Accurate fuel levels with shaped tanks

Industry Database

Raymarine's latest LightHouse software upgrade release now fully supports Oceanic Systems' Fuel Sender Volumetric output and tank shape calibration.

LightHouse Annapolis 3.9 software has just been released which can now calibrate and display Oceanic's Fuel Sender Volumetric data. This means the user can know exactly how much fuel they have on board no matter what shape their tank is.

This AXIOM software release allows installer or user to input their volumetric calibration information directly into the AXIOM and display the fuel remaining in the tank rather than just its level for greatest accuracy.

The 3271 Volumetric Fuel Sender provides accurate measurement and is switch settable to display the remaining fuel as either level or volumetric output.

It measures the tank level in 1% steps and provides a stilling action to dampen out fuel slosh in the tank to maximise accuracy when conditions are rough or the boat is travelling quickly.
