AlgaeConnect™ Automated Control and Monitoring
September 13, 2012
Algae Lab Systems’ Algae Connect
he Algae Connect™ automated control and monitoring system collects data from sensors constantly and updates system behavior by the minute based on incoming solar radiation and other factors.
The waterproof system enables yield optimization of the algae strain for local environmental conditions, with the capability of scheduling the system behavior by the hour (CO2 delivery, mixing rate, etc.) or easily creating a closed loop that automatically increases mixing and CO2 delivery based on incoming light.
Algae Lab Systems’ Algae Connect Monitoring, Control and Data Logging system
Algae Connect™ seamlessly integrates with the onboard sensors for dissolved oxygen, pH level, water and ambient temperatures, incoming PAR (and optional add-on sensors), sampling up to 60x/minute.
The system includes a User Journal that stores timed nutrient inputs and yields with the other stored data, allowing display graphs of all sensor data alongside the yields and nutrient inputs to visualize highest performing grow techniques. Data is stored for up to one year, and can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet and downloaded.
An extension box is available for more than 1 PBR, with identical sensors, controls, and data monitoring. It attaches via USB to the main AlgaeConnect system.
