CONTROLS

Why invest in a control

  • Improved crop quality
  • Higher yield
  • Accurate Temp & RH
  • Negative Diff capabilities
  • Multiple Sensor Sites
  • Control Light, CO2, irrigation
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Lower labor costs
  • Reduce chemical application costs
  • Increase longevity of equipment – Less wear and tear

Integrated Controls

  • Highly capable, designed to accommodate any growing situation, large or small.
  • Manages light, CO2, irrigation, outdoor sensors
  • Fertigation
  • Graphing, data logging
  • Each piece of equipment has individual settings, allowing it to act independently with greater efficiency

Staged Controls

  • Staged controls respond to changes in greenhouse temperature by activating groups or stages of heating and cooling equipment.
  • The groups of equipment respond collectively to drive the temperature to the desired value.
  • As the temperature moves further from the desired value, additional stages of equipment engage.
