SILOWEIGH II - vessel weighing with touch screen interface

The accurate level measurement system for silos, tanks and vessels that you can install yourself

Never run out of cement again.  Eliminate the risk of overfilling storage vessels.  SiloWeigh tells you the contents of any silo, tank or vessel - not as an empty or full signal, or even a percentage full signal based on a level measurement. Better than silo level measurement, SiloWeigh measures the actual weight of the vessel and contents to give a true picture of the amount on hand - and it costs little more than a silo level sensor.

SiloWeigh II, touch screen operator interface 

  • Displays one to six vessels on standard 4" (102mm) display screen.
  • Up to 16 vessels on optional larger 7" (180mm) screen (below right).
  • Digital connection to transmitters at each vessel, connected by single cable to make installation faster.
  • Symbols show level at a glance, % full and actual weight or volume in your choice of units (tons, gal. etc.).
  • Level display changes color as alarm points are passed, to emphasize alarm condition.
  • Dust and splashproof NEMA-4 (IP65) plastic wall-mount cabinet.
  • Optional digital I/O unit allows connection to horns, lights etc.
  • Optional analog outputs connect to control systems.
  • Can be upgraded to SiloWeigh.Net at a later date.
  • CE and UL/CUL certified.
Use of a touch screen as the operator interface gives many advantages, and at a lower cost for 3 or more vessels.  Other new features include:

SiloWeigh I, Bar Graph Meter

  The wall mount display cabinet can house from one to five bar-graph indicators for applications of just a few silos and those where the traditional indicator is preferred.
  • Display shows both level and actual vessel weight in tons, lb, kg etc.
  • Optional 4 programmable relay alarm setpoints per vessel, based on weight values, to power alarm lights or bells. These also have LED indicators on each bar graph.
  • Optional analog output for each vessel connects to PLCs and computer control systems.
  • Cabinet and indicators are dust and splash proof.  Add display covers to make them NEMA-4 waterproof.  Outdoor use requires a weatherproof enclosure, cabinet heater or both.
  • Install and calibrate the system yourself.  We deliver a kit with complete instructions. All necessary cables are provided and are colour coded. Calibration is straightforward, using the weighed deliveries as reference. 
  • Alternatively, we have trained installation experts at various US and Canadian locations - call us for details.
  • CE certified.
