Automation Products Group has introduced Tank Cloud Remote Monitoring – a remote tank level monitoring system that enables users to monitor facilities and processes from anywhere with an Internet connection, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Using APG’s proprietary remote level sensors and modules, or any sensor with a 4-20mA output, Tank Cloud users can remotely monitor level, pressure, temperature, flow, pH and other process variables through an online interface. Tank Cloud sensors and input modules connect to the user’s network via an Ethernet cable and transmit data via the user’s Internet connection, whether landline, cellular, radio or satellite. On APG’s Tank Cloud remote monitoring web portal, operators and managers have ready access to real-time and historical data, and can manage various alarms and set permission levels for various personnel. The system notifies all relevant workers of any alarms via email and text messaging.
