Energy-efficient system for the determination of the silo-content / silo-level in moveable/fixed silos
and wireless communication to IT-center for further telematics applications.
MobileSilo is a fully energy-efficient system, which ensures the precise measurement of the silo content / silo-level as well as the transfer of the measurement results by means of long-life batteries.
MobileSilo is operable in the field for more than 2 years without batteries to be replaced.
Regardless of the position of the silos, a secure data transfer takes place to the logistics center or the existing ERP system and offers automatic post order algorithms.
Via cloud-service MobileSilo informs on next expected refill time as well as status of work at building site.
The goal is also to enable an optimized refill logistics via MobileSilo system, which results in greatly reduced refill costs (logistic costs) for the customer as well as a green fingerprint through a CO2 reduction.
MobileSilo consists of:
- MobileSilo measurement device
- MobileSilo communication unit
- MobileSilo cloud / web service
Customer success story

There has never been a time when investing in a Smart Metering technology has been as important as it is today.
Smart Metering solutions help water network operator companies keep track of their customers meters without manual reading, and with the help of VERICOM - radio Mesh-Network - Smart Metering solution.
Siegener Versorgungsbetriebe GmbH is a private limited company that – amongst other things – also specializes in water network operation in the city of Volnsberg / Germany.
The project included a Smart Metering system that is based on innovative, battery powered VERICOM radio mesh-network solution and the whole mesh-network (all connected meters and measuring devices) transmit their data automatically to mobile/cellular VERICOM data-concentrator with a fixed position in center of the city.
“Using VERICOM radio Smart Metering solution saved Siegener Versorgungsbetriebe GmbH a lot of stress and cost, it also gave our customers an accurate billing of their real hourly water consumption.” Mr Haardt informs “with this system, Siegener Versorgungsbetriebe GmbH was able to maximize its work force by channeling them to a more challenging task, leaving the water meter reading "business" to VERICOM radio based Smart Metering solution”.
“VERICOM - radio mesh-network - Smart Metering solution is a type of networking wherein each node in the network may act as an independent router. VERICOM radio solution comes with a unique innovation that does not require a fixed-line network system to read and collect data; this framework wipes out the need to physically access or visually read water meters manually, enabling water operators to collect data from meters situated in spots that are not accessible or hilly. It automatically allows for ceaseless connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked ways by “hopping” from node to node until it gets to its destination. Each radio node (battery operated VERICOM radio node) is able to give each other VERICOM radio node a "piggyback-ride".
Using VERICOM Mesh- Network achieved a self-healing network that can still operate when one node breaks down or a connection goes bad. As a result, our solution is very stable and efficient, as there is often more than one path between a source and a destination in the network.” explains Mr Sonnleitner, General Manager of VERAUT GmbH.
“In just over 5 months of use, VERICOM - radio Mesh-Network - Smart Metering solution has offered 99.47 % accuracy in hourly reading and supplying data” says water network supervisor of SVB-Siegen.
