The operation of sugarcane feeding and level control in the chute for continuous feeding of sugarcane has to be automated. In earlier, the level of the chute is identified by using LED’s indication and controls the sugarcane feeding manually. To design a signal conditioning unit for the conductivity type level sensor. The output of the signal conditioning unit is given to the controller. There are five level sensors in the five different levels in the chute. The output of the five-level sensor is given to signal conditioning unit to produce controller accepting input i.e., 4-20 mA. The advantage of this project is to reduce the cost effectively. It gives better accuracy because we use microcontroller to process the parameters.
