Level Up:
ALTA Propane Tank Monitor

Monnit’s new ALTA® Propane Tank Monitor is a direct response to propane distributors and energy firms requesting the ability to check the levels of propane tanks remotely. The new sensor enables these firms to switch from schedule-based to needs-based deliveries and eliminate:

  • Time spent physically checking tanks for sufficient propane levels
  • Expenses incurred to reach remote tanks that don’t require service
  • Wear and tear on service vehicles

Preventing tanks from running dry also means propane and energy firms can stop spending extra time reinitializing a customer’s propane system. Beyond the loss of service, reinitialization can cost a customer hundreds.

The new Propane Tank Monitor transmits exact tank readings by integrating with both Sr and Jr R3D® Remote Ready gauges (magnetically driven, Hall Effect compatible dials). Additional sensor features include:

  • Configurable text, email, and call alerts
  • Industry-leading range of 1,200+ feet (through 12+ walls)
  • Exceptional battery life of 12+ years (AA battery models)
  • Bank-level encryption for superior data protection
  • Global frequencies for international use

With a “polar coaster winter” predicted, this is the time to economize propane management—call

500 AMP 3-Phase Current Meter

More Power to You!

Monnit is readying the new ALTA Industrial Wireless Three Phase Current Meter - 500 Amp for industrial applications. As with the existing ALTA three-phase 150 Amp current meter, the new device will remotely monitor and report the following variables:

  • Minimum RMS current
  • Maximum RMS current
  • Average RMS current
  • Duty cycle for each phase
  • Combined amp hours of all three phases

iMonnit will utilize this data to generate watt-hour or kilowatt-hour readings based on a user-specified RMS voltage. This insight will support those operating and maintaining high-powered loads such as air compressor motors, milling machines, large refrigerated areas, and material handling machinery.

More power demands more knowledge. Email us at and be the first to know when the 500 Amp sensor is ready to ship.
