BarnTalk Wireless Bird Scale


How it fits into the BarnTalk system:

The Bird Scale connects wirelessly to the BarnTalk Gateway. It MUST be used in conjunction with MTech's SONAR platform. The Bird Scale Sensor should be placed within ~700 feet of the BarnTalk Gateway. On multi-barn sites, the Bird Scale Sensor’s range can often extend across multiple buildings depending on proximity. We recommend two scales for typical houses, and three scales for larger houses.

  • Raw data is processed by MTech’s SONAR
  • Collects up to 7,000 raw readings per day (~500/hour)
  • For birds from 1 day old to 9 lbs.
