BinMaster has put forward for industry consideration a range of four sensors that can provide cloud-based connections in accurate mapping and measuring silo and bin content. It says its level sensors play a leading role in utilizing cloud technology developments for a range of industries including those in grain storage and handling.
Cloud-based programs are compatible with a wide range of sensors and measurement technologies. Their versatility lends them to be used with vessels of vastly different shapes and sizes, storing all types of powders, solids, or liquids, says the company.
It adds that its range of sensors provides better accuracy, improves safety - eliminating the need for staff to climb structures - and save time. The four most suitable for grain storage include the Non-Contact Radar, the 3D Level Scanner, the SmartBob, and the Laser.
SmartBob can be uniquely configured using a variety of cables, probe designs, and special options for solid, slurry, brine, and liquid applications. Long-lasting, hassle-free service is ensured by SmartBob’s cable cleaning system. SmartBob is extremely rugged, featuring the industry’s strongest cable and motor design completely sealed in a strong, lightweight molded polycarbonate enclosure which is explosion proof and rated for Class II, Groups E, F & G certifications, and requires no field calibration.
LaserMeasuring in a tight beam, lasers are suited for narrow vessels and lower or no-dust environments. Laser-level sensors are mounted and powered on silos without complicated or expensive wiring. This single-point laser installs quickly on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible because it is powered by a replaceable Lithium battery. The SPL-200 measures solids in silos up to 98 feet tall (30 meters) in low or no-dust environments. The FVL-200 measures livestock feed in silos up to 35 feet tall (10 meters). Both models take interval readings from once per hour to once a day with a battery life of three to five years.

Description: Only change to description is removing arbitrary line breaks. Point level indicators are an affordable, accurate tool to measure and alert to inventory high and low levels. Easy to set up and configurable to fit a wide range of application needs, point level indicators are a must-have for a safe, efficient operation. This whitepaper details what users can expect from a point level device and explores point level options in the marketplace and considerations when choosing a sensor.
Bin Level Measurement Transformed by IOT
Many feed mills, grain storage facilities, and pet food plants are big in size and small on staff. Making bin inventory management available anywhere anytime enables people to be more efficient in their jobs. Today, a simple log into a website usi...
