The standalone hydroponic system
The GrowStack© vertical grow units were developed initially for York University, with a view to other educational and research facilities, where the modular design and ease of use will make it an invaluable tool. York University contacted us to look at LED projects in their brand new biology block and we designed the GrowStack S4 prototype for them to see. Subsequently we have supplied 7 units to fill one of the new rooms, and have the prospect of more rooms to fit out with units, saving up to 50% energy cost per growing room.
The unique modular design of the GrowStack system means that lights can be raised or lowered to match growth.
1. Touchscreen HMI Control
Allows 3 independent lighting programs and up to 4 irrigation cycles per day, all on a real-time clock.
2. Lighting options
Cassettes can be fitted with the L series tubes or the C series dimmable bar lamps. We are currently testing a phone app which can be used to dim the lights remotely via Bluetooth.
3. Lighting cassette and grow trays
Moveable, allowing for variable lighting height . The unit can support up to 3 levels of Valoya lights, giving AP67, AP673L, G2, NS12 and Architectural spectrums.
4. Irrigation cassette
Can link with up to three ebb/flood benches. Fitted with a particle and UV filter unit and a variable flowrate pump.
