The SmartBob2 remote is the core component of a proven, reliable level measurement system using cable-based sensoring technology. When combined with its powerful Windows-based eBob software program and remote push-button control consoles, SmartBob2 offers the strongest and smartest cable-based inventory measurement system on the market today – with the ability to manage from one up to 128 bins of heights up to 180 feet.
The SmartBob-TS1 sensor is an economical and compact inventory tracking system that has been designed to measure solids, powders, liquids or slurries in smaller bins, tanks and silos. The compact, yet rugged design can be mounted on angled or flat roofs and can be used in vessels up to 40 feet tall. Accessories include a variety of mounting flanges to accommodate from 0° and 40° roof angles, pipe extensions to provide cable protection, a selection of probes suitable for a variety of materials, and a gearbox motor heater for when operating temperatures fall below 32°.
BinMaster’s MultiBob system is an economical solution that measures multiple points by mounting two to 32 SmartBob sensors in a single bin and using eBob software to calculate an average level. The data can indicate cone up or cone down conditions and high and low spots in the bin. It is ideal for large diameter bins and bins that have uneven material topography due to multiple filling and emptying sites or material piling up in the bin. Strapping tables can also be added to the bin parameters in the eBob software to increase accuracy in cone-bottomed or non-linear vessels or to account for material compaction
The 3DLevelScanner uses non-contact, dust penetrating technology to create a visual map of the material surface in storage and process bins. It measures the material surface at multiple points to accurately calculate the volume and mass, even in conditions where the material surface is highly irregular. The 3DLevelScanner operates at extremely low frequencies, allowing it to penetrate through high moisture and dust with very little loss of signal power. The processor obtains signals based upon the estimated times of arrival and direction of received echoes, and generates a 3-dimensional image of the surface that can be displayed on a remote screen. Whereas most technologies measure with a single point time-of-flight, the 3DLevelScanner uses both time-of-flight and direction using three independent channels to transmit and receive which enables it to make highly accurate measurements.
The 3DLevelScanner can work in small to very large bins and can measure up to 200’ tall and 150’ wide. It is versatile and can accommodate a wide variety of vessels or containers including open bins, bulk storage rooms and warehouses.
The BinMaster RL is designed to provide highly reliable level data in challenging environments where dust levels are extremely high. The non-contact, continuous level sensor works in powders and solid materials of all types. Unlike some types of non-contact level sensors, the BinMaster RL can be used in very low dielectric materials which historically have not been compatible with non-contact devices. Although the RL looks just like the S, M and MV 3DLevelScanner, it is different because the purpose of the RL is level data only. It performs better in dust compared to other technologies, such as ultrasonic. It uses acoustics-based technology at very low frequencies, which allows it to penetrate dust. Another unique quality ...
The BinMaster GWR-1000 level sensor measures powders, bulk solids and liquids in vessels up to 78’ tall. It provides highly accurate, continuous level measurement utilizing time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance, level and volume of material contained in bins, tanks and silos. It performs reliably and is immune to dust, humidity, temperature, pressure and bulk density changes as well as noise that might be present when filling or emptying the vessel.
Using proven technology, the GWR-1000 features advanced two-wire TDR measurement technology with a low dead band (hysteresis) and accuracy of ± 0.2 inches (5 mm). The measurement data is converted to a 4-20 mA output with HART communication and can be viewed via a graphical display on the device or an optional local display using the SAP-300 plug-in display unit. BinMaster offers standard models for process temperatures from -22°F to 195°F (-30°C to 90°C) and high temperature models for temperature extremes from -22°F to 392°F (-30°C to 200°C). An 8 mm cable with a 1.5” NPT is offered for use in liquids and heavier bulk solid materials and a 4 mm cable with a 1” NPT can be used in lighter powders and bulk solids.
The SmartSonic is designed for continuous non-contact level measuring and monitoring of tanks, bins, and silos. Its transmitter features high efficiency, narrow beam design technology using a wide frequency bandwidth to enhance operation in difficult applications. It is designed to perform particularly well in harsh environments where vessel temperatures vary, using a temperature sensor to automatically compensate for temperature changes, ensuring consistent accuracy of readings. The unit's transducer uses a built-in, self-cleaning operation to eliminate buildup or condensation.

SmartWave is a very accurate, low-noise pulse radar transmitter for distances up to 100 feet. It is designed to allow for the tracking of any material from the tip of the rod antenna to the bottom of the tank, regardless of the tank shape or environmental conditions. It is highly sensitive and reliable over time; any build up on the rod antenna does not deteriorate the performance of the radar probe. Its unique radar design eliminates problems when a target is close to the antenna, while also providing for optimal performance and accurate measurements. It offers simple two-point, push-button calibration making it appropriate for a range of materials, having been proven in a variety of powder and bulk solid application and can also be used for other critical non-contact applications for food, beverages or chemicals. The SmartWave transmitter also features a low dialectic mode setting, which allows it to work with dielectrics around two and higher. SmartWave can accommodate output of a 4 to 20 mA signal and offers optional RS-232 or RS-485 connections, allowing it to be networked to other devices.
