Wadsworth designed this advanced integrated controller to offer flexibility and functionality. And it bears the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) mark, your assurance of regulatory approval and safety.
The EnviroSTEPs are easy to use and they have great longevity. The fact that the EnviroSTEP panels manage all the systems in each greenhouse has made controlling the climate easier. We are now able to achieve much tighter control in our greenhouses, which is very beneficial to our teaching and research programs. The great technical support makes using the system that much easier and gives me peace of mind.

“Being a research facility, we need to provide specific environments on a project basis. Our 50 EnviroSTEPs allow us to offer a precise climate tailored for each experiment, and that makes our researchers very happy.”
“I like the EnviroSTEP because of its ease of operation and flexibility. We use it to control a lot of different equipment including hot air furnaces, HAF fans, and multiple cooling units including, shutters, inflatable wall vents and fans. It allows us to control all of our equipment efficiently from a central controller. The EnviroSTEP keeps the greenhouse within our desired setpoint range and the control responds immediately to any adjustments I make.”

“We were asked to create a custom greenhouse for a private homeowner who insisted that all passive and mechanical temperature controls be fully automated. Fortunately, a colleague recommended the EnviroSTEP controller.
It was great having the team at Wadsworth Controls working with us on our greenhouse project. From initial design consultations to the final programming, we were confident they would develop the best solution for our client. Wadsworth was able to tailor their product to the specific needs of the greenhouse owner, and their tech support team helped fine-tune the custom settings after installation.
We are all very happy with the results and look forward to working with Wadsworth Controls in the future.”
