Day Tank Level Monitoring

For tank locations not wired for power or data transfer, a wireless sensor network can gather the tank data and transmit it to a central control location for analysis and logging.

Day tank fill levels are monitored continuously so that materials are maintained at a specific quantity. Because these tanks are slowly filled or depleted, ultrasonic sensors can be used to measure the tank levels without false readings or tank wall interference.

Description

With a SureCross Wireless Network, FlexPower Nodes are deployed at each tank without the need to run cables for power or I/O data transmission. Banner’s unique power management capability enables a Node equipped with a T30UF ultrasonic analog level sensor to operate for years on a single DX81 battery power supply.

Remotely located tank sensor readings can be forwarded to a host system for data tracking, sending e-mail alerts, or to trigger specific events, such as
refilling the tank.
