808-P2 SeeLeveL Special™ Truck Level & Volume Gauge
The Garnet Model 808-P2 SeeLeveL Special™ Truck Gauge provides an accurate digital readout of the amount of fluid in a truck or trailer tank. This battery-powered system’s long record of reliability and popularity have made it the industry standard in liquid level gauges throughout North America. Intrinsically safe, the 808-P2 is popular across a wide range of flammable, hazardous, and inert fluids. The all-digital design eliminates reading drift, ensuring longterm accuracy under all conditions without the need for costly and time-consuming re-calibration. Programmable with user-defined alarms, encased in weather-resistant enclosures and with displays easily readable in day and night conditions, the SeeLeveL™ series is the logical choice.

- Self-diagnostic features enable troubleshooting by mechanics
- Intrinsically safe, the 808-P2 is popular across a wide range of flammable, hazardous, and inert fluids
- Fiber optic connection between tank and display for complete electrical safety
- All-digital design eliminates reading drift, ensuring long-term accuracy under all conditions without the need for costly and time-consuming re-calibration
- Microprocessor-based technology provides a resolution of 1/3”
- Remote display ready; can transmit reading from main display to in-cab or outside remote display
- Calibrated (with the 817-USB programmer) to read in inches of level, or in volume units such as barrels, gallons, litres, or cubic meters
- Product density compensation adjustable by the operator
- High reliability – no moving parts except for the molded plastic float. Stainless steel float option available
- Micro power circuitry runs on internal batteries – no truck power is required
- Operation from -40 °C to +60 °C (-40 °F to +140 °F) ambient, up to +85 °C (+185 °F) product temperature
- Additional built-in overfill warning alarm can activate a horn or light; operator may manually bypass with side mounted push button
- Daytime viewable LCD display with a back light for night viewing; weather resistant enclosure is suitable for inside or
- Programmable output to operate a SpillStop™ overfill prevention system. Programmable alarm output can operate a
light, horn, isolation valve, or the MultiRack™ optic/thermistor rack controller
- Easy installation and servicing, one year limited warranty
- The 808-P2 operates using a magnetic reed switch sensor bar detecting the float magnetic field. The
- system provides a stable resolution of 1/3” and the fixed position of the reeds eliminates any need for recalibration
during the life of the gauge.
- The reed switch characteristics ensure stable gauge readings even with momentary slight variations in level.
- A 316 stainless steel seamless tube houses the sensor bar, and the fitting holding the tube in place can be either steel or stainless steel. The tube and polyethylene float are resistant to oils, fuels, acids, sewage, and most chemicals. The sensor bar is fully sealed to prevent moisture or product from damaging the bar. The bar can be ordered to fit any size tank up to 85” in height, and can be easily removed for servicing, or for use on another trailer.
- The circuitry in the sensor bar is powered by a lithium battery with a lifetime of approximately 10 years.
- Plastic fiber optic cable transports the information from the sensor bar to the display to provide complete electrical isolation for the components inside the tank. The fibre optic light level is ten times higher than required, so the fibre can be cut with a knife for easy installation; no polishing or special preparation is required.
- The gauge is calibrated during installation with the 817-USB programmer. The calibration can be done in inches of level, or in any volume unit desired, as long as a calibration table (volume vs. depth) is available for the tank. The display has four digits, allowing better than 1/4% accuracy on the readout.
- The SpillStop™ and alarm outputs are also programmed with the 817-USB programmer during installation, and may be altered at a later date if desired.
- An overfill warning feature permits a simple alarm to be operated and then bypassed by pressing a switch on the outside of the display enclosure. The alarm will automatically reset when the tank is empty.
- The 808-P2 display is powered by a lithium battery with a 10 year life. The LCD is large enough to allow display viewing from up to 15 feet away. For easy night viewing, the 808-P2 has a light behind the LCD which is powered by 12V truck power. The display is built into a Valox Betts enclosure, which is weather resistant and able to resist indirect road spray.
- SeeLeveL™ gauges can be used with other Garnet products to improve safety, economy, and convenience. The SpillStop™ overfill prevention system provides an automatic horn warning and pump shut down to prevent spills when loading with truck mounted PTO-driven pumps or trailer-mounted hydraulic pumps. The MultiRack™ controller provides optic and thermistor loading rack control to permit loading at rack-controlled facilities. Three different remote displays are available which can duplicate the gauge reading in the cab or on the other side of the trailer. The 828 can be used for data acquisition to allow the gauge reading to be transmitted via remote telemetry or connected to a serial printer to enable receipt printing by the operator.
- 20 years of service history with thousands in service in a large range of applications.
