3D Multiple-Scanner System

Model: MVL

In very large bins, tanks or silos, the BinMaster MVL 3D multiple-scanner system is the answer for precise inventory management. The MVL system integrates multiple-point measurement data from two or more 3DLevelScanners (aka 3D Solids Scanners) to cover a very wide surface area which makes it able to estimate inventory volume with greater accuracy than previously available from any level measurement device. Using advanced processing and software, the MVL displays a visual representation of the material surface showing high and low points in the bin such as cone up, cone down, sidewall buildup or bridging.
