After recently supporting SENSILE with technology, development, and regional cellular regulatory in Australia and North America, Telit’s collaborationwith SENSILEcontinuesinto South America. In Brazil after winning a big bid with an LPG distribution giant, WACnGOpartnered with SENSILE toimplement new functionalities into SENSILE’s new remote monitoring units NETRIS®. The contract involves the deployment of thousands of units onthe customer’s LPG tanks to enhance efficiencies in distribution logistics,Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), carbon emissions reduction, and safety throughout its Latin American distribution operation.
NETRIS® is SENSILE’s flagship productbased on Telit’s cellular M2M module GE865-QUAD, and the result of over 10-years’ experience in development and production of autonomous telemetry equipment for the oil & gas industries. Its unique and user-friendly design makes it quick and easy to install in a wide variety of gas and liquid storage tanks.
