BinMaster Has New Level Sensor for Bins and Silos

SmartBob TS1 is designed specifically for dusty environments and can measure 60 feet.

Published on: Nov 14, 2011

BinMaster Level Controls has a newly designed weight and cable "bob" style SmartBob TS1 continuous level sensor with sealed electronics aimed at long life in extremely dusty conditions.

The TS1 can be used in bins, tanks or silos up to 60-feet tall in any operation that needs to monitor bulk solids in solids or powders. With the use of a sphere float bob, the TS1 also can be used in a variety of liquid and slurry operations.

The machine offers a variety of communication options including an optional built-in 900 MHz wireless modem, ZigBee compatibility, RS-485 communications, and 4-20 mA output to a programmable logic controller or HMI (human machine interface.) Individual bin measurements can be sent the eBob PC software or a control console where measurements can be displayed as distance to product, height of product, and percent full.

The new SmartBob-TS1 continuous level sensor with sealed electronics is BinMasters newest weight and cable "bob" for use in dusty conditions.
