SD-9 Silo Display

29 June 2023 | Int. Livestockhousing Guide |

Why use Hotraco’s SD-9 Silo Display? 

Normally the content of silos and their current level of fill is only visible on the main controller. When silo weighing is applied, the SD-9 can display the content of up to 9 silos. The SD-9 is mounted near to silos, so the driver who supplies the feed can see the filling grade in real time. When the farm manager sets the levels for the ‘FILL’ and ‘STOP’ warning, the SD-9 shows said warnings accordingly so the driver knows which silo should be filled first and when the filling should be stopped.

The SD-9 can be used for up to 9 silos. When multiple silos are connected to the display you can scroll through the weights in the silos by using the push button. Since SD-9 displays are installed outside, it is recommended to connect them via a CAN-ISO interface in order to provide a galvanic separation for the part of the CAN-Local bus that leaves the building.

Benefits of SD-9 

• No more feed waste
• Easy feed fill process
• Live visibility of silo fill level
• Simple and reliable system
