you can monitor tanks at any locations over regular phone lines! New - Client Software for LAN's You can configure the TFS Tank Farm Supervisor software program to allow PC's on any LAN (Local Area Network) to monitor some or all of the tanks in the system. Ideal for sharing information across Departments. With optional TFC-Client software LAN users can view selected tank/transmitter information and even write their own data logging files, but cannot make any changes in the monitoring network or calibration. Automatic Data Logging Create Graphs from TFS Data Log Files Automate your Tank Farm inventory by storing data logging files on your PC computer's disk drive. Greyline's TFS Tank Farm Supervisor software can store inventory at the end of each work shift, and/or store levels every few seconds, minutes or hours. Data logging can be enabled or disabled for each individual tank. Data log files can be used in any spreadsheet or database program. Not just Tank Farms... TFT32 Transmitters accept 4-20mA signal input from any transmitter. So you can measure process variables including pressure, flow, pH, conductivity, turbidity etc. TFS Tank Farm Supervisor software allows you to display and log data from each Transmitter in any engineering units.
