SmartView™

For reliable measurement of air temperature, air pressure, CO2 and humidity in any hatchery room

SmartView™ sensor technology allows hatchery climate control in the most efficient way, for the highest number of best-quality chicks. Designed to ensure the reliable central monitoring of air temperature, air pressure, CO2 and humidity in any hatchery room, the SmartView™ module makes climate information accessible from a single platform. All the data is stored to ensure that there is a complete climate-history record for the entire process. Having the ability to monitor all room-climate data in real time and on one platform ensures an optimal, healthy hatchery climate at every stage of operation.

How it works

  • SmartView™ can be applied across a wide range of areas – such as egg storage and chick holding rooms, corridors, fluff tunnels, attics and plenums
  • The system comes with a bus system and additional sensors for connection. It is accessible from each connected SmartPro™ incubator
  • SmartView™ allows seamless integration of the room sensors with SmartCenterPro™, which enables alarm notifications, data logging and extended climate graphs

Technical specifications

  • Royal Pas Reform is able to supply customer-specific proposals that include the installation and the required SmartView™ configuration, based on the rooms to be included and the functionality required
  • Installation is implemented on a project basis – to ensure that the scope, quality and training needs for the individual hatchery are met fully. As a result, we can give our customers a customized, tailor-made solution that exactly meets their needs
  • This solution is only available when used in combination with SmartCenterPro™
