Fuel Management

Vectec worked with PowTechnology’s IIoT kit for ten years, involving hundreds of regular tank level installations, prior to launching our fuel theft detection system. They have offered us great technical support and the kit is consistently robust and reliable. The API on MetronView cloud has allowed us to draw data into our own application-specific platforms. The beauty of the Metron4 is its flexibility and we aim to develop it for other purposes in the future.

The Task

Vectec Limited designs, installs and maintains refuelling facilities for commercial and public sector organisations. Having used PowTechnology’s tank level monitoring for years, they needed an lloT solution for customers who store diesel at unmanned sites, to protect them from theft.

The Solution

The solution monitors fuel level rate of change over a set period. It incorporates a beacon and klaxon as a local deterrent. Parameters are user-defined. Alarms are sent to staff, so they can attend site to minimise losses and the risk of spillage. Devices have uninterruptible power supplies and cutting the probe cable triggers the alarm.

The Result

This PowTechnology lloT solution offers a simple retrofit. Vectec customers now have a local deterrent and 24/7 alarming, based on their own usage patterns, to help avoid the costs and environmental risks of theft and tank damage.
