BinMaster® SmartBob-TS1 measures at continuous level

14-05-2009 | |

The SmartBob-TS1 sensor is a cable-based, continuous level measurement sensor for bins up to 40 feet tall. The compact, rugged SmartBob-TS1 weighs less than 10 pounds and is immune to airborne dust and filling noise that frequently prevent other continuous level devices from working reliably.

Compatible with eBob software and consoles from BinMaster’s SmartBob inventory tracking system, the SmartBob-TS1 is designed to reliably measure powders, granules, pellets, plastic resins, and dry bulk solids as well as liquids in smaller bins, tanks and silos.

The SmartBob-TS1 offers convenient 4 to 20 mA outputs and the versatility of RS-485 or wireless communications via an optional built-in 900 MHz wireless modem. Measurements can be read remotely from a centralized SmartBob control console or from a PC using eBob software. Highly scaleable, both SmartBob2 and SmartBob-TS1 sensors can be combined in one network to accommodate bins both small and large (up to 180 foot tall) bins, allowing for one up to 120 bins to be configured within a single SmartBob network.

SmartBob-TS1 can be mounted on flat or angled roofs up to 40° using a mounting flange specially designed for steep roofs often found on smaller bins used for feeding operations or process manufacturing. Accessories include a variety of mounting flanges to accommodate from 0° and 40° roof angles, pipe extensions to provide cable protection, a selection of probes suitable for a variety of materials, and a gearbox motor heater for when operating temperatures fall below 32°.
