Whether you say remote monitoring, connected sensors, telemetry, IIoT , IoT , m2m or Industry4.0, we speak your language!

We can offer advice and supply sensors from over 100 reputable international manufacturers.Please see our sensors pages.

We manufacture our own range of Metron4 M2M telemetry devices and have developed our own versatile MetronView cloud.

Eveything we do keeps the customer's needs firmly in mind. Our hardware is user-friendly, ready to go straight from the box. Our cloud is easily integrated to third party hardware and has an API allowing easy integration to other portals and software.

Our IoT solutions are well-proven, in many industries across the globe. There are many application cases in the news section of this web site. Please click here.

Our Metron4 range of m2m telemetry hardware is robust, afforable, easily installed, straight out of the box. Not only do these IIoT units support 2G, but also 4G (CatM1 & NB1). This means it can be deployed globally, even in geographical areas where the 2G network has been switched off, such as the US and Australia.

Metron4 offers enormous flexibility to add functionality for specific, customer-driven applications. In addition to 4 analogue inputs, there are expansion cards for pulse counting (5 channels) and RS232 and options to develop RS485 and CANBUS interfaces.  Data and alerts are sent wirelessly at user-defined intervals to unlimited authorised users, wherever they have web access... to smart devices, laptops, desktops.

With solar, battery and external power options, compact IP67 enclosure and operational temperatures - 25 to +65°C, Metron4 is extremely versatile. For more information on our robust and reliable Metron4 range of telemetry devices click here.

MetronView is our standalone cloud, with customisable dashboards, reporting & alarms. It is a highly secure and scalable IoT solution, processing millions of readings daily and offers an API, so data can be collected by other data platforms.

MetronView can be integrated with other communication technogies eg NBIoT and LPWAN communication technologies, including Sigfox and LoRa. More here.

For bulk collection and distribution applications, Powelectrics offer a bespoke portal, MetronTMS (Tank Monitoring System). Thresholds can be configured for individual tanks to alert customers when tanks are reaching amber and red alert low levels and even predict when individual tanks will need filling, based on recent usage. Theft and leakage alerts can also be set up. Tanks can be plotted on a map, by colour code and postcode to enable efficient logistics planning. More here.

Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN)

A low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) is a type of wireless telecommunication network designed to allow long range communications at a low bit rate among connected objects, such as sensors operated on a battery. As the name suggests, they have low power draw and provide coverage to wide areas.

The most widely deployed proprietary LPWAN technology is Sigfox. There are now networks in around 60 countries. The UK benefits from 2000 base stations, covering 95% of the nation’s population. Powelectrics are Sigfox partners and offer a range of Sigfox devices that are battery powered, weatherproof and incredibly easy to deploy. This Sigfox technology is fully integrated to our MetronView cloud. Typical applications include remote electricity, water and gas meter reading for billing and waste/leakage detection. Sigfox is also used for temperature and humidity monitoring and a broad range of pulse counting and contact counting applications, including people counting and trespass alerts.

Powelectrics are also currently developing LoRa capabilities within our proprietary Metron IIoT technology for release later in 2020. A big difference between Sigfox and LoRa is that for LoRA you need to build your own network or have an existing LoRa network in your locality that allows you to subscribe. The Sigfox network is provided. LoRa is being discussed in relation to SMART cities, where councils or water companies, for example, want to monitor many devices. For them, it is a great investment to install some base stations and avoid ongoing license fees.

Tank Inventory System, Remote Inventory Management, Vendor Managed Inventory or VMI

Remote Inventory Management/ Vendor Managed Inventory/ VMI  is the use of remote level sensing technology to measure and report the level of any type of substance, to significantly reduce the cost of bulk distribution (diesel, petrol, home heating oil, kerosene, biofuels, lubricants, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, animal feed, construction additives, AdBlue) and collection (waste, recycling). 

By knowing when a tank needs attention, efficient logistics can be planned and costs reduced. Moreover, service and supply contracts can be won and retained by offering enhanced service levels to end-users and removing the responsibility for them to check their own levels and arrange deliveries/collections. Personal, process and environmental safety is also protected by avoiding run-outs and overspills.

Powelectrics technology can accomodate any shape or size of tank and contents may be liquid, gas, powder and even granules.

Metron4 telemetry devices are afforable, easily installed and can report data from up to four tanks. Data and alerts are sent wirelessly at user-defined intervals to unlimited authorised users, wherever they have web access... to smart devices, laptops, desktops.

Radio Telemetry

Powelectrics offer 30 years of experience in sensing and instrumentation. We have been at the cutting edge of wireless remote monitoring from the early days of radio telemetry and retain that expertise handling smaller private projects and large industrial IoT remote control schemes for major utilities companies.

Radio telemetry is well-established and it has historically been preferred by certain sectors, such as the UK water industry as there are no ongoing data costs and no reliance on an external infrastructure. Whilst there are many other technologies available, it can be the most reliable and practical alternative for specific applications.

Today, we empower the Industrial Internet of Things by connecting sensors to the cloud. Our technology, combined with the highest quality third party instrumentation and software, is deployed across many industries and is truly global. Our solutions encompass GSM/GPRS 2G and 4G as well as a range of NBIoT and LPWAN communication technologies, including Sigfox and LoRa.
