Hydroponix is an innovative valve and sensor system that leverages cutting-edge technology to adjust humidity, light, and temperature to the precise values required for optimal plant growth. Designed to be an automated smart farming system, Hydroponix empowers growers to achieve maximum yields with minimal manual intervention. In this case study, we will explore how Hydroponix works, its key features and benefits, and the technology used in its design.
The Hydroponix system comprises of modular units that integrate an irrigation system and a set of necessary sensors, placed on the growing beds. Data from the sensors is sent to a central node, which processes and displays all the information on a server. The modular design of Hydroponix enables growers to achieve unlimited scalability, making it an ideal solution for commercial, urban, and home farming.
Hydroponix utilizes advanced technology, with the central node built on the ESP32 platform, while the modules are based on STM32. The ESP32 is responsible for monitoring and controlling illumination, temperature, and ventilation, storing all data, and displaying graphs over a specified period. The STM32, on the other hand, controls pumps, pH and TDS of water, humidity, and dosing of fertilizers. The system can be remotely accessed and controlled via a browser, making it easy to manage.
Hydroponix is an automated system that ensures optimal plant growth by adjusting humidity, light, and temperature to the precise values required for each stage of plant development. The system’s precise control of irrigation ensures that plants receive the right amount of water and nutrients, while the pH and TDS sensors regulate nutrient levels. The sensors also monitor the environment, adjusting the settings as required to ensure optimal conditions for plant growth.
Hydroponix is powered by a 220V supply, making it easy to integrate into most environments.
Hydroponix offers numerous benefits to growers. The system is fully automated, significantly reducing manual intervention, and increasing productivity. Remote access and control via a browser makes management more accessible, while the system’s efficient use of water and fertilizer is more environmentally friendly. The modular design makes Hydroponix highly scalable, from small to large-scale farming applications.
Hydroponix is suitable for commercial farming, urban farming, and home gardening. The system is ideal for growing a range of plants, including vegetables, herbs, and fruits. The system is also perfect for areas where traditional farming methods are impossible, such as deserts or areas with poor soil quality.
Hydroponix is a state-of-the-art smart farming system that ensures optimal plant growth by adjusting humidity, light, and temperature to the precise values required for each stage of plant development. With its modular design, remote access, and control, and precise control of irrigation, pH, and TDS, Hydroponix is an environmentally friendly, productive, and scalable solution for a wide range of applications.
