BinMaster unveiled a solution for automatically estimating inventory in a covered storage structure. The solution deploys the company’s 3DLevelScanner acoustic sensor to detect, map and measure levels of piled materials. Then BinMaster’s MultiVision software categorizes the piled material by virtual section. Minimum, maximum, and average levels per section can be calculated for up to 99 unique sections. Data is arranged into a visual representation of the topography of the piled materials. Identifying high and low sections allows for automating process control and managing the filling or extraction of materials through cone-shaped hoppers in the bottom of the bunker or warehouse, BinMaster reported. In proven installations, up to 20 3DLevelScanners have been mounted in the upper structure of the roof.
