Monitoring System Measures Liquids
BinMaster Level Controls has integrated liquid level measurement technology into its BinView web-based monitoring solution for bins, tanks and silos. The company’s SmartSonic, SmartWave and SmartBob sensors can now be integrated in a single network enabling users to monitor both liquid and solids tanks over the Internet or on their SmartPhone.
BinMaster’s SmartSonic ultrasonic and SmartWave radar measurement sensors offer non-contact, continuous level measurement in most types of liquids including water, oils, municipal waste, and chemicals such as liquid fertilizer. SmartSonic ultrasonic can measure the level in liquid tanks up to 60 feet tall, while SmartWave radar can handle tanks up to 100 feet tall.
Sensors are mounted on tanks or bins, a wireless or wired data communications network, a gateway to provide connectivity to a personal computer or IP network, and data collection software that allows authorized individuals to view data over an Internet connection. Automated alerts immediately can send email and cell phone messages when bin conditions meet user-defined thresholds.
Site mapping capabilities include a built-in visual mapping feature that shows vessel types, locations and levels to streamline operations and optimize delivery, filling and emptying schedules. As Internet data security is critical, BinView features end-to-end encryption and authentication to ensure data is safe and confidential from the bin to the corporate office.
