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 & 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 & dosing pumps in both the first & 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 & additives as per the dosing recipe

The third stage interfaces & controls the irrigation

An optional fourth stage is available that can recover a majority of the irrigation run-off & 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 & yields by eliminating one of the costly & labor intensive daily tasks.

Control

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

Cycle Specification

The program recipe controls nine separate dosing injectors in the two process stages & 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 & that nothing is wasted.

How long do you guarantee the products?

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

The ROI is less than 12 months when used for growing cannabis products.

What if I have technical issues?

Can I upgrade to a larger space later?

Yes, absolutely. Technology is scaleable & 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.

grow.droid™ I - Tent is completely self-contained & self-running. grow.droid™ II - Container uses SCADA to bring advanced features & allow for unlimited expansion, grow.droid™ II also uses the same internal software as grow.droid™ I for back up & redundancy purposes.

grow.droid™ system explains security cameras. The standard surveillance in most states is having a DVR capable of recording a min of 40 days for state approved facilities only. Does each container come with a DVR system with a min of 3TB to 5TB hard drives for 40 day monitoring? On the average home grower obviously, this is not a big deal.

We have built in several different protocols for the GrowDroidV2 that allow it to store Video onsite & offsite. We can also use most 3rd party DVR systems, so if the customer has a specific brand or has their own system we can integrate into that system.

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

With that type of space, would have thought 600w to 1000w would be more than sufficient. The coverage area fits best for our dimensions & allowed for some overlapping to achieve more penetration.

Are the LED lights computer controlled / Switchable from veg to flower or full spectrum?

Yes the lights will automatically switch from veg to bloom state. This is user configurable.

Are the controls of each unit capable of being wiped clean with isopropyl alcohol due to sticky resin from plant material & daily use?

Yes all surfaces can be cleaned with alcohol, they are NEMA rated cabinets.

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

Yes, each light has 4 ratcheting hangers.

Is there a reason why you may have chosen charcoal filters for odor mitigation rather than controllable ionizing filters?

The filters for odor control will not be included. We only do air quality & that is only in the bigger systems. We can also integrate HEPA filters upon request.
