April 12, 2019 - 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. This allows users to determine the value of the IoT system for their own company.
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 ensures the secure exchange of data and 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 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.
