The Metron4 has 4 inputs - they can be 4-20mA, 0-10 volts or volt free contacts. It also has two optional relay outputs. In addition to 4 analogue inputs (4-20mA), there are expansion cards for pulse counting (5 channels) and RS232 and options to develop RS485 and CANBUS interfaces.
Yes, we can. We have multi network sim cards for the Metron4 giving the best coverage even in rural locations and we offer fixed pricing across Europe and often beyond. The sim cards are extremely affordable and secure.
Yes, we have a battery powered Metron4 . We can fit a D cell sized battery that has a lot of power. Please note they are special batteries and you need to contact Powelectrics about replacements.
Yes, we have mains powered Metron4 options available from simple “plug in the wall” type power supplies through to some DIN rail mount versions and even some with battery backup included with mains fail monitoring.
This depends on the regime, i.e. how often readings are being taken, how much power the sensors need and for how long, and how often readings are being transmitted. There are external factors which will effect battery life such as temperature and the local network conditions but in general if we are taking a reading once per day and sending it then we get around 4 years from Metron4, though the record is an equivalent of 13 years!
Metron4 is IP67 and designed to be mounted outside, exposed to wind, rain and whatever else. You need to make sure you follow the instructions for mounting the unit including fitting the covers over the mounting screws and fixing the lid down securely but not too tightly.
