To ensure the health of your flock, your barn and facility ventilation system should be able to easily adapt to changing conditions. However, with all the different ventilation equipment on your sheep farm and constantly changing temperatures and humidity, it can be difficult to constantly adjust your ventilation systems. Chinook Farm Innovations, along with Phason, have a solution with ventilation controls that make it easier to keep your sheep farm well ventilated.
With AutoFlex Connect II, you can control and manage ventilation, supplemental cooling, heating, lighting, feeding, and more.
AutoFlex Connect II is modular and adapts to your needs, whether you are running a large operation with several dozen sites or a small facility with one or two buildings. With Phason's AutoFlex Connect II, you can build out your control as you determine what additional inputs and outputs you need. AutoFlex Connect II becomes more economical as your operation expands.

Plus Touch can monitor humidity, ammonia, carbon dioxide, and more. It can then use those conditions to influence how it controls equipment. For example, if the humidity is too high, it can switch heaters on or increase ventilation to reduce it.
In addition to traditional staged control, Plus Touch offers VentGrid™ merged ventilation. Merged mode has up to four steps. The benefit is that merged mode can provide smoother transitions between steps than traditional staged mode can between stages.
Growth and minimum ventilation curves
Growth and ventilation curves are powerful features that allow you to automatically change the temperature set point and minimum ventilation rate over time to adjust to requirements as your animals grow.
