Working with all four OPI monitoring and control system options, the OPI moisture cable is a valuable tool for your advanced grain management system. Monitor temperature, humidity and grain moisture content throughout the bin to manage all in-bin drying and conditioning applications. Combine with Integris Pro automated control system for the highest degree of moisture control and accuracy on the market. The OPI moisture cable has sensors placed on the cable—commonly at 4’ intervals in farm applications and 6’ intervals in commercial applications. Moisture cables are used in grain depths up to 85’. Each sensor consists of a relative humidity sensor encapsulated in a sintered filter that protects the sensor from dust and contamination, while allowing for instantaneous readings. By measuring the relative humidity and temperature in the airspace around the grain, we are able to calculate grain moisture content with a high degree of accuracy.
Each sensor also includes a temperature sensor, so that temperature, relative humidity and moisture content can be read throughout the grain.
StorMax Retractable Temperature Cables
The StorMax retractable temperature cable leverages industry-leading digital technology to record and provide vital grain condition data to your StorMax, Integris Basic, Integris Pro or OPI Blue Advanced Grain Management systems. Based on bin size, one or more temperature cables are installed, typically with sensors at 4′ or 6′ spacing throughout the bin. What makes the StorMax retractable temperature cable so unique is our exclusive retractable sensing element, which is protected inside a sturdy outer tube. This unique design combined with digital technology provides multiple benefits including:
- Highly accurate to within 0.5°C or 1.0°F
- Easy to install and serviceable by the customer
- Easy to service whether the bin is empty or full, eliminating any downtime
- Highly scalable to work with your current system, as well as future upgrades as your needs change
StorMax Retractable Temperature Cables are available in three sizes (Medium Duty, Commercial Duty and Heavy Duty).
