No need for a physical box to control your lights, fans, heaters and other devices. Everything can be controlled through the software.
Exhaust and Intake AC fans
Directly connect two air fans in sockets specially made for AC fans, placed on the front of the Smart Grow Controller. When powered your fans don’t require more physical controllers, just plug and play in the software.
4 of 8 special Light exits
There are four light sockets on the left side of the Smart Grow Controller designed specially for electro-magnetic ballast, the old type.
8 of 8 exits
On the two sides of the Smart Grow Controller you find eight sockets for all kinds of lights, lamp fixtures, EC fans, switcher and more.
Event emails are send automatically to users after a certain condition is triggered, such as, a controller being disconnected, exceeding set measurement, etc.
The Timer function allows you to insert the start and end time in: 24 hours, Week, Month, Year format. There can be multiple Timer cycles connected to the same exit.
Heater and Cooler
The functions Heater and Cooler need to be connected to a temperature sensor, heater/cooler exit and a light sensor or a timer function with set day/night cycle. The hysteresis determines the croissant condition of the contact. If the hysteresis is set to -2°C and the day/night temp. to 29 °C, then your heater will switch ON at 27 °C and switch OFF when the temp. rises to 29 °C. Your heater will remain OFF until the value drops bellow 22 °C. The Cooler function works the same way as the Heater, with the only difference that the hysteresis is reversed during the cooling.
Humidifier and Dehumidifier
When when using a Humidifier and Dehumidifier functions choose the relative humidity at day and at night time and set the desired hysteresis.
The Fan function has 5 options to control fan speed. Connecting it to an intake fan exit and an exhaust fan exit will let you set the negative pressure.
You can activate the Impulse timer function by connecting an input. When that happens the timer will start counting time. After the output has been ON for that amount of time it will be turned OFF again. You can set the Interval between impulses. The impulse will happen no matter what the state of the input will be in the mean time. You will always get a impulse of that certain length after the timer has been activated.
On pull delay and Off pull delay
The On pull delay timer function will turn the output ON after a delay. Off fall delay will turn the output OFF after a delay. In other words, the delay is how long you want the timer to be turned ON (for On pull delay) or how long you want the timer to be turned OFF (for Off pull delay). The amount of delay is set in the Timer field.
Greater than and Less than
The functions Greater than and Less than need to be connected to a sensor. Depending on the sensor you connect, the options will vary in value and hysteresis. The variable input (in green) will be converted into ON/OFF output (in red). This output can be greater than or less than the input according to your configuration.
The Changer function can enable or disable input signals in a way that when one side is engaged another side is disengaged.
The Speed controller function regulates fan speed and provides reversing of the motor and dynamic breaking when following a manual input.
The Light controller function can help you turn multiple lights ON and OFF simultaneously, or at different times depending on the parameters you set. Using a temperature sensor, this function controls light timing, automation, dimming and safety measures, preventing overheating of your equipment. The sunrise and sunset feature enable you to set asynchronous times that allow for shorter flowering times.
Note: Inputs are set from the right side, so that the result comes out from the left. These are programmable logic operations with true or false values. With the original values "A", as input, and an outcome after applying the operation as output "x". Each logic gate can have multiply inputs "A", "B", "C", "D", "E"... etc, but not more than one output "x" .
Multiple sensor support
The Smart Grow Controller comes ready to use with a SGC Temperature, Humidity and Light sensor with 4m wire and software. You can connect up to 30 different sensors and satellites. Prepare the sensor for use by connecting it to one of the addressing ports of the Smart Grow Controller, then selecting it from the software. To use the sensor, go to the Rooms menu, create a New Room and place the sensor inside. Connect the variable output (green dot) to an appropriate function from the toolbar on the right and the sensor will work according to your configuration. Inside each sensor you will find a programmable alarm setting, which is optional.
