BinMaster: What Makes 3D Level Measurement Different?

Measuring material levels in silos and converting levels to inventory is a tall task. When material piles unevenly, calculating accurate volume measurement is difficult. According to BinMaster, their 3DLevelScanner is the only level sensor that measures more than one point with a single sensor. Continue reading BinMaster: What Makes 3D Level Measurement Different?

BinMaster: Capacitance Probes – Level Sensors that answer your probing questions

Lincoln (NE), United States – BinMaster‘s capacitance probes are an affordable, flexible soluton for level detection in bins, tanks and silos. Capacitance probes detect the presence or absence of material in contact with the probe by sensing minute changes (as low as 0.5 pF) in capacitance caused by the difference in the dielectric constant of the material versus the air.
