BinMaster console provides convenient data

Published by
World Cement,

BinMaster has released its C-100 control console, which provides level and volume data outdoors at ground level with the push of a button. It is simple to add to a network of up to 120 SmartBob cable-based sensors mounted on bins, tanks or silos.

Refreshed with many new features in 2017, the C-100 Control Console and the C-100 MB with Modbus Communications feature a 24 VDC power supply and a NEMA 4X rating for resistance against windblown dust and rain. Consoles are often installed near load out areas for access from trucks or at ground level for worker walk-up use.

The newly updated consoles offer a wide range of measurement units including feet or cubic feet, US gallons or bushels, and tons or metric tons. Additionally, you can select the Measurement Type as product or headroom and Measurement Format in pounds, tons, or kilograms. There is a new auto add/remove feature that will rescan the network and automatically enable new sensors or disable sensors no longer found on the network.

All setup and configuration can be performed on the unit using intuitive push-button controls in either English or Spanish. To make it hassle-free, vessel configuration and user settings are stored in a non-volatile memory to protect against data loss in the event of a power failure. The C-100 can be easily added to your network if you are using Binventory or eBob software or can be used as a stand-alone console.
