Silo hawk is the market-leading non-intrusive real time weighing solution for silos and other weighing apparatus, using the high accuracy measurement solutions from our bolt on sensors range.
What is Silo hawk
Real time monitoring solution for silos and other weighing apparatus, using the high accuracy measurement solutions from our Bolt On sensors range. Fitting to new or existing systems, the bolt-on methodology is non-intrusive, no need for costly jack kits, custom load cells or silo downtime.
The high accuracy, low noise, temperature compensated bolt-on sensors are used to measure changes in weight measurements that feed back to local data points. The information can be viewed locally on stand alone systems or globally, using secure SSL access via our Cloud Based Storage platform. The system has optional alarm outputs, that can trigger audio/visual warnings for under or over fill, and create alerts that can be emailed directly to a known set of users.
Features and Benefits
Whether you are weighing onions, corn, barley, waste, aggregate or liquids, Silo Hawk will provide real-time key data to assist your business in saving time and money. See below just some of the benefits that Silo Hawk presents, that are achieved with experiential ROI compared to other intrusive costly systems.
Accurate & Reliable
Building on 30 years experience in industrial high accuracy weighing, the bolt on solution gives accurate and reliable data with 0.1% linearity and repeatability regardless on the product type being measured.
Compared to standard and customer load cells, ultrasonic sensors and other systems on the market, the hardware and software package is extremely cost effective with rapid ROI.
Whether you have 1 container or 1000 silos, the system can be tailored to groups or made site specific. The data can also be fed into other WMS/ERP systems and has an SQL backed database that can be queried in real time.
Easy to Install & Retrofit
The sensors can be installed with zero silo downtime, no jacking required. The retrofit to existing legs or mounting blocks and arrive reconfigured to your system.
Multi Industry Compatible
Whether you have a silo, hopper, weigh bin, waste bin, storage container, in any industry, the solution can provide real time, accurate weighing and monitoring across any industry type.
24/7 Cloud Based Monitoring & Accessible Data
View levels, weight shifts, Dispense changes, alarms and statuses of all of your silos wherever they are and where you are in the world. Being cloud base, using our secure servers, you have access to live and downloadable data 24/7, 365 days per year.
Global Silo Mapping
Silo Hawk works on a single silo at a single location through to several hundred silos at multiple locations. The secure cloud-based technology permits a remote log in to each silo or group of silos, using the search panel.
Sites and asset numbers are fully configurable and the geographical location stored to our cloud database. Site specific images can be uploaded via admin pages to tailor your system.
Individual Silo Analysis
Besides giving an overall view of your site, Silo Hawk also allows you to view each silo individually. In this screen you can manually input High and Low thresholds which will trigger an alarm or phone/email alerts, when action is required. These thresholds are completely customisable for each silo and can be adjusted at any point.
Temperature monitoring can be achieved through our optional temperature monitoring pack. If chosen, this option records real-time changes in temperature values against stored contents for auditing purposes.
Silo Hawk allows access to live data from across your site. This information can be displayed 24/7 and offers visibility of the status of each silo via secure URL. This can be viewed on smart phones, tablets and PCs, along with larger format screens for distance viewing, or more industrial rugged local screens for simple weigh values in harsher environments.
The site can be renamed to suit your requirements, along with each silo. All data is available for download via .csv format, or by running an SQL query.
