Silo inventory control console

The C-100 mounts at a convenient location in the plant or loadout areas. Employees walk or drive up to retrieve silo level data from the console, whose rugged housing allows indoor or outdoor mounting. The local display eliminates the need to visit a control room or PLC and complements the company’s BinView or Binventory inventory management software.

The C-100 offers displays measurements as feet or cubic feet, and tons, metric tons or kilograms. Measurements can be output as height of material or distance to product (headroom). Configuration uses intuitive push-button controls in English or Spanish. User settings are stored in a non-volatile memory to protect against data loss in the event of power failure. All models feature a 24 VDC power supply and a NEMA 4X enclosure rating for resistance to dust and rain.

The C-100-SB model is used with SmartBob level sensors, the C-100-MB with SmartBob sensors requiring a Modbus output. The C-100-R is compatible with non-contact radar, guided wave radar, and SmartSonic ultrasonic level sensors. — BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb., www.binmaster.com
