DMC’s customer was looking for a Siemens-based solution to control and automate the environmental conditions of a marijuana grow house. DMC began by meeting with the client to lay out plans for how the system should work and initial layout of the controls. We then programmed the PLCs and HMIs to provide multi-zone recipe based environmental and lighting controls.
The system DMC built provides complete automated control of the following:
- Air temperature (heating and cooling)
- CO2 concentration
- Feed System (nutrient dosing and root flush)
- Lighting (simulated sunrise / sunset daily cycles)
- Access to the unit
- Water temperature
