Fill Level Management in the Internet of Things
Pepperl+Fuchs presents a level sensor, which transmits its data to a secure remote station in the industrial Internet of Things. The IoT sensor WILSEN.sonic.level 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. IoT-Sensor WILSEN.sonic.level
The industrial Internet of Things connects the virtual world of information technology with the real world of machine and plant engineering and opens up new possibilities for process automation. With the help of radio sensors that transmit their data to the Internet, it is also possible to control assets that are either widely distributed or seem impossible to connect due to their mobility.
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 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 of the components required to form a working IoT system. This time-limited, fixed-cost package allows interested parties to get started with the Internet of Things even without prior knowledge, so that they can gather experience in their own process environment as quickly as possible.
Automation is our world. A Perfect application solution is our goal.
A willingness to take entrepreneurial risks, a pioneering spirit, and a firm belief in their own inventive powers - these were the assets that Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs started out with when they opened their Mannheim radio repair shop in 1945. Their invention of the proximity switch a few years later proved their strength. It was also the starting point in a successful history defined by close customer relationships as well as innovative automation technologies and procedures. Then as now, our focus is directed squarely on the individual requirements of each customer. Whether as a pioneer in electrical explosion protection, or as a leading innovator of highly efficient sensors - the close communication with our customers is what allowed us to become the leader in automation technology. Our main objective is combining state-of-the-art technologies and comprehensive services to optimize our customers´ processes and applications.
