transmitter so that the system code is
unique to your tank.
You only need to do this once.

convenient electrical socket and switch
on. The display screen on the front of
the receiver will show a flashing top bar
as shown in diagram. This indicates
that the receiver is awaiting a unique
code. The bar will continue to flash for 2

match the transmitter to the receiver.

display screen. When all 10 bars are
shown they will flash to indicate that
the unique code is transferred.
3 FITTING TRANSMITTER
This unit is only to be fitted
to a tank with a compatible
Rochester twin-site gauge
Check that the existing tank
gauge is of the same design
as the one on the end of the
cable from the TEKELEK
LPG Monitor. Then check
and note the reading on the existing gauge and remove the gauge
display only – This is held in place with two securing screws. Dispose of
the old gauge according to local environmental guidelines.
Fit the new gauge to the tank using the same screws. And check that
the level on the gauge is the same as before.
Locate the transmitter on a wall (with screws) or drain pipe (with cable
ties) in a position that is unlikely to be subject to impact causing damage
to the equipment.
Tidy up the cable so as not to cause an obstruction.
Do not fit the unit to the LPG feed pipe from the tank. The unit may only
be fitted to a non LPG carrying pipe.

should be received every hour. After initial installation it may take one
