The electrical network of a livestock farm must be controlled just like every other management parameter. Indeed, this network is likely to generate leakage current; the latter is electric current from sources outside the farm, which flows on the farm’s grounding network or leakage current from internal sources, which comes from equipment or network faults. The electrical network can also generate mid-range frequency currents. These are currents over 60Hz generated by specific equipment, which are also found on the farm’s grounding networks. These currents can have potentially serious impacts on herd performance.

In addition, when connected to a telephone network, the alarm signals can be transferred to a technical support team. Sound and visual alarm signals help guide decision-making with a view to resolving the problem. The products sold by Agrivolt allow the user to effectively manage his electrical network. Displays are integrated in several of our strategic products.

Smart Scan” has the ability to diagnose any circulation of leakage current in the grounding network, to analyze it, to identify the anomalies and alert the User, which results in helping out the preventive maintenance down-time and lost of herd performance. Thus helping to prevent fires or equipment breakdowns by alerting the User to the detected anomaly and if necessary initiating the shedding of a load that could produce a fire or breakdown.


Agrivolt - expertise

Over the course of its involvement in dairy, hog and poultry farms, Agrivolt has developed measurement methods that are well adapted to the specific environment of farms in order to evaluate the presence and quantity of electric current affecting herd performance. Agrivolt proclaims that the electrical network of a livestock farm must be managed in light of it impacts on herd performance and on the operating costs of a livestock farm.

Smart Scan” will revolutionize the monitoring of electrical networks through its ability to detect in real time anomalies, such as arc faults generated by electrical devices, and through its ability to manage energy. Sales Canada: Mr. Carrol Allen1-800 463-3486 ext. 226. We’re ready to take on the Canadian and US markets.



SmartScan has the capacity to predict an electrical failure, therefore could prevent fire risks and equipment failures in commercial buildings but also downtime and equipment failures as well on production assembly lines. Nuvolt has recently made an announcement of OEM sale agreement with a electronic lighting manufacturer for noise filters.
