The fully automated AEtrium Dosing Unit (ADU) is a fully integrated nutrient measurement, dispensing, pH monitoring and nutrient adjustment system for either indoor or greenhouse applications. It doses volumetrically or via integrated sensor feedback from the dosing reservoir. The AEssenseGrows Guardian Grow Manager software (GGM) provides fingertip control through an easy-to-use variable adjustment interface wirelessly accessible from any desktop, tablet, or mobile phone access point.
The Automated Dosing Unit can automatically dose from any of 11 available liquid nutrient sources. Typically 2 of these are reserved for pH management (up/down) but the assignment is fully optional for all 11 fertilizer inputs. This fertilizer and irrigation system is optionally referred to as a "fertigation" system.
Each of the standard irrigation pumps offer a maximum flow rate of 15.8 gallons/minute (60 lpm) x2 from the integrated reservoir. Temperature, pH, and Electrical Conductivity (EC) are measured constantly and reported to the ADU on board computer for analysis by the GGM. This makes the AEtrium ADU ideal for any sprinkler, dripper, poly pipe, or flood and drain hydroponic system for greenhouse or indoor applications.
In addition to fertigation, the GGM software can be extended with the use of smart relays to control the complete grow environment from nutrients to air, CO2 management, humidity, temperature, fans, vents, lighting control and timing, and input water and treatment recovery systems.
