Description for OEM 7000

Overview

The OEM Rocket 7000 system is an electronic gauge that accurately and reliably measures the fuel level in your oil tank and transmits that information to a wireless receiver located in a convenient place in your home!

Features

  • Don't Run Out Again! Can prevent running out of oil during periods of heavy or unusual usage pattern, even if you have automatic delivery!
  • Eliminates the need to go down into the basement or outside to determine oil level. Simply monitor the Receiver LCD from within the comfort of your home!
  • Installs in less than 10 minutes!
  • More accurate and reliable than a mechanical float gauge
  • Suitable for both inside or outside tanks
  • Replaceable Lithium cell Transmitter battery lasts over 10 years.
  • Multiple receivers can be set up to receive from one transmitter
  • The omni-directional Transmitter allows the receiver(s) to be located anywhere within 150 ft of the transmitter.
  • Simple DIP switch settings allow one product to work on tanks up to 10 ft (3m) in height.
  • Multiple Transmitter/Receiver pairs can be colocated without interfering.
  • Automatic recovery following power outage - no need to re-synchronize receiver to transmitter.
Operation
  • The Transmitter is mounted in an available opening in the tank and uses ultrasonic technology to measure the fuel level.
  • The Receiver plugs directly into a 110v outlet located in a convenient place in your home - usually the kitchen.
  • The LCD display on the Receiver displays the oil level as "bars", where each bar represents approximately 10% of the tank's capacity.
  • When the level goes below 20%, the fuel oil Nozzle "icon" appears in the LCD display, indicating that it is time to call for fuel delivery. Note: If you have an "automatic delivery" contract with your oil dealer, you should wait until the level drops to about 10% before alerting the dealer to your oil level status.
  • When the oil level drops below 10% of the tank's capacity, the red LED will begin flashing continuously and a audible signal will sound once every hour. Call your oil company immediately to schedule a delivery. These warning signals will continue until the first measurement is made following an oil delivery (this could take up to one hour after the delivery).

              Work as expected and as describe in the documentation.
              Far more accurate than my previous regular gauge.
              Easy to install.

              Happy with the purchase and delivery time.

                    I have a 120 year old farm type house. Fuel oil tank is in the basement (actually in the old coal bin). Naturally, the basement is shallow with narrow stairs leading into the darkness. And of course, the fuel oil tank is in the farthest corner of the basement. I replaced the old "float style" tank gauge with the Rocket 7000. How wonderful it is to be able to check the oil level without venturing down into the basement. Improvements I would recommend: 1. Back light on receiver screen. 2. Optional battery power for receiver. 3. Wireless connection capability.

                    Install screws too short

                          I'm too lame to be going up and down the cellar stairs to check the fuel gauge. The Rocket fits the bill very well!! Only shortcoming: the mounting screws were too short to reach the tank adapter. Fortunately I had longer screws with the same diameter and thread type.

                                I have two houses and have several sources of heat; wood stoves, heat pump and wind turbine but rely on oil when it gets real cold. My usage is not predictable. The supplier at one of the houses installed one of these several years ago. After running out of oil at my other house this year, I decided to get a Rocket wireless fuel level monitor for that house and I ordered another for my son's house. The oil tanks at all three houses are in relatively inaccessible locations and the Rocket sensors work great. The hardest part of installing was getting to the tank and removing the plug that the sensor replaces. It took a couple hundred whacks with a sledge hammer on a two foot length of pipe extending the handle of a huge pipe wrench. I didn't have to change the dip switches at my house but did at my son's as he has two tanks mounted horizontally. After synchronizing the display to the sensor, it's a good idea to confirm that is working. I moved it back and forth on the kitchen counter aimed at the wall. It uses sonar to measure the distance to a reflective surface, that surface being the oil in your tank. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly my order was delivered.

                                      The Rocket arrived on time and was easy to install. The hardest part was getting the big bung nut off the top of the tank. Once that was done everything was pretty straight forward.

                                                  Being disabled, it is difficult to get down to the basement to check the oil tank gauge. The Rocket is the preferred alternative, and gives me peace of mind as to when to order an oil fill.

                                                              Install was easy, about 20 minutes. Set up and preliminary test indicated unit was functioning as advertised. Haven't used much fuel oil yet but the receiving unit has dropped one bar without any warning indications. I have a 275 gal. Tank located in a cellar and the receiver is plugged in one floor above about 30 feet from transmitter. I'll know in about a month, when the weather is colder and the heat is running more if things are okay. Instructions included with the unit are clear and easy to follow.

                                                                      Can the Rocket be used in conjunction with the typical tank gage? In other words, can I use both. One to monitor at the tank, and one to monitor remotely. Or will the internal float of the typical tank gage interfere with the Rocket?

My problem has always been with the cheap plastic gauges that are standard on the tanks. I live in the snow belt and the weight of the snow on the tanks tend to break them over time allowing water into the tanks. The Rocket is much more durable and screws in tightly and easily.
                                                                        In fact, I have used the Rocket for a few winters and have not had any problems with it. It was one of the best investments I have made. I no longer have to trudge through the snow to try to read the gauge. I have the monitor plugged in on the opposite side of the house. It is very accurate and I have only had to reset it once. Just unplug it and plug it back in.
                                                                        I only wish I had found this product sooner. I have duel tanks and one Rocket monitors both tanks. I highly recommend it and doubt that you would regret the purchase.
