Strain Systems Inc. now offers plant managers of single silos or silo farms the convenience of accurate, continuous weight and level measurement without the capital costs of purchasing monitoring equipment. With mysilo.info, Strain Systems installs, calibrates, and maintains its Solo or Ensemble product hardware under perpetual warranty at the customer’s plant; the customer monitors inventory on-site or remotely by logging into a Web site account that displays all his silos globally on one screen.
“This new subscription service is an extension of our ‘data anytime, anywhere’ strategy,” said Kennan Yilmaz, president of Strain Systems. “It offers customers affordable, scalable, global, and central management for silo inventories without capital equipment purchase. Now that we have added this service, customers have the option of either buying the equipment or subscribing to mysilo.info. The service comes with the convenience of our continuing help with the operation and maintenance of the system.”
Customers pay an initiation fee upon creating their mysilo.info accounts and a monthly rate per silo thereafter. The system can monitor an unlimited number of silos at multiple locations. “The mysilo.info platform is a robust, cutting-edge, industrial-grade platform for signal/data collection and reporting. It can even monitor additional plant systems, including equipment not on the silo,” said Yilmaz.
Access rights may be granted to third parties to perform certain operational tasks, and additional accounts can be created with varying access rights. An optional service will send “low material quantity” alerts to vendors for just-in-time inventory management.
