EE300 Inventory Sensor System Monitors Inventory

Often times electromechanical inventory measuring systems do not deliver what you need.  But the EE300 series from Aplus Finetek does indeed provide you the information you need, in the format you need it.  The EE300 is a weight & cable inventory sensor for bulk solid materials, such as plastic pellets, cement powder and many other stuff.  Combined with the MMS materials management software you can access as graphic and data from almost anywhere.  It is also known as a plumb-bob, yo-yo or bin bob type of device.

The EE300 weight & cable inventory sensor will measure the empty space distance and material level of powder, granular and liquid materials in bins, tanks and silos.  This can be setup to occur when manually requested or on a scheduled automatic basis.  The EE300 is a feature rich sensor, including a RS485 MODBUS serial link, 4-20mA output, pulse outputs and relay outputs… all standard in every EE300 sensor!

Multiple EE300 inventory sensors can be connected via a single 2 wire cable in a multi-drop daisy-chain configuration with our RCU remote control unit.  The RCU can be connected to a large number of EE300 sensors, up to over 100 sensors per RS485 network and two RS485
networks are provided in the RCU.  The RCU allows setup of basic EE300 parameters, manual initiation of a measurement for any or all sensors, along with digital LCD display of data… one or four sensors per screen. The RCU is also very cost effective and can easily be wall mounted indoors or outside as it has a NEMA 4 rating.


If more display and functionality is desired the EE300 can easily be connected to the MMS materials management software installed on the Aplus Finetek IPC (industrial computer).  This will provide a graphic display of the silo for each sensor, perform clculations from distance/level to volume and weight and provide historical data tables and graphs.
