MultiBob sensor system automates bin level management

MultiBob sensor system automates bin level management


BinMaster’s MultiBob inventory management system automatically monitors bin levels based on readings from up to 32 SmartBob sensors strategically placed in a bin, tank, silo or flat storage warehouse. Levels are reported via eBob software, which calculates the average level or headroom and estimated percentage full. Software can be set to measure materials at scheduled time intervals or on demand.


Large-diameter bins, bins containing materials that tend to pile up, as well as bins with multiple filling and emptying points are common applications for MultiBob, according to BinMaster. Depending on the number and locations where SmartBob sensors are mounted, users can determine conditions such as cone up or cone down, whether there are high and low spots in the bin and which filling or emptying points they want to target in multiple-fill, multiple-discharge-point bins.


Two sensor options are available. The SmartBob2 sensor lists for $1,380. The SmartBob-TS1 sensor lists for $745. The eBob reporting software lists for $1,380. For more information, visit
