MetronR - Radio Networks for Sensors and Meters

MetronR is our simple, low-maintenance range of radio relemetry devices, typically used for remote meter reading and environmental monitoring. The remote meter reading generally covers gas, water and electricity in factories, retail parks and apartments as well as leisure environments like caravan parks. ATEX versions are available for gas metering applications. For environmental monitoring the radio transmitters are available with a range of integral sensors including CO2 sensors, temperature sensors and humidity sensors, or for use with external sensors, using the 4-20mA and 0-10 volts input versions.
 
Radio transmitters take readings from your meters and send them to a hub which has an RS232/RS485 interface so you can interface your data direclty to BMS, SCADA, PLC's and more. Alternatively Powelectrics offer GSM telemetry solutions which can transmit the meter readings and sensor data over the GSM (mobile phone) network and make it available securely via the internet. This is an extremely cost effective way to monitor multiple data sources, using only one sim card. MetronR is easy to install using simple instructions. No programming experience is needed. It offers an exceptional range and a possible battery life of 10 years. MetronR can be used wth pulse inputs, integral sensors or external sensors.
Near real time and historical data regarding the consumption of electricity, gas and water allows for accurate billing mechanisms and trend analysis to help manage energy consumption and identify unauthorised use of resources, leakage and waste. For example, in a caravan park, guests can be charged fairly for the resources they actually use, rather than the traditional fixed charge. Guests understand that they will be liable for their personal usage of water, gas and electricity, which should ensure that they only use the resources that they need. This benefits the park management, the guest and the environment.

MetronVIEW

MetronView  enables you to view data from your sensors on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Receive alarms, interface data into your software applications and remotely configure certain devices. MetronVIEW  is a web based data collection platform, designed and maintained by Powelectrics, for use with Metron2, MetronATEX, MetronR and other telemetry devices. As part of the industrial internet of things, MetronVIEW allows you to see current and historic data from thousands of different types of sensors, securely via a web browser. Data can be viewed as tables and graphs and MetronVIEW can also alert you when a defined threshold has been crossed or a state has changed or if a device has not reported in. There is no limit on the number of users and no limit to how much historical data can be stored. Powelectrics can establish multiple levels of data access within a MetronVIEW user's organisation, meaning that individuals or your own customers will only access the data that they are authorised to view.
 
MetronVIEW has been designed and is constantly evolving to maximise flexibility and ease of use. It can be used instantly, with no adaptation or it can be customised for your needs, creating bespoke reports and data exports and adding your corporate colours and logos. Using an API, MetronVIEW can interface with existing management & control systems, such as Navision, SAP, SCADA systems and more. Customers may purchase a licence to install MetronVIEW on their own servers.

Automatic Meter Reading

Powelectrics offer simple, low-maintenance, cost-effective connected sensor solutions for fair, accurate meter reading and billing and to identify and reduce wastage. In addition to our award winning GSM telemetry, Powelectrics now offer radio telemetry for metering gas, water and electricity in shared spaces such as factories, retail parks and apartments and in leisure environments, such as caravan parks. Radio transmitters take readings from your meters and send them to a hub, which  forwards them over the GSM (mobile phone) network and makes the data available securely via the internet.

Near real time and historical data regarding the consumption of electricity, gas and water allows for accurate billing mechanisms and trend analysis to help manage energy consumption and identify unauthorised use of resources, leakage and waste. For example, in a caravan park, guests can be charged fairly for the resources they actually use, rather than the traditional fixed charge.
