Noise Level Dashboard
Noise has a major impact on the stress level of many animals. The waiting area in slaughterhouses should allow the animals to rest from transport. According to the recommendation of bsi-Schwarzenbek, the noise level (average value over five minutes) should not be above 75 dB (A) in the waiting area and not above 85 dB (A) on the way to slaughtering. This display enables direct feedback for the workers on site.
Measuring position at the waiting stall: In the middle of the stall (not near the delivery point and not near the entry point). Measurements are taken in the animal area at the height of the animals (or up to one meter above the animals' head height)
Measuring position at the raceway: In the area between 5 and 10 m in front of the stunning trap / system. Measurements are taken in the animal area at the height of the animals (or up to one meter above the animals' head height).

Access to Historical Data
Access historical data in web browser, no additional hardware required.
It is much more tiring for workers in the stable to do things quietly and some workers are unaware that animals are very sensitive to noise. Historical records are essential for constant and sustainable process capability. They serve as the basis for analysis with the worker and for incentive systems.
