BinTrac® Breeder Control

The BinTrac® Breeder Control when used in place of a standard BinTrac Indicator, provides output control for batching programmed amounts into or out of a weigh bin.

 

  • Accurately batch programmed amounts
  • Eliminate in-line weigh hoppers and separate weigh bins
  • Accurately monitor bin inventory

The same great accuracy and reliability you expect with the features you have grown accustomed to.

  • No field Calibration required
  • Automatically detects and logs FILLS and USAGE
  • 1-year Lightning Warranty on load cells

BinTrac® Breeder Control Configurations

The BinTrac® Breeder Control can be used in place of a standard BinTrac® Indicator
and has four different types of configurations.

  • Gain-in-weight (Load Batch Method)

    The BinTrac® Breeder Control allows the user to select the amount of feed required for the day. The control activates a fill system to deliver feed from the Inventory Bin to the Weigh Bin. The Weigh Bin is equipped with load cells to weigh the incoming feed. Once the total amount of feed (Gross Weight) is loaded into the Weigh Bin, the Breeder Control shuts down the incoming fill line.

  • Loss-in-weight (Unload Batch Method)

    In a single bin system, the BinTrac® Breeder Control allows the user to select the amount of feed required for the day. The Control enables the hopper/feed line fill system to draw feed directly from the bin until the required amount of feed has been delivered into the house. When the total amount of feed has been delivered, the Breeder Control shuts down the feed delivery system.

  • Inventory Bin with Dual Breeder Unloads

    Dual Breeder Consoles can be connected to a single inventory bin for programmed batching of two independent amounts on separate delivery systems. The system can be used for both Rooster (Master) and Hen (Remote) feeding by enabling/disabling the appropriate feed delivery system. Features an Auto/manual override feature for each auger via external switch.

  • Weigh Bin with Dual Breeder Consoles
    for Programmed Fill and Batch Configuration

    This configuration provides automated filling and batching of Hen feed using a weigh bin. A Remote Breeder Console provides automated filling of a programmed gross weight amount into a weigh bin. A Master Breeder Console provides automated loss-in-weight batching of a programmed amount for the Hen feeding. Auto/manual override feature for each auger via external switch.

BinTrac® Breeder Control Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I set it up to batch at a specific time of day?

    The Breeder Control has a internal clock and can be programmed to start a batch at any time of day and repeat each day at the same time.

  • Can I batch out of my inventory bin and eliminate my weigh bin or weigh hopper?

    The Breeder Control with the BinTrac® bin weighing system placed on your inventory bin can batch programmed amounts out of your inventory bin.   This eliminates the need for an extra weigh bin or in-house weigh hopper.   The ability to batch out of the inventory bin allows users to accurately monitor their feed inventory at the site.

  • How does the BinTrac® Breeder Control work with my feeding system?

    The Breeder Control works with most feeding systems.  It can be interlocked with your feeding system to allow feeding until the batch amount is met and at which time it disables the feedline from running.  The in-house feeder limit switches can start and stop feed lines without interrupting a batch.  Breeder stays in batch run mode until the programmed batch amount is reached.

  • Can I program my own batch size or are these pre-defined?

    At any time you can manually program a batch amount and initiate a batch.   The batch amount is retained between batches and can easily be adjusted.   A scheduled batch can also be programmed which is repeated each day for the same amount, but can easily be adjusted.

  • How often do I need to calibrate the system?

    The BinTrac® bin weighing system uses precision calibrated loadcells (calibrated for temperature, output, linearity, and zero) that eliminates the need to calibrate like many mechanical systems. While these mechanical systems are affected temperature and sticktion due to mechanical movement, BinTrac® bin weighing systems are not.
