Rotem's - Platinum Plus and Junior Poultry House Controllers
Platinum Plus and Junior Controllers feature Rotem’s Precision Ventilation technology, an innovative technology that has revolutionized poultry house ventilation worldwide. Precision Ventilation features Dynamic Cruise Control, which automatically adjusts the ventilation system according to the changes in temperature, humidity and static pressure. The system takes into considerationthe wind chill factor, fan air capacity, minimum required ventilation according to bird weight, and the temperature differential between the two ends of the house. In doing so the Platinum provides:
- Optimal target temperature, humidity and CO2
- Optimal air conditioning; reduced humidity & ammonia levels
- Reduced heating & ventilation costs
Using a Platinum Plus/Junior is simple. The units feature a large LCD graphic display, and on-screen help and graphs. A Windows-based software package can be installed on any PC, enabling remote monitoring and control over the unit.
A Platinum Plus/Junior provides the grower with a large variety of functionality:
- Digital inputs provide data on the feed count , water meter, feeder overtime, auxiliary alarm
- 0 to 10 volt analog outputs enable control over light dimmers and variable speed fans
- Growers wanting to control their feeding operations as well as collect the data needed to properly analyze their operations can connect the controller to bird, feed and silo scales.
- Full control via a PC (both locally and remotely) is possible by installing a communication card and by connecting the Controller to a Rotem Communicator.
- An optional digital input/analog output combo card frees a card slot, thereby enabling even more functionality
The Platinum features numerous backup controls that ensure that critical systems continue to function even in the event of an emergency (for example power or controller failure, communication breakdown and more).
- The Vent/Curtain Relay & Switch Card provides an extra margin of safety for vents and curtain opening
- The Emergency Card ensures emergency operation of five normally closed outputs if the main controller fails
