Opto Silo

I see a lot of local grain silos around that need revamping & upgrade. Engineering companies, when making quotations on such projects, are expensive because of the design / commissioning duration.


Is there any pre design solutions on the market ?

Re: Opto Silo

Yes, definitively,


“in countries silos” are a very important need. I would also add to your discovery that ATEX considerations are another point of attention these days


Schneider Electric design a solution named OPtiSilo (Ecostruxure Grain Silo Expert) that include manage grain between source, silos & delivery, creating the routes between assets to transfer grain around the system automatically. On the ATEX aspect, we provide directly Gaz Zone 2 automation systems & our well proven partner R. Stahl provide the Zone 1 devices if necessary, in a totally integrated joint solution.


We provide a solution including process automation & supervision in a fully integrated version.

We frequently see an engineering time reduction from a typical 7 weeks to about 5 days with no needs to write any lines of code. Such solution brings a huge project risk reduction as well.


Please, provide your contact details & let’s keep in touch to support you further.
