Hot spots and fire hazards can arise from deep within your bulk cottonseed. Seed Trac* removes the guesswork from seed storage by remotely monitoring seed temperature. Temperature monitoring cables take automatic readings at every level in your seed. Customizable notifications alert you to hot spots AND their exact location before the damage is done.

► Access Real-time and Historical Temperature Data from a Mobile Device or Computer
The Seed Trac system eliminates the need to make frequent visits to your seed house. Cotton seed temperature is easily accessible from a secure website and mobile application, which enables you to monitor seed temperatures from anywhere and at anytime. The system utilizes temperature-reading cables with thermocouples placed at varying heights installed throughout your storage facility. The cables are connected to enclosed sensor boards and an internet modem to send temperature readings to the web. Readings are taken every two hours to provide you with timely data.
► Configure Alarms and Text or Email Alerts
Customizable notifications can be set to alert key personnel when cottonseed temperatures exceed certain setpoints. Multiple names, phone numbers, and email addresses can be entered to receive alerts when a "hot spot" arises. This helps you take action before any damage is done to your product.
► Program Aeration Fan Schedules and Runtime
If your storage facility utilizes aeration fans to control seed temperatures, you can program fan run schedules and durations from your computer or mobile device. You can also operate the fans remotely on demand in response to hot spot alert.
► Save Energy and Prevent Loss of Weight Due to Over-aeration
Unless you are monitoring seed temperatures, you are probably running your aeration fans too much. As a result, the energy costs of your storage operations are much higher than they need to be. What's more, you could be drying out your product and causing shrinkage due to a loss of moisture and weight. With Seed Trac, you will only run your fans as needed to keep temperatures at an optimal level. Seed Trac will help you keep energy costs low and prevent shrinkage.
► See the Exact Location of Hot Spots
If a hot spot arises, the Seed Trac system will identify where it is located exactly. This allows your team to find it quickly and either start your aeration fans to lower the temperature or dig it out to protect the rest of your product.
