If you have multiple remote sites with propane (or diesel) tanks, you need to be managing them intelligently. It doesn't matter if you're a telco, a power utility, a railway, or any other kind of organization. If you fail to monitor your propane tank levels, it's just a matter of time before you run out of fuel and a site goes dark.
Don't think that you can get away with buying consumer-grade devices, either. It may seem cheaper in the short term, but you'll pay for it soon enough. Devices built for monitoring a single residential propane tank don't have the durability for your industrial application. Also, they won't integrate into a single, cohesive monitoring system. Devices at different sites can and will get out of sync if you choose standalone equipment.
You need a propane monitoring system with industrial-grade remotes and sensors, plus a central aggregation master. The remotes and the master should have all the capacity you need to monitor propane and other important things (equipment status, temperature, door alarms, etc.) without going overboard on specs or price. Imagine the satisfaction of knowing - not simply hoping - that you have plenty of propane available during a network emergency.
Fortunately, this combination of wireless propane sensors, NetGuardian RTUs, and a T/Mon master station performs that function exactly. You'll simply connect a wireless sensor to each of your propane tanks, place a NetGuardian RTU in each hut/cabinet/site, and install a central T/Mon master station to aggregate all of the data at your central office.
Depending on the NetGuardian model you choose, you can have more or fewer excess inputs to monitor other important values (equipment status, temperature, door alarms, etc.). You always get more value by using the same equipment to perform multiple functions, so it's best to tie as many things into your NetGuardians as possible.
Don't wait until after an incident to deploy a reliable fuel tank monitoring system.
