For low cost vessel and silo weight display, you can’t beat the value of SiloWeigh Basic.  Designed for one to three farm feed bins and similar applications where a very basic silo weight 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.

Silo Capacity and stress: All silo capacities can be measured.  The limitation is the stress in the support structure.  Acceptable stress is in the range 1000 to 15,000 lb per square inch.
Vessel support structure, material type: All types of steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
Number of sensors: Up to 4 sensors can be powered from each SiloWeigh indicator.
Display type: Large 0.6″ green LED digits.
Display accuracy and resolution: 50,000 counts, accuracy of display better than 0.01%.
Overall system accuracy: Dependent on structure being measured.  Typically ±2% of full scale value.
Serial RS232 port: Bidirectional, connects to most printers or computers.
Power: 9 VDC, 110-250V AC adapter, 10 W max.
Temperature range: Sensors: -40 to +70°C (-40 to +160°F).  Display: -10-40°C (14-104°F).
