This is a possible scheme of hundreds of possible combinations. You can connect all kinds of elements to the modules. This scheme is explained in the footnotes.
The combination of all GroLab modules provides a control capability never seen before. The modules communicate with each other simulating the operation of a brain. This capability offers the grower the ability to replicate its physical abilities in GroLab performing hundreds of tasks simultaneously.
Up to 2300W connected directly to PowerBot (by socket and total), or unlimited power using electrical contactors.
Connect any electric element to PowerBot and configure it to control your crop’s climate. It automates extractors, heaters, humidifiers and / or dehumidifiers, etc. Its temperature and moisture sensor will send all the information to PowerBot in order to maintain the microclimate completely stable.
Connect water valves to your general irrigation outlet to bifurcate water flow. For every TankBot you can connect up to 4 water valves (12v).
If you have SoilBot, you can associate each valve to a moisture sensor so that valves will be open according to the needs of each group of plants.
If you do not have SoilBot, you must schedule your irrigation. GroLab Software lets you create schedules for hours and days of the week. You can also create recurrences to automate your hydroponics system (eg, 5 minutes every 5 minutes).
You can take advantage of TankBot´s connections to multitask:
-Add fertilizer to the water through peristaltic pumps.
-Regulate the water’s pH through peristaltic pumps.
-Automate the peristaltic pumps through the PH and EC sensors.
-Fill the water tank using an electrovalve connected to a tap.
-Empty and recycle the water in the tank using an electrovalve.
-Automate the filling of the tank using water level sensors.
-Monitor and control water temperature through its temperature sensor.
You can connect up to 4 12V-actuators and 4 (switch-type) sensors of your choice for every TankBot. You can add up to 3 more TankBots to your GroNode and expand your control to new functions.
- Turn off electrical elements that hinder safety at specific times.
- Ensure that the temperatures do not exceed the logical limits and act accordingly.
- Cut water flow to prevent flooding.
- Control smoke and fires using detectors that activate themselves and close a circuit (relay).
- Activate sprinklers connected to electrovalves linked to the main water outlet.
- Send orders to disable the extraction systems to prevent oxygenating possible fires.
- Send orders to turn off the lighting systems to prevent fires if smoke has been detected.
- Locate potential intrusions through motion sensors and / or lasers that are activated by closing a circuit (relay).
- Emit a loud beep if a safety alarm is detected.
- Send notices to the computers connected to the local network enabled with GroLab Software.
- Send notices to the PC connected to the local network with GroLab Software activated in the background.
- Send messages to multiple online platforms (Email, Twitter, Facebook), This requires an Internet connection.
Your imagination is the limit. You can add up to 4 modules of each type for each GroNode (the brain).
4 PowerBots equal 16 independent electrical connectors and four temperature and moisture sensors which can control up to 4 independent growing areas.
4 SoilBots provide 16 substrate moisture sensors with which to control multiple groups of plants. 8 substrate temperature sensors and 8 flood detectors. Each SoilBot Box comes with 2 moisture sensors, 1 temperature sensor and 1 flood detector. You can add the extra sensors you need.
4 TankBots provide you with the possibility of controlling up to 16 sensors of your choice (sensors that act as a switch) and 16 12- or 24-volt actuators with a maximum of 5 Watts per output (delivered with one 12v transformer).
This scheme was designed to illustrate some of the control possibilities for each module. Keep in mind that the scheme is limited to the number of modules included in the kit. You can add extra modules (GroNode supports up to 4 modules of each type) and expand your control with new features.
GroNode communicates with all modules through radio frequency signals. It stores all the configurations, receives information from the sensors, and sends orders to each module.
PowerBot activates electrical elements. In this case, it controls the lighting, extraction of stale and/or hot air, activates the water pump and, lastly, the humidifier. Both the extractor, as well as the humidifier are activated in accordance with the data collected through its temperature and moisture sensor.
TankBot keeps the water tank in perfect condition. Through water level sensors, it controls water from falling below the minimum by opening an electrovalve that fills the tank. The sensors prevent the water filling the tank from exceeding its maximum by closing the electrovalve and preventing flooding
PH, EC and temperature sensors monitor the condition of the solution. These sensors send all the necessary information to generate the automatisms necessary to constantly maintain the solution at perfect levels.
If you need to control other nutrients, as well as PH+ and PH-, you should use other peristaltic pump inputs by adding one or more extra TankBots.
Lastly, TankBot controls two electrovalves to automate the water refill. One is connected to a tap and the other directly to the tank for remove all the water.
If you don´t need to control multiple groups of plants, irrigation can be controlled by PowerBot by simply activating the water pump, leaving TankBot´s connectors free for other actuators.
