The Connected Screening module connects the advanced software of the Hoogendoorn iSii process computer with a wide range of Svensson climate screens to allow full control over humidity transfer, light transmission and energy savings.
Field research within the NGG 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 Growth Management 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. The Connected Screening software calculates the effect on ventilation, humidity transfer, energy savings and transmission of light and outgoing long wave radiation based on the Svensson screen characteristics and position. With this accurate data growers can achieve more screening hours without risking high humidity levels below fully closed screens. This allows growers to achieve a homogeneous climate, higher crop yields and up to 20% extra energy savings. Data is presented at a glance via a custom-made visualization.
Thanks to knowledge exchange and innovation, Connected Screening allows all the benefits of the Next Generation Growing (NGG). The result: healthier crops with higher yields needing less energy input.
