EDGE® is a single platform that is versatile and intuitive allowing it to handle all control functions for broiler, breeder, pullet, layer, turkey and virtually any other poultry application. The unique design makes EDGE the only controller on the market that can be configured to match your operation’s specific requirements and is flexible enough to be adapted to new or existing houses. Throughout your birds’ growth stages, the management of HVAC, lighting, nutrition and weighing systems is made easier with EDGE.
|Multi-Room / Multi-House Controls|
Whether running a large operation with dozens of sites or a small facility with one or two buildings, EDGE's modular architecture adapts to your exact needs. The appropriate number of inputs and outputs is easily determined, and it becomes more economical as the operation expands. Redundant power supplies and communication paths provide uninterrupted operation in the event of a power supply failure. For additional safety, add a second main controller to maintain operation should the primary main controller have an issue.
Scenario is an EDGE software feature that allows a group of outputs (fan, inlets, and lights) to be set in a specific by‐pass state without directly interacting with the EDGE. Users unfamiliar with EDGE can press a button programmed with a predefined set of output states for a specific situation. The button can be located anywhere on site and does not require the user to interface directly with EDGE. However, EDGE users can activate or deactivate a Scenario via the EDGE control or with any internet connected device. Scenarios can be created for any number of situations and each one can have its own set of criteria that must be met before a Scenario will run. Minimum and maximum animal age, time of day, and outside temperature can be specified along with the ability to set the state of fans, inlets and lights, give the Scenario feature vast possibilities. Use of the Scenario feature requires EDGE software version 2.4.4 or higher.
Triple layers of protection, with fail-safe redundancy to control mission-critical functions
Navigation is easy with the large, 15" color touchscreen. Everything is right in front of you for quick, easy navigation. The buttons are large enough to be touched even when wearing gloves. Color-coded notifications give you real-time status of your entire operation. Site-wide conditions can also be monitored from the touchscreen.
With EDGE, you have the power to control multiple buildings or rooms from a single controller using one interface. EDGE reduces management complexity and offers you considerable cost savings by eliminating the need to have a separate controller for each individual location. One EDGE System can easily do what up to 64 individual controllers used to do.
The built-in Configuration Wizard is designed to guide you through the initial set-up by prompting you with questions about each of the specific applications that have been installed. Simply input the fans, inlets, temperature probes, lights, and other equipment you have, where they are located, and the production type (broiler, breeder, layer, pullet, turkey). Based on this information, EDGE will automatically configure run settings to operate at optimal conditions.
Plug in an Ethernet cable and you are ready to take control of the system from the comfort of your truck, office, couch, and anywhere in between. EDGE gives you the freedom to leave the farm while knowing you are only one touch or click away.
We developed our patent pending LED temperature probes to simplify installation and take the hassle out of individually identifying the location of each probe.
