There are several ways that this can be done, the simplest and easiest way which doesn’t require any major modifications to the silo, hopper or weighing bin is to use the existing structure and apply the Datum Bolt-On Strain sensors to give simple and accurate torque measurement. Datum Electronics offer a range of smart weighing solutions for silos giving customers real time accurate information which can include visuals of load status and alarms for when Silo levels are low. These can also be used in a preventative state as the Bolt-On Sensors will look at the strain levels on the silos, hoppers or bins in case of potential failure.
