The NMEA 2000 Tank Adapter YDTA-01 allows you to connect an existing resistive type fluid level sensor installed on a tank and display the fluid level on NMEA 2000 devices, including chart plotters and instrumental displays.
The Adapter can be configured to report one of the seven fluid types defined in the NMEA 2000 standard: Diesel Fuel, Gasoline Fuel, Oil, Fresh Water, Waste Water, Black Water (Sewage), or Live Well. The tank number can be configured up to 16 tanks of one type are allowed in an NMEA 2000.
The Device can be used with European (10 to 180 Ohm range), American (240 to 33 Ohm range) or Japanese (0 to 310 Ohm range) standard fluid level sensors as well as with any nonstandard sensors with maximum resistance less than 400 Ohm.
The Adapter can be installed as a standalone measuring device, in parallel with an existing analog gauge (2-coils and 1-coils gauges are supported, see Picture 2), or in parallel with a Volvo Penta engine’s MDI (Mechanical Diesel Interface) box. If you have a combined gauge where you choose the value to display with a button, the Adapter will smoothly work with it, too.
