The Argus System is designed for comprehensive control in a wide range of agricultural, horticultural, and other protected production system applications. Its extensive features include: sensor measurement, equipment control, data logging, monitoring, and alarms. Standard system features include comprehensive software modules for controlling environment, irrigation, and nutrient management, as well as many other types of equipment control.
Each Argus System consists of:
a fully integrated environmental and irrigation control system
an advanced data recording program
a sophisticated and highly configurable equipment monitoring and alarm system
For maximum safety and reliability, Argus uses dedicated control hardware and software. The PC that is used to access the Argus System does not control the greenhouse. All control programs and settings are located and run on dedicated Argus controllers that have been specially built for this purpose. They provide reliable, real-time operation in dynamic horticultural environments. Whether your PC is directly connected or operated remotely, dedicated Argus controllers are constantly monitoring and managing your equipment. In this way, even if your PC is turned off or breaks down, the controllers continue to do their job. With distributed control, each controller on the network maintains its own settings and programs, and keeps working even if there are problems with other components of the system.
