Picoty adopts Tekelek’s LoRa tank monitoring technology in France.

Tekelek is delighted to announce the launch of a large-scale deployment of LoRa-connected ultrasonic sensors with Picoty in France, which will enable Picoty to monitor tanks across its group of 27 affiliates in Western France. The Picoty Group, one of France’s largest fuel distribution companies, provisions fuel, gas, lubricants, ad blue and additives to tens of thousands of tanks in France. The project will use the LoRa network and data platform of Objenious, part of the Bouygues Telecom group.

“We have chosen Tekelek for their deep experience developing accurate and robust tank sensors,” said Mathias Schildt – Growth Development Director and Isabelle Bodecot Chief Product Manager. “Together with Objenious, which operates the largest LoRa network in France so far, they have put together a compelling solution that allows us to monitor both over-ground and underground tanks throughout France, with excellent quality and battery life. This solution enables us to better organise more efficient deliveries, reduce our carbon footprint, and optimise our logistics. We can offer this solution to a wider range of customers than before due to the cost and battery performance advantages of LoRa, meaning our customers are assured a reliable, efficient and timely fuel delivery service.”

Tekelek Expands IoT Activity with Wine In-Process Remote Monitoring System Partner Project.

Commencing in April 2018, Tekelek is excited to announce that we are now active in a Wine In-process Remote Monitoring System (WIReMS) project together with Tomware s.c.a.r.l. of Italy and FreeSense Solutions B.V. of the Netherlands. European Union supported, the WIReMS project is a concept of automatic system to perform real-time monitoring and control of wine fermentation. 

Fermentation is by far the most important in wine production process. Winemakers commonly experience sluggish or stuck fermentations due to not complete consumption of sugars operated by yeast. This fact can decrease efficiency, cause loss in wine quality and potentially lead to economic loss.

As part of this joint project, Tekelek intends to develop and apply a real-time monitring system, using sensing nodes placed inside the wine production line and applied to the tanks, to measure critical parameters affecting wine quality. Introducing Tekelek’s tank monitoring technology expertise will focus on improved operational efficiency and increased bottom line profits.

Tekelek Speeds Device Time to Market with Kerlink Reference Design

PRESS RELEASE

Thorigné-Fouillard, France, and Shannon, Ireland – Feb. 26, 2018, 09:00 a.m. GMT – Kerlink (ALKLK – FR0013156007), a specialist and global leader in solutions dedicated to the Internet of Things (IoT), and Tekelek, a leading developer and manufacturer of telemetry products and solutions for more than 20 years, today announced that Tekelek launched a remote-metering solution with new devices based on Kerlink’s reference design platform and LoRaWANTM connectivity.

The platform, which Kerlink added to its suite of services in 2017, is a complete package of hardware, software, development-and-test tools and guidelines to help device makers design and produce IoT network devices with an accelerated time to market.

For Tekelek, the No. 1 supplier of ultrasonic tank-monitoring devices in Europe with more than 2.5 million devices in the field, the combination of Kerlink’s reference design and WirnetTM Stations, and LoRaWANTM IoT connectivity, enabled the company to quickly design and produce remote-monitoring sensors and assure customers they could cost effectively deploy networks for monitoring gas containers.

“Kerlink’s reference design dramatically shortened time to market for our new remote-monitoring devices, and significantly reduced Tekelek’s development costs and the number of personnel needed for the project,” said Oliver McCarthy, general manager of Tekelek.

“Prior to adopting the Kerlink reference design, a key business challenge had been convincing customers of the value of investing in cellular technology to monitor their equipment, which typically is spread over wide areas. These deployments are now part of the evolution in remote telemetry applications,” McCarthy said. “Kerlink was the right fit for us, because they are the leading experts in LoRa® communication technology, while Tekelek’s core expertise is in applications that measure content levels in containers. Combining these essential strengths made the decision to work with Kerlink the obvious choice.”

Marie Le Berre, vice president of Kerlink’s Infrastructure Solutions business unit, noted that Tekelek considered competing options for equipment design and network deployment before choosing to partner with Kerlink.

“Tekelek’s ability to convince its customers of the benefits of the LoRa® solution with Kerlink’s reference design – and then to enable them to quickly and simply leverage LoRaWANTM connectivity – is a strong use case for companies around the world that want to put the IoT to work for their companies and their customers,” she said.
Kerlink will demonstrate its solutions, including its low power IoT reference design, at Mobile World Congress, Feb. 26-March 1, at booth 8.0C11.
