Perhaps the most advanced technology within the current horticulture complex is electrotechnology. The basis is formed by the general power supply, high-voltage current distributors in combination with emergency power aggregates and/or the cogeneration (CHP) installation.
The heart of a horticulture complex is the process computer. It monitors things such as the greenhouse temperature, greenhouse climate, functioning of the boiler, cogeneration scheme, water emission etc.
The systems with which these appliances are arranged have different pumps and motors which are connected to the process computer with cables and control panels. Well-organized port systems form the backbone within the complex and provide the communication and control of all separate components.
A professional horticulture process computer provides an optimal energy consumption in combination with the required values in the field of greenhouse temperature, greenhouse climate, water emission, external light radiotion etc.
In addition, the process computer must be able to determine whether an increase in production can be realised, and hence a greater return, on the basis of the target values, compared to the cost price of energy and means of productions.
Last but not least, the measurements of all values that are relevant for cultivation are registered by the process computer. The history of these details offers a wealth of information which can be used in the future.
