The brain of the modern broiler house is the computer controller, which monitors house environmental conditions and adjusts the equipment as necessary to keep temperatures constant. Controllers can monitor temperature in six or more locations within the house. Humidity can also be monitored, although adjustments to heater and fans are usually done on a temperature basis. As the house temperature fluctuates, the controller will turn on the brooders or fans as needed. The controller operates equipment in the house including: brooders, fans, inlet machines, curtain machines, evaporative cooling systems, and lights. The controller allows house conditions to be monitored and changed remotely if required.
