MetronView IoT Cloud

Powelectrics are delighted to announce the launch of our ‘new, improved’ MetronView for 2021!
MetronView  is a web based data collection platform, designed and maintained by Powelectrics, for use with Metron4 and other telemetry devices. It is standalone cloud with customisable dashboards, reporting and alerts.Customers can even badge it to appear as their own.

For the last decade, MetronView has provided customers with a reliable, secure IIoT platform to receive remote sensor data and provide both data & alerts to unlimited users on any web-enabled device.

MetonView Brochure 2021Whilst new features were continuously incorporated in response to customer feedback, our new MetronView not only has a fresh look, but the way the web GUI/interface interacts with the data platform has been completely modernised, supporting the new functions and ready for future evolutions in response to new customer needs.
It is packed with intuitive new functionality and offering exceptional security, flexibility and aesthetics. To see an overview click here.

Existing users will experience easier navigation, faster operation, clearer charting and improved aesthetics, especially on smaller screens. It will also be easier to manage multiple devices and to interact with third party devices and data sources.
Powelectrics supported the launch with a series of webinars. If you have missed these at the time of reading, please get in touch and we can set up a demo for you. New features will be standard and existing users do not need to do anything to access them. Simply log on after the launch and they will all be there.

These exciting new features include:

  • “CHART ANGEL” . A fantastic feature, which will allow data from several IOT devices to be placed together on one graph for easy identification of operational issues. Customers can now compare the performance of similar assets to identify anomalies.
  • CONFIGURATION WIZARD. Remotely configure devices using a simple, intuitive wizard to define units of measure, sensor types and more and save configurations for future use. No need for training or programming skills.
  • CONFIGURATION LIBRARY. To make life easy, customers can keep a library of regularly used configurations and simply select one for simple configuration … making it incredibly easy to manage devices in the field, whenever you like. Eg) Pre-set configurations for specific tank dimensions. No need for coding skills or technical support.
  • HOVER FUNCTION. Hover anywhere over your graph for exact readings of all channels at a specific point in time.
All previous functionality of MetronView has been retained. As before, data & alerts can be sent to unlimited users on any web-enabled device allowing multiple stakeholders to benefit from historical & current data. Users can be set up within a hierachy, so it is possible for an individual to see the data and receive alerts for one sensor, a department, a site or all the sites within a company. For example a bulk delivery company could see all their customers tanks, whilst granting each customer visibility of tank levels on just their site(s).
Primarily used as a standalone cloud, its also offers a common API to integrate sensor data to other clouds. The API allows integration to software like Navision, SAP, SCADA and platforms like IBM Watson, Microsoft Azure, AWS and Miimetiq. It also allows Powelectrics and their customers to develop application specific portals.
For example, we offer bespoke software for bulk delivery and collection applications. Our MetronTMS (Tank Monitoring System) software includs theft and leakage alerts and the facility to set thresholds on individual tanks to alert you when tanks are reaching amber and red alert levels and even predict when individual tanks will need filling, based on recent usage. These colour coded sites can be plotted on a map, by postcode, for simple logistics planning. Data may be used to verify delivery dates and quantities for invoice reconciliation.
Examples of other portals we have already created include energy metering, vending machines, train condition monitoring and waste compactors.
