smaXtec System

Our system in detail

With our proven bolus technology, you measure meaningful data of highest quality – directly within the cows. smaXtec Boluses continuously measure data inside the reticulum that we transform into valuable information and actionable recommendations. This knowledge enables you to take data-based and informed decisions to improve your farm.

What makes smaXtec unique?

smaXtec measures inside the cow, giving us two key advantages:
  • green-check
    We only deliver high-quality information, as our measured data cannot be affected by outside influences.
  • green-check

    We collect data that cannot be measured anywhere else, e.g. inner body temperature, drinking behavior and rumen pH values.

And we go even further

We do not see data as single points of information but combine them for you. Thanks to this holistic approach, we provide you with unique insights and support you in taking the best decisions based on comprehensive knowledge.
Erster Schritt der Infografik, wie das smaXtec-System funktioniert: Erhebung der Daten durch den smaXtec Bolus.
Step 01 / 05

smaXtec boluses continuously collect data

smaXtec boluses measure inner body temperature, drinking cycles and water intake, rumination activity via reticulum contractions, movement activity, and optionally pH value directly in the reticulum. The boluses are administered once and require no maintenance at all.

Zweiter Schritt der Infografik, wie das smaXtec-System funktioniert: Auslesegeräte übertragen Daten automatisch.
Step 02 / 05

Read-out devices automatically transmit data

The smaXtec Base Station automatically reads the data and transmits it via integrated internet connection to the smaXtec Cloud TruD™. The Climate Sensor provides additional information on outside temperature, humidity, and air pressure in the barn. You only need a power outlet. After the simple installation, the system is completely maintenance-free.

Dritter Schritt der Infografik, wie das smaXtec-System funktioniert: Datenanalyse in der smaXtec-CloudTruD™
Step 03 / 05

Comprehensive data analysis

In the smaXtec Cloud TruD™, the data is analysed using artificial intelligence (AI) and proven algorithms.

Vierter Schritt der Infografik, wie das smaXtec-System funktioniert: Immer und überall auf die Daten zugreifen.
Step 04 / 05

Access data anytime and anywhere

You can access the clearly structured information and to-do lists on your smartphone and PC and choose what notifications you want to receive. By connecting with the herd management program, data is automatically exchanged.
