The CIMA kit for agriculture 4.0
High Tech news at CIMA. The Pavia-based company (headquartered in Montù Beccaria) has announced the debut of the agriculture 4.0 kit developed by its Research and Development department. The kit - explains the Lombardy company with a technical note - was designed specifically for CIMA atomizers with EPA technology (the acronym refers to the italian terms for distribution proportional to forward progress). It is available with a management software that can send to the machine the work parameters such as the row width, the number of rows to be treated, l/ha to distribute and the speed of work. Thanks to this information, the software can provide the data for the correct setting of the flow regulator, thus ensuring compliance with the parameters set by the operator. During the treatment - we read in the CIMA technical note - the on-board computer records and displays all operational data in real time; at the end of the day, or at the end of the specific treatment, the user can send the data (via GSM network) to a cloud computing device. The user can thus remotely access all the information relating to the completed treatment (average dose, litres of mixture used, hectares treated, overall and actual work working times, and GPS recording of the route). Once archived, the data can be used to optimize the management of the company fleet, with great benefits from the point of view of profitability, sustainability and reliability of the work.
