Battery-powered laser sensors for silo applications

BinMaster has introduced battery-powered level sensors that mount on silos without the complexity or expense of wiring. A single point laser installs through a 1.5” NPT connection on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible.

Powered by a replaceable lithium battery, the model SPL-200 measures solids in silos up to 98 ft tall in low or no-dust environments.

The model FVL-200 measures livestock feed in silos up to 35 ft tall.

Both models take interval readings from once per hour to once a day with a battery life of three to five years.

The laser utilizes an integrated wireless LoRa long range transceiver to send data to a LoRa modem.

Data measurements from the SPL-200 are transmitted to the BinView web application or Binventory software for easy access from your phone, tablet, or desktop PC, the company says.

Data from the FVL-200 is used exclusively with the FeedView application.
