Pepperl+Fuchs presented an IoT sensor with integrated ultrasonic measurement for determining fill levels. The battery-operated device records data at regular intervals, and uploads it to the internet with the current geolocation, meaning it can also be used in mobile containers for position tracking.
The Wilsen.sonic.level is suitable for use in a variety of different wireless networks. For example, versions are available with a GSM interface for public mobile networks, and other versions have a LoRaWAN interface for using privately-operated low-power wireless networks.
The Wilsen.service not only handles the decoding and the targeted forwarding of the sensor data, but also offers secure device management. This device management also enables automated application parameterization of IoT sensors, and a structured roll-out for software updates.
