2) Alarm Relay
An alarm relay is available for each channel that provides a Form C (NC-C-NO) contact rated at
120 VAC at 3 Amps. The alarm is activated whenever the actual tank level is either lower than the LO
set point or higher than the HI set point. The relay is de-activated when the level is restored within the
normal operation range. Figure 2 below show connection details for the contacts.

3) Analog Outputs
A 0-5 Volt analog output is also provided for each channel. This output is typically used to
connect to a remote monitoring device, programmable controller, etc. in order to access LPG tank levels.
For Channel 1 connect to TB1-Top Level-2 and TB1-Bottom Level-2 and for Channel 2 connect to
TB1- Top Level-3 and TB1-Bottom Leve l-3 (refer to figure 4C below). Figure 3 shows a graph of the
analog output verses the LPG level. This output can be connected to a signal conditioner to provide a 420 mA signal indicative of the LPG level. Refer to figure 4 for more details on connection to external
devices.

PC Connections using RS232 Serial Interface
a) RS232 serial port 1 connection and operation (DEV port)
This serial interface port can be connected to a PC using MDi cable #mdi-232-10. Using communication
programs such as Microsoft HyperTerminal the user can set alarm set points, view current levels, change signal
type, etc. The unit port is set to operate at 9600 BAUD, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no handshake. It is a
simple 3-wire interface i.e. transmit, receive and ground. Once the cable is connected from the PC com port to
the unit’s DEV port, press enter on the HyperTerminal window and the unit will respond with a menu. This
menu is self explanatory and as mentioned, parameters can be set/changed per user’s requirements. Figure 5
below shows details of the HyperTerminal window with the unit menu.

b) RS232 serial port 2 connection and operation (COM port)
This serial port is connected the same as port 1 using MDi cable #mdi-232-10. The port is also to
operate at 9600 BAUD, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no handshake. It continuously sends out a
data packet as shown in figure 6 below. This port is primarily used to connect to a PC or a Remote
Terminal Unit (RTU) to retrieve live tank level data for use in other monitoring systems.

Programming Low and High Set Points
There are 5 pushbuttons on the main board that are used to program the set points. Four
pushbuttons are blue and are marked SW1, SW2, SW3 and SW4 form left to right. The fifth pushbutton
is red and is marked SW5 and is used to change the direction of the Set Point count when being
programmed by the other pushbuttons as described below. Only one set point must be modified at a time
i.e. pressing SW1-SW4 at the same time may result in error. Refer to figure 8 below for details.
a) Programming Tank 1 – Low Set Point
This set point is programmed by pressing the blue push button marked SW1. The low Set point
for L1 will either increase of decrease. Set it to the desired value and the unit will automatically save
it. The increase/decrease direction can be changed by pressing SW5 momentarily.
b) Programming Tank 1 – High Set Point
This set point is programmed by pressing the blue push button marked SW2. The High Set point
for L1 will either increase of decrease. Set it to the desired value and the unit will automatically save
it. The increase/decrease direction can be changed by pressing SW5 momentarily.
c) Programming Tank 2 – Low Set Point
This set point is programmed by pressing the blue push button marked SW3. The low Set point
for L1 will either increase of decrease. Set it to the desired value and the unit will automatically save
it. The increase/decrease direction can be changed by pressing SW5 momentarily.
d) Programming Tank 2 – High Set Point
This set point is programmed by pressing the blue push button marked SW4. The High Set point
for L1 will either increase of decrease. Set it to the desired value and the unit will automatically save
it. The increase/decrease direction can be changed by pressing SW5 momentarily.

Hardware Installation
1)
DO NOT INSTALL THE SENDER AT THE TANK, YET.
2)
Locate the place where the monitor is to be installed. Drill four holes according to the dimensions shown
in figure 7. Remove the lid of the monitor (undo 4 corner screws). Mount the monitor using the
appropriate screws to fit through the feed-through holes on the four corners.
3)
Temporarily connect the two sender wires directly to the monitor TB1-GND1 and TB1-SN1. It does not
matter which sender wire is connected to which TB3 terminal (refer to fig. 1).
4)
Connect Relay contacts and Analog output s as desired. Refer to figure 3 for connection details.
5)
Connect power to the monitor either using the supplied 120 VAC transformer or a 10-24 VDC power
source supplied by the user. Refer to figure 1 for connection details.
6)
APPLY POWER TO THE MONITOR.
7)
The sender level can be changed manually by holding a small magnet at the bottom of the sender and
rotating is clockwise or counter-clockwise such that the orange pointer in the sender follows the magnet.
Observe the appropriate Level reading on the LCD display (L1 or L2) It should follow the LPG level
indicated by the orange pointer.
8)
Set the Low and High set points using the 5 pushbuttons as described in set point programming section
above. When the level on the sensor is blow the low set point or above the high set point the
corresponding alarm relay will activate and the offending set point will blink on the display.
9)
Disconnect power to the unit and the LPG sender. Install sender on the LPG tank.
10)
Install and connect the cable between the sender and the monitor. Any 2 conductor, shielded, 16 to 22
awg., multi-strand, multi conductor cable can be used for this purpose. NOTE: if this cable is not installed
in a conduit, then be sure to select a good outside grade cable that can be used for direct burial if
necessary.
11)
Apply power to the unit and make sure that the monitor is displaying the correct LPG level observed at
the tank.
