Agriculture Sensors

Powelectrics connected sensor solutions can be used in hundreds of agricultural applications. We provide level sensors and monitoring solutions in boreholes and local rivers, fertiliser tanks, waste tanks, milk tanks or animal feed tanks. Our telemetry solutions are deployed for condition monitoring of agricultural machinery and pumping stations- alerting you if there was a loss of power, or a pump had tripped or levels were too high. Powelectrics telemetry solutions can connect thousands of different types of sensors to the internet, giving you secure web based data access through a simple web browser, visible on a computer, tablet or smartphone. You could be alerted if a temperature-controlled environment crossed defined temperature thresholds, putting your crops at risk, or if your LPG tank was running low, leaving your chickens frozen too soon! Powelectrics can use internet connected sensors to monitor your fuel tanks and levels and even alert you to leakage and theft.

Powelectrics connected sensor solutions are affordable, flexible and reliable. They are easy to install & maintain. Powelectrics Metron telemetry devices can use external power, internal battery or solar cell, which means they can be completely self-contained for temporary applications or where there is no power available. They offer integral, low-cost GSM/GPRS communications ATEX options and a high frequency of transmission. Devices have multiple inputs, so you can use one device/SIM card to monitor several sensors, including flow sensors, level sensors, temperature sensors, pressure sensors and environmental sensors, such as pH sensors, conductivity sensors, wind speed sensors, wind direction sensors, luminosity sensors and rain gauges. Our telemetry devices are compatible with thousands of sensors, such as hydrostatic sensors for liquid animal feeds or ultrasonic for solid and dry animal feeds. This flexibility allows Powelectrics tank level telemetry solutions to accommodate any shape or height of tank. Powelectrics are an established sensor distributor, offering sensors from over 100 respected international suppliers.
Powelectrics data collection and viewing platform, Metron View, is a web-based data logger, showing tables and graphs. It can send out alarms by email/text if a defined threshold is crossed or if a device has not reported in. Metron View is easily badged and customised, delivering bespoke reports and data exports and interfacing via an API with existing management & control systems. We can work with you to develop a bespoke site for any application.
