    Comments Off on New controlled-environment agriculture solution in Chile enables up to 50% energy saving

    The Center for Advanced Studies in Fruticulture (CEAF) is a research center located in the O’Higgins Region, in central Chile, whose objective is to improve the scientific and technological competitiveness of the region through solutions and technological innovations that improve productivity of key fruit species.

    In partnership with our subsidiary company Epssilon Networks, established in Chile since 2011, we have recently implemented a Controlled-Environment Agriculture solution with professional LED lighting for plant growth provided by our partner Valoya, with carefully selected lighting spectra for maximum crop performance. This system has been deployed inside a growth chamber, isolated from outdoor ambient variables, thus allowing the cultivation of crops under controlled conditions.

    This system, like all that we deploy in this market, can be controlled and regulated through the use of the UCM-316 controller, capable of performing scheduled controlled actions or ad-hoc and monitored by our wireless temperature, humidity and CO2 sensor, IAQM, through the Concordia Cloud platform, where data is sent in real time and from where notifiable events are generated by email.

    By using this technology, it is expected to achieve energy savings of 40% to 50% compared to traditional sodium lighting systems, and under certain conditions could be more than 60%. The technology will also help reduce growth times by approximately 22%, while generating more vigorous plants. As an example, crops that usually take 12 weeks under traditional fluorescent or sodium lighting systems, would take only 9 weeks on average to reach a similar and even better development stage than with traditional systems, and only 50 % of energy consumption. In this way, it is possible to increase the number of productive cycles in a given period of time, by using the same infrastructure.

    Comments Off on Advanticsys Greenhouses monitoring and control solutions at International Fair in Chile

    Epssilon Networks , one of our worldwide strategic partners, have shown ADVANTICSYS monitoring and control technologies at the Flores y Viveros International Exhibition Fair at Quillota, Chile on the 25th and 26th November 2014.
     
    By combining our complete set of dataloggers/controllers and LED dimming/control devices and wireless indoor conditions sensors, we are able to provide a cost-effective all-in-one solution enabling the productivity improvement in the greenhouse.
     
    Regardless of the season or the weather, the system is able to keep the best conditions within the greenhouse, providing real-time information about temperature, humidity, CO2, PAR (Photosynthetically active radiation), and even energy consumption to the customer.

    About the Flores y Viveros Exhibition Fair
    Nurseries Association of Chile (AGV) and the Association of Producers and Exporters of Flowers of Chile (APEF), came together to organize the 25th and 26th November, the “International Industry Fair of Flowers and Nursery in Chile, FYV 2014”.
    The fair attracted more than 1,500 attendees, including senior government officials, to fruit, vegetable and ornamental nurseries nationwide.
    It was attended by farmers, growers, exporters, consultants, academics, business supplies and services, technology, security, sustainable solutions, students and related authorities, among others. All in one place, designed to offer attendees the opportunity to meet formal trade of plants and flowers, where direct purchase inputs in general and agricultural technology available in our country, enabling them to improve crop productivity.
