Sensors & Software to Make Bin Inventory Safer and Easier


Wouldn’t inventory be easier if bin walls were transparent? Unfortunately, they are not. Since you don’t have Superman’s x-ray vision, you need another way to measure grain in bins. So how do you know how much inventory you have without climbing bins? You call us. For almost 60 years, BinMaster has been helping the grain industry monitor bin levels. We provide the technology that keeps your people safe and keeps them from climbing bins. Proven level indicators alert where bins are full. Continuous level sensors like SmartBobs, 3DLevelScanners, and 80 GHz non-contact radar report inventory in real time. User-friendly software from our BinCloud family of solutions gives you a simple, graphical view of your inventory. BinMaster helps you measure and monitor inventory using the best practices and latest technology.

  • NCR-80 Non-Contact Radar Level Sensor
    This 80 GHz non-contact radar provides superior continuous level measurement even in extremely dusty powders and bulk solids....

  • The BinMaster NCR-80 is a non-contact radar level sensor designed for superior performance in extremely dusty powders and bulk solids. Its powerful 80 GHz frequency focused in a narrow 4° beam angle with a measuring range up to 393 feet and accuracy within 0.2 inches means it excels in tall and narrow vessels. The NCR-80 is offered with a 10°swiveling, stainless steel flange for precise targeting; a lightweight plastic antenna with an 8° swiveling flange or a mounting strap for adjustable targeting; or a 1-1/2" NPT mounting option for use in an existing process connection. The NCR-80 is resistant to interference, while its advanced filters ensure rapid signal processing and an update rate of less than one second.
  • MAXIMA+ Fail-Safe Rotary Level Indicator
    The MAXIMA+ is BinMaster’s most advanced rotary level indicator featuring a complete fail-safe system that alerts to the loss of power, failure of the motor, or failure of the electronics....

  • BinMaster’s most advanced rotary level indicator features a complete fail-safe system that alerts to the loss of power, failure of the motor, or failure of the electronics – allowing it to be used for process control. Appropriate for a wide variety of bulk solids including powders, pellets, or granular materials, the MAXIMA+ alerts the user to bin status via an audible horn or light wired to the unit. Notification occurs when the paddle stops rotating and is in a covered condition; it alerts again when the paddle begins to rotate as the bin is emptied and the paddle is uncovered. The MAXIMA+ can be mounted on either the side of the bin or at the top of a bin using a shaft extension. To prolong motor life and to optimize energy costs, the motor of the MAXIMA+ will “de-energize” once the shaft stops turning when material comes into contact with the paddle. BinMaster offers a variety of stainless steel and polyethylene paddles in single and three-vane designs to accommodate a wide range of industries and applications.
