Key Vat-Man Features
DTS Vat-Man gives you real-information about your milk vat, so you know what is happening in the vat, no matter where you are.
- Choose your setup for the milking pit, the office or off the farm.
- Online customisable dashboard to see your key data in real-time
- Check on the performance of a particular piece of equipment on the vat or within the milk cooling system
Set up alerts so you know when there is a problem, react quickly and minimise potential losses. You can also check on the vat system while milking with an in-shed display, highlighting milk volume and temperatures as well as the vat agitator status.
Vat-Man’s dedicated, secure cloud-based platform uses the Internet of Things to share key data with you, your on-farm staff or external consultants. By monitoring these assets, you can enjoy numerous benefits:
- Milk temperature measurement to ensure regulations are met.
- Real-time milk volume measurement.
- Proactive alerts on key equipment that mitigates the risk of catastrophic failures.
