Wind Machines for Frost Protection

Farming operators continually work to protect crops from various environmental elements. Reducing damage while maintaining crop integrity can be difficult to balance, especially with extreme or fluctuating weather changes. Wind machines are a common way to maintain and control the temperature and protect crops from frost damage.

Engine and Generator Control

Having a proper engine controller can make a difference in how much protection a wind machine can deliver and how quickly operators can respond. The right engine controller must be able to monitor, measure and quickly respond to weather conditions. In addition to being easy to operate, it must also have the following capabilities: 

  • Ability to set start and stop temperatures
  • Automatically start when the ambient temperature drops to a set point
  • Setting warm-up and cool-down timeframes
  • Setting the RPM of the engine
  • Defining a shutdown sequence
