Mount and power level sensors on silos without the complexity or expense of wiring. This single point laser installs quickly through a 1.5” NPT connection on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible. Powered by a replaceable Lithium battery, the SPL-200 measures solids in silos up to 98 feet tall in low or no-dust environments. The FVL-200 measures livestock feed in silos up to 35 feet tall. Both models take interval readings from once per hour to once a day with a battery life of three to five years. The laser utilizes an integrated wireless LoRa long range transceiver to send data to a LoRa modem. Data measurements from the SPL-200 are transmitted to the BinView web application or Binventory software for easy access from your phone, tablet, or desktop PC. Data from the FVL-200 is used exclusively with the FeedView application.
