The new BinMaster RL level sensor is designed to provide reliable bin level data in challenging environments where dust levels are extremely high. The non-contact, continuous level sensor works in powders and solid materials of all types, including low dielectric materials that, until now, have been largely incompatible with non-contact devices. The acoustics-based BinMaster RL features a self-cleaning, non-stick surface that does not require routine maintenance or air purge for cleaning. This eliminates manual cleaning of the sensor and frequent climbing of bins, which is a safety hazard. It uses acoustics-based technology at low frequencies, which allows it to penetrate dust. The acoustic waves won’t reflect off heavy dust or the material surface, which can cause erratic or inaccurate measurements.
