Silo Patrol® Plumb Bob Style Level Sensor
factsheet

The Silo Patrol® SE Inventory Management System is an industry-leading cable-based smart level sensor system that is designed to handle some of the harshest and most dynamic conditions. The Silo Patrol SE system incorporates state-of-the-art sensors, a wide choice of operator interfaces, auxiliary outputs and displays, as well as unique remote/vendor managed inventory solutions.

The introduction of Silo Patrol several years ago delivered the first truly robust level sensor design, providing reliable and high value solutions for a wide variety of applications and industries worldwide. The Silo Patrol SE incorporates significant advances in this field-proven approach to reliably monitoring the level of material in bins, silos and tanks up to 150ft (45.7m) in height. The Silo Patrol SE level sensor technology is suitable for use with a multiplicity of powders, granules, slurries and liquids, even in the most harsh and dynamic conditions.

The heart of the Silo Patrol SE level measurement system is the sensor itself. The Model SMU (Silo Monitoring Unit), incorporates technological advancements, requires no field adjustments and its robust design provides virtually maintenance-free operation. The SMU is suited for most any application and can be equipped with a variety of mounting flanges and plumb bobs.

The Silo Patrol SE system also offers the most sensor interface choices:
• RS-485 “smart” communications output
• 4-20mA analog output
• AC/DC Pulse output

The “smart” RS-485 output version SMU can be connected with either the multi-functional HMI2 Operator Interface Control Console or with SiloTrack™ PC-based Inventory Management Software that provides a flexible graphical interface for up to 128 sensors.

If a stand alone level detection sensor with analog output and no operator interface display is what you are looking for, the SMU is available in this type of configuration at an affordable purchase price. The SMU is available as a truly stand alone analog output transmitter, including automatic measurement initiation and a relay output.

The SMU pulse output sensor is typically used for connecting into older Monitor Technologies inventory systems. This output version retrofits and replaces the older CM3A/CM4 sensors and uses the AC pulse output to connect to the old system console. The DC pulse output also included with the latest SMU pulse output version can be used to connect into existing PLC systems.

Principle of Operation

Once a measurement cycle is initiated, the SiloPatrol® SE sensor (SMU) “smart” motor system controls the descent of a plumb bob, attached to a heavy-duty stainless steel cable, into the vessel. The SMU measures the amount of cable dispensed via its unique optical sensing system. The SMU’s optic system is completely sealed from the internal environment of the electronics compartment, which is isolated and sealed from material ingress in the mechanical compartment, to ensure long-term reliable operation.

The descent of the bob is maintained at an optimal speed by the “smart” motor control system, contributing to the elimination of cable slack and maximizing the motor life. In conjunction with the unique dual optical sensing system, the “smart” motor control system guarantees that the bob will stop when it contacts the material surface and eliminates the need for a mechanical brake. When the bob reaches the material surface, the SMU reverses the direction of the motor and transmits the distance value.

During the ascent of the bob, the SMU measures the amount of cable gathered and controls the speed of ascent. This ensures proper cable wrapping in the patented storage reel and tangle-free operation.

The latest SMU also includes an innovative Hall-effect sensor array that monitors the movement and position of the swing-arm that controls the absorption of slack in the cable system during descent and ascent. The SMU is smarter than ever and uses this technology to control the cable and plumb bob travel to ensure reliability of the measurement cycle, even with harsh changing conditions in the most severe applications.

The standalone versions of the SMU generate their respective 4-20mA or Pulse output in response to a measurement query, or automatically with the analog output version. The standard “smart” RS485 SMU communicates with the operator interface chosen for the system (HMI2 or SiloTrack™ PC software). These operator interfaces can perform calculations and conversions to display the data in the format desired. The SiloPatrol SE system, if so equipped, will also generate auxiliary analog and/or relay outputs. RS485 communications can be accomplished via hardwiring or with wireless transceivers.

APPROVALS
The SiloPatrol® SE Model SMU sensor is available certified for either Ordinary or Hazardous locations. The SMU also carries the CE Mark. Consult the Specifications section for further information.

FREEZE-RESISTANT MOUNTING FLANGES
SMU sensors can be provided with either the standard flat mounting flange or one of the angled flanges (5° and 10° available) for adapting to sloped roofs. Each of these standard flanges has a unique design that resists freezing of the plumb bob to the underside of the flange. This is especially important in very cold climate conditions where moisture from condensation within the silo can form and create ice on the underside of the silo roof, usually due to cycling above and below freezing temperature in an outdoor installation. In these applications the freeze-resistant flange may eliminate the need for standpipe or flange heating. Contact the factory for modified ANSI/DIN flanges (not “freeze resistant”).

Use of Volume/Weight Calculations

The SiloPatrol® SE Model SMU sensor makes a direct measurement of the distance between the sensor and the material surface. This equipment does not measure the volume or weight of the material within the vessel. The HMI2 and SiloTrack™ PC-based software, when used with a SiloPatrol SE “smart” output sensor, may be able to perform calculations to display the volume and weight of the material. These calculations are based upon the distance measurement and the vessel dimensions and material bulk density entered by the user during setup.

Note: The calculated volume and weight values should be considered "estimates". Monitor Technologies LLC accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of the calculated and displayed volume and weight values. The accuracy (not stated or warranted) of the volume/weight calculations are effected by the fluctuation and accuracy of various factors. These factors include, but may not be limited to, actual vessel dimensions, sensor mounting location, angle of repose (negative and positive), material bulk density, material flow properties (ratholes, bridging, etc.), material inlet/discharge locations and material packing. Please consult the factory to discuss applications where volume/weight is of critical importance.

TrueCap® MK-2
Advanced RF Capacitance Level Probe
The TrueCap® Model MK-2 RF Capacitance point level probe is designed to provide a superior and stable sensitivity threshold making it suitable for a variety of powder / bulk solids and some liquid or slurry applications.

Advanced features of the Model MK-2 include:
> Automatic immunity to material build-up on the probe by its driven shield design
> Push-button calibration
> Enhanced temperature compensation
> Maximized reliability via smart sensing algorithms like “self-validating” fail-safe protection
> Visible status LED on ordinary location units
> Versatility through a variety of configuration options including: hazardous location version, split architecture design, quick-connect process connection, stub probe, cable extensions, solid extensions, Nylon® probes, Ryton® - equiv. probes, etc.

A practical application for the TrueCap would be to use this level sensor where a residual material build-up on a different sensor would cause a false material level indication.

Principle of Operation for the TrueCap RF Capacitance Level Probe:
The vessel wall and the active probe element establish an impedance reference between each other when exposed to air which has a dielectric constant of 1. When materials with a dielectric constant greater than 1 are in close proximity to the probe, the impedance of the sensing field between the sensor and the vessel wall will change. Once the amount of change exceeds a threshold that was electronically determined during the calibration process, an output relay will either be energized or de-energized depending upon the position of the fail-safe selector on the probe’s electronic circuit board. A change of as little as .5 pico-farad is all that is necessary for the probe to sense the presence of material.
