The display for exact feed formulations
With rising feed costs, it is existentially important for farmers to add their own produced and cheaply purchased by-products to the animal feed. Ideally, substrates such as cereals, bread, potato products, brewers grains, sugar beet or maize silage can be used in liquid feeding. In order to make this mixing process transparent and controllable, WEDA Dammann & Westerkamp has developed the large display 4PX.Trac for internet-enabled devices.
Relief in everyday work
In everyday work, the substrates are usually removed from the silo by wheel loaders. Until now, one shortcoming was that common displays on the premixing containers only showed the current quantities that were in the metering unit. This meant that users did not know exactly which components had already been loaded and in what quantities, and how much of which substance still had to be added according to the feed recipe.
If the required quantities had not yet been reached, error messages were displayed without users knowing exactly what the messages meant. Moreover, it was sometimes difficult to read the small displays, so that mixing was not done exactly according to the recipe.
Easy-to-mount display for internet-enabled devices
WEDAs solution is the newly developed large display 4px.Trac for tablets, smartphones or any other internet-enabled device that signals the predefined quantities to the farmer. When the limit of a substrate is reached, it is immediately displayed.
Mixing becomes a finger exercise
The farmer then confirms the loading process at the touch of a finger and is then prompted to load the quantity of the next product. This makes it clear at a glance what needs to be done but users can also simply confirm and jump to the next step. The bottom line is that WEDAs 4PX.Trac enables the farmer to compose his recipes more accurately, more quickly, without costly feed losses or incorrect mixtures.
