SmartBob MultiBob System

Model: SBR II MB

The SmartBob MultiBob inventory management system allows two to 32 SmartBob sensors to be mounted in a single bin, tank, silo or any other vessel containing powders or bulk solid materials. The measurement data from all sensors is averaged by the advanced Binventory software to provide a single level measurement and percentage full for the bin. By taking and reporting measurements in multiple locations, there is more detailed data available to users about the material in their bin. 

Measurement data--reported in feet or meters--is very precise and repeatable. Each SmartBob sensor measures in the same location every time, detecting level changes in bins containing difficult-to-measure material. Grain bins such as 105’ or 130’ diameter or million bushel bins, as well as bins with multiple filling and emptying points, are common applications for MultiBob. MultiBob is also useful in covered storage bins, flat storage warehouses, and stockpiles where a single measurement is not adequate.

  • Any bin where the user wants more measuring points
  • Bins containing material prone to accumulate in piles
  • Large diameter bins where material tends to be uneven
  • Grain bins such as 105’ or 132’ diameter or million bushel bins
  • Bins with multiple filling and emptying points
  • Operations where more data is desired to determine inventory levels
  • Bins containing difficult-to-measure material
  • Covered storage bins and flat storage warehouses and stockpiles
  • Two to 32 SmartBob sensors on a single vessel
