Application

During the winter season the highways and road maintenance departments safeguard the roads, public squares and pedestrian paths by clearing off snow and ice. The quantities of road salt required are stored in silos and when needed, loaded onto snowploughs. Reliable level measurement is necessary for the optimal and adequate stocking of the salt. The stock level information is transmitted to the central control centre.
