Erratum – Maple Syrup Can

Hi everyone,
We would like to take some time to indicate there is a mistake in our 2018 client’s catalogue. The photograph for product no. ERACAN8-540, published on page 101 of H2O Innovation client’s catalogue and on page 125 of the distributor’s catalogue, does not necessarily appear exactly as those sold by H2O Innovation. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience that this honest mistake may have caused.

Erratum :
The photograph that should have appeared for the H2O Innovation products, is the following:

New version 2.0.4 of the Sugarheld app from Smartrek Technologies

Great news for all our H2O-Smartrek users. Smartrek Technologies’ managing application went through a serious update to facilitate its use and your work. It is now more than a monitoring tool. It’s a full-fledge management system.

Using the new maple management system, you can:
• Track your employees’ real-time location and review their location history
• Chat with them using the Smartrek network (no internet or cellular network necessary)
• Take and share real-time notes with your team
• Control your equipment remotely from within the Smartrek network, even without internet or cellular network
• Pull an in-app error report with a complete list of warnings and errors with time stamp
• Generate and print daily error graphs

The new Sugarheld app aslo makes the installations of your sensors easier. You can now scan your sensors while in the woods. The sensors will automatically sync with the app and provide data within minutes. The app also includes an installation wizard that guides you step by step through the installation process. That way you’ll be sure your app is properly configured along with your satellite map.

Also freshly added in the new updated Sugarheld app:
• In-line refractometer nodes
• Water counters
• History viewing
• Statistics tool
• Synced data base

Testimonial | H2O-Smartrek™

We received a great testimonial from one of our distributor this week regarding H2O-Smartrek. As you can see, it is true that H2O-Smartrek can make your work a lot more efficient and increase you production.

I just wanted to say that H2O-Smartrek TM is incredible! I am so glad we are part of the H2O Innovation distributor team! It made our weekend go so much better. We knew exactly when we needed to go get a load of sap, saving us tons of time in guessing and no sap was spilled. Also, we knew early in the morning that our generator had run out of gas and we were able to get out there really quickly to fill it up. 

Plus, being able to look at the data is a lot of fun. Here is an overlay of the vacuum we had and the temperature. You can see that as we were tapping it was all over the place. As we opened new lines for tapping, the vacuum would drop and as we tapped them it would improve. You can see the up and down all day. Then there is the overnight generator outage, and leak fixing on Sunday, getting us up to 25 inches! Also, you can see the brief period of warm temperatures today when we should have run the vacuum. This is going to help us so much improve our yield and increase reliability. I am glad we had a few warm days to do a dry run. Now we wait through the next 2 weeks of cold weather for another chance to see the system in action.
