Scott Bonine –
Appointed National Sales Manager for
Elburn, IL --For five decades
Monitor Technologies LLC has been supplying level measurement
products and exceptional service to customers that
process bulk solids. As part of Monitor’s
continued growth and strategy to market its growing
line of products announces that it has appointed Mr.
Scott Bonine to the position of National Sales Manager. Mr.
Bonine has been with Monitor for a little more than
a decade and has held positions in inside sales and
as a Regional Sales Manager. Scott has completed
a variety of internal technical and business training
programs, is a member of the ISA (Instrument Society
of America) and GEAPS (Grain Elevator And Processing
Society). In this new position Mr. Bonine will
bring his knowledge of level monitoring and measurement
for bulk solids and his other skills and talents to
the sale of Monitor products to the United States geographic
segment in Monitor’s sales group. Scott
will work with and continue to develop the partnerships
between Monitor Technologies and its exclusive Manufacturers
Representatives. Scott’s past successes
in exemplifying excellence in service to customers,
developing representative strengths and partnering
to capture new business will serve him well.
Monitor Technologies LLC continues to pioneer level measurement and bin level
indication for the worldwide powder and bulk solids market. The experience ansd
market knowledge gained over five decades has earned Monitor a reputation for
producing products that are "engineered to be the best" and providing
customer experience “far better than” other suppliers.

Spotlight: RF Capacitance Level Sensor
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,
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.
