ThingsLog Cat M1 Level Monitoring
Remote tank water level monitoring over Cat M1 is a remote level monitoring system that consists of a Narrowband IoT low-power data logger, level sensor, cloud platform, and a mobile app. The solution is ideal for monitoring low power in remote locations with no power supply, like remote tanks, open channels, rivers, sewers, wastewater, dams, or reservoirs. The remote-level monitoring data loggers come preconfigured and ready to use.
How does ThingsLog Cat M1 Level Monitoring system work?
The sensor is attached through a threaded connection to a pine with fluid or an air duct. Each sensor is carefully selected for the fluid and the pressure range that will be monitored. We support relative pressure up to 1000 bar and absolute pressure up to 35 bar.
Data Logger Operation
The data logger wakes up at configurable intervals, provides a power supply to the sensor, reads the measurements, and records the values in memory. The logger wakes on configurable transmission intervals and transmits the recorded readings. For example, the logger wakes and transmits an instant alarm if the reading bridges a preconfigured low/high-pressure threshold. Alarms are forwarded to the subscribed users through an email, mobile notification, or an API message.

Platform and Mobile App
ThingsLog Platform is cloud-based and accessible over the Internet. You will have your username and password and the option to set up extra users if more people need access to the data. In addition, the platform will allow you to monitor the level of your tank remotely on your computer or mobile phone. You will be able to set high and low-level alarms, review detailed readings and alarms and track the level/volume of your tank. A custom dashboard and some daily or weekly reports could also be set.
ThingsLog platform and the mobile app support six languages – English, German, Spanish, Russian, Greek, and Bulgarian.
