Propane Telemetry

The Wise Telemetry propane system allows gas distributors to see real time supply and demand data at each of their customer’s sites.  This data improves delivery route planning, usage tracking, and future demand prediction.

The patent-pending system operates by detecting the pressure in a propane cylinder.  Once the liquid in the cylinder has been used and only gaseous propane remains, the pressure in the cylinder will begin to drop as the gaseous propane is consumed.  The Wise Telemetry propane system detects this drop and sends an alert via Wise Telemetry’s web-based monitoring software, allowing for timely deliveries.  When installed on a fleet of propane cylinders, the data from our telemetry units can be fed into industrial routing software to ensure optimal delivery routes and no emergency deliveries.  The system can also be paired with switching regulators to allow more flexibility in delivery scheduling.  Versions for bulk propane tanks are also available.

FAQ

Will this system attach to my current regulators and cylinders?

Yes.  The Wise Telemetry system is compatible with most existing regulators and cylinders.  The default attachment for the system is  a ¼”- NPT T-fitting with the pressure sensor screwed into one end.  The two other ends of the T-fitting are screwed inline between the propane cylinder and the propane regulator.

Do I need a Wise Telemetry device for every cylinder in my fleet?

No.  You only need one Wise Telemetry device per regulator at an end user’s site.

Does this system require multiple pieces of hardware?

No.  The propane telemetry system is only one piece of hardware that both senses the pressure level and communicates these readings from the cylinder to our cloud computing system.

How does the device communicate data?

Our devices can communicate via Wi-Fi or cellular connections.

How do I access my data?

Data from Wise Telemetry devices can be accessed online via our secure web portal.  Alternatively, the Wise Telemetry system can interact with APIs of asset management and purchasing systems.
