Tank level monitoring uses connected technology to monitor the liquid or solid volumes in industrial tanks or other Containers. Typically a sensor is installed in a Container and the measurement data from the sensor is transmitted to a local display or to a network device where levels can be monitored remotely in real time. Automated alerts can be triggered when the volume reaches a specified maximum or minimum value. This is particularly useful in situations where tanks may contain a volitile liquid, such as oil or chemicals, and conditions are unsafe to manually check liquid levels. Level monitoring is also commonly used where the tanks may be difficult to reach or access, or when the rapid change in volume is difficult to predict.
