BinMaster offers numerous ways to tailor 80 GHz radar to an operation. The user can select from three different types of housings. Although the metal-jacketed is the most popular, a compact 1 ½-in. NPT housing may be an easier option to install on an existing fitting and is suited to bins up to 98 ft tall.

A durable plastic housing is a less expensive housing alternative and can be an ideal solution for bins with structure when used with a swivel mount that can be precisely aimed. There are aluminum and stainless steel housing materials available for food, chemical, or pharmaceutical operations.

BinMaster offers diverse mounting options, including a custom carbon steel ball-and-socket mount for aiming flexibility. Four-in. ANSI mounting flanges are available in 0-, 10-, 15-, 30-, and 45-degree angles. For flat roofs, a wide variety of mounting flanges in a variety of sizes allow you to order the right mount at the time you order the sensor. Mounting straps are used for aiming the plastic-housed NCR-80 over a conveyor, pile, or in a bin.

Output choices make radar easier to install and compatible with current systems or PLCs. Two-wire, four-wire, and 4-20 mA or Modbus outputs are available, as well as approvals for ordinary environments or a variety of FM or CSA approvals.
