Sensing and Telemetry News
Powelectrics have delivered an IoT solution for a major supplier of environmental services. Their end user is a telecoms company with transmission facilities around the UK. Some are not connected to the sewage system and have septic tanks to collect waste, which must be emptied before filling or over-spilling. The Powelectrics connected sensor solution avoids the need to physically check tanks or guess when they need emptying!
Powelectrics connect the world of sensors and the Internet of Things, offering 25 years’ sensor experience, our own telemetry devices and extensive experience integrating third party hardware. Our MetronView data platform is a standalone cloud, with a standard API, which means data can be simply collected by existing platforms or by bespoke application-specific portals, created by us or by our customers. The API also allows integration to software like Navision, SAP, SCADA and platforms like IBM Watson, Microsoft Azure, AWS and Miimetiq.
Powelectrics have delivered an Industry 4.0 solutions for a major supplier of environmental services. Our connected sensor solution is installed at electricity sub-stations, where oil is collected from transformer bunds. The oil is skimmed off and put into IBCs. Level sensors in the IBCs are connected to our MetronView cloud via Powelectrics Metron2 m2m devices and alerts sent when collection is required.
