Sensors Frequently Used in Pig Farms


For the pig industry, its production is mainly affected by factors such as breeding breeds, feed types and quality, diseases, growth environment and management level. Among them, the role of environmental factors is particularly prominent, accounting for about 20%-30%. The environmental factors of the pig house include temperature, humidity, noise, light, harmful gases, etc. The important influence of environmental factors on pig production has been confirmed by a large number of scientific experiments and production practices at home and abroad. Professional pig farmers often rely on personal experience to maintain the pig's growing environment and hire enough manpower to clean the pig house regularly. This is both human and financial, and there are no specific predictions and preventive measures for the occurrence of epidemics. There is a huge risk of reproduction.

However, farms that apply the intelligent pig house environmental monitoring system developed by Hunan Rika Technology Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. basically use carbon dioxide concentration detectors, ammonia concentration detectors, and light intensity detectors to detect environmental factors. When the environmental quality changes, the system will link the equipment to automatically adjust the environment, so as to achieve the effect of using the pig farm environmental monitoring system to monitor and control the environment of the farm and the pig farm.

In fact, Hunan Rika Technology Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. tells everyone that there are only 4 sensors commonly used in pig farm environmental monitoring, which can effectively monitor and control the pig farm environment and make pig production reach a normal state. So, which 4 kinds of sensors are these 4 kinds of sensors? The following are listed one by one by Hunan Rika Technology Electronic Technology Co., Ltd.

1. Temperature and humidity sensor:

The temperature and humidity sensor is one of the most commonly used sensors in the Internet of Things. Most environmental monitoring systems require it. By accurately measuring the temperature and humidity in the enclosure, according to the temperature and humidity requirements of animal growth in the enclosure, when the temperature and humidity in the pig house are too high or too low, measures such as cooling, dehumidification or heating are taken. Start humidification in time to ensure reasonable temperature and humidity in the pig house. In the cold winter in the north, it is even more necessary to heat the pigsty and proper heating (such as solar energy, electric stove, boiler heating) and so on.

2. Illumination sensor:

Illumination transmission is used to control light intensity and light time, and adjust light intensity and time. Light has a great influence on the growth of piglets. Extending the light time or increasing the light intensity can enhance the function of the adrenal cortex, improve immunity, promote appetite, enhance the digestive function of piglets, and increase the weight gain rate and survival rate of piglets.

3. Ammonia sensor (ammonia concentration detector):

Ammonia content is very important for pig growth. Ammonia is one of the harmful gases in animal enclosures. The level of ammonia concentration will directly affect the growth and development of animals and their ability to resist viruses. The general ammonia sensor is equipped with a buzzer alarm device. When the ammonia concentration exceeds the standard, the buzzer will sound an alarm to remind the management personnel that the ammonia concentration needs to be adjusted.

4. (CO2 concentration tester):

The concentration of carbon dioxide is also important for pig growth. Too high carbon dioxide content in pig farms will cause long-term hypoxia, weak physique, and susceptibility to various chronic infectious diseases. The carbon dioxide detector with digital display function can intuitively see the concentration of carbon dioxide in the home.

The environmental adjustment of the pig farm can be divided into temperature and humidity adjustment (which can be achieved through the temperature and humidity monitoring system), the adjustment of harmful gases and the adjustment of light intensity. The above-mentioned sensors are commonly used in pig farms. After being linked with smart devices, it can be called a pig house environment detection system. The establishment of a pig house environmental inspection system can increase more profits.
