Black box makes sense of remote grain store control

Monitoring specialists Robydome have launched a new sensing and management system.

Launched at LAMMA 2019, the new Robydome WTM-1 smart grain store monitoring and control point enables complete remote management of temperatures and ventilation within the crop in flat-floor stores.

The WTM-1 is a self-contained smart box in the store, linked to its temperature probes and ventilation system sensors. All information to manage store conditions is available instantly, and in real-time, using a clear and simple web-browser page to check and make changes.

The device can be operated using a smartphone or tablet. The highly intuitive control programme is designed from years of experience and knowledge of grain store installation and operation, with fully automatic or manual control.

Linked to ambient humidity and temperature sensors it can autonomously regulate if and when fans operate, to condition the crop to the ideal storage point. The system can also be fully integrated and managed from a computer in the farm office or home.

Records continuously track progress and reports as grain temperatures cool for individual points across the store – ensuring any hot spots can be quickly targeted and resolved. The WTM-1 will automatically send an email alert if any danger points or problems are triggered.

A single WTM-1 control point can manage up to eight stores, with up to 32 sensors in each store. It is compact design and high functionality eliminates all the issues with dust and humidity experienced with a static computer point in the store.

With the Robydome system all  historical records and data are held on the farm’s own box, rather than a remote server. The company says this eliminates expensive monthly data storage and access costs associated with server-based systems.

The WTM-1 is available for compatibility with the company’s range of wireless probes and sensors for new store installation or upgrades, says Robydome – as well as being available as a retro-fit for suitable existing systems.
