Applications:

Glass Greenhouses:

Using the Orion GC, the greenhouse climate can be regulated based on the measured room temperature, relative humidity, CO2, water temperature and meteorological data. It can be equipped with controls for ventilation, window positions, lighting, heating, screen cloths, energy cloths, humidifiers, recirculation, pipe heating, and irrigation. Depending on the climate region, cultivation needs and specific wishes of growers, features can be switched on or off.

The system is fed by input from a measuring box with a temperature and humidity sensor and can be enhanced with a CO2 sensor. The use of a digital weather station, PC interface, and a smartphone application is also available.
