Actility - Pepperl+Fuchs - Akenza Smart Level Monitoring

Multiple industries are already using the level monitoring solution and acknowledge IoT technology for better growth. Beverage, dairy, petroleum, water, and pharmaceuticals are a few sectors that are tremendously following this approach. Actility level monitoring solution enables better and more accurate results along with collective data storage for easy access from anywhere. It works to reduce the workload and operation costs, which further leads to an increasing business profit.

The WILSEN.sonic.level wireless LoRaWAN ultrasonic sensor is at the heart of the smart level monitoring and management solution. It is used to remotely monitor fill levels in containers, tanks, and silos. As well as monitor water levels of rivers, lakes, and flood basins.

The sensor transmits more than just filling levels. GPS data from the sensor allows assets such as containers to be tracked, while other information such as temperature readings ​​and battery charge status enables it to benefit from predictive maintenance capabilities.

This solution is deployed with a local LoRaWAN private network operated by Actility and an application operated by the akenza IoT platform.


*Actility global IoT SIM is a simcard that allows private LoRaWAN networks anywhere, without any installation hassle, and with no hidden costs.

Innovative ultrasonic sensor solution to ensure industrial flexibility

What are the challenges?

  • Industry environment experts are worried about challenging environmental and natural disasters such as rivers and lakes overflowing their banks and flood basin levels, as they do manual observations instead of using technologically stress-free environments.
  • Waste Management executives are frustrated when it comes to relying on the non-interconnected waste management system. Managing waste management crews is a challenging job. They need a remote monitoring system so that the containers are only collected once filled to a set amount.
  • Logistics experts are annoyed as they cannot share tanks or silos fill levels data in an automatic manner with their suppliers, because they don’t have the data on their existing supply logistics system and it is not tailored to their needs.

Applications Examples

  • Smart Farming: Modern agriculture supplies both food and energy. The WILSEN.sonic.level helps farmers to remotely monitor the fill level of distributed feed silos or the pit of a biogas plant. Using such an IoT system relieves the farmer of inspection rounds and creates space for essential tasks in his efficient operation.

  • Smart Environment: The wireless sensor WILSEN.sonic.level monitors fill levels of rivers, lakes, and flood basins. It transmits additional information such as temperature, geolocation, and battery status even across many kilometers helping to better protect against flooding.

  • Smart Cities: The demands placed on cities and municipalities to provide citizens with convenient, environmentally friendly living arrangements are increasing. The WILSEN.sonic.level enables intelligent disposal management, in which the filling levels of used glass, old clothes, and recyclables containers are monitored remotely so that the containers are only collected once filled to a set amount.

  • Smart Logistics: Efficient supply chains in a globalized world must not run out of raw materials and supplies. The WILSEN.sonic.level helps to determine the fill level in tanks or silos. It gives the supplier the opportunity to offer their customers a supply logistics system that is tailored to their needs.

*Optional backhaul as a service with Actility global SIM

Streamline delivery, installation, and operational processes with Ready-to-Use Pre-connected LoRaWAN gateways including backhaul connectivity powered by Actility global IoT SIM.

Pre-configured LoRaWAN gateways are ready for the plug-in, minimal-cost installation. However, due to IT security policies, it is increasingly difficult to use the existing LAN for backhaul IP connectivity. The perfect solution is to equip LoRaWAN gateways with our global IoT SIM: just ship to the customer site, and the private network will be immediately operational as soon as the gateway is plugged into the main power.
