CONNECTED WINEGROWING-WINEMAKING WITH PELLENC CONNECT
The new unique equipment monitoring platform is available for the PELLENC Group’s vineyard and winery machines, making life easier for the user and optimising the operation of all the equipment.
PELLENC CONNECT also provides users with data about their machines, as well as agronomic and oenological data in real time for greater fluidity and responsiveness. This solution optimises the organisation of operations in the vineyard and the winery and allows the operator to perform the necessary tasks on the machines faster thanks to direct communication via the platform.
PELLENC CONNECT helps users better understand their production and raise their objectives in terms of the final product.
The addition of the OPTIMUM carrier telemetry option enables automatic and secure data feedback from sensors installed on the carrier and the attached tool. The processing of these data on the PELLENC CONNECT CLOUD allows the customer and the distributor to benefit from key information to optimise and streamline the use and monitoring of the machines.
With the telemetry option on the OPTIMUM, monitor your fleet of equipment in real time thanks to the data collected on the carrier and the coupled tool. View remotely on a tablet, PC, or smartphone:
- the locations of the various machines.
- the settings of the carrier and the coupled tool.
- maintenance reminders.
- fault codes.
You can plan ahead for maintenance and servicing to ensure maximum productivity throughout the year, especially during the harvest season. It also makes it easier to stay on top of things during intensive periods by providing real-time access to the machine settings, the monitoring of the work done, and so on. When the job is finished, statistics such as the number of hours of operation, fuel consumption, and work rate can be checked in the dedicated tab on the PELLENC CONNECT platform.
Are you using an Internet-connected optimum carrier? To ensure fast and efficient customer service, the technicians of our distribution network can remotely access
- the on-board diagnostic information directly from PELLENC CONNECT.
- the history of fault codes on the machine.
With your OPTIMUM multifunction carrier, optimise the monitoring and management of your vineyard using the agronomic data collected in the plots during work.
OPTIMUM lets you generate:
- Yield maps during the harvest
- Plant health maps during pre-pruning
The maps generated make it possible to optimise the potential of the vineyard plots by precisely controlling the following operations: fertilisation, pruning management, irrigation, phytosanitary spraying, replacement of plants, soil analyses, etc.
During the harvest, the continuous weighing of the yield harvested in each area of the vineyard makes it possible to obtain a yield map.
With the PREMIUM weighing option, you can also see the quantity of grapes on PELLENC CONNECT:
• currently in the bins
• harvested in each plot
*Prerequisite: telemetry unit option.
The map is generated during pre-pruning via the sensor used on VISIO for the automatic opening at the posts on the TLVP pre-pruner. It also records the number and diameter of the vine shoots.
**Prerequisite: VISIO on TLVP + telemetry unit option.
The PELLENC CONNECT platform strengthens the link between the vineyard and the winery by means of the following services:
- Information sharing to simplify the management of supply flows (e.g. optimising the filling of tanks and presses)
- Remote monitoring of equipment use
- Remote visualisation of the equipment settings in the distribution fleet, as well as diagnostic data
- Visualisation of all process information
- Maintenance interval reminders
- Fault alerts
- History of the use of the equipment and the associated settings in order to carry out a technical and economic analysis all the way “from the vineyard to the tank”.
PELLENC CONNECT brings peace of mind to users while optimising their activity: equipment management and monitoring of operations from the vineyard to the winery.
