Further Improving the Efficiency of Compactors

The Compacting Bin Solution from SmartBin has been developed especially for the wide variety of compacting bins in operation globally.  The use of the SmartBin solution allows realtime remote monitoring of the fill status of compacting bins. 

By combining the SmartBin solution with compactors, it is possible to achieve a maximally efficient collection solution, whereby the maximum load is removed on ALL collection visits.  This generates substantial savings in collection costs and assocated overheads.

The SmartBin  solution has been validated in several different types of compactors.  See our case studies, for some real world examples. The solution consists of several elements shown above, and described below. 

Compactor Interface
The compactor interface is a multi-purpose interface that can accept compactor status signals from many types of compactor.  The interface can be located as required within, or alongside, the compactor's electronic module housing.  The interface then interprets the compactor signals and decides on transmission of information signals wirelessly over the GSM (cellular phone) network to the SmartBin host server. 

The interface also has capabilities to look simultaneously at several compactor signals, so that other parameters (for example, number of compactors since last empty, or total lifetime compact events) can be relayed back to the management system for monitoring, reporting or generation of service alerts.

Host Server
The wireless compactor interface communicate with the secure SmartBin host server, which parses the information received from the bins and processes this information with application specific software. The processed information is made available to service contractors on configurable websites.

Smart-Manager
The web interface provides a full service view of all compactors and a full suite of management reports, including alert SMS messages and email, etc. 

Check out the LiveDemo on this website for further information. As all the information is provided over the internet, there is no need for SmartBin clients to invest in Information Technology or have specialist skills to adopt the service.

Clinical Waste Solution - SmartBin

Each bin sensor is located discreetly in the top of each bin, from where it ‘measures’ the fill level of the bin and sends this information wirelessly to a locally installed 'Master', where the information is processed and then sent over the GSM network to the SmartBin host server. Sensors used in clinical waste bins can use either Ultrasonic or Infrared technology for sensing the fill-level, depending on the nature of the waste.
