IoT Water Level Sensor Solution
What is the IoT Water Level Sensor Solution?
In recent years, heavy rains and successive typhoons have caused frequent floods. Many rivers, however, are still unimproved due to cost issues. There are also other costly and man-hour consuming tasks like regular maintenance of water facilities such as reservoirs.The solution combining LPWA IoT water level sensors and a water level monitoring application provides low-cost observation and monitoring abilities from anywhere, anytime, which helps manage and monitor unimproved rivers, underpasses, reservoirs from the perspective of disaster prevention.
Long-term and reliable water level observation/remote monitoring
The device is equipped with a solar unit and a backup power supply to enable maintenance-free, long-term reliable observations.
Low running cost
Using LPWA communication technology, which enables lower power consumption, wider coverage area, and lower cost than conventional technologies has allowed customers to introduce the solution at lower running costs.
The self-maintenance feature notifies the cloud server environment of the device's power status and communication status.
Low-cost disaster prevention and facility management through water level observation
You can remotely monitor water levels anytime, anywhere using LPWA (Sigfox) compatible water level meters and a monitoring application.
Basic Feature 01: Water level sensor
Water level measurement with a water level sensor that has a built-in semiconductor pressure sensor
Basic Feature 02: Long-term data collection
Having a WiFi positioning feature for indoor positioning
Basic Feature 03: Accumulation of measured
water level data
Ten minutes of measuring water levels mean that the data can be stored for one year.
Basic Feature 04: Sigfox communication
Ability to send data to Sigfox low-cost IoT network
Basic Feature 05: Alerm output
If the water level reaches one of the upper or lower limits, up to four of which can be set, the system will send alarm packets via Sigfox.
Basic Feature 06: LCD display
Equipped with a graphic LCD with a backlight, which enables data checks or device setting during on-site maintenance
- Scene 01︓ Monitoring the water level of a river
- Scene 02: Monitoring underpasses for flooding
- Scene 03: Monitoring water levels of reservoirs
Example: Providing high-speed network infrastructure to complex facilities
- Municipalities in Saitama Prefecture
- Installed to:
- 11 monitoring points in rivers
During heavy rains, it had been difficult for local government officials to check many places having a risk of flooding in a short time. The remote monitoring system now allows them to grasp the situation from their office and take early action. IoT technology can ensure the safety of residents and their sense of security, as awareness of disaster prevention has increased in recent years.
There are flexible options to change the interval of water level measurements, turn on/off the alarm feature, install a solar unit or not, and others.
