Capture of heat in horticultural water systems
A research and development project to explore low cost, intelligent capture of solar and ambient heat into horticultural water systems. Further details are available from Mike at Virtual Workgroups.
Heat is captured intelligently from solar radiation, panel substrate temperature differential and ambient air temperature differential.
It features smart intelligent pipes (SIP).
Mobile solar units for horticultural use
Development and test of experimental solar power units for horticultural applications. Further details are available from Simon at Virtual Workgroups.
Portable solar power so that you can move it to any location and have 12v DC or 240v AC where you need it. Useful for running data loggers, valves, irrigation systems, low power lighting and other horticultural electrical systems off grid. There's a big special battery behind the panels !
Sensors and Actuators
Wireless control of growing systems
Development and test of low (battery) power wireless controlled sensors, actuators and data gathering systems.
