The new BinCloud Solar Gateway from BinMaster offers a solution for installing level sensors on bins or silos in hard-to-reach locations where powering them up is a challenge.
The system efficiently provides the necessary power to operate two sensors and transmit data to the cloud once every hour. It seamlessly integrates with non-contact radar level sensors or any 4-20 mA loop-powered sensors, ensuring compatibility and flexibility.
Installation of the BinCloud Solar Gateway is a breeze, and users won’t see any increase in energy expenses, according to the manufacturer. The gateway is powered by a 50-W solar panel, which charges a lithium battery pack located within the BinCloud Gateway.
Mounting the solar panel and gateway is straightforward and easily affix to a wall or hand railing near the bin. In cases where no mounting structure is available nearby, an optional pole is securely bolted to the ground. The battery boasts an impressive 48-hour lifespan even without direct sunlight, ensuring continuous functionality.
