SILOWEIGH II Pro – vessel weighing with touch screen interface

SiloWeigh II Pro pairs the L-Strain sensors with a touch-screen display, to measure silo level by weight, with capacity for 6 vessels displayed as bar-graphs or a trend-graph of each individual vessel.  A special display shows weights of past deliveries.

The accurate silo level and inventory system for bins, tanks and storage vessels that you can install yourself

SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, feed bin, tank or storage vessel. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual weight of the vessel and contents to give a true picture of the amount on hand – and it costs less than a high-end level sensor.

Never run out of cement again

Visual warning at Reorder and Low silo level, plus audible warning if you need it, to prevent loss of production and missed deliveries . . . More features
  • Displays one to six vessels on standard 3.5″ (102mm) or 5.7″ (145mm) display screens.
  • SiloWeigh’s L-Strain sensors are temperature compensated; they cancel the effects of the structure’s expansion with temperature while measuring the compression due to load.  Typical accuracy ±1 to 2% of full scale when all four legs are gauged.
  • Mount the legs on Load Cells for higher accuracy (0.1%) (see Applications page).
  • All-weather. Sensors, wiring and junction boxes meet NEMA-4, IP66 and you can set up the dust and spashproof industrial touch screen display system in a convenient indoor location.
  • Radio connection when cable cannot be run.
  • No moving parts for long life and reliability.

SiloWeigh II records the silo level and inventory of up to 6 vessels, detecting the fill amount

Eliminate the risk of overfilling

Blown filters and the ensuing environmental hazards are a thing of the past, and you can warn when filters need changing . . . More Touch Screen and other features
  • For one vessel only, SiloWeigh Basic is the budget choice if you don’t need SiloWeigh II Pro’s features.
  • For more than 6 vessels, consider SiloWeigh.Net, handles up to 32 vessels on one Internet display.
  • Silo level display changes color as alarm points are passed, to emphasize alarm condition.
  • Symbols show level at a glance, % full and actual weight or volume in your choice of units (tons, gal. etc.).
  • Accepts analog level sensors in place of weight sensors
  • Special calculation handles divided silos and ‘shared-frame’ vessels by measuring each leg separately.  No other manufacturer offers this option, which preserves the full accuracy of weight measurement.
  • Add your liquid tanks, level, temperature or moisture sensors for more value.

The silo level is shown by a bar-graph and you can touch this to see a trend graph that measures deliveries

Eliminate delivery shortages

Ability to check every delivery, even weeks ago, and measure delivery amounts against the weight ticket puts you in command of the situation . . . More Trend Graph and related features
  • Trend graph of readings (see picture below) is zoomable to any time period and calculates delivery amounts.
  • Scroll forward or backward in time to see any part; no limit.
  • Check hourly and daily usage, shown directly on display.
  • Advanced predictive filter eliminates errors caused by rapid weather changes while responding instantly to fast fills and discharges.  No other manufacturer offers even a simple weather filter, while without it you can expect variations of 20% to 50% lasting several hours.
  • Digital connection to transmitters at each vessel, connected by single cable to make installation faster.
The silo level trend graph allows you to touch two points to measure the amount added or used

Touch screen operator interface

Use of a touch screen as the operator interface gives many advantages, and at a lower overall cost for 3 or more vessels . . . Physical and remote viewing Features
  • Dust and splashproof NEMA-4 (IP65) plastic wall-mount cabinet.
  • CE and UL/CUL certified.
  • Programmable digital I/O allows connection to horns, lights etc. and analog outputs connect to control systems.
  • Optional memory stick records all values, transferable to Excel sheets for fill calculations etc.
  • All 4 sensors are connected separately; diagnostic display allows a bad sensor to be bypassed until a replacement can be fitted.

SiloWeigh II Pro's cabinet and touch screen are dust and splashproof for use in rough environments
