BinCom modules allow a SmartBob sensor to send data to the BinView web application to provide instant access to bin level data on any device with an Internet connection. A SmartPhone, tablet, or PC can be used to get timely, remote data access to all level measurements from local and corporate-wide locations. BinCom is used to manage the inventory of powders and solids in bins, tanks and silos either on premises, at other corporate locations, or a customer or vendor location miles away.
A battery-operated BinCom module is installed with each SmartBob sensor, either affixed to the SmartBob housing or installed close by. When the SmartBob sensor takes a measurement at its predetermined interval, the BinCom module “wakes up” and sends level data via a BinCom gateway over a secure Cellular data transfer network to BinView application software in the Cloud. The data is accessed by authorized users via the Internet via a SmartPhone, tablet, or PC using secure login credentials assigned by an administrator.
