SiloTrack™ V3.5

Inventory Management System Offers Unique Flexibility

- Interfaces With Two Level Sensor Technologies
- Remote/Vendor Managed Inventory Solutions
- Unique Server/Client Security and Database
- English/Spanish Language is standard


Elburn, IL –Monitoring and managing your silo inventory is an important job. Production depends on it, and accounting may insist on it. Monitor Technologies LLC offers SiloTrack Version 3.5, which makes your job easier than ever before.  Flexibility is key!  One type of level measurement sensor technology does not fit every bulk solids inventory monitoring application. That's why the SiloTrack Version 3.5 inventory management system will interface with Monitor's Flexar(TM) smart guided wave radar and SiloPatrol(R) SE smart cable-based sensors.  In addition, SiloTrack V3.5 offers choices for local and remote inventory monitoring and even offers the ability to switch between English and Spanish language with a simple mouse-click.  That's flexibility and performance you can count on.

SiloTrack V3.5 provides a graphical interface for up to 128 silos per system, with a wide variety of capability including automatic report generation and scheduling, email alerts for re-order points and you can even switch between English and Spanish languages.  SiloTrack V3.5 is a smart system using Server and Client software. This means you can be assured of having your latest database of information right at your fingertips, and not thousands of miles away at some third party Internet service provider site.

In addition, SiloTrack provides security for your data and your internal IT system. SiloTrack V3.5 uses your LAN, WAN/Internet or dial-up connection to transmit database uploads between Server and Client. All transmissions are encrypted and user name/password protected. You don't have to worry about the third-party Internet provider connection going down when you're on your own internal LAN or WAN. Your data is secure and accessible all the time.

Spotlight: RF Capacitance Level Sensor
TrueCap Level SensorsTrueCap Light  
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.
