Reference design for an automotive ultrasonic fluid stage monitor which employs a non-intrusive method to precisely measure the liquid even in harsh/enclosed environments.
TIDA-00322 is a reference design for an automotive ultrasonic fluid stage/high quality measurement. It may run on a variety of voltages from 4.5-40V system capabilities with reverse battery safety. This reference design makes use of ultrasonic sensors to measure the extent and high quality of fluids in automotive programs reminiscent of engine oil, transmission oil, and coolant.
The reference design is predicated on the Texas Devices’ TMS470R1B1M MCU, and ultrasonic transducers, the design can be utilized to detect and measure low fluid ranges, detect air bubbles within the fluid, and measure the fluid high quality by measuring the fluid dielectric fixed. This reference design can be utilized in a variety of automotive purposes, reminiscent of to watch engine oil stage, transmission oil stage, coolant stage and high quality.
This reference design affords a number of benefits reminiscent of:
- Excessive accuracy: The ultrasonic sensors used within the design are capable of present high-accuracy measurements of fluid ranges and high quality.
- Low energy consumption: The design makes use of a low-power microcontroller (TMS470R1B1M) and ultrasonic transducers, which helps to cut back the general energy consumption of the system.
- Simple integration: The reference design is pre-engineered and totally examined, making it simple to combine into an current system.
- Value-effective: The design makes use of off-the-shelf elements which will be simply sourced and are more cost effective than custom-made ones.
- Versatility: The design can be utilized to measure fluid ranges and high quality in a wide range of automotive purposes, reminiscent of engine oil, transmission oil, and coolant.
- Early detection: The design permits early detection of low fluid ranges and air bubbles within the fluid, which will help stop injury to the engine or transmission.
- High quality monitoring: The design also can measure the fluid dielectric fixed which permits monitoring the fluid high quality.
- Simple to make use of: The reference design gives a user-friendly interface and will be simply configured and calibrated to swimsuit the particular wants of the applying.
The reference design has been examined by TI. To simplify the designing course of, TI has supplied the entire set of Design Sources together with schematics, invoice of supplies, PCB structure, and take a look at recordsdata, which will be downloaded from right here.
