AEssenseGrows is now offering its proprietary AEtrium Automated Dosing Unit (ADU) as a fully integrated nutrient measurement, dispensing, pH monitoring and nutrient adjustment system for use in greenhouse or indoor cultivation facilities.
The turnkey ADU operates 24 hours a day, delivering 16 gallons per minute of precision volumetric dosing to eight programmable channels of irrigation. Delivered fully assembled with on-board computer, users just connect water and power and the system is ready to go. The AEtrium ADU can automatically dose from any of 11 available liquid nutrient sources.
Each of the standard irrigation pumps offer a maximum flow rate of 15.8 gallons per minute from the integrated reservoir. Temperature, pH, and electrical conductivity (EC) are measured constantly and reported to the ADU on-board computer for analysis by the Guardian Grow Manager control system.
In addition to fertigation, the Guardian Grow Manager software can be extended through the use of smart relays to control a complete grow environment from nutrients to air, CO2 management, humidity, temperature, fans, vents, light deprivation screens, lighting control and input/exit water and treatment recovery systems. An optional reservoir cooling coil can be integrated to chill the reservoir for warmer grow environments.
