The multi-functional HMI2 controls
level sensor operations, displays measured and calculated data
and performs/displays system and sensor diagnostic messages

console provides convenient, local interface for Monitor’s “Smart” RS-485
SiloPatrol® SMU SE cable-based inventory monitoring
sensors, RadarRight(TM) non-contact radar level sensors and/or Flexar® guided wave radar level

for monitoring up to 32 SMU SE, RadarRight and/or Flexar sensors.
The HMI2 display screen can be easily switched to view calculated
level, volume, weight or percent in addition to the basic distance
measurement. The HMI2 can be programmed to operate the SMU
SE “Smart” RS-485 sensors automatically, manually
or allow for both. Menu options allow the user to select days
of SMU SE operation (such as Mon.-Fri.), time window (such
as 7 a.m.-3 p.m.) and measurement interval (minimum 30 minutes).
Flexar’s measurements are updated automatic.
The built-in 16 point strapping table can be used to produce
volumetric or gravimetric calculated
readings if the dimensions of a vessel cannot be determined or the vessel is
of an irregular shape.

Output Enclosure (AOE)
A unique feature of the SiloPatrol® SE or
Management Systems is the ability to incorporate both relay
and analog outputs with a standard "smart" output
sensor system. These auxiliary relay and/or analog outputs
are provided in optional Auxiliary Output Enclosures (AOE)
and are programmed and controlled by either the HMI2 or
Inventory Management Software.
One analog output and up to four relays (two for HMI2;
four for SiloTrack) can be assigned to each of the “smart” output
sensors. These can be used to tie the Inventory Management
System into remote control systems, sound alarms and for
local control functions.
Up to 16 analog outputs or 32 relays can be provided within
a single enclosure. Up to four AOE’s can be connected
on a single network. The AOE can be located close to the point
of hardwiring termination minimizing wiring and installation

Mass Flow Measurement Systems
The QuantiMass in-line mass flow sensor measures the flow of quantities in pneumatic conveying & free-falling processes. The sensor is based on the latest Microwave Doppler Effect technology and provides fast, in-line / on-line measuring without the use of weight scales.
The sturdy, non-intrusive design of the sensor minimizes maintenance. In addition, the compact size of the sensor makes for easy installation into existing processes. Suitable for powders, dust, pellets, and granular up to 0.75 inch (2cm).
Ultra Series-Includes controller
PRO Series-Includes transmitter
A practical application for the QuantiMass would be to monitor material flow rates to verify blending mixture ratios.
Principle of Operation:
The QuantiMass Mass Flow Measurement Sensor / Meter is designed with the latest microwave technology and is used to continuously quantify the flow of powders & solids being conveyed in metallic pipes. The QuantiMass is based on technology that has been developed and proven by Muetec Intruments over several years. The measurement process of the sensor is centered on the Doppler effect. The mass flow-rate is determined by evaluating the frequency and amplitude changes during the measurement process. Particles at rest, such as deposits, do not influence the measurement. All powders, dust, pellets and granules can be measured reproducibly, up to the size of 0.75 inch (2cm). The QuantiMass sensor is suitable for continuous in-line / on-line measurements in pneumatic conveying or in free-fall pipelines.
