The Acu-Trac® Smart 485 economical level sensor was designed to allow the user maximum flexibility with its user programmable features. It combines level monitoring with RS-485 real time level messaging for storage containers with depths up to 1.9 meters (76 inches) for gasoline and 2.5 meters (98 inches) for other media.

The Smart 485 can be used in general industrial, heavy duty vehicle, diesel engine generators, and mining, agriculture, water and waste water markets.

The Smart 485 meets NEMA4 standards and has three different electrical outputs choices to best meet your level sensing application need - 4-20mA; ratiometric voltage (0.5 – 9.0V); and non-ratiometric voltage (0.5 – 9.5 V).
