Lighting System for Poultry Houses for Floor Keeping


The Fluorescent Lighting System

Ivelsy® FPL (premium)

The lighting system principle is protected by an international patent

Energy saving is 6 times and more (compared to a filament lamp)!

•Illumination control is gradual, from 1 to 100%>

•The basic application is for parent flock, rearing birds (as a rule, the considerable illumination control depth from 5 to 80 lux is required). Other areas of application are broiler, laying hens.

Advantages

• the highest energy saving level; 

• the considerable illumination control depth 1-100%;

• Long service life.

It is a universal system to solve any problems in the poultry farming.

The illumination control panel Ivelsy® FPL (ICP FPL)

Consists of two modules:

• Module 1: manual control. The required level of illumination is set with a handle on the front panel of the module;

• Module 2: automatic control. There is an illumination controller Ivelsy® “Rassvet” installed into the module;

• One control panel runs all the lamps.

The illumination controller Ivelsy® “Rassvet”

A technological programme of illumination for all time of the poultry keeping is recorded into the controller.

• Day-Night Duration

• Sunset-Sunrise Duration

• a set level of illumination (lux)

are set for every day of the poultry life.

Illumination sensor Ivelsy ® IS

 • is installed in the poultry yard and connected to the Ivelsy® controller “Rassvet”;

• allows keeping a required level of illumination in the poultry yard regardless of lamps dirtying.
  For example, a parent flock is kept more than 300 days. The lamps get dirty during this time.

How to connect the lamps into the line:

The lamps are connected into the line parallel according to the five-wire wiring scheme (phase, midpoint conductor, earth connector, two wires of 1-10 V control).

Suspension clip for lighting systems

Lamps for floor keeping are hanged up on a wire rope with the help of hooks horizontally at a height of 3 meters.

The Fluorescent Lighting System for Poultry Houses

Ivelsy® FML (medium)

Energy saving is 5 times and more (compared to a filament lamp)!

• Illumination control is gradual, from 40 to 100%;

• The basic application is for laying hens. Other areas of application are broiler, parent flock, rearing birds (cage and floor keeping).

Advantages

• Possibility for gradual setting the level of illumination for CFL as in the manual mode, so in the automatic mode that allows performing the technological requirements more accurately.

• Sunset/Sunrise mode for CFL because the Sunset mode is more important for the poultry which has to prepare for sleep.

The Ivelsy® dimmers FML FD (Fluorescent Dimmer)

They are used to manage the brightness of the CFL. The required illumination may be set with the help of a control luxmeter and a handle of the dimmer. All the lamp lines are connected to the same dimmer. 

Sunset/Sunrise Mode. Sunset lasts from the set level of illumination to zero during the set period (set in the dimmer, sec.).

Managing the Day/Night cycles.

• Automatic mode is set by the “dry contact” input from the outer Ivelsy® timer Front-2R;

•Manual mode is set with the switch on the dimmer panel.

Running the lamps brightness (the Day/Night cycles included):

• Automatic mode is set by the analog input 1.10 V from external device. As an external device there may be used illumination controller Ivelsy® Rassvet-200, microclimate computer (if an analog output 1…10V is provided);

• Manual mode is set with the switch on the dimmer panel.

Notes:

• In many microclimate computers there is no possibility to connect an illumination sensor that leads to faulty running because of lack of feedback. The illumination sensor Ivelsy® IS is connected to the illumination controller Ivelsy® Rassvet-200 which allows maintaining the required level of illumination regardless of dust cover on the lamps and other factors during all the period of the poultry keeping.

• The Ivelsy® system FML may be installed instead of the filament lamps into the existing lighting lines. Special small compact fluorescent lamps (power of 9W is compared to 45W of a filament lamp) without a protective bulb are used. The lamps are easy to install in the standard lamps -60 (acorn tube type) or analogues. Mainly such systems are used for the laying hens that do not require a high level of illumination.

The Fluorescent Lighting System

Ivelsy® FBL (basic)

Energy saving is 5 times and more (compared to a filament lamp)!

• Illumination control is step: 50, 75 or 100%. You can choose one of the levels of illumination with the switcher.

• The basic application is for broilers (cage and floor keeping), there is no need to keep the Sunset/Sunrise mode and accurate illumination level for them. 

Advantages

• low price of the system, its simplicity

•the Ivelsy® dimmers FBL FD (Fluorescent Dimmer) are used to control the brightness of lamps;

• all the lamp lines are connected to the same dimmer;

• Sunset/Sunrise mode is not provided.

Note:

•The Sunrise mode is provided by the CF lamps construction which turn on at 50%, flare up to the set brightness in two minutes.

• Day/Night cycles are managed at the external control panel with the Ivelsy® timer. The method is switching on/off dimmer power supply.

• The Ivelsy® system FBL may be installed instead of filament lamps into the existing lighting systems. For this, special small CFL (power of 9W is compared to 45W of a filament lamp) without a protective bulb are used. The lamps are easy to install in the standard lamps -60 (acorn tube type) or analogues. Mainly such systems are used for the laying hens that do not require a high level of illumination.

Suspension clip for lighting systems Ivelsy® FML, FBL

Cable and lamps with bulbs are hanged up on a wire rope with the help of plastic clamps. The distance between lamps is 3 meters. The lamps are hanged up on one level at a height 2-3 meters depending on conditions. A required level of illumination depends on the type, colour of litter, walls, and floor because it all influences the illumination.

Lighting systems based on filament lamps

The Ivelsy® controllers – integrated dimmer for filament lamps IDF – are designed for controlling filament lamps. The external controlling devices may be supplied for the controllers. 

• Programmable timer Ivelsy® Front-2R runs Day/Night cycles;

•the Ivelsy® controller “Rassvet” with the illumination sensor Ivelsy® FBS runs the level of illumination and Day/Night cycles.

Development

Electric Shepherd Ivelsy® ES-3

The device is used to prevent the poultry from sitting in the feeding or drinking places by means of the current impulse when the poultry touches the wire of the fence situated above the feeding-drinking system.
