GSI-1500


The GSI-1500 Intelligent Field Interface (IFI) was the first field interface to integrate multiple electrical standards and protocols into a single system.


The IFI Rack was designed for a maximum of Sixteen (16) Field Interface Boards. Each Field Interface Board (FIB) is an intelligent field interface on it's own. Each FIB has a plug-in Personality Module (PM). There are corresponding PM's to most tank gauging manufacturers electrical standards and protocols. Thus, allowing the integration of multiple manufacturers technologies into one system.

The GSI-1500 Intelligent Field Interface (IFI) was the first field interface to integrate multiple electrical standards and protocols into a single system.

Used primarily as a means of bringing in multiple manufacturers tank gauging technologies into a DCS, SCADA, or Terminal Automation system. The speed of the IFI (data from the tank gauge to the HMI) is unmatched in the industry and needed within larger tank farms.

  • Maximum of 16 loops (FIB’s & PM’s), with up to16 different Electrical Standards and Protocols)
  • Multiple Loops each with a corresponding FIB (Field Interface Board) and PM (Personality Module)
  • FIB's simultaneously polled each field loop
  • Each field loop is individually polled, powered, and surge protected
  • Data from all FIB’s is communicated back over an ISA back plane to a CPU board in the IFI Rack.
  • IFI Rack - Industrial back plane with CPU, Hard Drive, Floppy Drive, Graphics Card, Field Interface Boards, and Personality Modules. The Win TG PRO Software is bid with the IFI - 19" Rack.
  • Power Supply Box (PSB) - Power Supplies, Surge Protection with field terminations, and Diagnostic Meter & Fuse panel (Up to 8 loops per PSB)
  • Most tank gauging manufacturers' technologies, electrical standards, and communication protocols are supported.
