SmartBob is a proven, highly reliable and accurate inventory management system for monitoring powders and bulk solids for one or an entire network of bins, tanks and silos.
A SmartBob sensor works like an automated tape measure, but eliminates the need for climbing bins to take manual measurements, which keeps employees safe and your operation efficient with timely inventory data.
The weight and cable-based rugged SmartBob2 sensor is for bins up to 180' tall, while the SmartBob-TS1 is for bins up to 60' tall. Mounted on the top of the bin, a weighted cable drops to the material surface to take a precise measurement and then sends measurement data to a console, eBob PC-based software or directly to a PLC.
To get your information from the Internet, there's the newest release of BinView that enables data access and automated alerts to your phone, tablet or email on your PC.
Options include models for high or super-high temperatures, measuring submersed solids, and wireless communications.
