Biora Plant Growth Chambers

Biora Plant Growth Chambers provides the agricultural industry with the control and repeatability needed to efficiently sustain precise conditions, maximise production capabilities, product quality and security, whilst conserving water and energy use.

Building on MineARC’s successful capabilities in creating controlled environments for industrial safety, Biora’s componentry allows for the development, refinement and repetition of specific growth conditions. Clients benefit from high involvement in every aspect of the design and manufacture process, enabling us to provide the solution to best suit their needs.

All componentry is designed, manufactured, installed, commissioned and serviced by MineARC Systems.

Security and real-time monitoring of Biora is achieved through MineARC’s GuardIAN Control System. GuardIAN provides users with a secure, locally hosted control portal which is accessible via computer, tablet or smartphone with minimal set-up.

GuardIAN is an independent system that continuously monitors all vital operating systems, sending alarms and push notifications (email and text message) via Ethernet and/ or WiFi.

All diagnostics and real-time monitoring are easily accessible through a secure, locally hosted webpage; compatible with any computer, tablet or smartphone. The GuardIAN homepage features a summary of your entire Biora fleet and overall operational status, with the ability to drill down to a detailed report of each growth chamber.

In addition to it’s remote monitoring capabilities, GuardIAN can also be accessed by a user-friendly touchscreen HMI Control Panel, located on the face of each Biora Grow Chamber. Fan speed, fresh air intake and exhaust ports can all be controlled by GuardIAN via the HMI Control Panel.

GuardIAN provides the added advantage of security within the growth chamber, with an internal IP camera; accessible remotely. A number of optional security access solutions are available to protect your investment including:

  • Electric smart key lockable door with PIN code or swipe access
  • External IP cameras installed for both security and remote chamber monitoring
  • Internal temperature, humidity and pressure sensors.
  • Optimization of growth area with single and multi-tier internal design options for crops with different heights
  • Fully insulated structure
  • Optional built-in irrigation equipment
  • Designed to suit client requirements and specifications for the entire research project life cycle
  • Design can allow for transport with minimal installation, including forklift and crane access points for a semi modular system if intended
  • Airlock options available
