CALGARY, Alberta--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OPI™ announces the addition of Remote Fan Control for OPI Blue that will take storage management to a whole new level. With the ability to remotely manage stored grain assets from anywhere at any time, grain producers can increase harvesting efficiencies, optimize grain value, reduce costs and increase market opportunities.
“It is increasingly important for farmers to minimize shrink and optimize the quality of their stored grain,” says Dave Crompton, CEO, OPIsystems™ Inc. “With the addition of this system, growers will get the most from their grain investment, along with peace of mind and the ability to optimize product and grow margins.”
Remote Fan Control complements the industry leading OPI Blue Wireless system that delivers hourly grain storage information to a grower’s mobile or desktop device. The Remote Fan Control helps growers avoid losses due to mold, insects, hot spots or general degradation as it monitors, responds or controls conditions occurring inside the bin from anywhere at any time.
“Technology constantly advances and changes the way we grow. With sustainable efficiencies like our new automation of Remote Fan Control, we are entering a new era of grain storage management that allows farmers to manage and optimize their stored grain without the time, effort or demand of physically being there,” says Crompton.
According to OPI, there are 2.6 billion tonnes of grains produced globally, with up to 30 percent lost or degraded through post-harvest. Much of this loss is due to the lack of grain storage management. With properly designed storage systems and the integration of advanced technology like the Remote Control Fan system, these losses can be significantly reduced for individual growers and the sustainability of grain production worldwide.
