SOLENOID VALVE CONTROL & FLOW MONITORING
The CONTROLLER controls the solenoid valve through which the water mixture is supplied to the irrigation system. The period and duration of irrigation is set by the growing program that the user selected in the SETTINGS menu. The serial number of the CONTROLLER is registered in the same menu.
Communication between the CONTROLLER and the SERVER is via Wi-Fi or Radio.
The CONTROLLER receives information about the irrigation schedule and works autonomously according to a given program until a new schedule is received. That is, even when the connection with the SERVER is interrupted there is no failure in the irrigation of plants.
The CONTROLLER receives data from the flow sensor and sends information about the current flow rate to the SERVER. The SERVER analyzes this data and sends an alarm message to the user if the parameter exceeds the permissible limits. For example, an increased flow rate of the water indicates a leak in the system and a reduced flow rate may be a sign of clogged nozzles. Information on the flow rate of the mixture is displayed in the MONITORING menu too.
