The affordable all-purpose poly greenhouse controller.
Hotraco Horti from Hegelsom, The Netherlands, has been known for years in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany as a developer and producer of both simple and advanced automation systems and products for the horticultural sector. Responding to the rapidly growing market for foil greenhouses in particular, Hotraco Horti now has a perfect solution: The Orion Poly Greenhouse Controller. The Orion-PGC can do everything that growers need in countries around the equator, Asia and South America, and even more. The standard implemented controls of the Orion-PGC can be switched on or off at the request of the grower, making the controller extremely compact and specifically aimed at the needs of growers in various climate areas and with specific crops.
The Orion-PGC is an extremely versatile and easy-to-use computer for controlling climate (ventilation and window positions), recirculation and irrigation in foil greenhouses, foil tunnels and shade houses. The system is powered with input from a measuring box with a temperature- and humidity sensor. If the prevailing climate conditions or crops require heating, lighting, cloth control or humidification, the Orion-PGC can control those functions as well. The Orion-PGC therefore is a very affordable and highly multifunctional alternative to existing competitive systems that are being used in the climate regions mentioned above.
