Fuel sensor


BA-FM1 fuel meter was studied by Binh Anh Electronics and manufactured completely in Vietnam.

BAFM fuel meter was designed for measuring level of fuel and fuel consumption rate. BAFM fuel meter can be used for many shapes of fuel tanks. BAFM fuel meter can be integrated as part of fuel monitoring system, in replacement of vehicle’s traditional fuel indicator.

BAFM’s main functions:

  • Collect data on current vehicle’s fuel level
  • Identify fuel quantity added to the tank when refueling
  • Identify any fraud activities to illegally take out the fuel
  • Support for remote fuel monitoring
  • Support to determine level of fuel consumption rate

Main features

  • Smart software helps adjust the sensing range from 200 to 2000mm without re-configuration needed.
  • Integrated with thermal sensor, tilting sensor to adjust fuel level in accordance with position and thermal dilatation
  • Easy installation; protection of over voltage, over current
  • Support for remote firmware update (FOTA) via Binh Anh positioning system
  • Measurable for oil, petrol and many other media
  • Measurable for oil, petrol and many other media

Certificate of Calibration

Fuel measurement is conducted via height measurement. The laboratory conducts the sample data collection, including 10 measuring points (700mm height), after that the tank is fueled at any level, then the sensor result is recorded, the deviation is listed in the result table.
