The SILO GPS 8000 is a battery-operated radar sensor for measuring the level of building materials in mobile silos.

Its robust construction ensures the sensor is optimized for the harsh conditions, environmental influences and mechanical loads experienced on construction sites. It is suitable for use in silos with up to 6 bar continuous pressure and features a self-sufficient energy supply by means of special high-performance batteries and specially adapted software control. The SILO GPS 8000 is therefore highly flexible and well-suited to continuous use over many years. This solution is particularly appropriate for bulk materials movement applications where mapping of the entire logistics chain is required, including building materials dealers, logistics and construction companies.

Complex, customer-specific requirements can be mapped through the extensive parameterization of reporting intervals, for determining position and levels depending on the time, day of the week and month. Additional message profiles can also be set depending on material movement.
