Monitor stack level

Postby kp4djt » Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:15 pm

I am trying to figure out if this is already in ZM or I will need to
figure out how to add it. We are testing a system in the plant where
I am working, it monitors conveyors, a bag collector and other
areas where in the past we had a person. Now one person can keep
a eye on several locations. But we have one place where we need
to detect that the level of a stack has risen above a certain point.
This is a stack of crushed glass. I rises too slow for motion detection
to catch it, what I need is something that detects that a certain per-
centage of the pixels have turned dark, and sends a alarm as though
it was a motion alarm. That way the guys that have the screens in
front of them will advise the front loader guy that it is time to remove
some glass. Now they have to watch it to make sure it does not fill.
Since it does not move very fast it is easy to forget.
