Wireless Egg Node™

Wireless Egg Node™ identifies exact locations where egg damage takes place! 


Wireless Egg Node™ (or Smart Egg) provides a real-time measure of shock, vibration, rotation, tilting and temperature to which eggs are subjected, helping to monitor egg conveying, grading and packing installations and transportation extending from laying location to point of sale.


Wireless Egg Node™
identifies exact locations where eggs are damaged. This allows appropriate corrective action to reduce breakage and losses, thus to improve operational efficiency and enhance the profit for egg-production farms and hatching companies.


Manufacturers of grading and packing machines use Wireless Egg Node™ to ensure that conveyor systems run smoothly and are well-adjusted.

 

 

Wireless Egg Node™ Attributes:

  • Mimics the shape, size and weight of an egg for reproducibility of data
  • Measures external forces on eggs including vibration, rotation, tilt, inclination, shock and acceleration along the chain extending from collection through packing, transport and in-store handling.
  • Incorporates a high-speed tri-axial ± 40 G accelerometer with an internal temperature sensor.
  • Super accurate (+/- 0.1 C°) Internal Temperature sensor, especially for hatching eggs.
  • Water resistant and can pass through standard washing installations
  • Scalable, data transmitted up to 2 km (1.2 mile) line-of-sight
  • Network supports up to 128 Wireless Eggs simultaneously!
  • Supports continuous, burst and event-triggered sampling and data-logging with transfer of data to an internal memory
  • Extended internal memory – 16 Mb capable of storing up to 8,000,000 data points
  • Up to 6 months continuous use without charging (in 1 sample / second rate)

 

Main Features:

  • Simultaneously transmit real-time data and log to memory.
  • User-programmable sample rates up to 4096 Hz
