Principle of data transmission
GPRS Data Transmission In Customer Network


  • The tank level is investigated using an ultrasonic compact echo sounder Type NivuCompact. Its extremely low startup time of only 3 seconds and the resulting extremely low power consumption allow very long lifetimes.
  • For detection and transmission of readings an independent battery-powered GPRS data logger Type NivuLog Easy has been used.
  • The readings are transmitted from the GPRS data logger via the VPN to the customer‘s D2W server. This server then transmits the current data via OPC interface to the existing process conducting system (WinCC).
