Immediately identifies sources of damage and bruising
The BeetLog Electronic Sugar beet identifies damage and bruise causes in all types of sugar beet handling machinery.
The operator watches the BeetLog passing through a machine and its Bluetooth technology links to an Android app to help immediately indicate sources of impact.
BeetLog enables immediate improvements to quality problems in sugar beet production.
BeetLog assists with the prevention of economic losses caused by bruising.
How does BeetLog work?
The BeetLog connects to an Android tablet via Bluetooth. The app gives users the ability to see in real time the shocks received by the BeetLog. Operators can accurately identify the location and severity of the shock and quickly decide whether remedial work is needed.
Operators can select their own reporting thresholds, so small shocks show up as a green alert, intermediate ones as orange and severe ones as red. Each alert is accompanied by a different audible alarm.
The recorded data can be viewed in real time and can be viewed in different forms such as tables or graphs.
Suited to testing all sugar beet harvesting and handling situations
Interpretation of Results
Sugar beet damage is related to impact, but variety, temperature and growing conditions all affect how much bruising occurs at a given impact.
BeetLog doesn’t measure damage levels in real sugar beet, but the user can interpret the impact information and change machine settings to reduce impact levels and minimise damage.
PC software allows detailed analysis of impact records
Why use BeetLog as part of quality control procedures?
BeetLog assists with the prevention of economic losses caused by bruising
BeetLog enables immediate improvements to quality problems in sugar beet production
BeetLog can provide peace of mind that quality standards are being maintained
BeetLog should be used regularly so that bruising problems caused by poor machine maintenance or incorrect settings can be detected quickly. Machine settings are often changed, but the effects on bruising may not be realised. A quick check with BeetLog can make sure.
Who can benefit from using BeetLog?
Sugar beet growers, producers and processors
Manufacturers of harvesting and post-harvesting machinery
Agronomists and Crop Consultants
Research and development technicians
