Time is money whether you're on the farm or in the oil field.
If an operator has to take time to get out of a vehicle to line up a truck with a grain auger or a trailer with a frac-sand off-loader it means more time to just get the job done.
Now a new North Dakota made, paten pending, device is helping truck drivers through portable technology.
The Stop Sensor is a truck positioning device for loading and unloading grain and other cargo.
It works utilizing a laser that's mounted either on a tripod or on a piece of machinery.
Once the reflector passes into the laser beam it lets the driver know to stop and everything is lined up.
(Larry Mosbrucker, www.stopsensor.com) "This device is made in North Dakota at amber waves electronics in Richard, North Dakota. It's basically been three years in the making. Everything is pretty much made here in the state and we're just finding a lot of uses for this potentially going everywhere."
Mosbrucker says interest is quickly growing for the Stop Censor in the oil field industry in western North Dakota.
