Software functionality

The online Withthegrid application is designed to give the user a complete overview of asset performance. You can view historic performance, set thresholds and alarms and enrich the overview with manual measurements from the field. 

 

Deep integration with this liquid level and temperature sensor allows you to: 

  • Automatically detect anomalies 
  • Have a real-time status of liquid: level/depth/temperature
  • Relative pressure measurement
  • Monitor follow-up actions for your personnel
