    A simple to use system there you can prioritize where to put the grain and decide when to stop the system. There are sensors in all silos that sense if it’s empty or full. When I silo is full, motor-controlled valves automatically switch to the next empty silo in the list and when all silos in the list is full the system halts. There is also a safety feature that sense if a valve is stuck and not able to go to the correct position. In that case you get a fault and the system halts. There are two LCDs one for each conveyor and each conveyor have its own list.

    Haven’t had any issue with the system :D . Seems pretty solid. Have had more trouble with Siemens Logo witch seems pretty sensitive for disturbance
