BinMaster SPL-100 Laser Level Sensor Allows Remote Inventory Monitoring
The SPL-100 battery-powered single point laser allows use of level sensors on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible. The SPL-100 is powered by a lithium battery, taking interval readings from once an hour to once a day, with a projected battery life of three to five years. It measures low and no-dust solids contained in bins, tanks or silos up to 98 feet tall.
The SPL-100 was designed for fast and easy setup. Users install the sensor, power and aim the laser, and connect to the cloud. LoRa long-range communications send measurements from the SPL-100 to the LG-100 wireless gateway. The LG-100 provides a cellular or ethernet connection to the BinView web application or Binventory LAN-based software for inventory data access from phone, tablet or desktop computer.
Fixed mounting plates are available in angles of 0°, 5°, 10° or 30° as well as an adjustable swivel mount that allows angle alteration from 0° to 45° to aim the laser. The SPL-100 reports on remaining battery life to ensure users have current readings. Battery replacement is as easy as a flashlight, according to the company. Programmable high and low-level alerts are sent via email or text so users stay informed about inventory levels.
