Exciting new weight sensor solution from Aranet and Voshol Techniek now available in Australia
Recognising the fundamental significance of precise weight measurement in greenhouse crop management, Aranet and Voshol Techniek have developed an innovative weight sensor and frame solution. This new sensor solution aims to support growers in managing their crops, providing them with precise real-time measurements.
Benefits of this new sensor solution
This new product was developed in cooperation with Anthura BV. Their case study findings reveal the key benefits of this new weight-sensing solution.
Wireless and Consistent Weighing
Traditionally, weighing seedlings in a greenhouse environment has been both labour-intensive and prone to inaccuracies. Aranet and Voshol Techniek have revolutionized this process by introducing a wireless and continuous weighing solution, eliminating the need for manual measurements.
One of the standout features of this system is its wireless sensors integrated into the frames. This innovation allows growers, to move plants with sensor trays without compromising measurement accuracy, effectively optimizing greenhouse space and operational flexibility.
By employing this precision weighing solution, Anthura BV achieved an essential milestone: weighing plants directly in their cultivation trays. This approach provided more representative readings, thereby enabling precise comparisons and informed decision-making.
The advanced weighing frame, designed by Voshol and featuring adjustable screws at each corner, ensures perfect levelling and prevents uneven water distribution, enhancing plant health and growth.
Efficient Data Collection and Application
Real-time weight data is effortlessly collected via Aranet’s wireless system, empowering horticulturists with up-to-the-minute information crucial for effective crop management.
However, this collaborative effort transcends mere weight measurement. It empowers horticulturists to optimize plant growth and implement precision irrigation strategies based on accurate data. Achieving optimal growth conditions and resource allocation for plants has never been more attainable.
In addition to its data collection capabilities, the Aranet ecosystem offers a user-friendly and comprehensive data management platform. Measure Soil VWC, CO2, PAR, and more with Sensors that effortlessly connect to the base station, which efficiently relays information to the Aranet Cloud. This ensures seamless accessibility to data from anywhere, even in cases of intermittent internet connectivity, thanks to the base station’s data storage capabilities.
