Another pig barn in South Africa has been automated with the Hotraco system. It concerns four barns with a total of eight compartments. Each compartment contains 1,100 piglets, weighing between 6 and 35 kg. The SIRIUS computer controls the ventilation, heating and extra cooling. The feed is registered via silo weighing. The computers are connected to the SMARTLINK-RM, which makes remote control possible. The SIRIUS computer can be controlled via a smartphone, tablet or PC using the Remote+ app. In this way, the staff are able to respond quickly to situations in the barns, no matter where they happen to be.
The SIRIUS-DF is a computer for controlling a dry feed system. Each feeding turn, you can take feed out of one silo. You can connect a maximum 4 silo augers.
The SIRIUS-V is a ventilation computer for rooms, where the ventilation has to be controlled proportionally and / or in stages.
