TOPO Software and Hardware

PROGRAMMABLE CRITERIA

TOPO SOFTWARE & HARDWARE

TOPO is a straighforward and intuitive system based on Windows CE programming. An easy-to-read dashboard and graphics provide a clear overview of the feed strategy and the current status of the feeding at all times. External data backup is easier than ever before with the use of a USB stick. A backup battery ensures that data is stored reliably in the event of a power outage. The key data and input menus link up to Pig Manager Mobile, allowing the possibility of a 'paperless' sow and feeding management system.

ESF

SIMPLE DESIGN

Reduce stress to animals and staff and lower service costs with the simple and convenient design of ESF. It's easy for animals to acclimate to the feeding process. Workers will find convenient access to necessary components for regular maintenance.
