ATEK Access Technologies launched its new TankScan TSM1000 Micro-Impulse Radar (MIR) 4G LTE monitoring system, which provides remote level monitoring of deployed tanks, totes and containers up to 40 feet tall. The TankScan TSM1000 monitor is fully integrated with 4G LTE cellular connectivity and industry-leading Micro-Impulse Radar (MIR) technology, making it an ideal choice at in locations where power and network connectivity infrastructure are not available.
“We were starting to see more and more 20-foot remote single tanks in the field that we couldn’t service with our existing TSM8000 and TSU1000 series, so we wanted to develop a solution that can provide an accurate measure of a tank’s volume over 20 feet tall that our TSU series couldn’t measure,” said Brad Briggs, Director of Product Development, ATEK Access Technologies. “With the TSM1000’s battery powered 4G LTE cellular technology, you can service these tanks in the field utilizing wireless level monitoring and receive customizable alerts. This helps our customers reduce trucking-related costs, enhance inventory management, improve customer service and optimize their profitability.”
Briggs added, “Planning fluid deliveries and pickups can be cumbersome but when given the latest level information at your fingertips, we can help our customers ensure optimal route efficiencies and maximum customer service.”
With the ATEK Intelligence Platform (AIP), customers can remotely monitor one to 100,000 tanks because AIP provides tank level information anywhere an internet connection is available – via computer, tablet or smartphone. The user-friendly dashboard displays accurate measurements across all monitored tanks, enabling users to utilize the intelligence to optimize business decisions around operations and logistics by knowing when a tank needs to be serviced.
The TSM1000 monitor features an improved probe wire length accuracy of +/- 0.3% and has a durable weather-proof enclosure with a long battery life making this solution ideal for use in a broad range of above ground tank applications.
