Providing You With The Means To Succeed

Based on your needs for higher accuracy and reliability in monitoring water content (WC), electrical conductivity (EC) and the temperature in substrates, Grodan has introduced a state-of-the-art innovation: the GroSens wireless, multi-sensor measuring system. This wireless and flexible multi-sensor measuring system enables highly accurate and reliable 24/7 real-time monitoring of the WC, EC and temperature of the root environment. The GroSens system – in combination with Grodan’s stone wool substrate products and advice – is the best way to achieve optimum results in production and cost savings.

Highly Accurate WC Measurement

The GroSens system provides highly accurate, 24/7 insight into the WC. Based on statistically reliable trials, the GroSens system measures the WC more accurately than existing water content meters (WCM). With its highly improved WC measurement, the GroSens system is an indispensable instrument for growers who want to use professional, precision irrigation to achieve optimal yield and quality.

Accurate WC measurements in the stone wool substrate – which are supplied throughout the day and night – allow a greater control over your crops. These measured values are immediately displayed as graphs on the climate-control computer and/or any external computer, and this provides detailed, accurate information for precision irrigation. Whether connected to an external computer or your internal network, the GroSens system makes it possible to read the detailed values for each sensor.

Highly Accurate EC Measurement

The GroSens system provides highly accurate, 24/7 insight into the EC. Based on statistically reliable trials, the GroSens system measures the EC more accurately than existing WCMs. With its highly improved EC measurement, the GroSens system takes accurate control of the EC to the next level. For those who want precision EC management, the GroSens system will open the way for further yield optimisation and improved quality. Accurate EC measurements in the stone wool substrate – which are supplied throughout the day and night – allow a greater control over your crops.

Custom Made Configurations Possible

Because the GroSens system is modular, it can be scaled to multiple configurations. The GroSens basic set has been designed to guarantee reliable, representative information of WC and EC figures for individual watering sections. Depending on the size of the greenhouse – and if the grower wants to take the next step in precision irrigation – all of the components in the GroSens basic set are available separately. This makes it possible to configure the GroSens system perfectly for each individual grower.
