Acoustic Level Sensor

Model: RL

Highly reliable even in extreme dust, the BinMaster RL level sensor is a non-contact level sensor that works in powders and solid materials of all types--including very low dielectric materials. The BinMaster RL measures a single point in the bin using acoustics-based technology to provide continuous level measurement in a self-cleaning, low maintenance sensor.
