INTER-IoT with Automated Bulk Material Inventory System

INTER-IoT with Automated Bulk Material Inventory System
23 Apr 2024  |
Food producers integrating Smart Factory automation can digitize and optimize bulk ingredient inventory with BinCloud®. This cloud-based inventory software integrates IoT sensors and systems, regardless of technology or manufacturer, to maximize data reporting and analysis. The move helps companies align with the Interoperability Internet of Things (INTER-IoT) project introduced to the European Union in 2020.

Increasingly, food producers incorporate IoT sensors to measure bulk material levels, pressure, flow, humidity, vibration, and temperature throughout their facility. With BinMaster systems, food production managers can track liquid and dry bulk ingredient levels in bins, silos, and tanks. The BinCloud app also integrates IoT using API calls from third-party platforms and presents the data into easy-to-read reports available on a PC or phone. 

According to Globe Newswire, IoT sensors promote traceability and transparency along the food supply chain. The market is expected to grow to a $22 billion industry by 2025. Growth is spurred by higher raw ingredient costs and the need to automate production due to higher labor shortages and costs.

“BinCloud software offers configuration flexibility and customers are calling for system integration,” said Mike Mossage, BinMaster Regional VP. “Integrating level sensors and software helps customers meet those INTER-IoT goals.”

BinCloud is IoT software with security, flexibility, and simple setup. It includes automatic alerts and notifications in real time, multiple-site management, historical data, consumption projections, custom user roles, and material ordering capabilities.

BinMaster NCR-86 radar sensors meet food industry requirements and measure solids, liquids, grains, and powders in tanks and silos. Complementary products for flow detection and mini-capacitance probes enhance process management to digitize food production further.
