GUARD LEVEL® PTDU

Portable Temperature Display UnitThe GUARD TEMPTM PTDU (Portable Temperature Display Unit) is an intrinsically safe battery-operated temperature display device. When connected the GUARD TEMPTM BCTU, it provides for quick and easy tank temperature indication of up to three measurement points simultaneously.

The BCTU can be configured to display either Fahrenheit or degrees Celsius. With its gold-plated spring connector and coaxial design, the BCTU is easily connected/disconnected to the PTDU.

GUARD LEVEL® CMS+

Our GUARD LEVEL® CMS+ (Cargo Monitoring Software) is an embedded alarm and monitoring software providing a highly functional and user-friendly graphical software experience.

CMS+ guarantees safe loading, monitoring and control of cargo, ballast and fuel tanks. The software comes preloaded onto the Master Control (MCU) and Work Station Units (WSU) or can run separately on an onboard PC. Powered by the advanced Intel i7 processor, this versatile Windows tile-based system makes it easy to configure and set up custom screens to manage your cargo.

CARGORADAR®

The CARGORADAR® series is a mainstay for your tank gauging needs. Through our OEM Vega Americas’ partnership, we’ve produced a high tech, high accuracy (+/-2mm) non-contact ullage measuring instrument. Add a built-in tank pressure sensor, or interface with tank temperature sensors for inherently low power consumption – all while assuring reliability and high performance.

GUARD LEVEL® Twin Series

Our GUARD LEVEL® 07324 TWIN series are highly reliable level alarm sensors for tank barges and tank ships providing the ultimate defense against tank overfill conditions – with a mounted flange that can accommodate optional radar level gauges.

Built upon our trailblazing 07324 MKII design and the proven principle of a float with magnetic actuation of a highly reliable bi-stable dry switch contact, the sensors can be applied as a single or dual point alarm sensor (1A or 2A). And, with a built-in test rod, full functional testing can occur before top tank loading.

GUARD LEVEL® Signals

Our external alarms are constructed in stainless-steel housing and mounting base, utilize a high strength acrylic lens for additional light protection, and are housed in a watertight NEMA 4X IP67 junction box. Bergan light fixtures are visible at one million CP (Candlepower) and 90 flashes per minute.

Our MEDC electric horns are 117 decibels with tone modulators for differing tone frequencies and 316L stainless steel mounting painted to match the associated alarm light color. Explosion-proof electric horn units and air horns with explosion-proof solenoids are available as well.
