enLight® enSense™ Water Level Sensor
The new series of enLight® enSense™ sensors have been designed to work in harmony with the enLight platform and use the network created by the upgraded lights to carry the data from where it is being recorded to where it is needed in the cloud. The enSense family includes microclimate, road temperature, traffic volume/speed, flood warning, parking management and a variety of gas sensors for measuring air quality and gas build up.
The enSense Water Level Sensor can measure the height of the water table to an accuracy of 1mm from its default mounting point in the base of a lamp post. Like most of the sensors in the enSense range this sensor comes in a standard 32mm cylindrical package at different lengths to suit the application. The current version is wired into the enLight enTalkTM network by connecting to either the enLight entelli-Ballast™ for HID lamps or the enLight enLink™ LED adapter. Future wireless versions will enable the monitoring of water levels in drains, gullies, waterways and bore holes where wired connectivity is not practical..

Seamless integration with enLight lighting platform
All enSense sensors are designed to enhance the capability of the enLight platform. Many of the sensors can be pre-mounted in any of the enLight lantern family but they can also be connected and mounted below the lantern itself (such as air quality or microclimate) or in the lamp post to monitor water table level in the base of the column or tamper detection of the access panel. Larger sensors, such as the traffic sensor, can be mounted on the post below the lantern but can derive their power and connectivity from the lantern via a simple cable connection. Away from the lamp post, wireless enSense devices (coming 2017) can connect to the network via the enLight DOLFin® Pro for their data feed to be sent on to the enLight enTalk API.
Cost effective smart city deployment
By deploying the enLight platform on lamp posts across the city, town or campus, a whole host of
smart applications can be realised by utilising the network created by the lights. Multiple wireless technologies do not need to be funded and the inherent value of the street light estate increases as it allows resource reduction or increased efficiency projects to be deployed, without the major capital cost of their own networks. The enSense sensors are fully compatible with the enLight enCoreTM Management System or via other management platforms through the enLight enTalk API.
