- Priva-Aranet’s wireless sensors can now be fully integrated with Priva’s climate computer control software, Priva Connext & Compact CC.
- The wireless sensors enhance monitoring capabilities within greenhouses, allowing for precise climate control at every location.
- Practical applications include managing temperature, humidity, and soil moisture, crucial for optimizing growing conditions and yields.
Integration of Wireless Technology in Greenhouse Management:
Priva-Aranet has announced that its wireless sensors are fully integrated with the Priva Connext & Compact CC climate computer control software, offering greenhouse producers advanced monitoring and control capabilities over their growing environments.
Enhanced Climate Control:
With the increasing size of greenhouses and the importance of minor variations in growing conditions, producers seek to control the climate precisely at every location. The wireless sensors by Priva-Aranet facilitate this by allowing for multiple measurements in a single control strategy based on minimum, maximum, or average values.
Practical Applications and Benefits:
The wireless sensors provide real-time data on temperature and humidity levels, vital for preventing plant condensation—a common issue when temperatures approach the dew point. Additionally, PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) sensors help optimize light conditions, even in shaded areas, by adjusting shading screens based on the highest measured values.
Soil Moisture Monitoring:
Wireless sensors can measure soil moisture levels at various locations for potted plants, enabling growers to adjust irrigation to the driest measurements. This technology is also beneficial for soil-grown crops and other substrates.
Testimonial from the Industry:
Marcel van der Voort, co-owner of the pot lily and chrysanthemum production company Van Schie, attests to the benefits of the mobile wireless sensors, noting how they provide localized information on crop responses to climatic and lighting changes.
