Silo Hawk – the market leading real-time non-intrusive weighing solution for silos and other apparatus, using the high accuracy measuring solutions from Datum’s Bolt-On Strain Sensors range.
Easily fitting to new or existing systems, our bolt-on methodology is non-intrusive, so there’s no need for costly jack kits, load cells or silo downtime.

What is Silo Hawk?

Silo Hawk is a realtime non-intrusive load monitoring solutions for silos and other weighing apparatus. Utilising Datum’s highly accurate, low noise, temperature-compensated bolt-on sensors, Silo Hawk measures changes in weight and feeds this data securely to local data points.

The information collected by Silo Hawk can be viewed locally on standalone systems, or globally using our secure cloud-based storage platform over SSL for security.

The system is designed to support optional alarm outputs that can trigger audio or visual warnings for under or over fill situations, as well as creating alerts that can be automatically emailed directly to a configured user group.

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.

Global Silo Mapping

Silo Hawk works on a single silo at a single location through to several hundred silos at multiple locations. The secure cloud-based technology permits a remote log in to each silo or group of silos, using the search panel.

Sites and asset numbers are fully configurable and the geographical location stored to our cloud database. Site specific images can be uploaded via admin pages to tailor your system.

Individual Silo Analysis

Besides giving an overall view of your site, Silo Hawk also allows you to view each silo individually. In this screen you can manually input High and Low thresholds which will trigger an alarm or phone/email alerts, when action is required. These thresholds are completely customisable for each silo and can be adjusted at any point.

As well as silo load monitoring and weighing sensors, our optional temperature monitoring pack can record and report on real-time changes in temperature values for auditing and alarm purposes.

Site Overview

Silo Hawk allows access to live data from across your site. This information can be displayed 24/7 and offers visibility of the status of each silo via secure URL. This can be viewed on smart phones, tablets and PCs, along with larger format screens for distance viewing, or more industrial rugged local screens for simple weigh values in harsher environments.

The site can be renamed to suit your requirements, along with each silo. All data is available for download via .csv format, or by running an SQL query.
