Piher Tilt Sensors provide precision tilt measurements and can be employed in certain systems or components that contribute to fuel reduction efforts. Here are a few examples:

  • Fuel Level Monitoring: Tilt sensors can be utilized in fuel tanks to measure the level of fuel. This information is crucial for accurately estimating fuel consumption and optimizing fuel efficiency. Tilt sensors can detect the inclination or angle of the fuel tank, allowing for accurate measurement of the fuel level regardless of the vehicle’s orientation.

  • Fuel Tank Venting System: Tilt sensors can be incorporated into fuel tank venting systems to ensure proper ventilation and prevent fuel leakage. These sensors can detect the tilt angle of the vehicle or equipment and trigger appropriate actions, such as closing off the fuel tank vents when the vehicle is overturned or at extreme angles, to prevent fuel spillage.

  • Fuel Slosh Control: Tilt sensors can be used in fuel systems to control fuel sloshing, especially in applications where fuel movement can affect vehicle stability or accuracy of fuel measurements. By monitoring the tilt angle of the vehicle or equipment, the fuel system can adjust fuel flow or activate baffles to minimize fuel slosh and optimize fuel distribution.

  • Inclination-Based Engine Management: While not directly related to tilt sensors, some advanced engine management systems may incorporate tilt or inclination data as one of the factors to optimize engine performance and fuel efficiency. By considering the vehicle’s angle or tilt, the engine management system can adjust parameters such as fuel injection timing, throttle response, and transmission shifting to maximize fuel economy in specific driving conditions.
