Silo Weighing Measurement with Silo Hawk

The high accuracy, low noise, temperature compensated bolt-on sensors are used to measure changes in weight measurements that feed back to local data points. The information can be viewed locally on stand alone systems or globally using secure SSL access via our Cloud Based Storage platform. The system has optional alarm outputs, that can trigger audio/visual warnings for under or over fill, and create alerts that can be emailed directly to a known set of users.

Whether you are weighing onions, corn, barley, waste, aggregate or liquids, Silo Hawk will provide real time key data to assist your business in saving time and money.

FAQs

  • How can I measure the weight of my silo?

    There are several ways that this can be done, the simplest and easiest way which doesn’t require any major modifications to the Silo is to use the existing structure and apply the Datum Bolt-On Strain sensors to these to give simple and accurate torque measurement.  Datum Electronics offer a range of smart weighing solutions for Silo’s 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 in case of potential failure.
