Overview

Wireless Satellite Based Remote Tank Level Monitoring

In Resource Industries such as Oil and Gas, & Mining there is a requirement to remotely monitor tank levels to schedule refills and transport; and to insure process safety.

Wireless satellite technology offered by SatSCADA offers the ability to remotely monitor tank levels in areas not covered by terrestrial means such as cellular, landlines, internet, or WAN networks.

Single Tank

Multiple Tanks

Satellite Based Tank Level Monitoring

Reporting on SCHEDULE, ALARM or DEMAND

SatSCADA Remote Tank Systems can be configured to report on a SCHEDULE (1,2,4,8,12,24, or 48 times a day), on ALARM, or on DEMAND. This flexibility allows the customer to configure SatSCADA to provide the most cost effective operation.

Standalone or Integration into SCADA, Inventory Systems

SatSCADA  provides a real time tank monitoring solution that can deployed as a standalone system or integrated into the client’s existing SCADA and inventory management systems.

Rapid Deployment

SatSCADA wireless satellite technology coupled with wireless sensor technology enable rapid cost effective deployments.

Wide Range of Level Sensors Supported

SatSCADA Tank Level Monitoring supports all types of  tank level sensors and switches. This enables SatSCADA to be used to monitor a wide range of products and tank configurations.  Users can select the most suitable instrument for their tank monitoring application. The customer’s standard or existing sensors can be utilized.  This open architecture system ensures greatest flexibility.

SatSCADA Tank Level Monitoring Support of industry standard interfaces including analog (4-20 ma, 1-5VDC), digital (switches), and serial (RS232 and RS485 modbus). Sensors can be directly wired into the SatSCADA RTU (hardwired) or wirelessly via Wireless Sensor Nodes/Gateway.

Wireless Sensors & Instruments

Satellite Based Tank Level Monitoring

Modbus-Sensor NodeWireless Battery Powered Sensor Nodes can be used to connect tank level sensors where wiring can be costly and difficult.  This feature can be important in applications where portable tanks are utilized. Wireless sensors nodes eliminate field wiring that can be easily damaged.  SatSCADA Wireless Sensor Nodes support industry standard interfaces including analog (4-20 ma, 1-5VDC), digital (switches), and serial (RS232 and RS485 Modbus).  Low power Wireless Sensor nodes are battery powered with up to 2 years operation without battery replacement. For instruments that have longer warm-up times or for applications with higher update frequencies, wireless sensor nodes can be equipped with its integral solar power system.

SatSCADA Server Support

Secure Access

SatSCADA Remote Tank Monitoring is a cloud hosted monitoring systems that provides secure user access to their tank information. SatSCADA also provides easy interface to user applications via schedule CSV exports and Modbus Interfaces.

Alarm Notification Via Email, SMS, & Voice

Operators are notified of out of range Tank conditions via email and SMS.

SAT100 Alarm Notification Via Email&SMS

Scheduled FTP and Email Reporting

Tank level status reports in CSV format can be sent to users by scheduled FTP transfer or email.

Web Access

Users can access tank level status of their remote sites via the SatSCADA web GUI that enables desktop, laptop, and smartphone access. The system provides site status, historical trending, and GPS mapping of their tank sites.
