The system also works in challenging environments, ensuring efficient radio links, even under ground. The system can be quickly and easily installed.
The use of a 169 MHz radio system eliminates the need for cables, lowering installation and maintenance costs.
The modular system allows features to be added with great flexibility. Therefore, one or more sensors may be installed at the service station and linked to a gateway.
The gateway collects data and sends it to the cloud/platform for storage and analysis.
In addition to the wireless probes, Ste Industries and Start Italiana propose an innovative product for fuel level management to work with fuel transport trucks.
Trucks equipped with the same telematics system will be able to receive data on an onboard screen, and read fuel levels at the specific service station.
Sub-GHz SRD frequency bands are ideal for license-free, low-speed data transmission applications.
The basic concept of SRDs is to allow free use of certain frequency bands based on the reduced probability of causing interference with other “Primary Services”. Limits are posed on maximum radiated RF power, on transmission duty cycles, along with other sophisticated requirements to reduce the probability of interference, such as LBT (Listen Before Talk) and AFA (Adaptive Frequency Agility).
In Europe, SRDs are regulated by the ETSI EN 300 220 and CEPT ERC 70-03 standards. Other Countries have similar standards, such as, in the United States, the FCC Rules, Part 15 and Part 90.
