With an ultrasonic sensor and a SINAMICS G120C, the filling height of a container is to be maintained.

Controlling conveyor systems is an essential component of many automation tasks. SINAMICS drives can be used to solve a large number of these automation tasks. In the present application example, the level of a storage silo is to be monitored. If necessary, the filling level is to be increased with the aid of a conveyor belt.
