DLG og Ranch Systems indgår partnerskab

  • DLG-datterselskabet TNMIT har indgået en aftale om salg og service af Ranch Systems’ trådløse netværksløsninger til kontrol og overvågning i det moderne landbrug
  • Kunder hos DLG eller TNMIT kan udvide eksisterende IT-aftaler med branchens førende løsninger indenfor alt fra tørreri styring til markovervågning.

DLG har via datterselskabet TMNIT indgået en partnerskabsaftale med amerikansk Ranch Systems, hvis patenterede netværksløsninger sikrer enestående styring, kontrol og fleksibilitet i det moderne landbrug. Netværksløsningerne kan skaleres, så de virker for en enkelt enhed eller sofistikerede netværk, der kan dække alle landmandens behov for trådløs overvågning og kontrol.

Aftalen er kommet i stand efter teknologivirksomheden TNMIT har gennemført grundige tests af systemet.

”Vi har gennemført grundige tests i efteråret af en lang række af Ranch Systems produkter. Vi har på udkig efter et system, der kunne bruges uanset kundens behov – og uanset landbrugets størrelse. Det er en unik løsning, som de danske landmænd nu har mulighed for at bruge,” siger Peter Søby, direktør i TNMIT.

Det netop indgåede partnerskab betyder, at TNMIT i fremtiden vil stå for salg og servicering af danske landmænd, mens Ranch Systems får adgang til en betydelig kundebase af nogle af verdens mest ressourceeffektive landmænd.

”Hos Ranch Systems Europe oplevede vi et større gennembrud denne sommer med en række produkter specialdesignet til danske landmænd, hvilket har været med til at ændre kundernes efterspørgsel. TNMIT har erfaringen og ekspertisen til ikke blot at udbrede vores kundekreds, men samtidigt sikre den driftssikkerhed og stabilitet vores systemer har været kendt for,” siger Thomas Christfort, CEO for Ranch Systems Europe.

Fremover vil du derfor som kunde hos DLG, eller TNMIT, have mulighed for at udvide dine allerede eksisterende IT aftaler med branchens førende løsninger indenfor alt fra tørreri styring til markovervågning.

Sigfox trådløst temperaturspyd

Ranch Systems har udviklet et temperaturspyd der direkte overfører temperaturen via Sigfox netværket til vore server. Den målte temperatur opdateres hver halve time og kan aflæses på enhver PC eller telefon med adgang til internettet. Da Spyddet ikke kræver nogen form for installation i laden, kan det let flyttes rundt og benyttes hvor som helst på bedriften.

Ny regnmåler fra Pronamic

Ranch Systems skifter regnmåler i Europa. Vi har tidligere brugt en regnmåler fra Davis, men efter at have oplevet kvalitetsproblemer med denne, har vi besluttet at skifte til en Dansk produceret regnmåler fra Pronamic.

Den nye regnmåler er individuelt kalibreret på fabrikken, er godkendt, og anvendes af Nato. Regnmåleren produceres af Pronamic til Ranch Systems i en speciel version med elektronik tilpasset vores dataloggere, og leveres i grøn farve med RS logo.

De første vandstandsmålere installeret i Vordinborg

Graf over Vandstand og Nedbør i Præstø

Ranch Systems vandt udbuddet for vandstandsovervågning i Vordingborg Kommune. Vi har netop installeret de første 3 stationer, der ud over vandstand også overvåger jordfugtigheden i hele jordprofilen. Jordfugten er en vigtig parameter i forudsigelse af vandstanden, da vi jorden evne til at optage ny nedbør er afgørende for hvor meget af nedbøren der hurtigt finder vej til vandløbet.

New implementation of RG-DI7852

new rain gaugeWe have a new design for weather stations including the RG-DI7852 that reduces the size and cost of the overall package. Previously, the rain gauge was attached to the node station with an S-shaped tube that is now replaced with a more cost effective bracket. The list price for the RG-UPG-Node upgrade kit has been reduced from $85 to $60 as a result.

Additionally, the new bracket increases the stability of the bucket and the accuracy of the data. This increased stability reduces the possibility of strong winds tipping the scale inside the gauge causing a false reading for rainfall.

Davis Vantage Pro Now Compatible with Ranch Systems

The new RX30 “drop-in” board enables Davis users to upgrade to the added functionality of Ranch Systems without having to replace their weather stations. It also enables Ranch Systems users to easily add a low cost weather station.

With a single cable connecting to the RS300, the installation is simple and quick. To convert an existing Vantage Pro wireless weather station, the RX30 board replaces the wireless transmitter inside the white enclosure. It is also compatible with the weather stations deployed by PureSense and allows for an inexpensive, fast conversion. For growers who invested in PureSense technology and the Davis Vantage Pro series, the RX30 is a low cost solution to upgrade to the Ranch Systems suite of monitoring and control solutions; opening the door to additional applications and hardware options.

The new device uses RJ style connections for standard weather station sensors. For more detailed data, wind speed is provided as ‘Real’, ‘Average’ and ‘Max’ over a sampling period, which is typically 15 minutes and user configurable . It has two extra/auxiliary screw terminal connections with power and resistor networks for connecting to a variety of third party sensors (e.g. pressure switches). The only prerequisite for the RX30 is having an RS300 with Port 5 (standard analog/ digital port) available on this device. Using the Ranch Manager software, the set-up of the device is a straightforward, four step process.

Here is what Jacob Christfort, President and Founder of Ranch Systems, has to say about theRX30: “It is another example of how we can integrate disparate technologies found on a farm into a single, state-of-the-art monitoring and control solution. We intend to keep leading the way by providing technology and innovations that enable growers to be more efficient and productive in their farming operations.”
