APM Launches a new family of Non-contact 3D level Measurement instruments


Tel-Aviv, Israel – March 1, 2006 – A.P.M. Automation Solutions Ltd. (APM), a privately held company, announced the introduction of the APM 3DLevelScanner™, a high-accuracy, non-contact 3D level measurement system. Designed for use in many industrial applications, the 3DLevelScanner takes the guesswork out of measuring the level, volume and mass of materials inside a silo or an open bin and allows 3D mapping of the contents.
APMs’ 3DLevelScanner product line provides a comprehensive solution for today’s growing measurement needs of many industries that are trying to automate their production and inventory control.
The 3DLevelScanner employs a 2-dimensional array beam-former to transmit low frequency pulses and to receive echoes of the pulses from the contents of the silo, bin or other container. The device's Digital Signal Processor samples and analyzes the received signals. From the estimated times of arrival and directions of received echoes, the processor generates a 3-dimensional image.
Ofir Perl, CEO, states: “The enhanced capabilities of the 3DLevelScanner are part of our ongoing efforts to respond to market needs and to provide extremely versatile measurement solutions. APM’s proprietary technology makes the vision of 3D level measurement come true. It addresses applications previously thought to be beyond the scope of level measurement.  It reliably delivers unprecedented degrees of accuracy at an excellent price, making the 3DLevelScanner the best and sometimes the only solution in the market.”
