Continuous level sensor
February 6, 2012
BinMaster Level Controls’ newly designed weight-and-cable SmartBob-TS1 continuous level sensor has a sealed electronics compartment to prevent the ingress of dust into the electronics cavity of the sensor. The device provides accurate and reliable measurements in applications where the sensor is used to measure powders or granular materials in the presence of high levels of dust. The instrument can be used in bins, tanks or silos up to 60 ft. tall in any type of operation that needs to monitor inventories of bulk solids or powders. With the use of a sphere-float bob, the sensor is available in a variety of communication options including a built-in 900 MHz wireless modem, ZigBee, RS-485 and 4-20 mA output.
