Automation of engineering systems

For effective plant growth, it is important that a favorable microclimate in the greenhouse is maintained continuously. To achieve an optimal result, to minimize the risk of force majeure associated with the human factor, it is possible through automating control systems for engineering systems. The process provides for the creation of a reliable functional base of equipment and technologies on the territory of the greenhouse complex. The purpose of automation is to maintain the specified light, climatic and other parameters by acting on structural elements and mechanisms that make up the engineering network.

Together with the transition to an automated process of control systems, the farm receives an additional and rather tangible caption of saving resources (up to 25% of thermal energy is saved, up to 40% of electricity). Automation of the process leads to an improvement in the working conditions of employees, savings in enterprise funds by reducing the number of service personnel, and an increase in the culture of greenhouse production.

Plants Supplementary Lighting Automation in Greenhouses

Automated supplementary lighting control system is required to maintain the design parameters in the established mode and conduct continuous control over compliance with the specified working algorithms. The equipment immediately responds to emergencies and notifies of the need for intervention. 
An automated system solves the same tasks as a greenhouse worker, but does it to a high precision, quickly and on time. It is a set of equipment with two components:

  • A set of sensors;
  • Hardware and software complex.

The sensors operate as reading devices that respond to changes in the supplementary lighting system, natural lighting. The signal about the need for intervention, as well as the current readings are transmitted to the software and hardware complex, where data is collected and processed. Based on the information received, control signals are generated.

Automated systems are unique and independent, created for a specific facility. The first option allows reducing costs and time for design. In the second case, automation is carried out on the basis of a prepared project. The systems are introduced to the enterprise in a complex way by generating them into a common network or by adding them to an existing infrastructure.

The automated system is controlled using a specially created web interface. The program is installed on a regular computer, tablet or smartphone. The manager or responsible employee of the greenhouse selects the settings, gets access to information on technical parameters, based on the analysis, they make forecasts that can improve the quality of products, increase the productivity of the greenhouse complex.

Lighting Systems Automation in Greenhouses - Benefits

Among all the existing benefits of lighting automation, three are considered to be the most important:

  1. Achievement of high efficiency of the whole network.
  2. Significant reduction of peak currents in the process of lamps firing.
  3. Saving of electricity.

At different blossoming periods, cultures require different light spectrum. Most often, we are talking about values that lie in a narrow range. If, at the same time, standard light sources are used as supplementary lighting - the same sodium lamps, then most of the electricity is wasted. With a “smart” engineering system operating in automatic mode, such situations are basically impossible. Networks are designed using specialized light sources. The equipment doses certain colors of the spectrum by adding or removing components. Energy savings of functional light sources reach 70%, and this does not take the positive factors of natural light into account, which makes the red and blue colors even richer.

Through replacing outdated light sources with modern designs, it is possible to optimize the process of supplementary lighting of plants to the maximum. Bio-lamps are able to maintain the established settings of the configuration of light fluxes and light supplementary individual areas of the greenhouse with light in the required spectrum. Re-equipment of the greenhouse with energy-efficient LED bio-lights will lead to an even distribution of the crown over the entire stem of the cultures grown. You do not have to reinstall lamps regularly to a suitable position.

It would be difficult for a person to watch the specified and other lighting parameters, especially when that entails a greenhouse farm for several hectares.

Lighting systems automation in ECOLED-Trade Company greenhouses

The company is engaged in the development, production of LED bio-lamps for greenhouses. Based on our own designs, we design lighting that increases efficiency. For 5 years of work, we have managed to bring the quality of LED lamps to the level of European manufacturers. Nevertheless, designs of domestic production are in great demand among customers, because they save 30-50% of the cost of imported goods. Accordingly, it is now not only cheap, but also reliable to buy LED bio-lamps from ECOLED-Trade.

The automation of lighting systems in greenhouses is one of the services of our company. Working with us, you will protect yourself from hasty decisions and receive a favorable price quotation. The service includes project support, system maintenance under warranty and at the end of the warranty period. We suggest you to familiarize yourself with the full range of services of the company on the website, or by telephone number +7 (495) 134 52 02.
