Wireless monitoring of remote tanks
20 October 2015
Digi International has introduced its newest version of Digi Connect Tank, an integrated, cellular-enabled remote tank-level monitoring device that is designed to help manage remote tank assets efficiently through the use of tank level and location data.
Featuring integration with the Digi Device Cloud, Connect Tank allows companies that own or manage large numbers of tanks to optimise operations by routing fleet and personnel efficiently, resulting in reduced transportation and fuel costs and increased supply chain predictability.
Connect Tank is said to be the only option that allows companies to monitor tank levels from within their own enterprise without the need to purchase third-party monitoring applications. It can be integrated into existing Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) applications.
Features of the new version include small form factor making it suitable for use in a wide range of tank applications; local configuration and debug interface for configuring cellular interface and viewing device status; an optional integrated GPS receiver with automated position reporting; integrated, non-contact ultrasonic liquid level sensor; UL Class 1/Division 2 rating sensors for hazardous environments; a durable NEMA 4 enclosure that extends sensor life and application environments; self-powered and sleep-enabled sensors that deliver extended battery life (two-to-three years with normal usage), and; expanded APIs for integration with enterprise applications.
By using cellular technologies, Digi Connect Tank can be installed in locations where wired network infrastructure may not available. It allows installations to be able to constantly ascertain tank levels for delivery or evacuation of materials as well as be alerted to potential leaks or security concerns.
Digi Connect Tank integrates data streams into the cloud, enabling users to quickly connect and manage their remote assets.
