Tank monitoring system SIUR for petrol stations

PURPOSE


Remote tank monitoring system TMS SIUR is a solution, which is connected to automatic tank gauge (ATG) systems (probes) and transmits tank's measurement data to central database with its following processing. TMS SIUR allows to:

TMS SIUR system allows connection of different customers to the same server, such as each of the customers will see only his tanks and will not know about any other customers connected to the system. The customers can be separate petrol stations, as well as whole petrol stations chains.

Remote tank monitoring system allows to provide automatic additional and independent actual control over work of staff on reception and dispensing of petroleum products at all gas stations of the company.

Remote tank monitoring system SIUR works autonomously and independently from control and POS systems and cash registers, which provides control over fuel dispensers at petrol stations and compilating accounting documents. Tank monitoring system eliminates possibility of distortion of recorded information by service personnel of petrol station.

Area of application: petrol and gas stations, tank farms, storage depots and industrial enterprises.

SYSTEM STRUCTURE


Installation of the TMS SIUR system requires that tanks are equiped with automatic tank gauge system (ATG system). ATG systems of almost every all manufacturers are supported by the SIUR system. In case if there is no ATG system installed - we can suggest Start Italiana probes.

Scheme of connections is the following:

TMS SIUR contains the following components:

  1. Module of data gathering and transfer - for the way how SIUR gets data from ATG systems (probes) installed in tanks and transfers them to central database, two options are available:
    • using UMKA remote data gathering controller - hardware controller, to which ATG system (probes) is connected
    • using SIUR-client - software application, which is to be installed on a personal computer (OS Windows or Linux), to which ATG system (probes) is connected
  2. Data storage module and execution of accounting operations ("MySQL" module) - server application with MySQL database (for OS Windows or Linux)
  3. Module of system configuration ("Config" module) - software application, which allows remote configuration of the SIUR system
  4. Module of tank visual monitoring ("GUI" module) - software application, which is installed on a personal computer and allows remote monitoring over current state of tanks
  5. Module of report generation ("eReport" module) - software application, which is installed on a personal computer and allows generation of reports for tank's states during a specified period

MODULE OF DATA GATHERING AND TRANSFER


UMKA remote data gathering controller:

UMKA controller is a little device with a SIM-card to be installed inside. Application of the UMKA allows to make the system work completely autonomously and even hidden from "eyes". During operation UMKA periodically requests measurement data from ATG system and accumulates them in its internal memory. Using SIM-card UMKA periodically connects to Internet and transfers accumulated measurement data to the central server database through GPRS connection. Also in case of alarms and emergency situations UMKA is able to send SMS-notifications.

SMS-notification can be programmed to be sent:

In case if measurement data from ATG system is also required for some other device (like personal computer, POS system, cash register, etc.) - then it is possible to get measurement data of ATG system through UMKA through its separate COM-port (simulator of ATG system):

SIUR-client:

In case if the petrol station already has a personal computer installed on site with connected Internet - then it is possible to use it to gather ATG system measurement data and transfer it to central server. Here are benefits of this variant:

DATA STORAGE MODULE AND EXECUTION OF ACCOUNTING OPERATIONS ("MySQL" MODULE)


"MySQL" module is the main module, without which operation of other modules is impossible. This module may be installed by customer on any computer with OS Windows or Linux. Installation of the module and its further administration can be carried out by the customer himself.

MODULE OF SYSTEM CONFIGURATION ("CONFIG" MODULE)


"Config" module serves for system configuration and provides user with graphical interface for:

MODULE OF TANK'S VISUAL MONITORING ("GUI" MODULE)


Module of visual presentation of current information on level gauges provides the user with an interface for graphical presentation of information about current values of measured product (level, temperature, density, pressure etc.). In case of excess of the measured values of the allowed range for these values - these values are highlighted in red.

REPORT GENERATION MODULE ("eReport" MODULE)


Report generation module provides a user with a graphical interface for report generation of values of measured product (level, temperature, density, pressure, etc.) for indicated period. Module allows:
