level sensor / ships
Wärtsilä SAM Electronics
The Wärtsilä Smart VS Level sensor is a complete standalone level measuring unit specifically designed for the continuous monitoring of flooding in the dry compartments, bilges and void spaces of ships. It uses APSS Smart-VS-Level sensors to comply with the Safe Return to Port (SRtP) rules.
The hydrostatic pressure of a liquid is directly measured by sensors that are in direct contact with the liquid, while the presence of liquid is independently detected by a float switch. The digital signals corresponding to the pressure measured and to the detection of liquid, each by an independent sensor, are either used locally or transmitted to a centralized system.
