The trucking company saw room for improvement for everyone in the supply chain, so they worked with VEGA representatives to find a solution. That solution came in two parts: the VEGAPULS 69 and the VEGA Inventory System (VIS).
The VEGAPULS 69 is an 80 GHz radar sensor specifically designed for measuring bulk solids. This non-contact level measurement can deliver an output to continuously track inventory. The sensor is ideal for aggregates and cementitious materials because the sensor has no moving parts and withstands dust, buildup, and noise.
The VEGA Inventory System is a web-based software platform for remote inventory monitoring. Once paired with VEGA measurement sensors, it delivers real-time information about inventory, consumption patterns, and free space in storage silos. It does all this using an easy-to-understand color-coded configuration. Green means no need for a shipment. Yellow means the silo can handle at least one load. And red means the customer needs a shipment right away.
