Agtronix™ is a division of Pella Electronics Co., Inc., which was founded in Pella, Iowa in 1987. The first projects were custom designed livestock batching systems for farm and commercial feed systems. Digital scales were introduced in 1988.
Our FS300 Batching system was introduced in 1990. It was intended primarily for controlling operation of batch mixers for livestock feed. This product has been very successful with many installations throughout the Midwest, as well as Mexico and Canada. As the business grew, complementary products such as a Micro-batching controller and loadcell mounts were engineered and added to the product line. The FS320 Batching system currently produced is similar to the FS300, except with updated software.
In 1992 work began on the design of continuous flow proportioning units that would blend feed ingredients together on-the-fly. This product was introduced as the Agtronix™ FEEDPRO™ in August of 1993. The FEEDPRO™ system has been well received for on-farm feed mixing and has grown to be a major product line for Pella Electronics. The original continuous flow metering units were later supplemented with the LX800 micro-system, a liquid fat system, products to download feed records to a PC, and PC software to control the entire feed system.
1993 also saw the introduction of the Agtronix™ Flowscale™. The Flowscale™ is nearly identical to Feedpro™ metering units, except it is used primarily as a stand alone unit. Industries where a product needs to be metered at a specific flowrate find the Flowscale™ to be extremely valuable. For example, hundreds of Flowscale™ units have been sold to breweries world wide to meter and weigh a user-specified amount of malt or wheat as it flows into the mill to be processed at a specific flowrate.
