Measuring Multiple Material Surface Points with the 3DLS M and MV 3D Level Sensor

Also known as a 3D Solids Scanner, BinMaster's 3DLevelScanner is the only level sensor which measures multiple points on a material's surface to give continuous, non-contact inventory volume measurement that accounts for irregular material topography.

This advanced acoustics-based technology is proven to perform in powders and bulk solids, which are contained in warehouses, silos, bins, domes, open bunkers and piles. Unique 3D mapping capabilities supply a visual representation of bin contents, detecting cone up or down and sidewall buildup.


  • Cement and aggregates
  • Grain, feed, seed and food processing
  • Powders, pellets, granulars and most other bulk solids
  • Tanks, bins and silos where the material surface has uneven topography
  • Metals and Mining
  • Ethanol, bioenergy and power plants
  • Paper, pulp and wood pellets
  • Chemical processing and plastics manufacturing 


  • Measuring range of up to 200 feet
  • Non-contact, continuous measurement
  • Supplies maximum, minimum and average distances
  • Performs in extreme levels of dust
  • Measures uneven powder or solid material surfaces
  • Detects cone up, cone down and sidewall buildup
  • Self-cleaning with minimal maintenance
  • Communications include 4-20/HART, Modbus RTU, TCP/IP and RS-485
  • Calculates highly accurate bin volume
