The Connected Screening module connects the advanced software of the Hoogendoorn iSii process computer with the wide range of Svensson climate screens to allow full control of humidity transfer, light transmission and energy savings.
Field research within Plant Empowerment shows that the highest crop yields are achieved under double layer energy screens and completely closed screens (without gaps). However, in practice this is often hard to realize due to a mismatch of screen characteristics or inefficient use of climate control. This leads to an unstable greenhouse climate. The consequence: an increase in pests and diseases that negatively affects crop quality and yields. Hoogendoorn and Svensson respond to these needs with the new screening software Connected Screening, specifically developed for the iSii process computer.
Controlling your climate by connecting knowledge
The Connected Screening software is a technology and knowledge cross-over between Svensson, the market leader in climate screens, and Hoogendoorn, innovator in horticultural automation. Based on specific screen characteristics and positions the Connected Screening software calculates the effect on ventilation, humidity transfer, energy savings and transmission of light and outgoing longwave radiation. Data is presented at a glance in a custom-made visualization of your greenhouse to provide a quick overview of the situation in your greenhouse to help you realize more screening hours without risking a too high humidity under fully closed screens. This allows growers to achieve a homogeneous climate, higher crop yields and up to 20% extra energy savings.
Thanks to knowledge exchange and innovation, Connected Screening offers all the benefits of Plant Empowerment. The result: healthier crops with higher yields needing less energy input.
