Efficient silo management for smooth process flow

The electromechanical Lot system Nivobob® 4000 is equipped with a Modbus function which allows easy connection to visualization systems, thus providing an economic silo management solution.

 

Multifunctional unit for discontinuous level monitoring in bulk goods

 

The electromechanical measurement device is an invaluable instrument in the field of inventory management due to its advanced electronics technology. The reliable electromechanical lot system Nivobob® with its robust mechanical design has for that reason become the choice of many plant operators across the globe faced with demanding conditions. The Nivobob® series of plumb bob sensors is used for continuous level measurement within bulk storage silos and for interface measurement. The simple electromechanical measurement principle is a truly reliable all-rounder in most bulk materials.

 

Nivobob® 4000 with Modbus function

The electromechanical Lot system Nivobob® 4000 is equipped with a Modbus function which allows easy connection to visualization systems, providing an economical silo management solution.

UWT GmbH has developed an economical and practical solution in terms of centralized content level monitoring; especially suited for the storage processes within industrial plants. The maintenance-free electromechanical lot system Nivobob® is mounted on each silo within the plant for continuous level monitoring. The plumb bob systems of the economical Nivobob® 4000 series come standard with a Modbus interface which allows for quick and easy connection of the units to the visualization system.

Parameters such as content level, operating time, pending replacement intervals, sensor status are available to the operator. For level control, diagnostics etc. the license-free visualization software Nivotec® is used: The information is sent from the electromechanical lot sensors to the visualization system via Modbus. The operator can access the required information from any PC 24h a day. The software with its data storage and trend analysis function enables the operator to perfectly plan material disposition and any logistics required. The outcome is efficient silo management resulting in cost saving due to planning security. With this new development UWT has responded to the demands for an affordable solution which combines reliable level monitoring with live-data visualization for effective silo management.

 ADVANTAGES:

  • Communication between Nivotec® visualization software and Nivobob® 4000 lot systems can be    conveniently controlled directly from your PC
  • Modbus RTU interface reduces the installation time by using Daisy-Chain-Wiring
  • Silo full detector can be wired directly to the Modbus RTU interface of the Nivobob® 4000
