The iScan silo moisture system consists of three parts:

1) The sensor unit (iScan).
2) Control cabinet that communicates over Ethernet
3) AquaSmart software that runs on PC

iScan system setup

The Control cabinet is a robust and a reliable signal processing unit that is made for harsh industrial environment.

Standard 4-20mA output is available. and several inputs for other sensors such as air humidity sensors or level sensors.

Ethernet connection from the Control Cabinet enables communication with the factory control system. Remote access to the system for servicing or upgrades is therefore possible.

Main features:

• Easy to operate: in many cases only one to four calibrations are needed.
• Not sensitive to colour changes
• Not influenced by dust or humidity
• Measures bulk moisture, not just surface moisture (as opposed to NIR)
• Low maintenance, no moving parts, high quality components
