Nurse Tank Telemetry System

Nurse Tank Telemetry System

Our solutions can operate in areas devoid of cellular coverage and we are the only company in the UK to offer solutions of this kind with the option of legal protection under our National Ofcom radio licence. Ofcom licensing not only means that operation is protected in law against jamming and interference, but we are also able to construct systems with a much greater operating power, which means greater distances, improved reliability, the ability to operate through forests, over hills, etc. We are also able to send unlimited numbers of messages and are able to build systems with mixed voice and data. As we write our systems send over half a billion messages per year across the UK alone.

Solutions Include:

  • Service Reservoirs – Level, control and automation
  • Remote Pump Controls – Boreholes, river abstraction, irrigation, sludge and digestate
  • Nurse Tank – Tank to Cab Level Display Systems – Slurry & digestate spreading
  • Security & Theft Alarms – Tractors & Farm Machinery, building units, gates & access control, oil tanks, trespassing, solar farms
  • Borehole Monitors – Level, temperature and tampering
  • Remote Level Gauges – Grain silos with ATEX, water storage tanks, oil tanks, chemical stores
  • Pollution Discharge Alarms – Oil traps / interceptor alarms, milk & chemical spills
  • Automated Spill & Firewater Containment – Valves to close drains and sewers
  • Temperature Monitors – Grain stores, drying sheds/units, greenhouses, hen house
  • Flood Monitors – Roads, buildings, rivers, drains and gullies
  • Blocked Sewer and Drain Alarms – Food production areas, slaughterhouses, storage & warehousing, accommodation, holiday lets
  • Automate Irrigation Flow Valves – Horticulture and hydroponics

No Power No Problem

Over 95% of our solutions deployed to date are battery operated. Many solutions have set industry records for operating from batteries including sensors achieving up to a decade form a single cell.

Where applicable we can also supply solar or wind operated solutions and have a range of custom designed boxes and pole mounts for fixing solar panels safely and securely.
