The Greenhouse Command Center

 

The Greenhouse Company’s Greenhouse Command Center optimizes your greenhouse’s growing conditions 24/7 through continuous monitoring and control. The Command Center consists of an electric climate-control system designed to operate all of the equipment required to ventilate, cool, and heat a single-zone greenhouse employing 5 stages of cooling and a single stage of heating.

It can operate 2 exhaust fans, one of which can be a two-speed fan, a louver for first stage ventilation, a motorized vent for maximum ventilation, an evaporative cooling system, circulation fans and up to two heaters.

The system is programmed with a logical progression of equipment staging so that no equipment operates unnecessarily. The naturally aspirated shielded temperature sensor is located in a forward quadrant rather than centrally located to further reduce unnecessary cycling of equipment. The system is pre-programmed so that it is fully functional as soon as it is initialized.
