As with other areas of application, strength of Tetraedre devices is the fact that they operate on battery for long periods and they transmit their data overt the GSM / GPRS network which available almost everywhere.
As such, Tetraedre has developped the TRMC-15 for waste management applications. This device measures by ultrasound the height of the waste and sends data regularly (typically once per day) these data to a server. The user sees the data on an intranet or internet website
To validate our technology, we have installed with our partner Swisslogix a test container produced by the company Brüco atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps (Jungfraujoch 3471m above sea level) to test the measurement and communication GPRS in difficult conditions. Everything works well, even at -20°C!. The TRMC-15 transmits data every night (see picture above)
