Dunraven Announces New Broadband And GPRS Options
20th October 2012
Dunraven Systems Limited, suppliers of storage tank telemetry solutions, has announced all-new GPRS and Broadband versions of its industry leading RMS remote tank monitoring system. The announcement was made on the first day of the Oil & Renewable Energy Show in Manchester.
Apollo RMS allows distributors to remotely monitor customers' tanks and can assist in reducing variable delivery costs, whilst simultaneously enhancing margins and customer loyalty. The RMS system builds upon the success of Apollo fuel tank monitors, which provide dependable and reliable monitoring at millions of heating oil and diesel storage installations worldwide.
"The introduction of GPRS and Broadband communication technologies, offers greater flexibility to fuel distributors with a requirement to both minimise distribution overheads, and increase profitability." explains Dunraven's Managing Director, Gerry Jones.
"Apollo RMS is an established, remote tank monitoring system, which already offers distributors a choice of GSM and analogue technologies. The analogue option, ensures RMS is the optimum choice for the great number of oil heating and fuel storage installations in rural areas, which beyond the reach of the mobile phone network."
Dunraven's new Broadband option cleverly and conveniently plugs into existing consumer broadband hubs, found in around 40% of UK homes.
"The broadband unit can be quickly attached to the fixed line broadband modems found in many homes and offices today across Britain and Ireland. The unit receives transmissions from the tank mounted Apollo monitor and sends these via the web, directly to the distributor's RMS system. The device can be fitted in seconds and offers transmission speeds of up to 80Mb, often at zero incremental cost to the fuel user or distributor."
Complementing the new broadband product is an all-new GPRS option, which operates on a very similar principle to the current Apollo GSM product. A tanktop sensor monitors the level of fuel inside the tank and relays this information to the GPRS modem positioned inside the customers' premises. The modem then relays this data periodically to the customer's preferred fuel distributor.
"GPRS offers distributors higher data transfer speeds, reduced transmission costs and lowers energy consumption, compared to some competitor technologies. It complements our existing analogue, GSM and new broadband products.", says Gerry.
Both the new Broadband and GPRS units are now available from Dunraven Systems Limited and are suitable for use with all existing RMS systems. For further information visit www.dunravensystems.com or catch up with Dunraven on Twitter or Facebook.
