There’s a lot of hype about continuous level measurement and non-contact sensors. Confused about which is right for you? Is dust an issue? Need fast update rates? Does material pile unevenly? What about affordability? Looking for better inventory accuracy?
How to Select a Continuous Level Sensor explains the different types of sensors from weight and cable, to ultrasonic, guided wave radar, open air radar, and 3D scanners. Read about the reality of using each type of sensor including the pros and cons and some helpful tips.
80 GHz non-contact radar is better from BinMaster. Why? You get the awesome performance of 80 GHz radar and all the options to simplify installation that you won’t find from anyone else. Mounting plates, swiveling holders, and a variety of flanges eliminate extra fabrication. Wireless options reduce costs and running long spans of wire. Local display consoles simplify data access from the ground or a vehicle. Log into BinView or Binventory for completely automated inventory access.
BinMaster’s 3D Scanner is the ONLY level sensor to measure and map multiple points and make a 3D visual of the topography of the material in the silo.
Account for surface variations in powders or solids and get accurate inventory within 1% to 3% of total stored volume. Reduce safety stocks and get a fast ROI on your sensor investment!
Check out the LL-100 laser level transmitter for measuring low-dust solids or opaque liquids. Measure distances up to 160 feet with accuracy of +/- 1 inch. Use it for level control, plugged chute detection, or monitoring buildup. Tight 1° beam can be precisely aimed in narrow silos or to avoid structure or corrugation. Adjustable 10° mounting flange directs beam to the output or bottom of the silo. Easy to configure without filling or emptying the silo
BinView puts level data at your fingertips wherever you have internet access. Away from the plant? Get level data on your bins, tanks, or silos anywhere, anytime. Get real-time inventory management and automated alerts to your phone, tablet, or PC. It’s compatible with many of BinMaster’s sensors measuring solids or liquids. One login to BinView gives you access to multiple vessels and locations.
Simplify inventory management with PC-based software networked on your LAN, WAN, or VPN. It’s a great alternative to PLC, HMI, and SCADA systems that requires no special programming. Monitor the level of solids or liquids in vessels of any size or shape. It works with many BinMaster continuous level sensors and gets you automated alerts, inventory levels, and historical reports from up to 100 vessels. Binventory™ is a highly affordable, one-time purchase of inventory tracking for any size operation.
