The Bindicator® Yo-Yo™ is a cable and weight sensor specifically designed for the continuous management of dry bulk solids inventory.  It provides accurate and reliable inventory information for tanks and silos through an automated drop line technology.  Its LCD display (available as an option - learn more about the Yo-Yo™ Series offering here) can configure and monitor up to 99 sensors. While there are many types of cable and weight sensors available, not all of them are the same. So what sets the Bindicator® Yo-Yo™ apart from the others?

1. OPTIONS FOR CABLE

The cable used on a yo-yo type device should be compatible with the application that it's being used for.

Bindicator offers three types of cable:
  • Polyester - used for standard applications such as plastics and aggregates
  • Monofilament - used for liquid/solid interface applications to protect from corrosion
  • Stainless Steel - used for high temperature applications

2. EASE OF ADDRESSING

Naming the units so that the communication device can display the correct output for each silo should be easy.

Naming (addressing) the sensors is simple with numerical rotory switches, which allows for easy changes in the field - there is no need for a setting chart, legend or key of any type.

3. DISPLAY PERFORMANCE

Configure one sensor or an entire system with Bindicator's Yo-Yo™ display/programmer.

Bindicator's Yo-Yo™ display/programmer:

  • Shows data quickly
  • Shows engineering units such as lb, kg, ft³, m³
  • Can connect up to 99 sensors per single display

4. CONNECTIVITY AND COMMUNICATIONS

Monitor data or take a reading from anywhere.

The Yo-Yo™ can be fully integrated with Bindicator's ORB Inventory Management System, which provides real-time inventory data for productivity and supply chain improvement.
