Versatility At Its Best
The Roto-Bin-Dicator is the most universal of all level sensing technologies and is the most popular level switch used in dry bulk materials. The Roto-Bin-Dicator is a rotating paddle type, bulk material level sensor offered in a wide variety of paddle options for unequaled application versatility. It is easy to install and requires no special tools or calibration.
Bindicator offers the Original Roto-Bin-Dicator models for Low Level Fail Safe protection, Super-Safe-Plus models for High Level Fail Safe requirements, and Mini-Roto for tight spaces.

- Special Motor Design Allows power to be applied all the time, producing heat and eliminating condensation
HOW THE ROTO-BIN-DICATOR WORKS?
The Roto-Bin-Dicator incorporates a low torque, slow speed synchronous motor [A]. The motor rotates a paddle [B] which is extended into the bin.
As the material builds up to the Roto-Bin-Dicator, the paddle is stopped, which in turn stalls the motor. As the motor stalls, it actuates switches [C].
The torque of the motor, while stalled, serves to keep the switches actuated while the paddle rotation is stopped by the presence of bulk material.
The switches in the Roto-Bin-Dicator serve to energize audible and visual signal systems and/or stop and start machinery such as conveyors, elevators, feeders, etc.
