Tank Mesh Wireless Communication

TMW

Scalable and Customizable Telemetry Solutions

Built on 900 MHz radios, Tank Mesh sentinels and stick transceivers can transmit signals from analog or digital sensors up to .05 and 3-4 miles, respectively. Additionally, Tank Mesh networks can be connected to the online Tank Cloud data portal by integrating a Tank Cloud master into the network.

Description

Built on 900 MHz radios, Tank Mesh Wireless Communication allows you to extend your Modbus network without exhausting your budget.

Rugged Construction
Sentinels and stick transceivers are designed and built for outdoor installation.

Hazardous Location Approvals
Sentinels and stick transceivers carry Non-Incendive or Intrinsically Safe CSA approvals.

Easy to Install
Tank Mesh Wireless Communication integrates easily with your existing RS-485 Modbus network, and can incorporate analog sensors. Sentinels and stick transceivers are self configuring for star or mesh networks.

Extended Range
Sentinels can communicate up to 0.5 miles, and stick transceivers can communicate up to 3 - 4 miles.
