How ORCell™ Works

Orchard-Rite’s ORCell™, cellular remote monitoring communications system, allows growers and orchardists to remotely monitor air temperature, engine speed, battery voltage, and engine status from anywhere!

Nodes are installed on each wind machine / frost fan and are connected to your AutoStart™ system. They communicate with the gateway. The gateway on the tower sends the data collected to your desktop, laptop, tablet or cellphone via the ORCell™ website.

From the internet, the ORCell™ website provides live status updates so you’re always informed. Receive emails and text alerts while you’re on-the-go and adjust setting of all of your machines as needed. ORCell™ provides you convenience and peace of mind while also saving you time and money.
