Remote Water Level Sensor

Remote water level monitoring systems have been used for quite some time in pump stations, effluent treatment systems and water plants. The capacity to have wireless monitoring even in isolated locations is considered priceless.

But how does remote water level monitoring really work?

For starters, you have to know the four primary elements required here and these are the remote water level sensor, the RTU or remote terminal unit, telemetry software and communication.

While these may seem simple, it can be a bit of a challenge to choose the suitable equipment for every business.


The sensor is being applied on the tank’s exterior in various positions which will depend on the function, with the usual positions being bottom and top. This has the ability to collect information when it comes to the tank level as well as other parameters with the use of technologies such as Hall Effect and ultrasound. The sensor also comes with the attachment system and this is often battery powered. In other remote places, a solar generator is also added to ensure that the battery stays charged.


The RTU or remote terminal unit is responsible for collecting the information gathered by the sensors. This also organizes the data and transmits signal to a communication devise found in the central hub. The RTU, in the standard systems, is also attached to sensors hardware. There is a wide array of potential wireless technologies that can be used and the best solution is going to depend on the conditions of the location. From satellite to Wi-Fi, almost all environments will have a good working solution.

Telemetry Software

A management software has the ability to acquire the information offered by the communication device then come up with photographic images which can be interpreted easily. Through this, it will become a much simpler task to monitor the appropriate operation of every site. Typically, the software also has the capacity to provide the actual figures involved for the analyzed parameters by clicking on specific areas on the diagram or through other means.


A communication device works on the hub side. This is often a piece of hardware being connected to a computer. It is the part of the equipment which collects information and through the help of a software interface, signal is being translated to readable information. Among the primary components of a communication device is the frequency showing how frequent the measure is being recorded and transmitted. The higher end devices can also let the user select the settings.

When you shop for a telemetry system or a remote water level sensor, you have to gather first as much information as you can regarding the tanks’ physical environment and your specific needs. The elements which can affect your decision the specific type of substance in tanks, the location of the site, number of sensors, the monitoring location and interference in place.

If you know your actual needs ahead of time, the search for the right system and remote water level sensor will become an easier and simpler job.
