Remote monitoring of farm inputs is becoming commonplace. The grain drying industry is no exception, as we found out at National Farm Machinery Show. Four companies are offering technology that allows for remote monitoring of grain as it dries in real time.
Tracking it all
Matthews Company (M-C), which focuses primarily on grain drying equipment, is also on board the remote monitoring train. Called M-C Trax, the technology allows an operator to monitor critical dryer data remotely, including all active alarms, discharge moisture percentage, discharge temperature, mid-grain average, all temperature readings, plenums and more. The information is easily scanned on either a home computer or mobile device.
M-C Trax pulls all that data from M-C’s Pinnacle Lite AccuDry controller located on the dryer. The system has a full color touch screen where all information can be controlled. In order for the remote M-C Trax system to work, a wired internet connection is needed. The company is offering a risk free trial of M-C Tracks, and users can return the system within 30 days if unhappy with the product. Visit matthewscompany.com.
