OleumTech®, a leading manufacturer of industrial, wireless automation, IIoT, and M2M solutions, today announced the release of the new Thief Hatch Switch, SX1000-S10. This latest product by OleumTech provides real-time open/close status of a thief hatch.  Producers can utilize the critical data to minimize product loss, as well as receive immediate notification of unintended emissions. The mounting option for the Thief Hatch Switch is flexible since it can be mounted on either side of the thief hatch and provides both normally open or normally closed contacts. The solution also includes a robust 10-foot industrial extension cable to eliminate the need for running conduit and wire. The Thief Hatch Switch is compatible with any OleumTech wireless and hardwired I/O or any third-party device, with an available discrete input.

“We are excited to add the Thief Hatch Switch to our growing product portfolio,” said Vrej Isa, COO of OleumTech. “This product is a cost-effective solution for operators and producers, as they can now remotely monitor the status of a thief hatch or vapor recovery system. To make it easy for our customers to integrate the switch, we offer our level sensor wireless transmitters with an available discrete input.”​
