Fill level management in the IoT
Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced a level sensor which transmits data to a secure remote station in the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The IoT sensor WILSEN.sonic.level is bundled into a starter package with the WILSEN.service and a business data platform. This allows users to more quickly determine the value of the IoT system for their own company.IoT-Sensor WILSEN.sonic.level
With the WILSEN.sonic.level, Pepperl+Fuchs presents an ultrasonic wireless sensor for monitoring fill levels in mobile containers, tanks, and silos. In addition, the battery-operated device determines the geolocation of the container and transmits the collected data via a GSM or LoRaWAN connection to a defined collection point on the Internet. The WILSEN.service is said to ensure the secure exchange of data, and allows centralised management of all IoT sensors in the field. In turn, software systems and data platforms for business data processing can be connected to the service.>
