The Maretron TLM200 Tank Level Monitor transmits fluid levels via ultrasonic sound waves that bounce back and forth in the tank.
Maretron's TLM200 is used to sense fluid levels of tanks using ultrasonic technology. Ultrasonic, or sound waves, are transmitted via the TLM200 mounted at the top of the tank and the flight times of the sound waves to and from the fluid are measured much like a depth sensor. What this means for you is that there are no difficult to handle long probes protruding into the tank, which often foul and/or corrode. Once the TLM200 calculates and broadcast the fluid level over the NMEA 2000 network, you can observe tank levels anywhere on the vessel where there is an NMEA 2000 compatible display such as the Maretron DSM250.
The TLM200 is capable of sensing fluid levels in tanks up to 104" in depth. It can be used for diesel, fresh water, waste water, black water, and oil tanks. Unlike most tank senders that only work with rectangular tanks, the TLM200 can be calibrated for irregular tank shapes so you can know the true fluid level in your tanks.
The TLM200 is mounted directly to the top of tanks using the industry standard SAE J1810 5-hole mounting pattern. The TLM200 can also be mounted to tanks with threaded tank openings using optional adapters that include both a 1.5" NPT and a 1.25" BSP adapter.
Most importantly, the TLM200 is NMEA 2000 certified so you can view any and all tank levels anywhere on the vessel when using a compatible NMEA 2000 display. The TLM200 is another key component of Maretron's N2KView vessel monitoring and control system.

It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
As a research project underway at the University of California (UC) - Santa Barbara shows, sometimes you’ve got to leave the Earth to adequately study some of its most basic processes. Researchers at the university are partnering with the International Space Station to complete an investigation of fluid dynamics. The lab in microgravity is providing them with an important dataset for gauging the impacts of the force on our planet’s fluid movement. The experiments in space , to be run by astronauts, are fairly straightforward. Cameras will be employed to monitor different sediment particles as they interact with one another in fluid in near-zero gravity. Light shone at and through the setups will help researchers track the motion and observe the density of the particles.Read More
A sampling project led by University of Rhode Island researchers is helping to reveal the dynamics of aquatic health in three streams while supporting undergraduate education and local drinking water. The effort, relying on dip nets and handheld water quality meters, also gave students the chance to connect with Rhode Island’s hydrology. For Britta Anderson, graduate student in the department of geosciences at the university, the project offered something else. “Last summer was my first summer, so I had experience and the knowledge from that,” said Anderson, who oversaw undergraduate students who assisted during this year’s leg of the project. “I was able to continue this summer as more of a mentor.Read More
