The Spider is the feeding computer at the centre of it all. Similar to how a spider strategically sits in its web and keeps an eye on everything, the Spider keeps everything running in your shed. The Spider is Hanskamp’s feeding system for automated concentrate feeding of individual animals either in the milking parlour of in a feed station. By feeding automatically and accurately, the Spider contributes to a better performance.
The Spider consists of one central computer, the SpiderServer. The system can be extended with up to 98 additional units, the SpiderClients. Both the SpiderServer and the SpiderClient can read out sixteen antennas and operate sixteen feed dispensers within a ten-metre range.
Reads out all commonly used tags
The Spider saves you money by working with your existing transponders and only requiring one of a few control boxes. The SpiderAntenna can read out almost all conventional RFID transponders with a frequency between 115 and 140 kHz. This makes it possible to read out all commonly used ear, leg and neck mounted tag.
Easy access with your smartphone
The Spider is easy to use. It is equipped with the latest software, developed by our own technicians. As a result, the system is logical and user-friendly. The Spider can set up its own Wi-Fi network, allowing the system to be accessed by smartphone, tablet or computer. Dairy farmers can easily consult or adjust the system on the spot. The input and exchange of data can be done manually or automatically using a Taurus connection with your management program.
