*Adaptive embryonic incubation *To implement post-hatch feeding as easily and flexibly as possible
Hatchery Products SmartSense uses a next generation series of intelligent, high-accuracy sensors for both adaptive incubator control and predictive process information. This results in ongoing optimisation of the incubation process, for the highest number of best-quality chicks.
This hatcher gives newly hatched chicks the earliest possible access to feed, water and light. It promotes the development of robust day-old chicks and helps to reduce the need for antibiotics. The hatcher comprises two key elements, that can be applied individually or together: precision feeding and intelligent lighting.
How it works
Fully sealed cabinet
SmartSense™ has a fully sealed cabinet for optimum control of the incubation climate. This ensures uniform temperature, humidity and CO2 build up in the initial stages of incubation for a uniform start of the incubation process. The doors are fitted with both automatic magnetic closures and drop-down seals, guaranteeing a secure, airtight and energy efficient seal. When shut, the doors create a strong, reliable barrier against air infiltration and leakage, enabling the egg pack to heat up quickly and uniformly during initial incubation and preventing the loss of valuable climatized air.
The SmartSense™ hatcher is equipped with Pas Reform’s exclusive SurroundCooling™ system: 12 parallel water-cooling circuits incorporated in the hatcher’s aluminium cabinet walls, for maximum, future-proof cooling capacity. Optimum hygiene
SmartSense™ was specifically designed to meet the stringent hygienic requirements of the modern hatchery. Being resistant to strong disinfectants and corrosion, the robust cabinets are extremely durable. With compartmentalized sensors, modular hatchers to prevent cross contamination, the incorporation of Microban® antibacterial protection into hatcher baskets and integrated cooling pipes in ‘food safe’ anodized aluminium hatcher walls, SmartSense™ sets the industry standard for incubator hygiene.
SmartWatch™ monitors and adjusts the hatching process automatically, eliminating any need for human intervention. The module finely controls ventilation in the hatcher, based on a programmable CO2 concentration, from the moment of transfer through to the hatching of the last chicks.
SmartSense’s™ advanced ergonomic design benefits from decades of practical hatchery experience. Each detail has been thoughtfully engineered to deliver safe and efficient operation, whilst minimizing maintenance and reducing the risk of mistakes and labour costs.
SmartSense™ user interfaceThe SmartSense™ user interface provides total control over every function and setting in each individual incubator. With a large, vertical, high-resolution 15.4-inch colour touchscreen and multi-language intuitive design, it is simple to operate and easily accessible to operators of all skill levels. The SmartSense™ interface also includes an extensive incubation library for customer-specific incubation programs, with ongoing support from Pas Reform Academy.
SmartSense™ features a fully integrated webcam, which allows visual inspections without disrupting the incubator climate – not just in front of the machine, but also remotely from anywhere in the world.
SmartSense™ products are fully connected for remote support and updates, giving the hatchery greater control over the incubation process. Data is exchanged with SmartCenterPro™ to deliver detailed hatchery monitoring, analysis and reporting, allowing full track & trace functionality at every level of hatchery operation.
Flexible post-hatch feeding
