ferti droid pump system ferti droid pump system with tech and plans

First product in it's line of Artificially Intelligent grow systems for the medium to large scale growing facilities

The ferti.droid communicates by sending email or text messages about actions and events. This can be remotely controlled by any mobile device.

Brain power is what really separates the ferti.droid™ from any other fertigation system. This multi-stage system is built with industrial process control sensors and dosing pumps in both the first and second process stages.

The "brain" of the system is an industrial PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) with an intelligent human to machine interface (HMI) screen.

Three Process Stages of ferti.droid™


The first stage prepares the raw material for processing

The second stage adds the necessary nutrient and additives as per the dosing recipe

The third stage interfaces and controls the irrigation

An optional fourth stage is available that can recover a majority of the irrigation run-off and reprocesses the water, thus greatly reducing the demand for water

A ferti-droid™ system can easily be added into any existing grow facility with little or no interruption of the daily grow activities. This will instantly increase productivity and yields by eliminating one of the costly and labor intensive daily tasks.

Control

This industrial computer brain does all the thinking for the grower with artificial intelligence to monitor and control the fertilization process.

Cycle Specification

The program recipe controls nine separate dosing injectors in the two process stages and can be programmed from a simple fertilization schedule to complex mixing that can change at specific intervals throughout the grow cycle.

Analytics

By utilizing powerful data analytics to access hundreds of data points, the ferti.droid™ helps the grower fine tune the fertigation system to ensure that every plant gets what it needs and that nothing is wasted.

grow.droid™ Overview FAQ


How many plants can I grow?

The standalone containers, grow.droid™ II, can grow up to 72 plants. The grow.droid™ Enterprise models can grow from 216 to 1296 plants.

Do you have solar or other green lighting options?

All our products come standard with State of the Art, high efficient LED grow lighting systems. Solar panels and alternative power sources are available upon request.

How long do you guarantee the products?

1 year full warranty and low price extended warranties available for up to 5 years on most products.

How does it get installed?

Installation is included in the price of the unit or system, although shipping is not.

How long does it take?

Typically installation, setup and training can take from 1 week to several weeks depending on the configuration and the project.

How much does it cost?

Check with a sales consultant in your area for detailed information on specific products and services.

How long does it take to get a return on my investment?

When growing Cannabis, the return on investment can be as little as six months. Many factors can effect this and usually it take 2 to 3 grow cycles to “dial-in” the operations and obtain maximum yields.

What if I have technical issues?

Our units come with a year of technical support. After the warranty period, there is a nominal annualy fee for tactical support and extended warranties. All grow.droid™ products can be remote monitored and have active fault detection.

What if I only need some of the equipment or technology?

We can work with you to determine the best solution to fit your needs.

Can I upgrade to a larger space later?

Yes, absolutely. Technology is scaleable and can grow with you!

grow.droid™ Technical FAQ


Is grow.droid™ software on a peer to peer where by one client computer acts as a server or does your software need a standalone server or is the information data "cloud based" or is the droid system simply hard drive driven on each machine. I did notice one system was cloud based.

The CognetiX software is embedded into the grow.droid™ product line. The smaller systems utilize embedded software and cloud based systems. The larger system such as the Enterprise Factory have local processing platforms as well as cloud based services.

What made you decide to go with 1600w LED lights?

We utilize the newest technology in LED lighting which provides computer control intensity and light frequency. LED lighting is part of the standard for Controlled Environment Agriculture and is 40% more efficient than alternatives. LED lighting produces significantly less heat which reduces energy cost even more. Many recent studies have confirmed that these new generation LED fixtures can produce better results than previous lighting systems.

Are the LED lights capable of being ratcheted up and down or are they fixed?

Yes, each light unit comes with a ratcheting hanging system which can adjust the height of the lights by approximately 2 feet.

What is meant by "Industrial Controls"?

All grow.droid™ products are controlled and managed by industrial quality PLC based controls and sensors borrowed from other industries such as water treatment. The systems are custom designed and programmed to provide high accuracy and long life. We do not use hobby or kit type components.

Does the grow.droid™ have air condition and dehumidifies?

All grow.droid™ products are equipped with fully integrated air conditioning and humidity control systems. The environment is continually monitored by environmental sensors which tells the control system to turn on or off units such as humidifiers, de-humidifiers and Air conditioners. We do not just set a thermostat.
