Smartpro™
Oil, Grease and Solids
Radio Frequency Remote Monitoring System
OWNER’S MANUAL
(Version 2.0)
Description
The Smartpro™ Wireless RF is a unique radio frequency monitor
and alarm system that assists in managing oil, grease and sediment
levels inside commercial oil and grease interceptors. The battery
operated sensor mounted inside the interceptor detects oil, grease
and solids levels and communicates wirelessly to the control panel
mounted in the facility manager’s office or work area. The control
panel can be connected to a Building Automation System for remote
monitoring.

The Sensor and Control Box:
A)
B)
C)
Control box mounts inside the interceptor extension collar
(riser) with provided mounting bracket and mounting
bolts.
The sensor is attached to the control box with ¾” PVC
pipe supplied by installer.
The control box antenna is attached to the control box
and secured into ground surface near the manway cover
with clear silicone supplied by installer.
The Control Panel:
A)
B)
C)
D)
Typically installed inside the facility building
Mounted inside supervisor’s or Manager’s office for easy
access
Connects to 110 V outlet with supplied power supply
Equipped with Building Automation System connectivity –
see picture below.
Operation:
Oil or grease level as well as bottom solids level is monitored
throughout the day. Levels are transmitted wirelessly via a radio
frequency signal to the control panel inside the building.
The control panel can be programmed to read and report levels in
inches or as percent of interceptor capacity.
When a predetermined level of oil, grease, and solids is reached,
the control panel is programmed to visually alarm and notify facility
manager that it is time to pump out the interceptor.

Step-By-Step Installation Instructions
Install wireless monitor control
panel inside facility, keeping it (1)
near enough to 110V outlet to
plug it in and (2) on or near an
outside wall closest to the grease
interceptor (3) within a 300ft
radius in relation to the grease
interceptor.
Identify the location of grease interceptor, remove the manway access
cover to reveal the OUTLET side of the interceptor.
Install U-bracket level in manway riser with 2 mounting bolts provided.
Bolt holes should be drilled into the riser approximately 15” from grade
in a position where underwater probe does not have obstructions and
the manway cover will not interfere or damage the control box.

Owner’s Manual
Insert control box into the U-bracket as shown. Measure the distance
from the ¾” PVC elbow (with 6 wires) to the top of the grease
layer/liquid level (Dimension A). Then measure the liquid level to the
bottom of the tank (Dimension B) [See Figure 1]. Tank bottom must
have no sediment build-up to insure accurate measurement.
Cut ¾” PVC pipe to length (A + ½ B) so probe end is positioned in the
middle of the interceptor liquid level. Run the black wire from the probe
through the PVC pipe. Secure probe to the PVC pipe with PVC cement
to create a waterproof seal.
At top end of PVC pipe, cut black wire
approximately 6” longer than PVC pipe.
Strip black wire shielding to expose
wires but do not strip individual wire
jacketing.

Owner’s Manual
Pair the 6 wires from the control box with similar colored wires from
probe. Use waterproof connectors to splice and connect both sets of
wires. DO NOT STRIP the colored wires – the connectors pierce the
colored wire shielding to make adequate connections.
Remove the set screw from the control box elbow and push the
connectors down into the ¾” pipe and up into the ¾” elbow. Put a bead
of 100% silicone rubber on the outside end of ¾” pipe and push pipe
into the elbow until seated. Rotate the probe end so that when the
control box is inserted into the bracket and the probe end is in the tank,
the probe end is not facing a wall, pipe or any other obstruction and
then install the set screw into the ¾” elbow.

Installing Antenna Into Surface Material
Antenna Installation Part 1
Drill a 1” hole at 45 degree angle from surface to area in the
riser/extension collar above the mounting bracket and insert ¾” PVC
pipe conduit from hole to surface. Thread antenna wire through PVC
pipe with gold female end protruding from pipe nearest control box and
mounting bracket. Remove the red cover from the control box and
screw the gold female connector from the antenna onto the gold male
connector on the control box. Seal the connection with 100% silicone
rubber to provide waterproof seal.
Carry out Signal Connectivity Check on next page, and then return to
this step to complete antenna installation.
Antenna Installation Part 2 (to be done after Signal Connectivity
Check)
Cut a 9” long X 1” wide X 1” deep groove into the surface (concrete or
asphalt) to accommodate the antenna. Place antenna in groove and
cover and fill groove completely with 100% silicone rubber to seal.
Antenna should be completely encased in silicone. There must be no
antenna wire exposed at the surface which could be damaged by traffic.

Signal Connectivity Check
Remove cover from back of control box with 4 screws. Place probe
through U-bracket and into interceptor until control box elbow rests on
bracket (this is actually inserting the probe backwards at this point).
Plug battery into connector.
Press Button 1 on circuit board next to battery to initiate liquid level
reading and connectivity to control panel. Replace cover. Return to
previous page to complete Antenna Installation Part 2. View monitor
panel to ensure connectivity is established. Normal user mode screen
should appear.
NOTE: Press Button 2 at same time as Button 1 only in the event you
need to reset the system or as instructed by technical support
personnel.
