Products BinMaster measurement silos solids

Mount and power level sensors on silos without the complexity or expense of wiring, says BinMaster, with the model SPL-100 single point laser. Units are said to install quickly through a 1.5 or 2 in. NPT connection on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible.

Powered by a replaceable Lithium battery, the BinMaster device measures solids in silos up to 98 ft tall in low or no-dust environments.

It takes 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 are transmitted to the BinView web application or Binventory software for easy access from your phone, tablet, or desktop PC.
