SmartBob-TS1 senses bins up to 60 feet

BinMaster Level Controls has introduced a SmartBob-TS1 cable-based sensor for bins up to 60 feet (app. 20m) tall.

Manufactured in BinMaster’s Lincoln, Nebraska plant, this continuous level measurement sensor is ideal for operations with multiple, smaller storage and process bins containing powders or bulk solids.
This compact, rugged SmartBob-TS1 sensor weighs less than 10 pounds (4.5 kg) and works effectively in environments where airborne dust and filling noise can prevent other types of continuous level devices from working reliably.
The bin level data generated by the SmartBob-TS1 can be viewed from a control console mounted conveniently at the base of the bins, with eBob software loaded onto a personal computer, or via BinView Web-based software that also has the ability to send automated alerts and emails to a cell phone or iphone.
The SmartBob-TS1 is designed to reliably measure powders, granules, pellets, plastic resins, and all types of dry bulk solids in smaller bins, tanks and silos and is popular with poultry and swine operations, feed mills and farms, seed storage facilities, and the plastics manufacturing industry.
It offers diverse communications options including convenient 4 to 20 mA outputs, RS-485 wired network capabilities, or wireless communications via an optional built-in 900 MHz wireless modem.
“The SmartBob-TS1 sensor makes it very affordable for many types of operations to improve safety while better controlling their inventory management,” stated BinMaster vice president of sales Todd Peterson. “A BinMaster SmartBob system offers a wide assortment of communications options plus simple ways to get bin level data where you need it, when you need it .”
