Powelectrics Metron4 Enclosure is Designed for Global IoT Telemetry Applications ... Even in Temperatures -25 to +65°!!

Posted on 14 Oct 2019

At Powelectrics, we pride ourselves on using over 25 years’ experience in sensors and instrumentation to offer the highest quality and most application specific Industry 4.o solutions. We design and supply our own Metron telemetry IoT hardware & software, using best in class components and skills. Click here to learn more about our robust, proven IP67 Metron4 enclosure.

This enclosure design was previously used for our award winning Metron2 telemetry device and there are tens of thousands of them installed all over the world, delivering reliable, secure sensor data in temperatures ranging from - 25 to +65°C!!

Robust and weatherproof, they have been installed under trains, in baking desert heat and …. whilst not designed to be fully submerged … they have survived under water for months at a time!

The new Metron4 may live in the same enclosure, but it has developed enormously on the inside!! This truly innovative Industry 4.0 hardware supports 2G, but also 4G (CatM1 & NB1) so it offers an M2m solution which can be rolled out globally, even in geographic zones where the 2G network has been shut down.

Metron4 hugely expands Powelectrics capacity for edge processing and interfacing with third party kit. In addition to 4 analoge inputs, there are expansion cards for pulse counting (5 channels) and RS232 and options to develop RS465 and CANBUS interfaces. Metron4 even incorporates diagnostic channels to help manage units in the field: signal strength, internal temperature, voltage (on battery powered units), firmware & hardware details and even Cell Tower ID for approximate location.

With solar, battery and external power options, Metron4 is an ideal sensor gateway in a vast range of global environments and applications!

There is more information on Metron4 and a brochure to download here.

Metron telemetry reports sensor data from thousands of sensor types to Powelectrics MetronView data platform, a standalone cloud with customisable dashboards, reporting and alerts. Data & alerts can be sent to unlimited users on any web-enabled device allowing multiple stakeholders to benefit from historical & current data.

Data can be collected by other platforms via API. The API allows integration to software like navision, SAP, SCADA and platforms like IBM Watson, Microsoft Azure, AWS and Miimetiq.

Powelectrics act as a connection between the world of sensors and the Internet of Things. Our 'connected sensor' are employed in many industries including chemical, pharmaceuticals, Adblue, fuels, oils, LPG, lubricants, food and beverage, waste &recycling, landfill & leachate, agriculture, utilities, pumping and environment, rail and security.
