What is the difference between a gauge reader and ultrasonic monitor?

A gauge reader plugs into a Rochester Jr./Sr. Remote Ready dial face and reports the fill level to our satellite network. An ultrasonic monitor sends a sound wave through the wall of the tank and reads the return echo from the surface of the liquid propane. These readings are accurate within ± 2%, with no reliance on any existing mechanical gauges.

Does satellite monitoring have advantages over cellular monitoring?

Satellite provides complete coverage for any tank in the world. This lets you get readings you can depend on for tanks in remote areas with spotty cell service.

Why should I care about ultrasonic measurements?

Ultrasonic systems measure fill levels at an accuracy within +/- 2%. This accuracy is extremely important for maximizing the efficiency of distribution fleets, and can help you save money and hours of time by reducing trips taken to refill tanks.

Will these monitors hold up in harsh weather?

Absolutely. Our monitors work in operating temperatures from -40°F to 140°F (60°C  to -40°C)

Will these systems alert me when I am running low?

Yes. Customize your fill level alarms to receive automatic email updates in addition to your scheduled readings.

Can I use this with my current route planning software?

Yes. We offer an API for software integration available upon request. Contact to learn more.
