Advanced Controls & Monitoring
Environmental controls are the core of any ventilation system. AP offers the professional producer precise control and monitoring of environment feeding and watering with the proper controls for heating, cooling, air inlets and more. Precision control and monitoring of environmental systems requires sophisticated tools you can rely on including the ability to custom configure your controls to meet the specific requirements of your facility’s ventilation systems and production practices. AP controls are user-friendly and durable in the harsh environment of a livestock facility.



I-BOX 360° Communication Systems

AP controllers, timers and monitors can be linked together and monitored from an I-Box on site or remotely via the internet.Receiving accurate, real time information with the ability to control vital systems in your facility from an office PC or remotely via the internet is what I-Box is all about.


Our I-Box software allows you to make changes to ventilation control and time parameters, monitor current environmental conditions, data log and chart historical information. The software utilizes pull down menus and dialog boxes to make it simple to operate.

It’s informative, it’s Intelligent, it’s I-Box.

Up to four temperature sensors averaging temperature.

High/low temperature retention.

Set point and minimum ventilation curves.

Overload and over voltage protection.

Zoned or cascading heat stages.

Alarm output.

De-icing cycle on second stage variable fans.



Optional Features:

Humidity sensor input.

Air inlet control using TC5-ITA timed logic or PF-6 inlet position module and potentiometer.


HML Series Variable Controllers


The HML Series power module is capable of varying the intensity of lights, heat lamps, heat mats or fans.

HML Series controllers feature a rugged construction with plenty of capacity. Three modes are available: 1.6kW HML-20, 2kW HML-40 and 6.4kW HML-80. The HML is compatible with most dimmable CFLs (Compact fluorescent lights) including CCFL (cold cathode).

The HML features adjustable output intensity curves. Seven light curves adjust electronic lamps (CFL) and incandescent lamps. In addition, ten fan curves are available to optimize varible fan speed range.

Available in automatic or manual control, the HML Series controllers are easy-to-use, easy-to-install and easy to service.

Other HML Features:

Sunset/Sunrise built in (with clock input).

True by-pass on Manual.

Available in 1600, 3200 and 6400 Watt capacities.

0-10 or trig signal can be used as inputs to the module.

MINI EXPERTS and EXPERTS can control the module.

Module can be used on variable fans, heat mats or heat lamps.
