Control

With the Argos control unit, we can offer you one of the smartest control units available on the market today. Years of intensive R&D-development resulted in a smart, easy-to-use control unit, which makes your everyday work easier. Argos is the ultimate choice regardless if you choose a horizontal tank or a vertical silo tank from Wedholms. If you are looking for a more basic version of a control unit with fewer functions for your horizontal tank, WinMaster CL2 might be an option. For our open tanks, we offer WinCool, a simple control unit with all functions needed for a manual milk cooling tank.

    Argos control system

    Our intelligent control system Argos makes your everyday work a bit easier. To further promote the milk cooling process, the Argos control system provides excellent conditions for efficient agitation and temperature control. Functions for agitation, cooling and cleaning are easily overviewed and controlled via the user-friendly display. Argos has been developed to provide convenient control of all milk tank functions, resulting in increased security and cost efficiency in your milk production. The user-friendly menu has a logical structure in different levels, from basic every-day functions to seldom-used advanced operations. The menu is available in a wide range of languages.

    Argos also includes advanced built-in alarm functions, alerting for any malfunction in the system. As an additional option, Argos can be programmed to communicate with automatic milking systems, as well as to provide remote access and SMS alerts. One thing that makes Argos unique is the fact that there is one dedicated button for the milk tank driver to control the entire emptying-process of the tank. This of course almost eliminates the risk for mistakes.

    Using the software Argos Navigator, the farmer, advisor or technician can get access to the cooling data in multiple ways; via a USB cable, a local network on the farm, or through the Internet. With the addition of the option Milk Tank Manager, all processes can be monitored and controlled on distance from a computer or mobile device. The farmer can also grant access to external persons like an advisor or a service technician.
