As demand grows across North America for sustainable, locally grown vegetables and other plants we have seen a significant increase in the number of greenhouse operations that keep us supplied with fresh vegetables year-round. Crops such as cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, and lettuces are no regularly grown in modern greenhouses where light, water, temperature and nutrient supply are well controlled. The key gas that we monitor for in this applications carbon dioxide (CO2) which must be controlled to ensure both good growing conditions as well as the safety of the people looking after and harvesting the crops.
Most greenhouses do not require equipment to be explosion-proof so commercial equipment may be suitable. Care must be taken to ensure that devices selected are appropriate for the environment they will be installed in, with a particular emphasis on humidity levels.
Depending on the size of the area to be monitored and the number of sensors required we can offer a variety of controller solutions, including the AMC-1A Series, AMC-1400, or AMC-1800. If a BACnet connection is required, the AMC-1DBx can also be configured to work with our full series of analog transmitters.
For CO2 monitoring we offer both the commercial grade AMC-310 Series, as well as the more rugged and configurable AMC-360-IREP transmitter. The AMC-270-D Series transmitter provides good value in a simple, yet rugged 2-wire device for monitoring O2 levels.
