The KADO UZ sensor can measure the distance from the obstacle or filling of a container at preset time intervals, with the parameters listed below. Its use is appropriate wherever there is no access to detect the distance using a standard sensor. Emphasis is on long battery life and low data transmission costs. 

  •   Measuring range 20 - 200 cm  
  •   Measuring accuracy +/- 1 cm  
  •   Possibility of aggregation of measurement into one transmission message  

The KADO UZ can additionally be equipped with a GPS signal sensor and an accelerometer. In addition to reporting the current position, the sensor can detect motion initiation, continuous motion and stop motion. With an internal accelerometer, you can also monitor tilt of the object and set alarm states (overturning, exceeding threshold value etc.).  

Basic functions of the sensor KADO UZ:  

  •   Monitoring of actual fill level of container or measuring distance from obstacle
  •   Tracking of current location  
  •   Overview of object activities (tilt, movement start and stop, …)  
  •   Accurate record of utilization and unauthorized manipulation  
  •   Clear and easy overview of inventory  
  •   Regular reports when sensor is inactive (keep-alive)  
  •   Possibility of the sensor deactivation at planned shutdown  
  •   Trends analysis 
  •   Data history  

The KADO UZ sensor can be placed in indoor, outdoor or offsite without any limitation.  

The typical use cases of the sensor KADO UZ:

  •   Waste management (underground containers)  
  •   River & tidal level monitoring  
  •   Sewer monitoring  
  •   Septic level monitoring  
  •   Tank, container level monitoring  
  •   Monitoring of industrial tanks or silo houses  

The KADO UZ sensor has a durable and weather-proof design and can be easily mounted at the place of use. Its battery lasts up to 5 years (depending on the number of measurements and transmmitted messages) without any battery replacement.   

Typical alarm states: 

  •   Fill level of container beyond the limit  
  •   Distance from obstacle beyond the limit  
  •   Measuring error (clogged ultrasound, not receiving the backwave) 
  •   Changing the position of the object beyond the defined perimeters   
  •   Tilt change of the object  
  •   Exceeding the limit temperature (fire) 
  •   Exceeding the limit vibrations (vandalism)
