Commercial fleets worldwide are installing FloScan to obtain a complete record of diesel fuel consumption on a vessel-by-vessel basis. FloScan’s proprietary DataLog Fuel Monitoring Software, included at no-charge with every FloNET Fuel Monitoring System, now has built in Geo-Fencing capabilities for inland river fleet operators that can automatically track fuel used when transiting through an unlimited number of geographic areas set to correspond to various tax rates and regulatory authorities. The information is collected and recorded by DataLog in a spreadsheet format that allows the fleet system administrator to easily incorporate geographical triggers so when the vessel enters one predefined boundary, the program will record propulsion fuel consumption on a minute by minute basis until it exits that area and crosses into the next predefined area. The data captured can be quickly retrieved directly from the system or via preset broadcast email uploads to fleet operations for ease of use in various types of government tax filings. This saves time, eliminates guesswork, and provides irrefutable evidence of how equipment was used in the field for various tax, regulatory and legal applications. With more than 750,000 installations worldwide over the past 40 years, FloScan Fuel Monitoring Systems set the industry standard and are the safest and most cost effective solution on the market today.
FloNET Fuel Monitoring Systems fit virtually all diesel engines rated from 25hp - 6000hp. Each system utilizes turbine flow sensors which feature our "Fail-Open" design for optimum safety and accuracy. FloScan flow sensors are also ISO 19920/19921 Fire Test Certified with ABS approval now available upon request.
FloNET Systems can be easily installed onto an existing NMEA 2000 or CANbus network using DeviceNet cabling and connectors. Complete network components are also available through FloScan factory-direct.
DataLog was developed to meet customer demand for recording fuel usage data for NOx emissions reporting and to simplify fuel inventory control. It also provides the captain with valuable real-time fuel flow data to pinpoint the engine speed to improve fuel economy up to 20% or more.
Records and displays:
- net fuel flow rate
- net fuel usage
- supply flow rate and temperature
- return flow rate and temperature
- vessel speed over ground
- vessel fuel efficiency
- GPS coordinates
The data is recorded as a CSV file for generating spreadsheet reports. It can be easily transferred to a flash drive or automatically e-mailed from the vessel to the home office using our new DataNET option.
