Binmaster has released digital temperature sensor lances and portable handheld readers for monitoring the temperature of grain, hay, or silage. They have been designed for an operate to be able to detect hot spots and spoilage in grain where cables are either impossible to install, cost prohibitive or are just needed on a temporary basis. The rugged digital temperature sensor lance can be used to measure the temperature of grain in piles, warehouses, barns, railcars, wagons, trucks or ships. It can also be used to detect high temperatures in hay or silage that could lead to combustion or compromised quality.
To use, an operator must insert the lance into the grain and the current temperature is displayed on the handheld reader. Alternatively, up to 20 lances can be inserted and daisy-chained together and left in place for longer term monitoring. Temperature data history can be transferred to a PC using a memory stick that comes with the handheld reader.
