Level monitoring & visualisation overview

Level visualisation is useful in various industries and applications to get a quick overview of the status of storage units or processes. It enables operators to take appropriate action and work efficiently, especially in industrial environments where level monitoring can be critical. Sensors for continuous level measurement, point level detection and interface determination can be equipped with a level indicator.


The electrical signal from the level measurement technology is usually converted into a standardised output such as 4-20 mA or Modbus in order to forward on to monitoring or control systems. Various technologies are available for fill level indication, which can be configured on a project-specific basis. Simple LED digital displays for the evaluation of a 4-20 mA signal for installation in control cabinets or for wall mounting as well as touch panels and web server modules with visualisation software. The UWT web server solutions fulfil all the requirements of modern fill level monitoring.

What should you look out for when choosing
the right level monitoring & visualisation system?

  • Type of visualisation: Decide which type of level visualisation best suits your needs, be it a digital display, a graphic, a computer screen or another method.
  • Usability: Ensure that the visualisation is user-friendly and can be easily understood and interpreted.
  • Integration: Think about how visualisation can be integrated into your existing systems or processes, especially if you use a comprehensive monitoring system.
  • Alarms and notifications: Consider whether you want to integrate alarms and notifications into the visualisation in order to be warned of critical events.
  • Scalability: Ensure that the visualisation solution can be expanded or adapted as required to meet future requirements.
  • Costs: Consider the costs of implementing and operating the visualisation and ensure that they are in line with your budget.


The right fill level visualisation makes it possible to see the current fill level in a container or tank at a glance and thus contribute to the efficient monitoring and control of processes.
