Metering Applications

Cellexmatics system works with all kinds of meters, including water meters, electric meters and gas meters. This is accomplished by customizing the Cellexmatics interface for a specific meter. To demonstrate, Cellexmatics has developed an end-to-end system for measurement and collection of data from Propane gas tanks. For the first time in the Propane industry, Cellexmatics has enabled any Propane distributor to remotely monitor customer’s tank levels without the necessity to hook up to a phone line -- regardless of tank location, model or size.
 
Propane tank monitoring system is an excellent example of a complete package that can be developed using Cellexmatics patented technology. Our solution establishes an on-demand or pre-programmed Cellular communication between any propane or fuel oil tank and the dealer or supplier. The hardware is designed to fit any tank and uses any available wireless network to communicate with a gateway. The concept is to enable the dealer or the supplier to get realtime data from the tank at any time, from any location. The Cellular monitoring method eliminates the need to use wired phone lines. Any tank in any location can use the Cellexmatics system. It requires No connection to the clients phone line or facility. The unit uses its own battery power, typically lasting about 3 year without recharge.
