Benefits of the AgriShift® Controller:
• Precise and consistent dimming
• Easily controlled by two separate 0-10V inputs
• Offers several advanced features, adding flexibility
• Eliminates lighting anomalies to increase production
• Universal input power
• Improves animal welfare
The AgriShift® Controller is a second generation slave dimmer unit that provides full potential to any ONCE® lighting fixture. It offers smooth dimming solutions that can easily be controlled by two separate 0-10 VDC control signals.
The integrated AgriShift® Controller offers several advanced features giving added flexibility while addressing the complex needs of today’s modern agriculture facilities.
Dimming Enhances Flock Performance
Because animals are sensitive to different light intensities and colors of the light spectrum, performance and health can be improved simply by controlling it. Close attention to photoperiods and elimination of lighting anomalies have been shown to increase production outputs while reducing stress and negative affects on animals, enhancing overall flock performance.
AgriShift® Controller Technology
Light in Commercial Agriculture Facilities
Artificial lighting programs must be applied with a thorough understanding of an animal’s physiological response to light and an incorporation of various characteristics that are sensitive to the way they interact with such lighting programs. ONCE® proprietary SIAM Technology® applies three key aspects we believe best improves animal welfare and optimizes production through artificial lighting for commercial agricultural facilities:
- Spectrum: The whole range of visible light with respect to its wavelength or frequency
- Irradiance: The power of electromagnetic radiation per unit area (radiative flux) on a surface
- Modulation: Transitioning from one lever to another
When using the AgriShift® Controller to follow a ONCE® recommended lighting program, you’re providing your animal with smooth dimming and an optimized light spectrum at designated light levels through out the day/production cycle. Not only are you maximizing your overall return on investment, you’ll also experience reduced mortality, improved feed conversion, faster weight gain, reduced stress and other beneficial welfare and productivity enhancements in your animal.
