Fill Level of Dry Material in a Hopper

Fill Level of Dry Material in a Hopper Image

Application: Monitoring level of dry material

Challenges: Uneven and shifting surface

Solution: LT3 Series Laser Distance Measurement Sensor

Benefits: Senses irregular surfaces

To accurately determine the level of dry bulk material in a bin hopper, despite the material's uneven surface

Description

An L-GAGE LT3 laser distance-gauging sensor, mounted above the hopper, measures the distance to the material's irregular surface, enabling a PLC to calculate the bin’s fill level.
