Wireless transceiver

JOWA Consilium US has teamed with Accutech, a Division of Adaptive Instruments, to introduce the Wireless Resistance Transceiver and the Wireless Base Radio for level gauging. Customized for use with JOWA's resistance-tape sensors, the transceiver and radio together allow for level monitoring in places that were previously thought cost-prohibitive due to the expense of running wire or adding a power source.
