The Internet of Things is changing the way we do business.
The twentieth century was a time of unprecedented change. From motorised transport to automated manufacture, from international communication by phone to mass education and entertainment through radio and television. The computer went from a business machine that filled a room to a personal aide that filled every home and office.
The 21st Century has seen computers and smart devices completely change the way we meet our personal, social and business needs. The next evolution is the development of Machine2Machine (M2M) and the Internet of Things (IoT), delivering data, improving efficiency, creating audit trails and interacting with every aspect of daily life.
The digital age is changing the way humans interact and think with a bewildering array of needs satisfied at the swipe of a touch screen. We want the convenience of everything available, all the time, wherever we are. This expectation is crossing into industry. Businesses will increasing need to identify and support the next new way of saving their customer time and effort, reducing their costs and adding value to an existing service. Inevitably, there will need to be a fundamental understanding of customer processes and strong partnerships, so that suppliers can develop innovative approaches. M2M communications is intrinsic to this latest evolution of the Strategic Partnership between customer and supplier.
M2M is already all around us. Powelectrics provide flexible, reliable and affordable solutions for a range of applications. Our solutions can be used globally, to measure virtually anything that can be measured with a sensor, by anyone who would like that information displayed at another location. Our solutions have helped customers count how many people enter a showroom after an ad campaign and know that maintenance is needed in a mobile phone tower or that a pump has stopped working in a sewer. Our solutions can be mains, battery or solar powered. They operate over a wide climate range and even ATEX environments.
A great example of a classic win-win is with tank level monitoring. M2M technology allows distributors of bulk liquids and gases, such as fuel and chemicals to plan logistics better, lowering costs by only delivering as necessary. Even better, distributors are simultaneously offering excellent service by removing the need for customers to check their own levels (along with the chance that they won’t) and guaranteeing that they will never run out.
We work with you, ensuring the solution is optimised to meet your requirement. We can offer different finance solutions and we even have novel ways of providing you with confidence in the solution and minimising your risk. We know we can provide you with successful telemetry solutions and we are willing to risk our profits to prove it..!

These high performance Pressure Sensors are suited for measurements in in pipes and containers.However, the high accuracy of our Pressure Sensors capacitive ceramic gauge head makes it an effective fill level monitor as well.
Pressure Sensor Accuracy
Our Pressure Sensors can record fill levels with an accuracy of one centimeter in containers that stand five meters tall. Measurement instruments with a 1000 mbar measurement range have proven to be very useful for these types of applications. When measuring the fill level of water, 10 mbar of pressure corresponds to 10 cm water height. The instrument displays the pressure value digitally.
Fill Level Measurement
The fill level measurement is not effected by foam on the liquid's surface. Suspended matter inside the container will not effect the measurement either - as long as the matter does not disturb the pressure distribution in the area surrounding the sensor membrane. The Pressure Sensor is a compact device that contains all the measurement and evaluation electronics. It is designed for use with 24 V DC. In addition to many programmable features, it also provides two PNP switch outputs and a 4 to 20 mA current output. Additionally we offer a model with 2 switching points and a rapid programming feature which can be used, for example, for minimum and maximum detection in a container. A model with one analog output only is also availble.
Pressure Sensor Functionality
The Pressure Sensors are designed to be screwed into the wall of a pressure container or a pipe. The medium contacts the sensor's ceramic gauge head directly. A pressure mediating fluid is not used. The dry capacitive gauge head provides a high level of overload stability. The medium pressure will cause the measurement membrane to deflect by a maximum of 0.03 mm. At maximum deflection, the membrane lies against the ceramic carrier, thereby enabling an instrument designed for a pressure range of 0 to 16 bar to withstand an overload or pressure spike of up to 64 bar without being damaged. When the overload passes, the membrane returns to its neutral position without exhibiting any hysteresis.
For more detailed information regarding our Pressure Sensors please contact us today.
Pressure Sensor Display
Deflection of the membrane against the ceramic carrier effects a capacity change that the integrated microprocessor-controlled evaluating electronics convert into a pressure-proportional DC signal of 4 to 20 mA. The measurement value is displayed on the four-digit LED display, whereby all values canbe freely scaled to four digits with up to three decimal places. The signal can be processed internally with buffering of up to 30 seconds, thereby making it possible to diminish pressure spikes in pipes.
Three buttons and a four-digit LED display enable the user to calibrate the sensor measurement range and to program the PNP switch outputs, and the buffering. Only a few button combinations are required to rapidly complete configuration. Both integrated PNP switch outputs are freely programmable, allowing the user to adjust the limit value, hysteresis, and functionality type (normally closed or normally open) as needed. A LED signals the switching condition of the PNP switch outputs. The programmed data is stored in an EEPROM, providing security even in the event of power failure.
The sensors DN 752 GPP and DN 752 GA have a three-digit LED display and they allow a fast and easy programming for either two switchpoints or one analog output.
Pressure Sensor Sealing Materials
The Pressure Sensor membrane must be resistant to the medium in which the sensor will be used. A fluoroelastomer (FPM) gasket is standard equipment.
For more information regarding our range of Pressure Sensors please contact us today.
Approval for safety applications
Sensors for personal security must have a qualifification approval according to EN 954-1 and must be labeled accordingly. Sensors that are not labeled must not be used for applications of this kind.
