Battery-Powered Laser for Silos

BinMaster’s level sensors can be mounted and powered on silos without the complexity or cost of wiring. This single point laser can be quickly set up by using a 1.5″ NPT connection on silos or in remote locations where it is not possible to perform inventory tracking.

The SPL-200 level sensor from BinMaster is driven by a replaceable lithium battery and can measure solids in silos with a height of up to 98 feet in no-dust or low-dust settings.

BinMaster’s FVL-200 level sensor measures livestock feed in silos with a height of up to 35 feet. With a battery life of three to five years, the two models capture interval readings from once in an hour to once in a day. The laser makes use of a built-in wireless LoRa long-range transceiver for transmission of data to a LoRa modem.

The SPL-200 level sensor’s data measurements are sent to the Binventory software or BinView web application for easy access from users’ phone, desktop PC, or tablet. Data from the FVL-200 model is used solely with the FeedView application.
