BEP Marine’s TS1 (Tank-Level Sending Unit)

Tank sending unit. Ultrasonic Tank Sender - Tank Level Gauges - BEP Marine
Has anyone used one?
Do you like it?
I'm thinking of using these for my tank monitoring.

I'm just about to buy 6 or 7 of these and so if anyone has ANY experience with them, I'd certainly be interested in hearing from them.

Thanks,
Extemp.

I don't know anything about the ultrasonic tank monitor systems. I use the Hart tank tender system The Tank Tender - by Hart Systems, Inc. which uses no electricity so it is simple and basicly bullet proof. I've been using my present system (for one fuel tank and two water tanks) for about 16 years on Mobetah with absolutely no problems. I ordered new tubes (that go down into the tank) after I installed a a new fuel tank and a new water tank (when the system was probably 15 years old) and they sent them to me at no charge.

A great product and great people to do business with ...... you can't beat that combination!

Good luck, Bill A.

BEP dealers?

I have some of the old BEP tank sending units which aren't manufactured anymore, so was told that the TS1 would seamlessly replace those by the service rep. He said he has them on his boat and that they work well, but I imagine he is a bit biased.

Where have you found these sold? I am having trouble locating them.

I have the BEP readout unit and two sensors. They work perfectly, although I didn't have to recalibrate them for non-lineairity, which could be a daunting task. Its a simple bold-on replacement for old sensors and the wiring is simple too: + and - voltage and one sensor wire to the readout. The readout unit can handle 3 sensors. The display has different ways of showing tank contents, if necessary you can have 3 levels in one display. Recommended!

Welcome to the forum!

BEP is and Actuant Corporation Company.
You can likely get them from outlets that sell Marinco or Ancor products, but it may be a special order.
Actuant also owns Marinco and Ancor.
You probably know that you can likely use many other sending units also?

Where do you live?

Extemp.-
thanks. I have found a couple of dealers that will sell at list on special order, but I was hoping to find someone who stocked online.

I have a BEP head unit that handles tank input, elec monitoring, etc., so didn't want to chance non-compatibility or difficulties in calibrating with another sending unit. I also like the idea of ultrasonic (if it really works), and not having to cut tubes/wires, etc.

My boat is "Quiet Ride", a Saga 409 berthed in San Diego.

Re: BEP Marine’s TS1 (Tank-Level Sending Unit)

I installed two for my fuel tanks. They are a very strange shape. I was able to program them to fit the tank. I estimate they are within 1 gallon of the actual amount. I like them so much I am installing a third on my water tank.
