Maretron's TLM100 is used to sense fluid levels of tanks by using ultrasonic
technology. Ultrasonic, or sound waves, are transmitted via the TLM100 mounted
at the top of the tank and the flight times of the sound waves to and from the
fluid are measured much like a depth sensor. What this means for you is that
there are no difficult to handle long probes protruding into the tank, which
often foul and/or corrode. Once the TLM100 calculates and transmits the fluid
level over the NMEA 2000® network, you can observe
tank levels anywhere on the vessel where there is an NMEA 2000®
compatible display such as Maretron's N2KView® vessel
monitoring system, or by Maretron's DSM150/DSM250
color graphics displays.
The TLM100 is capable of sensing fluid levels in tanks up to 40" (1.02m) in
depth. It can be used for diesel, fresh water, waste water, black water, and oil
tanks (see TLM150 for gasoline tanks or TLM200 for deeper tanks). Unlike most
tank senders that only work with rectangular tanks, the TLM100 can be calibrated
for irregular tank shapes so you can know the true fluid level in your tanks.
The TLM100 is mounted directly to the top of tanks using the industry
standard SAE J1810 5-hole mounting pattern. The TLM100 can also be mounted to
tanks with threaded tank openings using optional adapters that included both a
1.5" NPT and a 1.25" BSP adapter. There are other important TLM100 optional
accessories including an optional focus tube to permit use on boats with planing
hulls, which is required if the vessel spends a significant amount of time with
the bow pitched up.
Most importantly, the TLM100 is NMEA 2000®
certified so you can view any and all tank levels anywhere on the vessel when
using a compatible NMEA 2000® display. The TLM100 is
another key component of Maretron's N2KView® vessel
monitoring and control system.

Maretron’s Tank Level Adapter (TLM100) allows you to observe tank levels
anywhere on the vessel where there is a NMEA 2000 compatible display. The TLM100
senses the level of the fluid in the tank using ultrasonic technology
eliminiating the need for probes into the tank, which often foul or corrode.
This basic tank monitoring system monitors six tanks using Maretron’s 3.5”
color display and 6 Tank Level Monitors. The system can be calibrated for odd
shaped tanks so you get precision tank level information. And since the tank
capacity is programmable, you can see exactly how many gallons remain in the
tank. You can even combine different tanks into a single gauge or display,
eliminating the need to continually perform mental calculations.
