“Bin Full” Sensors Work Wet Or Dry
Moore Automation’s MA-135 proximity sensor is a waterproof sensor that can be installed on any bin or storage tank to set off an alarm when material reaches its level. It requires a 1-in. hole to be drilled for the sensor and plate mount.
“It comes with everything needed,” says Moore. “It even has a 110-volt cord tail that you can plug into an extension cord if you want to use it somewhere temporarily for the season.”
When installed on the exterior of a tank or bin, an alarm light can be placed nearby or in another area. The sensor box contains a relay switch to sound a horn, activate a light, or turn machinery on or off depending on how it’s set up.
“It has no moving parts, plus it’s not affected by the cold or dust. Any bulk material just needs to come close for it to work. It senses the product, activates and does what it’s programmed to do.”
The MA-135 sensor can be used on dry products like grain, sawdust, or sand. Since it’s completely watertight, it can also be used on any liquid.
The units are produced in Trimont, Minn., and shipped through 350 nationwide dealers to operations as diverse as hog farms and sawdust mills.
Individual sensors sell for $199 plus S&H.
