Digi-Star and RDS Technology debut products, platforms and connectivity at Agritechnica 2013
Digi-Star and RDS Technology, providers of precision monitoring, measuring and control systems for mobile machinery will be exhibiting their enhanced range of total solutions covering a wide cross-section of the industry from spreading, seeding, harvesting & baling, to livestock feeding, on-board weighing & forestry applications.
In Hall 25, visitors can visit Digi-Star's dedicated livestock feeding booth and be introduced to the company's latest developments leading with TMR Tracker Touch where end users are able to remotely access real time animal feed group inventory information.
Producers who take advantage of Digi-Star's full Precision Feeding suite, can change their dry matter, scale side using the new Moisture Tracker™. This is part of a comprehensive total livestock feeding system using a hand-held moisture scanning device with a Windows based software and new Touch Screen Technology on the feed mixer for managing animal feed ingredients, rations, mixes and groups. Operators can also view recipe ingredients and target weights from their loader when they use Cab Control. Actual loaded weight and fed ration data is stored and transferred to a producer's PC for detailed reporting and analysis in TMR Tracker.
Connectivity is a theme running throughout the exhibit in Hall 17 with Isosync Mobile, a wi-fi link with WEIGHLOG a10 on-board weighing system, displaying the live bucket weight on a smartphone.
The WEIGHLOG a10 is a user-friendly on-board weighing system that can be retrofitted onto compact wheeled loaders, telescopic handlers, forklifts, skidsteer and tractor loaders. Suitable for use with up to 10 different attachments e.g. buckets or forks, the system is used for trailer & hopper loading, batch blending or check-weighing incoming goods.
The system provides data storage via SD card reader and USB 2.0 host allowing quick, safe and efficient uploading and downloading of data.
In addition, Isosync allows an end-user to view the comprehensive LOADMASTER 100 database remotely on their smart phone or alternatively full two-way communication with a central computer for the transfer of job data including products, customers and truck numbers.
The new LOADMASTER a100 on-board weighing system has been designed for large wheeled loaders operating in the toughest environments and incorporates advanced inclinometer & pressure sensor technology, comprehensive databasing capability & GPRS, Wi-Fi, SD & USB connectivity.
Grain Tracker (GT), an ISOBUS capable grain cart and forage harvest tracking application, will be featured in the technology zone.
Nutrient application and monitoring will be led by Apollo PSi controlling the floor conveyor speed proportional to forward speed, incorporating calibration from on-board weigh-cells with application data stored on an SD card.
A comprehensive range of seed drill solutions will be on display from MFDC 100 providing basic monitoring of seed drill functions and tramline sequence to Artemis featuring variable rate by operating the metering unit with an electric motor maintaining its speed proportional to forward speed and Precision Farming capability utilising GPS and a predefined seeding plan for automated variable seed rate application.
Agritechnica 2013 will also see RDS Technology exhibiting its Ceres 8000i yield monitor & Combine Moisture Meter system, Expert+ bale wrap controller and the Chipper 100 controller.
