Feed Navigator

Weighing and dosing system with 70mm alpha-numeric LED back-light LCD display for optimal visibility even in the event of direct sunlight exposure or in poorly lit environments. Possibility of programming up to 100 Recipes made up of a maximum of 100 Ingredients and/or Groups (Unloads).


Feed Navigator is the most professional solution available for programming and managing the feeding of a Farm, group of Farms or feeding centre simply and accurately: from programming Recipes for Feeding preparation, from distributing meals to the statistical analysis of consumption and work times.
 
In addition to exchanging data with the Personal Computer by using the Label T-Data8 USB Kit device, it can also be used in wireless mode, thanks to the new Label USB Wireless Linker devices and the Label GSM Modem Base Kit, which allow the quick and safe exchange of data, without leaving the work-station.
 
The new FarmManager 8 software allows the simple transfer of Recipes from the Personal Computer to the Feed Navigator, and also allows the Personal Computer to acquire weighing operation data for a complete analysis of completed activities, in the same simple manner.
