The Equipment Group of Air Liquide America Specialty Gases recently announced the introduction of DATAL ALert™, a compressed gas and liquid management system that combines cell phone and Internet technologies to provide an advanced remote telemetry solution.

The system includes GPS mapping of cylinders plus usage and trending reports that empower users to minimise on-site cylinder inventory.

DATAL ALert delivers ‘hands-off’, easy-to-use and cost-effective tracking of cylinder gas usage by continuously monitoring cylinder gas assets, as they're in use. DATAL ALert seamlessly collects, analyses, formats, transmits and reports critical cylinder gas data through a customised web interface.

Reports and messaging are available 24/7 via email, fax, web browser and even smartphone.

DATAL ALert electronic components feature the latest lithium battery and low power wireless telemetry technology, and can be powered from internal primary batteries, solar panels and rechargeable batteries, or directly from external power supplies ranging from 6 to 60 volts DC or 115 and 230 volts AC to eliminate the concern about power failures.

Air Liquide America Specialty Gases, LLC operates over 30 facilities throughout North America to provide fast, localised delivery by dedicated trucks. Mixture facilities are ISO 9001:2000 certified while laboratories are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited.
