Powelectrics have been working with ChrisGage, Digital Lead, for IBM Industrial Products to develop ‘connected sensor solutions’ for a number of condition monitoring applications. IBM are using Powelectrics award-winning Metron telemetry devices to connect sensors to their IBM Cloud, a sophisticated web-based ‘platform as a service’ (PaaS)
National Trust uses solar-powered Metron2 telemetry to connect level sensors on waste tanks to the cloud, reducing tanker collections and helping ensure that facilities are always available to visitors.
