Battery-Powered Level Sensor Uses Single Point Laser

Level sensors eliminate climbing silos, making the workplace safer and saving time.

The Battery-Powered Level Sensor from BinMaster uses a single point laser to measure dry bulk materials stored in silos without the complexity or expense of wiring.

The wireless level sensor is easy to mount on a silo roof, easy to power using replaceable batteries, and utilizes a wireless long-range transceiver to transmit measurement data up to one-mile line-of-site. 

Level sensors eliminate climbing silos, making the workplace safer and saving time. 

The SPL-200 model measures distances up to 98 feet and is used in low dust pellets and granules. 

The FVL-200 is specifically for measuring livestock feed in silos up to 35 feet tall. 

When used for inventory monitoring, these level sensors take interval readings once an hour with a battery life of three to five years. 

Additional features include:  

  • The sensor installs through a one-and-a-half inch NPT connection.
  • A swiveling mounting plate allows the sensor to be pointed at the optimal measuring location.
  • Once installed, the sensor is turned on and connected to BinView or FeedView cloud-based software.
  • Inventory is accessed via the internet from a phone, tablet, or PC.
  • A detailed view shows the percentage silos are filled and estimates the volume of material inside each vessel.
  • Alarms are set to alert to low and high levels via a text or email.
  • Multiple silos can be viewed on a single screen for a quick overview and reports can be easily generated.

Battery-powered sensors can save operations money on wiring and installation costs. When used with inventory management software, they save time and prevent material shortages.
