Opticon's controllers provide all the necessary functions to operate my farms

For the ventilation of my pig finisher houses I have chosen for the controllers of Opticon Agri-systems. Each controller controls 4 rooms. All controllers are connected to a central unit which is located in the technical room. The central unit is connected wireless to my PC at home providing me the possibility to remotely analyse and control my pig houses. All measurement and controlling functions are done by Opticon's MCC-10 computer.

I chose this unit because it's easy to use and in my opinion incorporates all the necessary functions to operate a modern pig house.

The computer easily can be set up in such a way that it only displays the activated functions. This simplifies the use of the controller during daily operations.

Biography :

Back in the days Mr. Smeijers senior started the farm as a diary farm, which still can be seen at the sign at the entrance of the farm.
His son, Mr. Marten Smeijers took over the farm about 18 years ago. Today he is running a pig farm with a total of 6500 finishing pigs, operated by only 1,5 FTE because of complete automation.
