rack drive for greenhouse

In smaller sized greenhouses, a manual program opened and closed by hand could possibly be installed. These work easiest when the screen materials is backed by a monitor system.

Start time – when each morning will the display system start operation
Stop time – when in the afternoon will the screen system stop operation
Light level – at what light intensity will the screen be activated either to open or close
Maximum/minimum temperature – what exactly are the limits of temperature desired
Maximum/minimum humidity – What exactly are the limitations of humidity desired
Gap positions – this pieces the percent open or close position under different conditions such as early on a winter early morning to lessen thermal shock or through the summer to provide better shading. The gap steps and speed of movement can be controlled in a few systems.
Time delay – under changeable weather conditions this avoids frequent opening and closing
Wind speed – To lessen heat loss, the screen can be closed early under high wind speed conditions
Snow detection – this may open the screen and turn on heat when it begins to snow.
The standard system uses nylon monofilament or stainless Rack Drive For Greenhouse cables to support the screen materials. The screen material can either rest along with the network of cables or be suspended by hooks from the cables. A gearmotor powers a drum or rack and pinion that moves the leading edge of the screen materials. Control is definitely either with a manual change or electronic controller.

Based on the over, the grower is required to enter the following parameters into the controller:

A climate station is needed to provide outdoor light level, temperature, humidity, wind and rain or snow conditions.
