Level Sensor Connects Via IIoT

Pepperl+Fuchs presents the IoT sensor WILSEN.sonic.level, a level sensor that transmits its data to a secure remote station in the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The sensor is bundled into a starter package with the WILSEN.service and a business data platform, making it easier to gain an introduction to the technology. This allows users to more quickly determine the value of the IoT system for their own company.

 

The WILSEN.sonic.level ultrasonic wireless sensor for monitoring fill levels in mobile containers, tanks, and silos 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 not only ensures the secure exchange of data, but also allows centralized 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.

 

Pepperl+Fuchs has compiled an entry-level starter kit that includes all the components required to form a working IoT system. For more details, visit Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH and/or email [email protected].
