Telemetry - High Level Alarm & Monitoring Device
This wireless, waste tank level monitoring system is available as a low-cost option / upgrade and can be retro-fitted to our Tuff Tanks, indeed, retro-fitted to almost any plastic or metal tank between 0.5m and 3m in height.
This is a superb, cost-effective way of monitoring the level of waste in the tank without having to repeatedly visit the tank, open its inspection hatch(es) and physically check: let's face it, looking at the contents of a waste tank is not top of everyone's priority list. Let the technology do the dirty work for you! Using ultrasonic waves to measure liquid height in the tank and wireless technology to show you the waste level, this is a low-cost option, which can be retro-fitted to almost any plastic or metal tank up to 3m in height. Watch our video for further details.

When the equipment (transmitter and receiver) are paired, the transmitter generates a unique RF (radio-frequency) code tying it to the monitor / receiver (which stores in internally and indefinitely). Upon powering up the monitor will associate with the appropriate RF code. This means that equipment can be prepared before shipment to site, particularly relevant for the hire industry.
A visual scale is displayed on the receiver unit and warning tones sound (from the receiver unit) when the tank is close to full: typically at the 90% level. This will be the time to make the call to your waste removal, service provider.
In the event of power failure, when the power is restored the two units will find each other but it may take 1-2 hours for correct levels to be recorded. Therefore, it is recommended that the monitor is left on where possible.
Should equipment become mixed up (e.g. if hire equipment is moved from site to site many times during its lifetime) then it is suggested that transmitter and monitor are paired again to make doubly sure that the local equipment is matched.
You can avoid the situation where the first time you're aware your tank is full is when it is already overflowing and running down the car park! Those emergency call-outs tend to be most expensive AND you may be faced with an environmental clean-up bill.
WARNING: As with all wireless devices, actual performance may be affected by thick walls / heavy machinery / Faraday cage scenarios between transmitter and receiver.
