Measuring Software Supports Non-Linear Vessels
BinMaster Level Controls has released a new eBob software feature for SmartBob2 and SmartBob-TS1 sensors, which supports level measurement for non-linear vessels such as bins with cone bottoms, horizontal tanks and mushroom-shaped tanks.
With the new feature, height-to-volume or weight data can be input into a strapping table, allowing the software to account for bin shapes or material properties such as non-linear vessels or compaction of material in the bin when generating measurement data.
As few as two entries (full and empty), or a limitless number of entries can be made into the strapping table based on available data. Custom vessel configurations also can be selected through a screen that asks users to provide height and volume or weight parameters.
