Wireless Tank Farm Monitoring in Unsafe or Harsh Conditions

Wireless Tank Farm Monitoring in Unsafe or Harsh Conditions Image

Application: Monitoring a large tank farm

Challenges: Numerous tanks cover a large area and need to be continuously monitored

Solution: SureCross Wireless Network

Benefits: No need for cables and batteries can last for years

Tank farms need to continually monitor various parameters, including temperature, pressure, flow, pH, conductivity, or water levels.


With a SureCross Wireless Network, FlexPower Nodes are deployed at each tank without the need to run cables for power or I/O data transmission. Banner’s unique power management capability enables a Node equipped with a pressure sensor to operate for years on a single DX81 battery power supply.

A DX80 FlexPower Node offers a combination of discrete and analog I/O in a single package, eliminating the need for time-consuming manual data collection. Tank levels can be monitored with an ultrasonic sensor wired to an analog input. Alarms or setpoints can be announced with an EZ-LIGHT on the discrete outputs. Remotely located tank sensor readings can be collected by the DX80 Gateway Pro for data tracking, sending e-mail alerts, or to trigger specific events.

Banner’s SureCross DX99 wireless FlexPower Nodes offer Class I, II, and III, Division 1 and Zone 0 certifications for installations requiring Intrinsically Safe operation. SureCross FlexPower I/O devices are available in metal housings with integrated battery or polycarbonate housings with an external battery supply.
