Bin Monitoring

BinMaster Level Controls has teamed up with Sprint on its BinView machine-to-machine, cloud-based inventory management solution that allows businesses to monitor inventory in their bins, tanks and silos over the Internet. The Web-based system provides bin level information on demand, combining BinMaster SmartBob level sensors and the Sprint wireless networks to make the data easily available online. A popular feature is to send automated level alerts to a cell phone or via email any time a bin level reaches a predetermined high or low level. For instance, a user can set a high level alert in a bin to ensure it is not overfilled. Some common users of BinView include aggregate and mining operations, and cement batch plants.
