- Interfaces With Two Level
- Remote/Vendor Managed Inventory Solutions
- Unique Server/Client Security and Database
IL –Monitoring and managing your
silo inventory is an important job. Production
depends on it, and accounting can insist on it.
Now, with SiloTrack Version 3.5 it has never been
easier. At Monitor Technologies we recognize that
not one type of sensor technology can fit every
bulk solids inventory monitoring application. That's
why our latest SiloTrack Version 3.5 inventory
management system will interface with our smart
guided wave radar and cable-based sensors.
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
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
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.

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,
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
Principle of Operation for the TrueCap RF Capacitance Level
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.
