AB Marine of Rhode Island has been selected to distribute Gobius Tank Monitors in the U.S. and Canada. Sweden-based Gobius recently introduced the Gobius4, an outside-the-tank monitoring system that requires no holes to be drilled for mounting.
The Gobius Technology system consists of a shaker and an accelerometer. It is best described as “knock and listen”, to measure fluid levels in all types of tanks. The sensors are mounted outside the tank so no holes need to be drilled. Unlike other tank monitors, the Gobius4 can be used on aluminum, plastic, stainless steel or fiberglass tanks of any shape and size. The control head maintains all of the calibration data even when the system is switched off so there are no worries about accuracy or reliability. Using advanced software, the data from each measuring device is NMEA 2000 compatible and can be shared through networks and read on WEMA, VDO and FARIA displays. Gobius4 systems draw less than 40 milliamps.
