Abstract: The long-term ramications can be long lasting when a making decisions, selecting and implementing a wireless M2M network. There are factors to consider today that did not exist or where not important several years ago. One must rst consider what the level data will be used for and how does it t with the corporate network. Then, there are other considerations that can affect the satisfaction with the sensor. Among these considerations, specically when thinking about level sensors working with your wireless network, are production levels, power consumption, and network exibility. First, one should consider, what you are going to do with the data? The use for level in a tank can be very simple, like showing level in a tank to prevent an overow. It can be used to alarm or notify a hauling company to pick and transport oil or water. In many cases, level in a tank will be measured to ensure a proposer hydrostatic pressure to feed a LACT unit downstream. In any of these cases, accuracy is not as important as the reliability of the measurement and the durability of the sensor. A simple readout at ground level can suffice or there can be a simple output to a PLC or HMI.
