LPG Tank Monitoring System
The Metron ATEX GSM Telemetry device
The Metron ATEX has been proven to save 24% of deliveries, improving efficiencies and driving down costs whilst at the same time increasing customer satisfaction & retention and lowering CO2 emissions.
LPG Tank Level Monitoring
The Metron ATEX is easily installed without access into the customers property. Long battery life, low cost communications and multi-tank monitoring capabilities make the Metron ATEX the lowest cost solution for remote LPG tank monitoring.
Installation is quick and easy and the reliability is high, whilst the flexibility of Powelectrics ensures you get what you need from your tank level telemetry project.
The IN4MA Metron ATEX is a high quality but affordable telemetry device well suited to LPG tank level montoring, giving high reliability and low running costs. It has a long battery life and can monitor up to 6 tanks on one site.
Wireless Remote Monitoring
Communication is via the mobile phone network, so you don't need access to anything other than the tank itself and customers cannot inadvertently interrupt communication by unplugging the phone line, as with land line solutions. The Metron powers the level sensor, takes a reading, and then sends the reading. We can send you alarms by text message or email if the tank level is getting low.
The unit has in-built diagnostics for ease of use, is locally and remotely programmable and has an exceptional battery life of around five years. The unit draws just 3.1 micro amps and intelligently pulls current from the battery in order to provide power to the GSM engine as required.
The intelligent power control not only ensures the maximum possible battery life is achieved but also provides the strongest signal to the mobile network, especially when using GPRS. The Metron works with Metron VIEW. This is a web based data acquisition solution. The data is sent from the Metron to Metron VIEW. The user logs onto a secure web site, select the unit he wants to view data from, the tanks they want to view and the date range, and then create a suitable report. It is quick to setup, requires no IT support and the costs are applied on a monthly basis (no up front software or hardware costs).
We provide the facility to collect your data so you can view on the internet but you can also automatically collect the data and then interface automatically int your business systems. This makes the chance of getting significant payback a lot higher. We have 2 low level alarms (re-order and critical) and these can be set differently for each tank - we can send you emails and text messages if a tank is getting low so you can then become reactive rather than pro-active.
By fitting the METRON ATEX you can immediately make savings.
Would you like to:-
- Increase delivery volumes and reduce part load returns?
- Improve customer service and confidence?
- Initiate proactive delivery scheduling?
- Eliminate run outs and emergency deliveries?
- Minimize order processing errors?
- Reduce man power and unattended deliveries?
When you are beneath a metal manhole cover the signal on the GSM network is reduced. Thanks to the advanced power management of the Metron ATEX the maximum amount of power is delivered to the modem and the maximum signal strength is achieved.
In addition to this the Metron ATEX has a well tuned antenna maximising the signal strength and giving you the best chance of success.

The use of tank level telemetry for inventory management helps to significantly reduce distribution costs. As the cost of fuel continues to go up, the demands from customers get greater and as competiton increases the need for remote tank level monitoring has never been greater and the benefits are clear. The Metron ATEX for is successfully used for remote tank level monitoring with cost savings being made immediately with 24% fewer deliveries needed.
