As Industry 4.0 progresses, it is coming to involve several aspects of the gas industry. This includes technologies for the regulation and control of gases in many application areas. Well aware of this evolution, the Cavagna Group has been exploring some of these applications for a long time. These efforts have given rise to the Group’s brand-new “ClickClick” telemetry device, which proves that a “smart” philosophy can become a practical reality even in the optimization of LPG use. Thanks to the “ClickClick” solution, LPG users and distributors can constantly monitor gas levels and other information about the operation of regulation units in multi-cylinder systems.
What’s more, they can even do it remotely on tablets or smartphones.
When “ClickClick” is applied to the Reca automatic changeover, it detects the filling levels and replacement status of the cylinders, sending alerts (via e-mail) to the user and the gas distribution company. A dedicated cloud platform is used as part of the ICT process.
Thanks to the use of the “ClickClick” device, it is possible to do away with manual readings of the filling status of gas cylinders and reduce handling costs and efforts. In addition, it also fully optimizes emergency deliveries, never easy to manage and always stressful for the customer. In fact, remote management of LPG pressure gas cylinders lends itself to customization and thus the improvement of service.
With so many benefits to using the “ ClickClick ” telemetry device, making the “smart” switch is really a no-brainer. Among its advantages, it boasts easy installation (it can be connected directly to the regulator), low power consumption and a long-lasting battery.
Furthermore, customers are ensured compatibility with all Cavagna automatic changerovers that are already in use. Versatile and communication-oriented, the “ClickClick” device offers users several possibilities such as:
- customizable notifications on multiple devices
- notification history
- monitoring of signal quality and battery status.
The collection of consumption data makes customer care more efficient and cost-effective.
Furthermore, LPG distributors can have a complete overview of all their customers’ requests for cylinder replacement. Lastly, historical data collection optimizes the management and delivery of gas cylinders.
