On Board Diagnostics

Allows the gauge to be upgraded, updated


or completely changed to function differently.
Potential upgrades:
Add new features and options
Change protocol in future for communication
with equipment that does not yet exist.
Update or upgrade on-the-fly
Minimal amount of down time
Flashable via PDA, Laptop or Desktop computer.

Displays Level, Temperature, Date,


Time and various process inputs.
On-board diagnostics include condition
of on board parameters such as:
supply voltage
component current draw
chip voltage
watchdog status
Diagnostic data can be sent back to a
gauging system to diagnose, prevent
or anticipate field failures.
Logging of Level History and Alarm
History with time stamp (optional upgrade)

ACCURATE LEVEL AND... MUCH MORE
PREVENTS FIELD PROBLEMS
ELIMINATES FIELD VISITS
ELIMINATES E-PROM UPGRADES
ELIMINATES RE-CALIBRATION
ELIMINATES BATTERIES
ANTICIPATES TRANSMITTER PROBLEMS
TRIPS LOCAL ALARMS, EVEN DURING COMMUNICATION LOSS
AVAILS THE DATA ON CENTRAL LOCATION FOR DISTRIBUTION
PROVIDES TEMPERATURE, PRESSURE, AND OTHER DATA
MONITORS FIELD AND INTERNAL PARAMETERS
AND, OH YES, CONVERTS MECHANICAL LEVEL INTO DIGITAL SIGNAL

SELF MONITORING 24 HOURS A DAY
ANALYZE THEMSELVES AND REPORT
PINPOINTS POTENTIAL TROUBLE BEFORE IT HAPPENS

EXAMPLE
LOW VOLTAGE COULD INDICATE WATER IN CONDULET BOX

SURFACE MOUNT PC BOARD TECHNOLOGY IS MORE RELIABLE

SMALLER, HIGHLY INTEGRATED COMPONENTS


LESS HEAT GENERATED
STRONGER CONNECTION
FEWER COMPONENTS, FEWER FAILURES

EXAMPLE
SURFACE MOUNT LASTS MANY TIMES LONGER THAN OTHER
METHODS OF PC BOARD CONSTRUCTION

MCG 2000SFI SMART FLASH INFRARED TRANSMITTER


NO BATTERIES ELIMINATES RECALIBRATION
POWER LOSS DOES NOT AFFECT LEVEL INFORMATION IN SFI
UNSTABLE POWER SUPPLY IS ACCOMMODATED BY SFI

EXAMPLE
WHEN POWER IS RESTORED TO TANK, THE 2000SFI IS
READING THE SAME LEVEL AS THE MECHANICAL GAUGE.
NO NEED TO RECALIBRATE
FOR COMPETITORS IF POWER IS OFF MORE THAN 24 HOURS,
THEY MUST GO TO FIELD AND RECALIBRATE EVERY
TRANSMITTER. IF TOTAL OFF TIME IS MORE THAN 100 HOURS,
THEY MUST GO TO FIELD AND RECALIBRATE AND CHANGE
EXPENSIVE BATTERIES ON EACH AND EVERY ONE.

MCG 2000SFI SMART FLASH INFRARED TRANSMITTER


ABSOLUTE OPTICAL ENCODING TRACKS CHANGES DURING
POWER LOSS
+ 1/32 ACCURACY
NO FEELERS OR BRUSHES TO WEAR OUT
ELIMINATES RE-CALIBRATION EVEN AFTER A POWER LOSS

EXAMPLE
IF THE LEVEL IN TANK MOVES DURING POWER LOSS, THE
2000SFI DISPLAYS CORRECT LEVEL WHEN POWER IS
RESTORED DUE TO ABSOLUTE OPTICAL ENCODING.
NO NEED TO RE-CALIBRATE

MCG 2000SFI SMART FLASH INFRARED TRANSMITTER


The MCG-2150 Remote Calibrator is one of many unique engineering advancements in the L&J
product line. It came out with the MCG-1500XL version of the servo gauge, and provided a simple
convenient method of programming and calibrating the servo without removing the housing. The
addition of the infrared pick-up to the ground level display, added the further convenience of being
able to completely program and calibrate the servo at ground level without the need to climb tank.
The extreme convenience and simplicity of the remote calibration and programming feature provided
a popular selling feature for the MCG-1500SFI.

All of the L&J Gauges and Transmitters are available with built in infrared pickups, and the capability
of being completely programmed and calibrated with the MCG-2150 Remote hand-held infrared
calibrator. All of the L&J Smart Flash and Super-Smart version gauges and transmitters are
equipped with an on-board LSI microprocessor chip. The power of this on-board processor provides
the gauges and transmitters with almost unlimited optional capabilities. Until now setup of these
optional features had to be either pre-programmed, downloaded, or jumper selected. With the
addition of the infrared pick-up setup and programming can now be done right at the local display
without even removing the housing.
