Smart Farming Solution Boosts Poultry Production


Based in Portugal, CapTemp, specialists in industrial monitoring and control applications, have developed a smart farming solution that monitors, controls and analyzes different assets of a poultry house for improved animal production. Partnering with Equiporave Iberica, makers of livestock equipment, CapTemp developed a sensor control system solution that collects and reports data on different parameters within the poultry house such as temperature, humidity, and gases as well as machine energy consumption. Data logging and redundancy functions provide for a fail-safe solution with customized control features such as scheduled machine usage when energy is available at a lower cost.

The Nidus-IT Monitoring and Control System features temperature, humidity, CO2, CO, CH4, NH3, and H2S sensors installed on key equipment to monitor divers operating conditions within the poultry house.  Also installed, Lda Feed-bin weight scales allow users to assess feed levels in bins to improve feed distribution and logistics.
