Level sensor offers simple interface

Jan. 26, 2023
BinMaster's SmartBob AO is operated with a push button, and can work in dusty environments without disrupting measurements.

SmartBob BinMaster’s well-established SmartBob family of level sensors monitor the level of pellets, flakes, powders and resin colorants at predetermined levels within large storage vessels. SmartBob sensors can be used with BinMaster’s ResinView, a cloud-based subscription program that can provide real-time inventory levels and deliver it to the company’s free BinCloud platform. 

What’s new? BinMaster’s SmartBob AO (analog output). It has a push-button user interface that makes it simple for users to configure bin parameters and assign the functionality of the relays. 

Benefits Simplicity. No external operator interface displays or PC-based software is required. Once they are set, bin parameters are kept in the SmartBob AO’s non-volatile memory. SmartBob AO is simple, rugged and can operate in dusty environments without disrupting measurements. It works in ambient temperatures from -40 degrees Fahrenheit to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.
