Bulk Liquid & Gas Distribution

If you distribute liquids or gases in bulk, Powelectrics IoT remote tank level monitoring systems are proven to reduce logistics and admin costs, and help win & retain business by improving customer service. Powelectrics offer you 30 years' experience in sensing, instrumentation and communications.

Remote Inventory Management/ Vendor Managed Inventory/ VMI  is the use of remote level sensing technology to measure and report the level of any type of substance, to significantly reduce the cost of bulk distribution (diesel, petrol, home heating oil, kerosene, biofuels, lubricants, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, animal feed, construction additives, AdBlue) and collection (waste, recycling).

Powelectrics technology can accomodate any shape or size of tank and contents may be liquid, gas, powder and even granules.

By knowing when a tank needs attention, efficient logistics can be planned and costs reduced. No wasted journeys, panic deliveries/collections or part load returns. 

Moreover, service and supply contracts can be won and retained by offering enhanced service levels to end-users and removing the responsibility for them to check their own levels and arrange deliveries/collections.

Personal, process and environmental safety is also protected by avoiding run-outs and overspills as well as maximising margins by avoiding the need to stop production.

Our Metron4 m2m telemetry devices are afforable, easily installed and can report data from up to four tanks. Data and alerts are sent wirelessly at user-defined intervals to unlimited authorised users, wherever they have web access... to smart devices, laptops, desktops.

With solar, battery and external power options, compact IP67 enclosure and operational temperatures - 25 to +65°C, Metron4 is extremely versatile. This highly affordable IoT unit supports 2G and 4G for global deployment, even where 2G is switched off.

MetronView is our standalone cloud, with customisable dashboards, reporting & alarms. It is a highly secure and scalable IoT solution, processing millions of readings daily and offers an API, so data can be collected by other data platforms. More here.


For bulk collection and distribution applications, Powelectrics offer a bespoke portal, MetronTMS (Tank Monitoring System). Thresholds can be configured for individual tanks to alert customers when tanks are reaching amber and red alert low levels and even predict when individual tanks will need filling, based on recent usage. Theft and leakage alerts can also be set up. Tanks can be plotted on a map, by colour code and postcode to enable efficient logistics planning. More here.
