Benefits of the AgriShift® Controllers:

  • Precise and consistent
  • Improves animal welfare
  • Fully automatic control or manual options
  • Schedule up to 500 days divided into 20 periods
  • Optional remote control with standard 0-10V bus
  • Program timed or temporary dimming override
  • Asymmetric program capability
  • Incremental dimming

The Science

The AgriShift® Master Controller and Slave Dimmer provide full potential to any ONCE® lighting fixture. They offer smooth dimming solutions that can easily be controlled manually with the front panel controls or remotely with a 0-10 VDC control signal.  

The integrated Slave Dimmer is used alongside the Master Controller. Together they offer several advanced features giving added flexibility while addressing the complex needs of today’s modern agriculture facilities.

Advanced Technology

Dimming Enhances Flock Performance

Because animals are sensitive to different light intensities and colors of the light spectrum, performance and health can be improved simply by controlling it. Close attention to photoperiods and elimination of lighting anomalies have been shown to increase production outputs while reducing stress and negative effects on animals, enhancing overall flock performance.

Artificial lighting programs must be applied with a thorough understanding of an animal’s physiological response to light and an incorporation of various characteristics that are sensitive to the way they interact with such lighting programs. ONCE® proprietary SIAM Technology® applies three key aspects we believe best improves animal welfare and optimizes production through artificial lighting for commercial agricultural facilities: 

  1. Spectrum: The whole range of visible light with respect to its wavelength or frequency
  2. Irradiance: The power of electromagnetic radiation per unit area (radiative flux) on a surface
  3. Modulation: Transitioning from one level to another

When using the AgriShift® Master Controller or Slave Dimmer to follow a ONCE® recommended lighting program, you’re providing your animal with smooth dimming and an optimized light spectrum at designated light levels throughout the day/production cycle. Not only are you maximizing your overall return on investment, you’ll also experience reduced mortality, improved feed conversion, faster weight gain, reduced stress and other beneficial welfare and productivity enhancements in your animal.
