Temperature Measurement & Control

Maintaining the proper ambient and floor temperature


Floor Temperature probe


Concrete temperature has big impact on early performance especially mortality, weight gain and flock uniformity.

7 Day mortality increases to 1.31% from 0.96% when the concrete temperature at placement is less than 28° C

7 Day weight increases from 171g to 186g when concrete temperature at placement is greater than 28° C

Final weight increases to 2.142g from 2.098g (on average) when the concrete temperature at placement is greater than 28° C

As concrete temperature increases, feed intake follows. The maximum concrete temperature should be 32° C.  A higher temperature will lead to a feed intake decrease and at 35° C stops altogether.

Perfect concrete temp will be 32° C

The best way to measure concrete/litter is every 6 meters in length of poultry house in three rows across the width of the house.

Maintaining the proper ambient and floor temperature ensures chicks stay healthy and reach their full potential.

With our Temperature Probe for floor temperature and Temperature Logger for ambient temperature, we can provide the data for optimal control.

ARCC Thermo

ARCC Thermo is an application ready, Sigfox enabled transceiver allowing the transmission and management of temperature and humidity sensor data.

ARCC Thermo provides connection to national and global network infrastructure for reliable and secure communications.

The configuration of the transceiver can be done via the product or network allowing the choice of periodicity, alerting and data encryption.

ARCC Thermo further supports a downlink function to the device for switching functionality. Powered through a Li-SOCL2 battery, it allows standard autonomy of up to 10 years.

Typical Applications:

  • Cold chain management
  • Smart city and buildings
  • Smart agriculture


Litter Tip


The chick is highly dependent upon the manager to provide the correct litter temperature. If the litter and air temperatures are too cold, internal body temperature will decrease, leading to increased huddling, decreased activity, reduced feed and water intake, stunted growth and susceptibility to disease.
