Tank monitoring software shows how to save money

Posted on 09 Jun 2009

By knowing what is in a customers tank, suppliers of LPG can increase the amount delivered, reduce the number of deliveries required and therefore save transportation costs considerably and reduce CO2 emissions greatly therefore helping the environment. 30% fewer miles can be realistically achieved.  There are further benefits including finding illegal fills, reducing customer run outs and panic deliveries as well as improving customer service which in turn leads to better customer retention.

Affordable and reliable solutions 


The METRON ATEX from Powelectrics makes remote LPG tank level monitoring both affordable and reliable. The design utilises the latest manufacturing techniques and hardware making it a very competitively priced reliable and safe solution. Advanced electronic circuitry provides class leading battery life coupled with low temperature operation and low cost communications. Our battery life is typically 5 years when transmitting the readings once per day. By using GPRS we can offer very low cost data transfer rates.  Installation is quick and easy, with no intrusion to the customer’s property. The multi channel unit can monitor up to 6 tanks which helps keep costs down on commercial installations where multiple tanks are commonplace. It is important that the data is used properly. Powelectrics will work with you to ensure the platform suits your needs. Clean and easy to understand interfaces lead to minimal training requirements so the data can provides benefits pretty much instantly. The data can interface into your ERP solutions, giving you meaningful and useful information where and when you need it.  We can offer both hosted and enterprise software solutions, ranging from ‘flat file data’ to complete hosted routing and planning packages with advanced prediction algorithms. 


Hosted and enterprise software solutions with predictions and alarms 

We are able to predict when tanks will be empty based on recent usage and alert you as required. We measure the temperature with each level reading  - by using this historical data in conjunction with weather forecasts we are able to offer very accurate predictions and further refine your delivery planning. Telemetry from Powelectrics works with your business systems and allows you to focus on benefitting from the data. One important feature is battery performance. The Powelectrics METRON ATEX has a 5 year battery life with 1 transmission every day. The quickest payback is on industrial applications where predicting the consumption is difficult, so daily transmissions make for a much better solution.  The Powelectrics METRON ATEX carries all the relevant approvals. The device has been tested and approved to cover use in potentially explosive environments, and the manufacturing process is also approved and audited. The WEEE regulations relating to batteries was changed in October 2009 – the Powelectrics METRON ATEX is fully compliant.
