Level monitoring and visualisation
Level monitoring and visualization bring the levels to where the material planner, plant operator or supplier needs them. In the production area, in the office on the PC, on the road, on the cell phone or at external locations. The requirements range from simple digital displays to web server visualizations that also network silo systems at different company locations.
Central access to silo levels saves time and money in material procurement. Limit indicator signals must be evaluated in order to control pinch valves in the filling lines or alarm modules such as horns and flashing lights.
Visualization systems can also send e-mails that report a specific fill level, material requirement, or plant malfunction. Thus, systems for fill level indication, monitoring and visualization have important tasks to fulfill in order to enable smooth inventory control. This applies to both silo filling and material removal.
