HMI Control System for Plant Growth Chamber

Supplementing light will affect plant growth and the development of metabolic processes. Optimal light conditions will vary across plant variety, crop and region.

Adjusting light wavelength will impact disease resistance, taste and nutrition. Variations on light intensity, direction and distribution are just some of the conditions that can be manipulated within a Biora Walk-In or Reach-In Plant Growth Chamber.

Lights emit different colour spectrums, and although not all are visible to the human eye, they are inherent to plant growth. Photomorphogenesis is the growth pattern in plants in response to varied colour spectrums of light. As a plant develops, different spectrums become more critical; blue light may be necessary for propogation while red light is introduced later to promote flowering.

Too much or too little of a particular wavelength can hinder growth, produce blisters and block chlorophyll production which will eventually halt photosynthesis.

  • Custom lighting design based on requirements, including LED and HPS
  • Control over canopy, intensity and spectrum for day time and seasonal replication
  • Single and multi-tier opportunities
  • Optional high-quality built-in light measurement equipment for optimisation of growth yield

Biora Plant Growth Walk-In and Reach-In Chambers provide a range of advanced, highly efficient cooling, heating and ventilation control options.

Variable speed fans allow for adjustable volume air change out rates, and a choice of vertical or horizontal air flow. Clever design ensures uniform airflow and temperature across the chamber.

Redundancy measures are incorporated into all control systems to ensure conditions are maintained at all times.

Biora HVAC System, Air Flow Control

The monitoring and control of oxygen (O2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) is a standard feature of all Biora Plant Growth Walk-In and Reach-In Chambers. Additional gases such as nitrogen (N2) can be added as an option.

For CO2 removal and replacement, MineARC scrubbing technology can be utilised to reduce levels within the system to below 250ppm (0.025%) and a plenum CO2 additive system can be included with an adjustable flow rate.
