FLD-FBS is an intrinsically safe high-performance monitoring module designed for detecting leaks of refined products or crude oils in extreme environmental conditions. The device is engineered for outdoor installation in challenging environmental conditions. The measurement frontend is designed for interfacing with reusable, fully passive hydrocarbon sensor cables and sensing probes manufactured by Naftosense.
The multiplexed architecture of the acquisition module allows up to 8 individual sensor sections not exceeding 82 ft (25 m) per FLD-FBS.
Advanced measurement techniques and data treatment algorithms are used to provide intelligent thresholding for eliminating the nuisance alarms due to the presence of motor/lube oils, greases, residues of old leaks, etc.
This monitoring module is controlled through the Naftosense ERBUS proprietary field bus allowing reliable communication over distances exceeding 6.2 Miles (10 km). ERBUS provides also provides low voltage power supply to each FLD-FBS from a single multiplexed lead wire attached to a FLD-TSP7 or FLD-SMP-MB.
