Never run out again with Klass Oil and Magnus Radar Monitors
Magnus Radar Monitor- World’s First Battery Driven Radar Monitor
As a home heating oil supplier, we know how crucial it is to monitor your fuel level accurately. This is why we have teamed up with Magnus Smart Monitor which is the world’s first radar-based level monitoring solution. The monitor can notify us when the customer tank is running low on heating oil and this way we can make sure that our customers never run out of oil.
What is Magnus radar Monitor?
MAGNUS is an incredibly high accuracy level monitor that can remotely monitor tanks up to 4m in height. The battery-driven solution is low-powered when compared to expensive mains wired solutions and can measure at a high frequency for 5 years. The monitor is unaffected by environmental factors such as temperature, dust or humidity, which means that even in varying weather conditions, the readings can be relied on and are highly accurate: +/- 5mm to a range of 4 metres.
How does it work?
After your meter is installed we will be able to monitor the level of your heating oil tank. When your level of oil is low we will get a notification from your smart meter with a warning that you need a top-up. We will then send you a text message to notify you and give you a delivery date for your oil top-up. If you are not home on the scheduled day, you can always call us back and we will arrange a different day for you. By installing this smart meter Klass Oil guarantees that you will never run out of oil again!
