Aquatel and our journey to market
  • Aquatel started with the production of a simple wireless level indicator the S106.  The S106 Tank Unit was mounted on the top of the tank and using ultrasonic sound, it measured the fluid level.  This reading was then sent wirelessly over hundreds of feet to a Bench Unit, which displayed the liquid level. 
  • In 2007 Aquatel introduced the S207E to replace the S106 and also released the M107, which had the added ability to switch on and off pumps or solenoid valves. Both these new models utilized Aquatel’s patented parabolic swivel cone technology, offering better level accuracy and improved radio range to 300m (1000’) standard line of sight.     
  • The M107 system allows the user to set high and low fluid level limits and alarms in a remote tank. The system ensures that these are maintained and notifies the user if there is a problem during either a filling or draining cycle.  This control system removes the need for manual intervention. 
  • Traditionally communication between the tank and pump is through a wire, often requiring a lot of trenching and long cable runs.  The Aquatel M107 wireless controller can be installed quickly without involving any site works.
  • In late 2010 Aquatel released the D110, a multi-tank capable monitoring system that can remotely monitor up to 6 tanks and a new look M107 (M107-BT). Both these new models use improved FH (frequency hopping) Radio Technologies, easy to read blue backlit LCD display and a pile of new features to widen the applications in which they are used, radio range now up to 10km (6miles) line of sight ( when used with our booster antenna part. AQ920-7).
  • In 2011 Aquatel added a serial port to the D110 Display unit allowing the system to communicate with leading Home Automation modules (Axium, Bitwise, Geni, Push, Control4 and Crestron).
  • 2017 - Aquatel is working with some of the very best global developer networks, we plan to change how the world managers our precious resources. 
  • Aquatel currently sells into New Zealand, Australia and the USA.
