Tank Level Monitoring For ATEX Environments

Distribution companies can benefit in many ways with our tank level monitoring systems for ATEX environments such as LPG, petroleum, kerosene, chemicals or fine powders. Powelectrics remote tank level monitoring solutions are easy to install and maintain. Our telemetry is reliable, flexible and affordable and it will interface into existing business tools, such as SAP. We connect your sensors to the internet, allowing you to view data securely through a simple web browser, visible on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Powelectrics are also a well-established and reputable sensor distributor, offering sensors from over 100 respected international suppliers.
Organizations in the EU must follow directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere. If you distribute or collect products with a risk of explosion, such as LPG, petroleum, kerosene, chemicals or fine powders, then Powelectrics can offer you products that comply with the ATEX regulations. Powelectrics offer several tank monitoring solutions to suit a range of requirements, including the Metron ATEX which is ideal for LPG tanks, when daily readings are needed to help with reordering & logistics. The Metron2 can also be with approved ATEX sensors & barriers, to achieve higher frequencies of transmission for theft detection and to see usage profiles on petrol forecourts.
The traditional view in bulk distribution or collection sectors, is that your customers are responsible for informing you when their tanks are ready to be filled or emptied. Powelectrics tank level telemetry can be offered as a service, to remove this responsibility, along with an assurance that they will not run out or overfill. This value added service can lead to greater commitment from customers and dramatically reduce logistics costs.  It can also allow you to identify unauthorised deliveries or collections from competitors. Our remote tank level monitoring systems are proven to reduce logistics and admin costs and help win business by enhancing customer service, improving safety and addressing environmental concerns. Powelectrics connected sensor solutions are easy to install and maintain. Our telemetry is reliable, flexible and affordable and it will interface into existing business tools.
The METRON ATEX is a class leading solution. Installation is quick and easy, with no intrusion to the customer’s property. Devices have six inputs, so you can use one device/SIM card to monitor 6 tanks, dramatically reducing costs. Our telemetry also offers integral, low-cost GSM/GPRS communications. Metron ATEX uses an internal battery and is completely self-contained, so it can also be deployed where there is no power available. Readings are sent wirelessly and data is delivered for use by your sales and route planning teams. Deliveries are optimised meaning costs are saved and customers have the security that they will not run out/overfill. Typical battery life is in excess of 4 years with one transmission every day. If the regular Metron2 is preferred to achieve higher frequencies of transmission for theft detection, then Powelectrics can engineer a solution using approved ATEX barriers.
Powelectrics data collection and viewing platform, MetronView, is a web based data logger, showing tables and graphs. For bulk delivery and collection applications, Powelectrics have developed bespoke software, which also includes theft and leakage alerts and the facility to set thresholds on individual tanks to alert you when tanks are reaching amber and red alert levels and even predict when individual tanks will need filling, based on recent usage. These colour coded sites can be plotted on a map, by postcode, for simple logistics planning. Data may be used to verify delivery dates and quantities for invoice reconciliation. Powelectrics software will also alert you if a device has not reported in. Metron View is easily badged and customised, delivering bespoke reports and data exports and it can interface via an API with existing management & control systems, such as SAP. We can work with you to develop a bespoke site for any application.
