Wireless system for climate control and irrigation

After having been rewarded with the Innovation Award at the final Horti Fair exhibition, a few years ago, Sercom Regeltechniek BV, from Lisse, the Netherlands, have once again made a step in the further development of automatic climate control and storage.

With the release of the Wireless Xtender, Sercom have optimized the concept of wireless communication between a central climate computer and its sub-stations, or with stand-alone fertilizer dosing systems in open fields.

Sercom manufactures each part of their systems (e.g. print boards, chips and other hardware) themselves and write the software in-house. All of their systems supplied can be updated, without the need of replacing any of the hardware. As an important supplier of highly advanced climate control systems, Sercom is the first to apply radio technology to realize the possibility of long distance communication, in real-time.

The new two-way communication system, which will be formally introduced at the forthcoming IPM exhibition in Essen, Germany makes it possible to communicate between the main computer and maximum 16 sub-stations, over a distance of up to 5 kilometers. This offers many possibilities to control several locations from a central office and facilitates the option to expand production areas without the need of expensive and time-consuming wiring.

During the last year, Sercom have been testing their new product extensively at various locations and applications within the Netherlands and abroad and is now confident to release it commercially.

This innovation however, is expected to open new open doors to many more applications outside these fields and Sercom will be expanding their network of international partners to be able to service both their existing markets and the new ones.
