Wireless Avocado Node™


Wireless Avocado Node™ identifies exact locations where avocado damage takes place

Wireless Avocado Node™ provides a real-time measure of shock, vibration, rotation, tilting and temperature to which avocados are subjected, helping to monitor avocado conveying,grading and packing installations and transportation extending from harvest location to point of sale.

Wireless Avocado Node™ identifies exact locations where avocados are damaged. This enables appropriate corrective action to reduce bruising and losses and improving operational efficiency. It enhances the profit for avocado-production farms.

Manufacturers of grading and packing machines use Wireless Avocado Node™ to ensure that conveyor systems run smoothly and are well-adjusted.
