May 16, 2013 – Automation Products Group’s (APG’s) Tank Cloud remote monitoring enables users to monitor facilities and processes 24/7 from anywhere with an internet connection (photos below). Using APG’s proprietary remote level sensors and modules—or any sensor with a 4-20mA output—Tank Cloud users can remotely monitor level, pressure, temperature, flow, pH and other process variables through a simple online interface. Sensors and input modules connect to the user’s network via an ethernet cable and transmit data via the user’s internet connection, be it landline, cellular, radio or satellite. On APG’s web portal, operators and managers have access to real-time and historical data, and can manage various alarms and set permission levels for various personnel. The system notifies all relevant workers of any alarms via email and text messaging. APG has also introduced three new Tank Cloud-compatible sensing and display products: MPX Series Magnetostrictive Level Sensor; MNU Series Ultrasonic Sensor; and MND Modbus Network Display.
