Reservoir in the Alps – level measurement with autonomous power supply
Quite simply: with a self-powered, all-in-one solution! At low water level, two VEGAWELL 52 suspension pressure transmitters were introduced into the lake. GSM/GPRS radio modems with SIM cards bridge the distance between the measuring points in the lake and the control centre. The two pressure transmitters are each connected to a radio modem and supplied locally. The water level in the reservoir is reliably detected and sent over the air to a VEGA web portal. The control centre of the utility company accesses the portal via a client-server connection and makes the readings available in its own network. This ensures uninterrupted monitoring around the clock. The entire solution is so energy efficient that it is able to make do with a small solar panel. An accumulator stores the energy captured from the sun. The measuring system is thus independent of an external power supply and, thanks to its integrated power management system, can be operated over long periods of time.
- Reliable level measurement in the reservoir secures the construction site
- utonomous measuring system, no additional power supply required
- Current measurement data readily available via radio modem in control centre
