The non-contact level meter with extremely high accuracy measures every 10 seconds over 10 years maintenance-free. Wireless mounting facilitates installation in rough environments such as sewers and stormwater overflow or combined sewer overflow basins.
Reliable data transmission
During heavy rainfall events, for example, the water level swells and falls again within a very short time. Therefore, short measuring intervals of 10 seconds are necessary in order not to miss any event.
The Bluetooth (BLE) radar sensor also has an impressive battery life of 10 years; Due to the non-contact 60 GHz radar technology, operation is maintenance-free. The BLE radar sensor has a gas-tight and corrosion-resistant housing without metal parts. The data is reliably transferred to the platform, where it forms the basis for modern AI algorithms.
10,000 euros for further innovations
The prize money will be used to target further innovations at Microtronics. “Microtronics wants to continue its research and make modern technology accessible to small companies in particular. Together, we can use technology to make our future a little better every day without having to do without,” says Hans-Peter Buber, Managing Director Product at Microtronics;
With the overall victory of the “Niederösterreichischer Innovationspreis”, Microtronics also emerged as the State Award for Innovation. This is the highest official award for innovations in companies in Austria.
