Granary Environment Intelligent Monitoring Solution
1. System Overview
With the rapid development and application of the Internet of Things technology in China, the application of the Internet of Things technology to the agriculture and warehousing industry and the realization of intelligent, unmanned and intensive management of agricultural production and warehousing will inevitably accelerate the agricultural technology development. Granary as a major event related to national economy and people's livelihood, naturally demands new technology development. The establishment of an intelligent monitoring system for the temperature and humidity of the granary is of practical significance for the realization of efficient and cost-effective management.
Through the development of a set of intelligent monitoring systems for the grain storage environment based on the Internet of Things technology, real-time monitoring of the temperature, and humidity and CO2 concentration of each distributed grain storage is realized. Conducting real-time control of the work of on-site air conditioners, fans, dehumidifiers and other equipment to achieve the on-site environment indicators are within acceptable ranges. Enabling the intelligent control and monitoring of the grain silo will inevitably reduce storage costs, improve management efficiency, and forward grain silo management.
2. System Composition
The system is mainly composed of the following parts: on-site collection and control equipment, data communication equipment, system server, and control management software system.
On-site acquisition and control equipment includes: data acquisition unit, equipment control unit, and alarm equipment unit.
Data communication equipment includes: Internet of things gateway, network router.
System server includes: Intel CPU server based on X86 architecture
The control and management software system includes: server-side management software and mobile terminal APP.
Based on the Internet of Things technology, the system organizes various parts of the system organically through Ethernet and ZigBee, WIFI and other network forms to accomplish data collection, transmission and device control.
3. Operation mode
For the system operation mode, users can choose the specific operation mode according to the system construction and the actual situation of the granary:
Personnel manual control
The system only collects the temperature, humidity, CO2 concentration and other information in the granary as needed, and uploads the information to the system for the reference of the granary management personnel. According to their own experience, the managers control the operation of the on-site cooling, ventilation and dehumidification equipment on the system. This control method has lower requirements on the system and simpler operation, but it has certain requirements on the knowledge and experience of the management personnel. It can be used as a pragmatic option in the early stages of system construction before the system functions are imperfect and reliability is not fully verified. Or it can be used as a backup solution in case of system maintenance, upgrade, or other abnormal conditions.
