The Connected Screening module connects the advanced software of the Hoogendoorn Growth Management iSii process computer with the wide range of Svensson climate screens to allow full control over 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 moisture 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, with as a 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, developed specifically 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, worldwide innovator in horticultural automation. The Connected Screening software calculates the effects of top ventilation and (double) screen(s) on humidity transfer, energy savings and transmission of light and outgoing long wave radiation, based on the Svensson screen characteristics and position. With this control on accurate data growers can achieve an optimal growth at humidity and radiation levels that makes crops more resilient at fully closed screen conditions. It enables 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 and weekly report.
Thanks to knowledge exchange and innovation, Connected Screening allows all the benefits of Plant Empowerment, resulting in healthier crops, with higher yields, needing less energy input.
