Multiple bin monitoring

BinMaster’s 3D MultiVision, a Windows-based inventory management software for the 3DLevelScanner, enables users to view data for multiple bins in a single window. The software can be used with all versions of the non-contact, dust-penetrating 3DLevelScanner, including the S, M, MV and MVL models. By clicking on a single bin, users can zoom in on detailed information for the bin, including minimum, maximum and average levels, and see the 3D visualization of bin content for the MV and MVL models. Furthermore, the software allows multiple users at multiple locations to view bin level and volume data 24/7 via their Local Area Network (LAN). Allowing real-time bin data to be available across an entire organization improves purchasing, logistics, operational decision making and financial management, according to the manufacturer.

The software is compatible with Windows XP and Windows 7, and features user-friendly set up and intuitive operation. It also allows each user to customize their screen to view all bins or a group of bins, and color-code bins by material type. Users can set high and low level alerts to be notified when bins reach critical levels. As the software is installed on the LAN, there are no third-party applications or data access fees. — BinMaster, www.binmaster.com
