Portable Temperature Monitoring for Grain

Ideal for Piles, Warehouses, Railcars, Trucks, and Ships



Digital temperature sensor lances and portable handheld readers make it easy and affordable to monitor the temperature of grains (hay or silage, too).

Detect hot spots and spoilage in grain where cables are either impossible to install, cost prohibitive, or just needed on a temporary basis.

This solution requires no power, no installation, and can be set up quickly and easily. Simply insert the lance into the grain, wait a few minutes, and the current temperature is displayed. Alternatively, up to 20 lances can be inserted and daisy-chained together and left in place for longer term monitoring. Temperature data history can be transferred to a PC using a memory stick that comes with the handheld reader.
