The choice is yours:
Standalone unit or network integration - All control units are networked and exchange data. When needed, input boxes can be connected to the network. With a PC connected to the network, the complete parlor can be set at once without extra tools. Once information is entered in the network, it is shared with all the other components. Connecting switches (safety, gates, vacuum, etc…) is safe and simple.
Standalone: once configured, the PC can be taken away. SmartLite runs easily as a standalone unit, offering you a smart detacher.
Networked: leave the PC connected and run the SmartLite Management software. All information generated by the components connected to the network can be displayed and stored, in real-time, on the computer in chronological order. This provides you with even more information to improve the efficiency of your milking routine and ultimately cow health and comfort.
With the bright, multi-colored LED button you have an instant overview of the milking status at each stall and can react to any challenges that may arise.
Design has one control unit for every 4 milking points.
Resistance Sensor has a wide measuring range with the flexibility to set the minimum milk flow for detaching the milking cluster from low (under 250g/mn) to high flow rates (above 1000g/mn).
Single-button operation for functions such as Start/Stop and Manual/Automatic; by just lifting the cluster, QuickStart activates to start the milking process for you.
Works with the BouMatic shut off valve range for new and retrofit applications.
The control unit can be easily mounted onto the metal frame of the stall or under the curb.
The controller is easily mounted on the metal structure of the stall
All controllers are networked and exchange data. If necessary, it is possible to connect boxes to manage information across the network. With a PC connected to the network, the entire milking parlor can be configured at one time without additional tools. As soon as the information is introduced into the network, it is shared with all the other components. The connection of information (security, portals, voids, etc.) is both safe and simple.
The optional SmartLite PC Management Software provides data that is essential to your individual management needs, such as milking event logging, milking progress information, milking duration, and alarms. You can share historical data with third parties, such as veterinarians or counselors, and even follow the milking phase of each cow on the screen. This will help you better understand your milking routines and improve your overall milking performance.
