ART, ART Lite, AIMS and ARTEMIS are solutions that have been developed in-house by Ronin GMS. Our constituent analysers are sourced from various respected manufacturers from around the world. Our temperature control system is sourced from Cimbria.

What are constituent analysers?
Moisture, proteins, fats and all other entities inside grain are referred to as constituents. The various instruments use different techniques to obtain the quality or quantity thereof.

What are inventory management solutions?
Inventory management solutions are systems specifically developed by Ronin GMS to manage stock and minimise risk.

Eg: Keeping different qualities segregated and to balance against a book stock value. Closing the silo complex and alarming for illegal movements of grain. Blending grain to right percentages and more.

What is ART?
The ART system, used at silo sites to monitor bin levels and other variants, was the first inventory management system of its kind to be developed by Ronin GMS. The system greatly simplifies the management of stock and risk control. The ART solution consists of proprietary software and hardware. The software offers an easy to understand user interface and keeps a record of stock movement. The hardware, an in-bin laser architecture, delivers real time information on stock movement to designated workstations running the ART software package.

What is ART Lite?
ART Lite is a proprietary software package developed by Ronin GMS that allows an operator to manually input stock related data. This information is then stored and reflected via an easy to understand graphical interface.

What is AIMS?
AIMS is a stockpile surveying solution. It consists of a freestanding unit comprising a tripod, laser measuring device and a laptop computer. The windows based computer runs a proprietary software package developed by Ronin GMS that interprets the data obtained via the laser and bulk density testing to deliver the occupied volume and mass of a surveyed stockpile.

What is ARTEMIS?
Artemis is a laser architecture incorporated into a bunker. It supplies real-time data to a workstation running proprietary Ronin GMS software. The operator of this workstation is able to track stock movement within the bunker via an easy to understand graphical user interface.

What is ART Alarm?
STOP after-hours grain theft with the Ronin ART Alarm Security Solution. ART Alarm is a robust, reliable and cost effective system designed to operate unobtrusively in all weather conditions. The system has no visible cabling and operates independently from an external power supply. ART Alarm utilises infrared cameras and motion sensors placed at key points around the silo to ensure that your grain remains secure. The system is designed to interface with Ronin’s Art software and thus offers Head Office awareness of after-hour movements of grain and will also send out a silent alarm whenever movement is detected at key points around the silo. Video recorded is instantly viewable online. ART Alarm can be installed within 4 to 5  working days. Please contact Ronin GMS for a quotation and STOP YOUR LOSSES today.
