Minnesota Wire Partners with VES-Artex for Intelligent Soaker 2.0

In the ever-evolving landscape of agricultural technology, innovation continues to redefine traditional farming practices. Among the latest breakthroughs is the Intelligent Soaker 2.0, a revolutionary system developed by VES-Artex, designed to enhance the well-being of cows and optimize milk production. We’re proud to be at the forefront of this innovation, collaborating closely with VES-Artex to ensure the success of this game-changing solution.

At the heart of the Intelligent Soaker lies a sophisticated mechanism that leverages water to improve the comfort of cows. This innovative system is equipped with sensors which detect when a cow enters the stall, triggering a gentle mist of water to maintain optimal temperature conditions. The mist sprays are timed to ensure consistent comfort for the cow, ceasing only when it leaves the stall. The result? A happier, more contented bovine, leading to enhanced milk production—a win-win for both farmers and their herds.

While the concept was groundbreaking, the journey to perfection was not without its challenges. Last year, the initial launch of the Intelligent Soaker faced setbacks due to issues with the sensors in the sprayer head—a critical component of the system. These sensors were crucial in accurately detecting the presence of cows within the stall. However, they encountered difficulties, registering false positives and negatives, disrupting the functionality of the system.

This is where we stepped in.

A Challenge Met Through Collaboration

Recognizing the enormous potential of the Intelligent Soaker, we collaborated with VES-Artex to address these challenges head-on. Drawing upon our expertise in engineering and innovation, our team worked tirelessly alongside VES-Artex engineers to identify the root cause of the sensor malfunction. Through meticulous analysis and problem-solving, VES-Artex introduced LEDs to each sensor junction point, shedding light on the issue and facilitating swift resolution.

The result of this collaboration is the imminent arrival of version 2.0 of the Intelligent Soaker. With the sensor issues resolved and enhancements implemented, this next iteration promises even greater efficiency and reliability. Scheduled for launch in late Q2, the Intelligent Soaker 2.0 heralds a new era in agricultural technology—a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation.

As we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the new sensor heads in April, it’s clear that our partnership with VES-Artex has not only overcome obstacles but has propelled the Intelligent Soaker toward its full potential. In conjunction with VES-Artex, we are helping to revolutionize the agricultural landscape, one innovation at a time.
