The system can also be connected to Adaptive Agriculture’s control devices Bindapt+ and Bindapt+ Pro, which is a thermostat controller for two heaters or for one heater and aeration fan.
Once the grain and moisture target are added to the portal, it will connect to the control devices to manage the process and tell users what’s going on in their bins.
The system can provide alerts through email and text message, including notice of high humidity or a drop in aeration fan pressure, which can indicate power loss.
Maki said once the system is given the bin, inventory and initial moisture content, it can automatically achieve the target moisture content for the grain.
“When you build a digital version of that bin, we know the fan, we know the size, whether it’s flat bottom or hopper. So, with that, the math kind of runs through it and just automates either the fan or a heater to dry that grain down or add moisture if needed,” Maki said.
The system can be set to automatically raise the moisture content of stored grain by running fans in high humidity conditions.
