Continuous Level

Non-Contact Radar

BinMaster’s 80 GHz non-contact radar excels in powders and solids. It can be used in vessels up to 393 feet tall with a measuring accuracy of 0.2 inches. Its narrow 4° beam angle ensures precise aiming to avoid the flow stream, internal structure, or sidewall buildup. NCR-80 is ideal for continuous level measurement in tall and narrow vessels where there is excessive noise or dust.


The BinMaster 3DLevelScanner provides continuous, non-contact level measurement using dust-penetrating technology to provide unsurpassed bin volume accuracy. Unlike single point devices, it measures multiple points to detect irregular material surfaces, cone up/down conditions, or sidewall buildup. Advanced acoustics-based technology is proven to perform in powders and bulk solids contained in tanks, silos, domes, warehouses, open bins, and piles.


A SmartBob sensor works like an automated tape measure, but eliminates the need for climbing bins to take manual measurements to improve safety and efficiency with timely inventory data. Data is sent to a console, eBob Software, or via BinCom to BinView in the cloud. SmartBob is a proven, highly reliable and accurate inventory management system for monitoring powders, bulk solids, or submersed solids in one bin or an entire network of bins, tanks or silos.

Guided Wave Radar

The BinMaster GWR-1000 level sensor measures liquids, powders and bulk solids with a dielectric constant greater than 2.1 in vessels up to 78’ tall. It utilizes time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance, level and volume of material contained in bins, tanks or silos. GWR is immune to dust, humidity, temperature, pressure, and bulk density changes as well as noise present when filling or emptying the vessel.


Laser level sensors are a non-contact technology that measures in a very narrow beam, making it ideal for use in very narrow vessels. It may also be a good alternative for vessels where structure may interfere with the operation of the sensor. The laser measures a single point with very high accuracy and a very fast response rate. It can be used in powders and solids of most any dielectric and in opaque liquids.


BinMaster’s ultrasonic sensors provide continuous, non-contact level measurement in bins, tanks and silos. They can also detect material on conveyors. The SmartSonic ultrasonic transmitter features a high efficiency, narrow beam design that eliminates unwanted echoes and enhance operation in difficult applications. SmartSonic comes in a variety of models with a measuring range of 4 inches up to 90 feet.
