What is telemetry?

Telemetry is a communication method in which information is collected from remote or inaccessible locations and sent to a central point for monitoring and analysis. This is usually done wirelessly via radio or satellite communications.

Telemetry uses sensors to collect data such as temperature, pressure and humidity. This data is then converted into electrical signals and sent to a receiver. The receiver decodes the signals and converts them into useful information.

Telemetry is widely used in various industries, such as:
  • Environmental monitoring: to collect data on air quality, water quality and soil conditions
  • Energy and utility companies: to monitor data on energy consumption and networks
  • Transportation and logistics: to track the location and status of vehicles and loads
  • Healthcare: to remotely monitor and track patient data

Telemetry in the propane gas industry

Telemetry plays an important role in the propane gas industry, especially for suppliers such as OK GAS. By applying telemetry, we can accurately monitor the gas level in storage tanks so that we can determine in a timely manner when a tank needs to be refilled. This ensures a more efficient supply and avoids unnecessary interruptions in the gas supply.

Telemetry is widely used in various industries, such as:
  • Reduced chance of empty tanks, thanks to real-time monitoring
