This paper presents the design and implementation of a level detector. Silometer is an electromechanical level detector which can measure the level in silos, tanks, bunkers and any kind of containers, depending on the sensing weight and strain force. The Silometer is mostly applicable in dusty, harsh and coarse environments, but it is also useful to be employed in other environments such as in liquid and so on.
