Rising levels of heat, moisture and Carbon Dioxide in silos are a sure sign of fermentation. This process involves the development in the grain of living organisms such as mites and insects, as well as microorganisms such as mold and bacteria. Subsequently, insects can also create cereal infections such as fungus.
Controlling temperature fluctuations in grain storage is the sector's most cost-effective and common way to reduce grain spoilage and loss. Multipoint temperature measurement cable ET910 allows measuring temperature at regular intervals for reliable detection of diseased areas along the entire silo height. SWA (steel wire armored) protection tube, water and dust protection design as well as complies with ATEX requirements for Zone 20 and Zone 21 ensure accurate readings and cable durability.
E7718 controller implements dynamic register assignment for sensors data, allowing to build very flexible and complex 1-wire digital sensor networks with multi-level µLAN topologies. It is fully weather and dust protected and complies with ATEX requirements for Zone 20 and Zone 21 installations in grain silos. The innovative design provides robustness and extremely fast and easy installation.
