The VWS is a fully automatic overhead irrigation and spraying system for young plant nurseries. Each bay has a fixed beam with an advanced software control system to carry out your watering strategy automatically. This watering system is known for its proven horizontal hose guiding system.
The VWS is an irrigation boom with fixed beams installed in each bay. It is available in two configurations; the VWS-I runs on a single pipe, and the VWS-II runs on a double tube. The boom generally drives over two tubes in the bay in case of a high bay width or when stability during irrigation is highly required. The water boom can run on the existing heating pipes for easy installation. The height of the boom above the crop can be adjusted.
The automatic system takes care of the supply of power and water. Due to the presence of a fixed watering boom per greenhouse, it is possible to water all areas in a short time. As a result of the high capacity, this proven system is very well applicable for seeds and plants which require regular watering.
The system consists of a boom with a drive unit, a planet for guiding and tensioning the hose, and special hangers on which the pipe for driving is mounted. It includes support rollers for the hose and a guiding system for a steel wire for traction of the planet. The irrigation boom carries a Dosatron, a mixing device with a 50-liter reservoir, and a 10-liter tank for fertilizer solution. The watering boom has high flexibility as it has a valve for every nozzle and pipe, e.g., watering pipes, spray pipes, and plant protection liquid pipes.
The watering boom has a climate control software program interface. The software collects information from the climate control software program. When it receives a specific signal (for example, the natural light level rises above a certain level, etc.), the watering boom starts watering.
Advanced software is used in the computer control system. This allows you to carry out multiple commands, e.g., water table 2 and supply table 23 with plant protection. The watering boom can also be operated and monitored at the computer or using a handheld device (phone, tablet, etc.).
The operator can turn off every tap separately at the watering boom or via remote controls. The Viscon service office can control the watering boom via Viscon Connect over the internet. Quick and direct maintenance can be realized in this way.
