Monnit Corporation today announced the release of the ALTA® Propane Tank Monitor which allows users to check propane levels from anywhere.
With the ability to integrate with both Sr and Jr R3D® Remote Ready gauges, the monitor offers a plug-and-play remote monitoring solution.
“Several of our propane industry customers asked for the capability to check tank levels before arriving on-site,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO.
“This remote monitor will save energy companies massive amounts of time and fuel by eliminating unnecessary physical checks. More importantly for propane customers, the monitor’s alerts ensure that they will never run dry.”
What IoT brings to the propane industry
The ALTA Propane Tank Monitor enables propane supply companies a needs-based delivery option instead of schedule-based delivery, eliminating unnecessary:
- Time spent physically checking tanks with sufficient propane levels
- Fuel used to reach remote tanks which don’t need servicing
- Wear and tear on service vehicles
Preventing tanks from running dry also means the propane companies don’t need to spend extra time reinitializing a customer’s propane system and saves customers from having to pay hundreds for reinitialization.
