The MS100 Environment Control Outstation operates the various systems and associated equipment within the controlled environment to achieve the optimum required conditions, dependent upon the controlling set points and the meteorological and internal conditions.
The MS100 PowerStation is delivered with all software factory installed. Programs are included to control:
• Soil / bench heating
• Ventilation - two distinct groups, up to 4 vents each
• Screens (two groups)
• Lighting (16 groups)
• CO2 control
• Humidity control, fan control
• Alarm/warning functions
• Irrigation and misting
• Soil humidity measurement
• Boiler plant
• Boiler room main pipe
For ease of use and complete integration, it is possible to connect almost any sensor, from any manufacturer to the MS100 PowerStation. The only requirement is that the sensor delivers some kind of electrical output. Alternatively, passive sensors like PT1000, NTC, PTC, potentiometer etc. may also be used.
All system components are suitable for installation within a hostile type environment. To achieve this, each circuit board is treated with a protective lacquer to prevent moisture ingression and corrosion. All enclosures are sealed to IP65 specification.
The system is backed up by non-volatile memory, so that in the event of a power failure all vital information stored in the controllers is not lost. Once the power disruption is resolved, the unit will continue to operate normally.
Sites where WebControl software is installed may be remotely administered by one of our technicians. This enables users to be shown, in real time, how to troubleshoot and optimise their systems.
In house technicians design, install and commission the system including all cabling, ducting, sensors and control gear.
The MS100 is a robust and resilient control system that is designed to operate in the harsh environment found within a glasshouse.
