MM20 Milk Meter

The MM20 milk meter includes milk yield measurement (± 5%), conductivity measurement and milking time. It connects to the Micro M5 parlour control and Cowculator M5 PC software.

Control Features

  • Simple numeric display of milk yield (litres), milking time (minutes:seconds) and highest conductivity (mS – millisiemens)
  • 4 keys – automatic milking, manual milking, wash and conductivity on/off
  • Simple, bright graphical LCD display
  • 5 LED windows for auto milking, pulsation, ACR, milk flow and conductivity milking
  • 2 windows with multiple LEDs graphically displaying conductivity level
  • 2 automatic milking modes – 1 time-based cluster removal and 1 sensor-based cluster removal
  • 3 manual milking modes (ACR disabled, conductivity pull off disabled, ACR and conductivity disabled)
  • Accurate milk yield measurement (± 5%)
  • Accurate milk flow measurement for ACR removal
  • Full pulsation control – 30 to 180 pulses per minute (ppm) and 35% to 75% ratios including pulsation stop – pulsator only on when milking or washing
  • Stimulation pulsation
  • Washing pulsation – runs pulsation frequency t lower rate during washing to reduce liner wear
  • User programmable wash time
  • Wash time elpased and remaining displayed (minutes:seconds)
  • User set conductivity warning and pull off levels
  • User selectable ACR pull off milk flow and time
  • Lift to start ACR input / swing to start input
  • Automatic idle after user selectable period of inactivity
  • Milk sweep / purge
  • Small form factor, allowing for easy installation into existing parlours
  • Suitable for all herd / flock sizes of cows, sheep and goats
  • Suitable for abreast, tandem, herringbone, parallel or rotary parlours
  • Ability to lower clusters below the bridge on rotary parlours
  • Total litres of milk measured per milking for each milk meter can be displayed and added together to easily check calibration

Upgrade Features

  • These features are available if the MM20 controls are upgraded to connect to the Micro M5 parlour control system
  • M2 communications bus link to ATL system – includes activation of LED signalling bus functioning in bottom left of MM20 control
  • Sending of animal numbers and warning flags to MM20 control – operator can only acknowledge warnings – they cannot set them on the MM20 control – to do this they have to use the Micro M5 parlour control
  • Sending of milk yield, milking time and conductivity information to Micro M5

Flask Features

  • Manufactured from polysulfone for excellent mechanical strength and chemical and temperature resistance
  • Dumping milk meter – plunger on diaphragm lift to open outlet and empty milk when milk reaches top probe. It then falls to close outlet and enable flask to fill with milk again
  • Each dump is approximately 200ml
  • Milk Inlet – 15mm ID, 19mm OD
  • Milk Outlet – 18mm ID, 22mm OD
  • No electronic parts with milk meter – simple design ensures low service costs
