SERCOM Introduces Unique Wireless System for Climate Control and Irrigation
After having been rewarded with the Innovation Award at the final Horti Fair exhibition, a few years ago, SERCOM Regeltechniek B.V., from Lisse, The Netherlands, have once again made a remarkable step in the further development of automatic climate control and storage.
With the release of the Wireless Xtender, SERCOM has optimised the concept of wireless communication between a central climate computer and its sub-stations, or with stand-alone fertiliser dosing systems in open fields.
SERCOM is market leader in their home country for the climate control of storage rooms for flower bulbs. The company is equally active within the horticulture. They manufacture each part of their systems (e.g. print boards, chips and other hardware) themselves and write the software in-house. All of their systems supplied can be updated, without the need of replacing any of the hardware. As an important supplier of highly advanced climate control systems, SERCOM is the first to apply radio technology to realise the possibility of long distance communication, in real-time.
Two-way communication system
The new two-way communication system makes it possible to communicate between the main computer and maximum 16 sub-stations, over a distance of up to 5 kilometres. The system will be formally introduced at the forthcoming IPM exhibition in Essen, Germany. This offers many possibilities to control several locations from a central office. It facilitates the option to expand production areas without the need of expensive and time-consuming wiring.
During the last year, SERCOM has been testing their new product extensively at various locations and applications within the Netherlands and abroad and is now confident to release it commercially.
This innovation however, is expected to open new open doors to many more applications outside these fields. And SERCOM will be expanding their network of international partners to be able to service both their existing markets and the new ones.
