Efficient silo management for smooth process flow
UWT GmbH has developed an economical and practical solution in terms of centralized content level monitoring; especially suited for the storage processes within industrial plants. First the maintenance-free electromechanical lot system Nivobob® is mounted on each silo within the plant for continuous level monitoring. The plumb bob systems of the economical Nivobob® 4000 series are now shipped with a Modbus interface as standard which allows for quick and easy connection of the units to the visualization system. The operation of the installed sensor devices is made absolutely transparent, as the operating status and all diagnostic parameters, taken during the communication of the units, are recorded in the Modbus register. Parameters such as content level, operating time, pending replacement intervals, sensor status and much more are available to the operator.
For level control, diagnostics etc. the license-free visualization software Nivotec® is used: The information is sent from the electromechanical lot sensors to the visualization system via Modbus. The operator can access the required information from any PC 24h a day. The software with its data storage and trend analysis function enables the operator to perfectly plan his material disposition and any logistics required. The outcome is a very effective silo management resulting in cost saving due to planning security.
With this new development UWT has responded to the demands for an affordable solution which combines reliable level monitoring with live-data visualization for effective silo management.
