Central
control system

For ten years now HSR Heutrocknung has been developing intelligent control systems to automate the entire drying process. The key point here is the efficiency of drying. On the basis of Measurement values from a variety of temperature and humidity sensors the control system determines which type of operation (indoor air, fresh air or mixed air) is most effective.

HSR Heutrocknung offers a wide variety of different control systems for different applications

15 Highlights

Elite regulation

Elite regulation

Elite regulation (or the Elite control system) allows you to adjust the wind speed as required. A further step towards energy-efficacy and low drying costs has been achieved with the HSR software module, the Vario Elite anemometer, which is installed as standard.

24 hour interval drying

24 hour interval drying

24 hour interval drying gives you individual control of all the drying boxes.  The 12" control system makes up to 30 intervals available to the farmer. We always recommend interval operation for large volumes of input.

Stall times

Stall times

For specific times, when the power supply system is shared with other current collectors (e.g. with the hay crane or milking robot) stall times can be defined, during which the dehumidifier and the fan are operated in economy mode.

Calculating drying time

Calculating drying time

We calculate the planned drying times by means of the intake of the import volume and the yield per ha. This has the great advantage that, as the hay is imported, it can be determined whether it will be possible to dry the hay in less than 80 hours.

Calculation in accordance with HX

Calculation in accordance with HX

Calculation using the HX diagram takes into account temperature and humidity, as well as the "storage capacity of the air". This feature improves the productivity of the control system.

Trend recording

Trend recording

All sensor values are displayed and stored in the control system to ensure the smooth analysis and evaluation of the success of the drying process. These values help the farmer to optimise his hay drying process from year to year.

Upgrade of new features in older control systems

The key component of HSR air dehumidifiers is the central control system, which we have developed. Over the last ten years we have continually been expanding the functions of this control system. Based on the know-how of farmer and founder of the firm, Josef Reindl the central control system is in addition now expanded and optimised on the basis of feedback from more than 1,000 customers.

So that our loyal customers may benefit from the further developments, we always endeavour to make innovations available as updates (software updates and hardware updates). You can have the following features upgraded (see table below).  Your representative is there to support you in deciding the details of your completed project and to give you a quotation.

Helpful additional features and modules

In order to relieve the daily workload, both the large 12" central control system and the 5.7" central control system offer a range of features, which are activated as standard in the control system. In addition there are useful features, which have been designed for specific user requirements. These are:

 

Offset display

Offset display

The display from the dehumidifier is installed in a separate metal housing (approx. 55 x 40 x 15 cm). This housing can be mounted in a position of your choice.* This may be at the entrance to the hay barn or in your farmhouse. *The dehumidifier and the offset display are connected through a data cable, the required length of which must be clarified with our sales department.

Exhaust air window

Exhaust air window

Depending on the control system an exhaust air window per barn or an exhaust air window per hay box can be controlled. The corresponding specific control system is activated by means of the exhaust air window module.

Generator start / waste heat utilisation

Generator start / waste heat utilisation

The emergency power generator on the Vario Elite is controlled by a start/stop module with appropriate after-running cycles. Vario Elite+ regulates the targeted drying area in use fully automatically via various shutters and in this way feeds in waste heat. Indicators such as fuel are displayed on the generator - also in a mobile version with HSR Connect. Because use is different for individual purposes and depends on the generator used, we recommend that you contact our sales team.

Cable winch module

Cable winch module

The cable winch module makes it possible for the cable winch to be operated for an exhaust air window or similar. The cable winch is already included in the cable winch module. Under our warranty cable winches from third-party suppliers may not be operated with our control system.

Auxiliary heating system

Auxiliary heating system

Additional heating by means of a heat coil or a domestic heating system makes the drying process even more effective. The auxiliary heating system module, which we offer, allows the relevant components to be integrated into the drying process. Please contact our sales force for detailed advice.

Fault message via lamp or by SMS to mobile phone

Fault message via lamp or by SMS to mobile phone

The fault message module has a signal light or SMS function, which warns the hay drying operator of malfunctions in the drying process.

Box drying and round bale drying

The VARIO Comfort control system (12“ und 5.7“) dries loose hay, round bales, wood, maize, cereals and much more. When purchasing, please specify the relevant material to be dried and this will be updated in the control system during initial commissioning. In various computer programs the drying temperature and drying period are adapted for drying loose hay, round bales, wood, etc.

Tray drying

Tray drying can be used for drying herbs, hemp or tobacco. In this process the material to be dried is spread out on different trays, which are then also dried in accordance with pre-defined programs. The temperature and humidity sensors installed detect the corresponding real values.

As long ago as 2011 HSR Heutrocknung designed its first herb drying plant. Continuous further development and intensive discussions with the drying plant operators are continually improving our herb drying plant.

More information on herb drying - Bergsmann Farm Project is available in our hay blog.
