Tank Sender Adapter - invert reading

Hi all,
Just wondering if there is a way to invert the level reading on the VE. Can resistive tank sender adapter. The level senders I have seem to operate the opposite way round, so when the tank is empty Victron reports it as full and when it's full, Victron reports it as empty (on Colour Control). Is there any way to sort this - if not it would be a nice little feature to add.

Cheers,

Will

There is not a way via the interface anyway. Maybe it will be possible to do it if you have some programming skills to invert the logic in the CCGX
It shouldn't need to be done though, those tank senders are based on international standards for level sensing (going back many decades based on old school analogue needle gauges at the wheel) . If your tank sensor is sending readings the wrong way then it is the part that needs to be corrected really.

Propane tank senders in the US operate the inverse of the rest of the world, just like most things in the US.

...your resistor symbol is easier to draw by hand and look better, when drawn fast ;o)

Wait, hold on a second, we may have missed something!
Did you select US Sensor from the device menu?

From the "Device List" select your Tank -> Setup -> Standard -> Choose US or European.
