HubBox and Wireless Gateway
The HubBox is the central server of the system. It runs the AlgaeConnect™ software and communicates wirelessly with the SPARC Control boxes via the Wireless Gateway. Each HubBox can communicate with up to 12 SPARC devices for a total of up to 120 sensed and controlled parameters. HubBoxes can be connected to remotely from tablets or phones within the network to view all parameters in real time as you walk around the ponds or PBRs. Locate the HubBox indoors or in a cabinet. Wireless range can be expanded with ALS-REP1 repeaters.
SPARC Control Boxes
AlgaeConnect™ wireless SPARC boxes are waterproof, heat tolerant, rugged control units that are mounted at the pond or PBR. Each box has 4 dual sensor input ports and 2 solid state relays, either DC or AC. They communicate using autonomous wireless system with the HubBox. They are independent of the HubBox, and will continue to implement control algorithms such as CO2 control even when the HubBox is turned off. These boxes are rugged, lightweight, low power, and can be easily mounted to walls, posts, or cabinets
Sensors and Control Modules
Choose from a wide variety of high grade sensors optimized for the demands of algae growing: pH, temperature, DO, nitrate, ammonium, algae density, light, flow rate, liquid level. \nOur sensors come in various technologies: chemical, optical, galvanic, autoclavable, ultrasonic, and various mounting types and sizes. Our control modules can interface to just about any of your electrical devices and nclude relays, PWM circuits, and analog outputs.
