Makes Precision irrigation possible
1. Highly accurate WC measurement
Based on statistically reliable studies, the GroSens HandHeld measures WC more accurately than existing water content meters (WCM).
With its greatly improved WC measurement, GroSens is an indispensable tool for growers who want to use precision irrigation professionally in order to achieve optimum yield and quality. Accurate WC measurements in the stone wool substrate give growers the ability to exercise optimum control over their crops. With the GroSens HandHeld, a good impression of the water content can be obtained
quickly and easily by taking measurements at representative locations in the greenhouse.
2. Highly accurate EC measurement
Based on statistically reliable studies, the GroSens HandHeld measures EC more accurately than existing water content meters (WCM).
Greatly improved EC measurement takes accurate EC control to the next level. The GroSens HandHeld enables precision management of EC for growers who want it, and opens the way to further yield optimisation and better quality. Accurate EC measurements in the stone
wool substrate give growers the ability to exercise optimum control over their crops at crucial moments during cultivation.
3. Multi-measurement facility
The GroSens HandHeld meter is suitable for multi-measurements as well as individual measurements. This function measures WC, EC and temperature at various locations in the greenhouse. The meter automatically displays the averages and the distribution of the values per series (e.g. per watering section). This gives the necessary certainty for the reliable adjustment of settings for optimisation of the watering strategy. The reference slab in the greenhouse can easily be determined using multi-measurement.
4. Logging function for day dynamics
The logging function is the third option, in which measurements are made at intervals. It is easy to adjust the intervals at which the GroSens HandHeld Meter measurements are carried out in a slab. The GroSens HandHeld Meter can take and store up to 2,300 measurements in succession. Stability is desirable, especially in the measurement results which can only show a minimal distribution. This gives reliable insight into the course of the WC-, EC- and T-curves over a period determined by the grower. But long-term use of the meter without interruptions or failure also contributes to stable measured data.
5. Multi-Sensor measuring system expansion possibleThe GroSens HandHeld Meter can easily be expanded to a GroSens
MultiSensor measuring system. Based on a minimum of three sensors, the system gives 24/7 realtime insight into the water content, the EC and the temperature of the stone wool substrate. The system can be connected to most climate computers to report this data in graphic form, immediately and continuously. The GroSens basic set is designed to ensure reliable, representative WC and EC figures for an irrigation section. All components in the GroSens basic set are available separately, depending on the size of the greenhouse and whether the grower wants to take the next step in precision irrigation. This allows the GroSens system to be perfectly tailored to the individual needs of the grower.
