Once before this, I have declared that using OMRON Digital Temperature Controller would be the most and ultimate application matched with our "Circulated-Air" Mini Incubators. Without any doubt, OMRON eventually works far beyond expectation for giving a very stable temperature within the required range in the chamber.
Our incubator is very much different with purely manual incubators. We are using multi-layer setters and hatching trays, thus require a rapid flow of hot air as well as humidity in the chamber. By having a countinuously flow of these elements supported by a very good and sturdy designed of ball bearing fan, these two parameters work perfectly matched the setting points. As these parameters blow fast enough to be evenly distributed in the chamber, it must also be well supported by a powerful enough heat element. Ordinary bulb will definitely fail to take the task!
However, the pretty design of this OMRON is not really best suiting my incubator design for some special reasons until of late, at least there are three customers faced the problem though several alternatives have been applied to overcome the situation. At least more than 20 sets of incubators were incorporated with Digital Temperature Controller.
Though, I consider the percentage are still within the acceptable range, but as a manufacturer, this shall not be happening at all. It shall be a ZERO DEFECT as no one wish or want to face this problem. In viewing this scenario, Niche Strategy Marketing has made drastic changes to swift to a highly potential "ZERO DEFECT" product by changing to the mostly known thermostat that is specially designed for incubation purposes (in my application standard - not others please!). It is CAEM Thermostat, made in Italy.
After series of testing and detailed studies of CAEM Thermostat, it is powerful enough to directly drive a single piece of 600 watt heater elements. Not olny because of the contact rating is high enough for the application, but also due to the unique features available within this CAEM thermostat. Among others are:
- The operating range is very low, from 4 - 40 Degree Celcius.Dail knob or tuning knob scales is wide enough and made it very easy to match the required setting point..
- Higher contact rating - suitable to directly drive the load
- High accuracy as compared to the majority of thermostat used by many incubator manufacturer.
- Equipped with the "Tuning knob/screw" to enable a more accurate output.
- Moderate and reasonable pricing
- Good looking and appealing
- Smooth and gentle feeling when turning the knob make you feel very confident when adjusting.
- The scale were clearly printred on the knob, very sharpand very obvious.
Back to the new controller.
Our incubators are designed using a fully automatic eggs turner. Super-fine turning. Ones can view how this incubator works by clicking the video placed on the side bar of this blog. Until today for about a year we are producing this incubators, threre was none of the customers complaining the malfunction of this egg turner. THANKS to MICROCHIP for bringing this superb technology, coupling with the experiences gathered through out my life.
I ought to say that I will be continuing using this technology by adding more features and ranges to the different kinds of incubators, from a smaller type matching the real hobby types as well as the real poultry scales incubators.
Nowadays, more and more potetial customers come and approach us for having same understanding of producing big scale manufacturing. For those out there - I am just a simple person. Thank you for supporting us all these while. Your views and comments are benifecial to us. I view all of your proposals in the best manner possible.
Hopefully Allah will prolong our lives for a better reasons, thus we will think wisely, and leave the rest to Allah to determine ouf fate. May Allah bless us all and hopefully the success of each and every one our bussiness is near to come. Be patient and always "ISTIGHAFAR".
