80 GHz Radar Options Reduce Costs & Simplify Installation

Non‐Contact Radar Made Better by BinMaster

January 25, 2017 - Have you found that costs often double by the time you mount, wire, and install a sensor? BinMaster's innovative in-house solutions can help reduce the total time and cost of installation. 

Today it seems that every level sensor company offers a high‐powered non‐contact radar. However, not all of them offer a total solution. BinMaster, with its vertically integrated machine shop and in‐house engineering department, makes sure you not only get the sensor you need but the solution you need at a budget that won’t break the bank.

Mounting your non-contact radar can come with a number of challenges. BinMaster has designed and manufactures its 80 GHz non-contact radar to easily accommodate a wide variety of mounting scenarios. What if your roof isn’t flat? The NCR-80 mounts easily with either a 0° or a 30° mounting plate to fit the pitch of your roof. If you have an existing 1-1/2" opening for mounting, the NCR-80 1-1/2" NPT makes mounting easy and economical!

In situations where the radar cannot be mounted over the area you want to measure, BinMaster offers 10° and 8° swiveling holders with directional aiming to precisely capture the levels you need. Plus, there are a variety of flange sizes and adapters to eliminate the need for on‐site or contracted fabrication. To reduce wiring costs, BinMaster offers wireless gateways and transceivers to eliminate long spans of costly wiring.

Running to the control room every time you need a reading can be inefficient, taking a toll on your overall resources. The BinMaster BinDisc is a handy, affordable solution.  The BinDisc, which can be mounted in a convenient location for push‐button access to level data from the ground or a vehicle, simplifies setup and provides continuous, at-a-glance operational status of the sensor. 

Another helpful option for sensor data management is BinMaster's Binventory™ software. This powerful inventory management tool lets you monitor your entire operation conveniently on your LAN, WAN, or VPN. You can even integrate other types of sensors into Binventory™, so you can manage all your sensors and silos in one easy-to-use application. 

If you need anywhere, anytime access to your inventory even when you’re away from the office, add BinView to your system. The cloud-based application can be accessed from your computer, tablet or smartphone to deliver the data you need, where you need it. Like binventory, BinView is also compatible with a wide variety of BinMaster sensors as well as most sensors with 4‐20 mA output or Modbus RTU.
