How to Calibrate a Fuel Tank
To calibrate a fuel tank for an analogue FLS (fuel level sensor), follow the steps below.
- Empty the tank completely. Make sure the vehicle accumulator is charged and will not go flat in a couple of hours.
- Cut the FLS to the necessary length and install it into the tank.
- Enable data transmission for the necessary input (for example, Ain1). It is recommended to set a frequent data transmission (like once in 10 seconds, for example).
- Draw a grid for your future calibration table. There will be two columns – Liters and Volts, and so many rows as parts you divide your tank into (+ O liters row). Write the beginning time of the operation.
- Divide the volume of your tank into 10-30 parts. Pour portions of fuel and each time write the current fuel level in the tank into your calibration table. Wait 2-3 minutes after each new portion. Continue till the tank is full. As a result, the first column of your table (Liters) will be filled in.
After that follow the instruction on setting calculation table in Wialon.
