Alarm Systems

For the highest security standards in your pig house

Modern houses for pig production are being constantly equipped with more technical management aids. Automated processes are responsible for feed and water supply as well as climate control. This dependence on technology is increasing every day. Installing technical devices for monitoring and notification purposes is therefore an absolute necessity. Farm managers can react instantly in case of problems and are able to prevent damage in a reliable manner. Big Dutchman alarm systems raise the bar regarding functionality and security requirements.

AC Touch

For the highest security standards

With the AC Touch, Big Dutchman introduces a new generation of alarm systems. Instead of a key, AC Touch is accessed by means of a fingerprint sensor. This ensures that changes to settings and acknowledged alarms can be tracked back to the responsible person with absolute certainty; a great advantage on farms with multiple employees. Furthermore, the alarm device is easy to use thanks to a large color display. All alarm inputs and functions are displayed clearly and can be easily adjusted. Another important feature of the AC Touch is the “black box”, which cannot be deleted and saves all alarms and activities.

Alarm notifications and acknowledgement

Up to five telephone numbers can be called and/or notified via SMS. Managers can determine in which order these numbers are contacted and rearrange the order easily. Specific languages can be set for each number and test calls can be performed. AC Touch gives you the option to acknowledge these alerts via mobile phone or fixed line.
