Waste Collection

If you collect waste oil, human waste, or process by-product in bulk, Powelectrics IoT remote tank level monitoring solutions are proven to reduce logistics and admin costs, and help win & retain business by improving customer service.

Powelectrics M2M remote level sensing technology can be used to measure and report the level of any type of substance, to significantly reduce the cost of bulk collection. Powelectrics offer you 30 years' experience in sensing, instrumentation and communications.

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

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 a process or operation.

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.

Our SPS series of robust and affordable level sensors offers simple installation, proven reliability and great value. With option available for ATEX, hygienic and aggressive applications, they are widely used for fuels, water, waste, lubricants, chemicals and foodstuffs. For more information on our affordable range of SPS level sensors, click here.

For waste applications where a non- contact sensor is preferable, Powelectrics can offer advice, installation and support on a range of alternatives including radar and ultrasonic sensors.

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.
