Reverse polarity protection

The reverse polarity protection prevents destruction of the sensor by a reversal of the polarity of the voltage supply.

Repeating accuracy (R)

This relates to capacitive sensors. The repeating accuracy describes the maintenance of the switching point after the repeated immersing in the liquid under specified circumstances. Our sensors have typical tolerances of less than 3 % of the effective operating point.

Remote Level Sensor

What is Meant by Remote Level Sensor?

A remote level sensor is used to measure and report level in the remote level monitoring of any type of substance, with data and possibly high or low level alerts accessible from a remote location.

Powelectrics offer over 25 years of experience in sensing and instrumentation, empowering the Industrial Internet of Things by connecting sensors to the cloud.

Many applications involve remote level monitoring of tanks, silos, rivers, reservoirs, sewers for bulk collection and deliver, flood protection, security, safety and the environment.

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

The use of remote level monitoring helps to significantly reduce bulk distribution (fuel, oil, AdBlue) and collection (waste, recycling) costs.  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.

Telemetry devices are quicky and easily installed. Data and alerts are sent wirelessly at user-defined intervals to unlimited authorised users, wherever they have web access..to smart devices, laptops, desktops.

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. More here.

For bulk collecion and distribution applications, Powelectrics offer a bespoke portal, MetronTMS. 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. Tanks can be plotted on a map, by colour code and postcode to enable efficient logistics planning. More here.

Reaction time

Reaction time is a function of both switch on time and switch off time. For a flow sensor, the switch-on time elapses from the beginning of the flow until the switching point set at the amplifier is reached. Switch-off time characteristic results for the flow sensors at pump shut-down. If the set switching point is close to maximum flow, the time elapsing between the pump shut-down and the indication of the flow decrease is short. If the switching point is close to the static value, the off-transition time will be long.

Radio Telemetry

What is Radio Telemetry?

Radio telemetry is the communication of Analogue (4-20mA, 0-10V), Digital (on/off), Pulse count (for example from a flow meter) or Serial Data (RS232/485) without the use of wires. Radio telemetry systems are generally used when it is too far for cable to be cost effective, when a telephone line is too expensive – for installation and/or line rental, when there are no available cores left in current cable system or there are certain time constraints. There are different frequencies available across the globe for radio telemetry systems and even within the UK there are a number of bands available for use over different ranges (how far the signal will be sent) and band widths. For example there is a delicensed radio telemetry band at 458MHz in the United Kingdom. With this you can transmit 500mW ERO and therefore communicate over approximately 20km. Line of sight is not essential but obstacles reduce the range You can have different types of radio telemetry network, such as Point to Point, One to Many, Many to One, Network – where data goes between any number of sites. You can also use repeaters – when communications not directly possible, because of an obstruction (such as a hill) or distance too great.
