Paper Abstract

A novel oil tanks integrative parameters measuring system with optically powered are presented. To realize optical powered and micro-power consumption multiple channels and parameters detection, the system has taken the PWM/PPM modulation, ratio measurement, time division multiplexing and pulse width division multiplexing techniques. Moreover, the system also used special pulse width discriminator and single-chip microcomputer to accomplish signal pulse separation, PPM/PWM signal demodulation, the error correction of overlapping pulse and data processing. This new transducer has provided with high characteristics: experimental transmitting distance is 500m; total consumption of the probes is less than 150 (mu) W; measurement error: +/- 0.5 degrees C and +/- 0.2 percent FS. The measurement accuracy of the liquid level and reserves is mainly determined by the pressure accuracy. Finally, some points of the experiment are given.
