Trouble-free Operation –
without unnecessary costs and carbon emissions
Digitalization and automation are the major topics of our time, and not only in Industry 4.0. Municipal facilities must provide care first and foremost, but in an age of rising cost pressures and a shortage of skilled workers, having a cost-effective, streamlined operation is now more important than ever. This is also true for sustainability. Sensor technology is the basis of every digital measurement and control system and a prerequisite for effective optimization measures. It must provide reliable measured values even under the most difficult conditions – without requiring a great deal of maintenance. As a result, more and more municipalities are relying on contemporary radar technology.
How much capacity does the waste bunker at the incineration plant still have? Does a container need to be emptied? Collection staff need reliable answers to these questions day after day, otherwise there is a risk of a disposal backlog and complaints from residents. In practice, however, this is easier said than done, as contamination from dirt, condensate, or smoke quickly renders many conventional sensors useless. With radar technology, you’re always on the safe side.
Radar sensors from Symeo keep a constant eye on the waste load. This saves time and resources, as waste can be emptied when needed, saving trips and fuel.
Our product recommendation
An overhead crane, for example for feeding a waste incineration plant, must be precisely controlled to ensure effective operation and avoid collisions. Conventional sensors often capitulate after a short time in the face of the soiling found in waste bunkers and should therefore be replaced by contemporary radar-based devices.
Radar sensors from Symeo provide precise position data at all times – no matter how dirty things get.
Disposal vehicles deliver large quantities of waste to storage bunkers day after day. In doing so, they must approach the unloading zone while reversing and without a direct line of sight. This must be done as quickly as it is safely, otherwise there is a risk of collision damage or traffic jams in the depot. Radar is also a safe and viable sensor technology in this situation.
Radar sensors from Symeo facilitate and accelerate the docking of refuse collection vehicles in conjunction with optical feedback systems.
Most people hardly notice them, but sewers, stormwater overflow basins, and wastewater treatment plants are essential to a functioning infrastructure. Their capacity must also be closely monitored, otherwise there is a risk of flooding and environmental damage. The sometimes heavy soiling or even flooding pose great challenges for the sensors. Radar technology delivers precise measurements in these situations – even under extreme conditions.
Radar sensors from Symeo operate reliably even under the most difficult conditions and do not require maintenance. They enable control center staff to immediately identify where congestion or backups are forming and initiate countermeasures – before the problem rises to the surface.
