TuberLog Electronic Potato

The TuberLog is a powerful tool to identify sources of damage and bruising in all types of potato handling machinery

The TuberLog is a powerful quality control tool which assists in the drive towards high quality potato production. It changes the approach to damage control and bruising prevention.

Packhouses, processors, co-operatives and growers can all benefit from the quality control information which TuberLog provides. Built-in shock sensors measure and locate impacts that are likely sources of potato damage as it passes through machinery with real potatoes. The impact data is stored for download to a PC by a wireless Bluetooth interface or a wired USB connection.

The Economics of Damage and Bruising Prevention

Potato bruising is a serious problem in potato production worldwide. Estimates indicate that more than 60% of some crops are damaged in some way. This leads to huge financial loss and a massive waste of crop.

The TuberLog electronic potato is an economically priced incentive for growers and processors to take preventive action and reduce their losses.
How does TuberLog work?

The TuberLog electronic potato is an acceleration measurement device which records impact forces received while moving with real potatoes during harvesting and processing and locates damage and bruise-causing parts of machinery (including washers). It comprises a data logger embedded in a synthetic shape designed to mimic the size, shape and density of a ware potato.

TuberLog registers impacts instantly when they occur both audibly in the operator’s headphones and displayed visually on the screen of an Android tablet. The operator watches the electronic potato as it passes through the machine and can immediately see the exact source of the impact.
