Tank Gauge Integration

Through the use of a plug-in interface module, the 8300 TGI can receive various types of measured data from tank gauging instruments, such as level, temperature, density, water level or alarms. With ten modules available, it is possible to integrate float & tape transmitters, HTG, servo, magnetostrictive or radar gauges using a single device.

Host Communications

The 8300 TGI combines with FuelsManager® to provide an extremely cost efficient and reliable tank inventory system that is compatible with a variety of other host systems through the industry standard MODBUS protocol.
