Fill level measurement
For smooth production and logistics processes, precise quantity measurements at storage locations for bulk goods or plastic granulates, for example, is a decisive factor. In order to avoid production downtime due to missing material, the levels of the storage silos must therefore be reliably and automatically detected. Laser distance sensors from Micro-Epsilon, which are specially designed for these applications are increasingly used. Here, the optoNCDT ILR2250-100 sensors are applied. They are mounted on the lid of the silo and measure continuously towards the silo bottom. The laser distance sensors detect exactly the distance between sensor and bulk material or granulate.
