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
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
