SILOWEIGH Basic – vessel weighing with weight indicator

For low cost vessel and silo weight display, you can’t beat the value of SiloWeigh Basic.  Designed for farm feed bins and similar applications where a very basic display is adequate.  SiloWeigh Basic uses L-Strain sensors with a simple weight indicator to show the current weight of the vessel contents, without all the extra features.
SiloWeigh Basic Specification.
Most silos on legs and skirted silos use the L-Strain silo weight sensor which is fully temperature compensated and gives superior results on steel, stainless and aluminum silos.
The L-Strain silo weight sensor compensates for the expansion of the underlying metal, making it extremely stable on steel legs and skirts as well as being applicable to aluminum and stainless steel silos.
Can SiloWeigh be installed on any type of silo leg? Is there any limit to the silo size or capacity? Will it wear out in a few years? How easy is SiloWeigh to install? This page answers these questions and others.
SiloWeigh vessel inventory systems are self-install kits. You can do it yourself from scratch, and we provide the critical tools. Read on and see how simple it really is, or ask for our installation training presentation. If you wish, we can do it all for you; just call us.

Lowest cost for one to three vessels, same great sensors

SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, feed bin, tank or storage vessel. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual silo weight to give a true picture of the amount on hand.  And it costs less than a high-end level sensor.  How it connects and operates . . . Read more
  • Large, easy to read 0.6 inch green LED display.
  • Serial RS232 bidirectional communication.
  • Powers four L-Strain sensors or load cells.  Not applicable to level or liquid sensors.
  • Uses the same L-Strain sensor kits as SiloWeigh II Pro and SiloWeigh.Net, proven accurate to 1% in those applications that lack the large weather swings that need our special Weather Filter.  That’s 10 times better than the best level sensors.
  • Mount the legs on Load Cells for higher accuracy.
  • All-weather. Sensors, wiring and junction boxes meet NEMA-4, IP66.  You can set up the dust and spashproof industrial weight indicator in a convenient indoor location.
  • Connect to computer, remote display or printer.
  • Tare button resets weight before a delivery.  Because of this, you have the ability to measure the delivery weight.
  • Kit includes 100 m (328 ft) indicator cable.
  • For 4 silos and more, SiloWeigh II or SiloWeigh.Net is the best value.  In addition, you get all the extra features, such as our stabilizing Weather Filter, which improves overall accuracy. Also digital Alarm Outputs, Internet and remote computer/phone/tablet displays, text/email alerts and lots more.
General purpose weight indicator used in CraneWeigh and SiloWeigh Basic

All systems:

  • Install and calibrate the silo weight system yourself.  We deliver a kit with complete instructions. All necessary cables are provided and are color coded.
  • Calibration is straightforward, using the weighed deliveries as reference.
  • Alternatively, we have trained installation experts at various US and Canadian locations – call us for details.
