TechTour: Agrimatics Libra Sends Grain Cart Weights Straight to Your Phone or Tablet

agrimaticslibraIn March of 2014, Agrimatics announced the availability of a new product — the Agrimatics Libra. It’s a cloud-based system that sends weigh scale data from grain carts to a smartphone or tablet.

All the operator needs is a small battery-operated device from Agrimatics and the free mobile app. With those two ingredients, any iPhone 4S (or newer) or iPad 3 (or newer) can become a grain cart display and data management system. Information share occurs through bluetooth, allowing your mobile device to continue to function normally while the app runs in the background.
