Use Case of the Automatic Tank Gauging (ATG) Solution
Monitoring the level of fuel, water, in general any liquid in a tank can achieve many savings in many economic sectors. Optimise fuel consumption. Prevent the risk of running out of water or fuel, which could lead to a shutdown. The notification that a sewage collection tank, or motor oil, can plan an efficient emptying. Tracking real-time fuel consumption in a cuver also helps fight theft.
Fuel Management on a Construction Site
Fuel management on an industrial site
Management of a drinking water tank
Management of liquid tanks to recycle
In general, there are many situations where tanks are installed to provide industrial processes. Or to recover used fluids. The filling, or the emptying, of these can be greatly facilitated by a monitoring of their filling level …
The Tank Level Monitoring Solution, or Automatic Tank Gauging (ATG)
The solution consists of software and sensors connected through the LORAWAN data communication network.
ATG software: Smart Tank Level Monitoring
The sensors for monitoring the level of a tank
Ultrasonic Level Sensor
The level measuring sensor, for fuel tanks, water or any other liquid tank, based on an ultrasonic measurement, running on battery up to 14 years.
- LORAWAN. EU868 MHz
- Battery: > 10 years autonomy
- Measure: > 12 cm – < 400 cm
- Accuracy: 2cm
- IP67 – outdoor

The Tank Level Monitoring solution is based on the IOT Factory software platform. This IOT software allows, in parallel, to connect other sensors to remotely manage machines, installations and personnel deployed in the field: equipment tracking, measurement of energy consumption, staff monitoring, sensors for the building.
More about Smart Construction
The construction sector (construction) deploys and uses a lot of equipment and personnel on site. Applied to construction sites, the Internet of Things offers innovative and affordable solutions for the monitoring and management of small equipment, monitoring oil tanks on site, monitoring water consumption, securing facilities (presence detection or intrusion, attempted theft), geolocation (indoor and outdoor) of equipment and personnel.
