Technology Assurance Labs, which last year received a 2014 M2M Evolution Business Impact Awards at the M2M Evolution Conference & Expo , announced today that it added a new remote tank monitoring radio aimed specifically at the underground tank market. The new tank monitor is designed to fit under the dome of underground tanks with a flush mounted external antenna on top of the dome.

Ken Stauffer, Co-Founder of Technology Assurance Labs, explains “this is the first remote monitoring device in the propane industry designed for underground residential storage tanks. It regularly transmits tank level data to a dealer’s OWL© software portal that can be accessed via any device (laptop, smartphone, or tablet) with a web browser or via an application interface for back office systems. It also provides a monthly usage invoice (e.g. virtual metering) so dealers can offer a “pay as you go service”. The radio sensor is economical enough to be worthwhile for residential propane tanks and pays for itself in a couple of saved truck rolls”.

Phil Marks III, Manager of Nantucket Energy said, “I’ve been looking for a product like this for 5 years. I went with OWL© because they are the first underground “pit” radio made for the propane industry. With this product they have opened up a whole new market for underground tanks which has been a problem area for remote tank monitoring.”
