How to Remotely Monitor Your Propane (LPG) Level with Your Existing Float Sensor

You probably don't have to drain your tank to start remotely monitoring your propane (LPG) level. Remote monitoring makes it easy to be sure that your building's generator always has enough fuel to withstand a commercial power failure.

Watch the video below to see how a typical float works, how it magnetically engages with a needle gauge, and how an "R3D-ready" gauge can output a level reading to a LAN-enabled RTU at your facility.

The LPG Controller

The NetGuardian LPG Controller gives you maximum control over propane/diesel distribution and vessel management. This small device is ideal for remotely managing up to 5 liquid propane gas or diesel fuel tanks from a single piece of equipment.


Monitor up to 5 liquid propane tanks using the NetGuardian LPG Controller.

The LPG Controller provides accurate and up-to-date readings to help you easily avoid preventable propane outages. It uses advanced analog sensor technology like Rochester gauges. This RTU can also be used for diesel by simply connecting the appropriate tank level sensors.

The LPG Controller features both automatic and manual gas tank cycling. Whenever a tank is nearly empty, the valve is closed. Then, the next tank valve is opened. This function provides a steady supply of fuel and ensures that your revenue-generating network equipment is never compromised.

With a built-in web interface, the NetGuardian LPG allows you to remotely monitor your tank levels anytime, from virtually anywhere in world. You need only a standard internet browser. In addition, the unit's front panel provides four propane threshold levels and valve status (open/close) through visual LED displays.

There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.

"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Send me a quick online message about what you're trying to accomplish. I'll work with you to build a custom PDF application diagram that's a perfect fit for your network.

Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
