Grain farmers may remotely monitor the levels of their grain bins with a new product from BinMaster Level Controls. BinView uses BinMaster’s SmartBob sensors mounted on bins to provide real-time monitoring of grain. The information is sent through the Internet on a wireless or wired data communications network to a grower’s computer or IP network.

Time savings is an advantage of BinView because a grower does not need to manually check grain levels in the bins. The SmartBob sensors are programmed to take measurements at any time interval and will send the information to a cell phone, computer, or PDA.

Prices for the BinView with SmartBob sensors range from $1,000 to $1,900 per bin. For more information about BinMaster, visit
