Store Control: Grain Fan Assist
Store Control, from Evans and Pearce, takes a novel look at Differential Temperature Control for grain storage.
The Store Control system turns standard grain ventilation fans into smart fans that can automate the cooling of your crops without the need for costly electrical installation and annual data hosting charges.
Standard grain ventilation fans can be fitted with the Grain Fan Assist unit which will turn them into a smart fan capable of running the store for you. Grain temperature is monitored via a 2m long spear and the ambient air temperature is monitored via a sensor on the Store Control box itself.
Differential temperature is easily set and then the fan will switch itself on every time the air is cold enough to effectively cool the crop.
If the grain store has additional ventilation fans to introduce clean air into the building the Extraction Fan Assist unit will wirelessly turn these on as well. An additional receiver unit will detect when any of the grain ventilation fans is in operation and will ensure the building extraction fans are working.
· Can be fitted to new or existing fans.
· Minimal, if any, input from an electrical contractor to automate your store.
· Wireless; so only power cable to fan, no additional cabling in store.
· Each fan reacts to condition of grain immediately around it, so no additional costs for store zoning.
· Fan will display crop temperature so no need for additional sampling.
· Fan running hours recorded so electricity usage easily calculated.
· Store automation costing easy, no hidden charges or ongoing license fees.
· Send fans back to us and we will return to you a smart fan ready to run your store.

Grain Fan Assist display
The advantage of this system is:
Utilise existing fans you already own.
Each fan reacts to grain conditions around it.
Robust circuitry reduces the incidence of low voltage damage.
Grain stores become automated with limited or no involvement from an electrician.
Zoning of the store is simple.
Store extraction fans automated wirelessly from grain cooling fans.
No hidden costs or ongoing service charges.
The control panel
Our Grain Fan Assist unit is also available as a retro fit to existing single phase fan units. Once the unit is fitted the fan then becomes a “smart fan” and detects when ambient conditions are optimum for cooling. The unit has a clear LCD display and buttons to make programming simple and fast.
