An advanced greenhouse controller with 8 outputs, 9 stages, vent and curtain supports.
The iGrow 400/800 environmental controllers are designed specifically for easy transition in existing greenhouses using thermostats or early-generation controllers, while providing advanced control capabilities – all at an affordable price point. The unique energy-use monitoring system gives growers real data on energy used by individual pieces of equipment for heating and cooling systems, showing energy cost savings and return on investment (ROI) for the controller. This is something thermostats or other controllers cannot do. Once a grower reaches his or her ROI with the controller, it will continue to show energy cost savings going forward.
Entry-level Controller - Advanced Controls
Link4 has designed this controller series to suit the needs and budgets of growers interested in a simple system to manage energy costs and provide detailed performance data for intelligent crop management. The controllers have an optional integrated relay panel for simplified installation into new or existing greenhouses. Because the controllers rely on software controls, rather than cumbersome hard wiring, the system is extremely flexible and adaptable.
Smart Temperature Controls
While traditional thermostats have often been used by growers to provide simple temperature control only, the iGrow 400/800 controllers offer more advanced control over a wider range of equipment, such as:
- Exhaust fans
- Pad Pumps
- Pad Louvers
- HAF Fans
- Fan Jets
- Unit Heaters
- Perimeter Heating Systems
- Other equipment
Each piece of equipment’s complete operating history is recorded for easy transfer to the grower’s computer by USB drive, network, or remote access via computer or cell phone. When growers are away from the greenhouses, they can access operating data remotely from computer or cell phone, see system operation conditions, and make adjustments immediately. iGrow 400/800 controllers can control eight individual pieces of equipment or system elements, with easy reconfiguring via programming, rather than wiring. iGrow 400/800 can be easily expanded from one greenhouse to many greenhouses.
Plenty of Communications Options
Our optional communication module plugs into the iGrow800 for direct networking to PCs to remote control your greenhouse from any distance. You can use the communication network to share Weather Station data for multiple greenhouses and use the MicroSD card slot as an alternate data storage solution. Also included with the communications module is the ability to interface directly to smart cell phones for remote monitoring and control.
