Feeding: Equipment


The most innovative solution for programming and managing all of the aspects of a modern Farm: from programming Recipes for Feeding preparation, from distributing meals to statistical analysis.

i-Vision is an advanced professional organizer designed to be installed inside the truck or self-propelled mixer wagon cabins. Equipped with a powerful software, 5.7" TFT colour display and Jog Dial, it has been designed to have complete and intuitive functions.
Its distinguishing technology that makes it so simple to use is based on a powerful ARM9 processor managed by an Embedded Linux operating system. This allows the application to receive, manage and process weighing data provided by the i-Weight device and communicate with the vehicle devices through a CAN network with SAE J1939 protocol.
i-Weight is a weight transmitter that holds the functions of an ARM7 microprocessor and a new 24-Bit Sigma-Delta A/D converter housed inside an aluminium Case with an IP65 degree of protection. Equipped with a ''dovetail'' fixing system, it is mounted outside the truck or self-propelled mixing wagon. 


  • 5.7" Sharp TFT colour display with LED backlighting for optimal visibility even in the event of direct sunlight exposure or in poorly lit environments.
  • Possibility of saving an endless number of Recipes, Ingredients, Groups, Clean-Ups and ID Codes.
  • Possibility of programming Recipes by Totals or by Animals Number.
  • Management of left-over food in the stable (Clean-Up).
  • Possibility of programming master data with the saved elements.
  • Possibility of programming the Dry Matter (dry substance) of each Ingredient.
  • Possibility of programming the Appetite Percentage of each Animal Group in order to quickly reduce or increase the amount to distribute to the single Group.
  • Possibility of programming the Recipes in relation to the dry substance (Dry Weight) of the Ingredients.
  • Possibility of associating an Identification code to each Recipe, to facilitate weighing operation traceability.
  • Possibility of programming the Feeding Factor of each Recipe in order to quickly modify the programmed values.
  • Unloads Adjustment Function allows correcting the amount to unload from the Groups automatically in relation to the actual loaded amount.
  • Ration Balancing Function to correct the amount of Ingredients to load in relation to the amount of the first Ingredient effectively loaded.
  • Reload Function, at the end of the Loads, allows dosing the remaining parts of the Ingredients/Clean-Ups that have not been fully loaded.
  • Daily Recipe Function to programme the Rations of the entire day in a single solution.
  • Possibility of programming the Mixing Time and Manual Additions within the Recipe to optimise food preparation.
  • Possibility of carrying out a Recipe without following Ingredient and Group programming order.
  • Tolerance Function to check that Feeding is carried out within the required limits.
  • Power-Fail Function allows resuming the Recipe from where it has been interrupted, after a power outage.
  • Possibility of viewing and printing 7 different Reports to make sure the Farm is operating well.
  • Possibility of exchanging data with a Personal Computer through a USB flash drive or GSM/GPRS modem in FTP mode.
  • Possibility of performing the data backup on the USB flash drive.
  • Possibility of interfacing a video camera.
  • Possibility of viewing the main motor operating parameters transmitted to Bus J1939.
  • Statistical Data Storage regarding equipment use for a real control on weighing system use.
  • Extended multilingual Help Messages and Displays to guide the operator in using the equipment.
  • Sleep Function to reduce energy consumption when the equipment is not active.
  • Practical fastening with RAM-MOUNT swivel supports, which can absorb intense vibrations.
  • Possibility of product customisation.
