Dairy Farm Creates Optimal Conditions for Milk Production

The Problem

This farming customer has dairy cows that need cooling due to the heat.

Solution Design

In this barn application, we set the fans to be controlled by temperature and time and to have the ability to shut down via wind sensors. The temperature is primary and the time is secondary, so when the temperature is enabled, it will always override the time function. The wind sensors are used to shut down the fans if they detect winds over a certain speed so that the fans aren’t damaged in the event of high winds.

Cooler cows
produce more milk

Bottom Line

The customer now has a fully automated fan management system that will shut the fans down when needed for safety reasons and then speed them up as the temperature rises. And we have happy, higher-milk-producing cows!
