STICK Total Environmental Control System

The STICK microcomputer controller is the flag ship of the products produced by C F Whaler Ltd and has become an icon within the livestock industry. The user friendly system is operated by a single joystick which allows the farmer to view and adjust all the settings by means of simple menus.

The complete range is available in different formats depending on customer requirements from the small STICK 2 unit for operating existing fan / inlet load centres to large steel enclosures with glass front doors built to the customers own specification.

The STICK is available for a number of applications including:

  • Sequential Fan Controller
  • Variable Speed Fan Control
  • Natural Ventilation (Side only or side and ridge)
  • Wheat Blending and Bird Weighing
  • Feed Distribution and Winch control for Broiler Breeder houses

Large Cabinet Panel

STICK Ventilation controllers offer many functions which enable precise control of:

  • Temperature and Minimum Ventilation - (automatic profile curves each)
  • Heating
  • Humidity
  • Pressure - using up to 4 inlet motors
  • Feeding and Lighting
  • Misting system control

ACNV Type 1

Extra features are also available depending on the type of system including:

  • Temperature Trim - gives better temperature accuracy by gradually trimming air flow
  • Oscillating Inlet Vents - allowing better cooling in hot conditions
  • Delayed fan stage change/inlet position change avoids cold air dumping on litter in winter
  • Simple Manual/Test menu to help diagnose faulty circuits
  • Generator surge reduction technique
  • PC link - allowing monitoring and control of several houses from single remote location

In addition the STICK has a comprehensive "Records" menu to monitor:

  • Max/Min Temperature
  • Max/Min Humidity
  • Water consumption
  • Heater/Dehumidification run times - to enable monitoring of gas usage

Stick Feed/Weigher

The STICK Feed Blending and Bird Weighing controllers allow whole grain wheat to be mixed with the compound feed in an adjustable ratio whilst actual bird weight is recorded automatically from up to two separate platforms. The actual wheat mix percentage is selected depending on bird age and growth weight and uses the STICK blending hopper with load cell and motorized outlet valve.

Blender - STICK Feeding controller

Features include:

  • Wheat mix % with associated auger control
  • Feeding timers - can operate with pan or chain feeder types
  • Lighting timer - operate dawn/dusk and HF style lighting
  • 2 Weighing platform inputs with separate growth curves - displays Average, Current, 24Hr Average
  • Comprehensive records of Feed consumption, Water usage, Bird numbers - dead, culls etc

STICK 2 Portable Bird Weigher

This allows recording of bird weights automatically by capturing individual weights and calculating an average. The unit is portable and the display/controller may be plugged in to any nearby 13A socket. The platform is a specially designed "tunnel" shape in order to protect the bird being weighed from interference by the surrounding flock. Two separate size restriction plates are included to further increase the number of valid bird weights by preventing multiple birds perching together. An option is available for use with sexed birds whereby separate growth curves can be used for cockerels and pullets. This enables a single platform to weigh the 2 types of birds without adjusting any settings.

Readings displayed include the following:

  • Average Weight
  • Current Average
  • Previous 24HR Average
  • Number of Birds Weighed
  • Last Bird Weight
