BinMaster Level Controls has introduced BinLink, the Web-based monitoring system for bins, tanks and silos. The tool enables remote wireless management of stored material from any computer connected to the internet. Core components include BinMaster's SmartBob2 and SmartBob-TS1 sensors mounted on the bins, a wireless or wired data communications network, a gateway to provide connectivity to a personal computer or IP network, and data-collection software which can be viewed by any authorized individual via an internet connection. Data streams instantaneously from BinMaster sensors to the internet, providing accurate bin information on a real-time basis, according to the vendor. BinLink provides round-the-clock monitoring, live on the internet, streaming the most current inventory or historical data to authorized users. Automated alerts can send e-mail and cell-phone alerts when bin conditions meet user-defined thresholds. According to BinMaster, BinLink eliminates the need to manually check bin levels. Site-mapping capabilities include a built-in visual mapping feature which shows tank types, locations and levels. BinLink also features end-to-end encryption and authentication to ensure the safety and confidentiality of data from the bin to the corporate office.
