Hatchery Control

Livestock applications

You will find our sensors on very diverse missions. Everything from controlling hatching of eggs to monitoring CO2 in slaughter houses.

During incubation the embryo, as any living organism, needs oxygen and produces carbon dioxide, metabolic water and metabolic heat. Without getting into details there are scientific studies that show different results in increased and decreased hatch ability due to CO2 concentrations. Successful hatch management uses CO2 sensors to control the incubation and the hatching time.

Sensor challenge

Hatcheries are the worse environment to electronics in general and sensors in particular.

The reason is not only humidity and temperature but the particles generated by the chickens when they see their first daylight, we call it the ”fluff” factor. On top of that hatcheries are thoroughly cleaned between incubations with high pressure spray.

Our sensor S9 is specially made to suit extreme rough environments. The membrane that protects the sensor can be GoreTex® to let air in and keep water out. There is a special cover to be used when cleaning and the sensor is installed with a bayonet for easy replacement. Other membranes might be applied corresponding to other medias like oil, dust etc.

 

 

Adaptable platforms

Most of our OEM customers need  ready to install products and solutions. You will find your solutions on one of five Adaptable Platforms where we can start our journey together. You can buy our sensors as stand alone (Sensor Core), mounted on a pcb (Sensor onBoard) with other functions such as communication, power and other sensors.

You will also find that we have extended warranties when we deliver white label casing (Sensor inCase) with all functions.
