VC2000 Vent Drive And Controls From Wadsworth Controls Systems

Wadsworth Control Systems VC2000 Vent Drive

Wadsworth Control Systems is introducing the VC2000 Vent Drive, an enhanced line of drive units with an entirely new gear box. Superior protection is achieved with polyester epoxy paint, a more compact design and a new design for the internal limit switch that now allows 14 feet of travel. Total gear reduction and output torque specifications are consistent, so the new line can be added to an existing installation to work side by side.

In addition, Wadsworth Control Systems is introducing the new Wireless Alarm Manager, which is ideal for the many growers who have ranges away from phone lines. It’s critical to have a phone system to connect you to your greenhouse in case of an alarm state that could wipe out the entire crop.

EnviroSTEP, VersiSTEP and STEP Up controls all have design changes. EnviroSTEP and VersiSTEP integrated controls have a bright new screen making it even easier to read them. The STEP Up staged control has a bright new screen and evolutionary changes to the user interface.

Vertical Farming Looks to Go Mainstream

The University of the District of Columbia is the nation’s only urban land-grant university, so it was a particularly appropriate setting for the Association of Vertical Farming (AVF) to host the AVF Summit 2017 on September 22. The summit was a mix of education, advocacy, and policy discussion about urban agriculture — vertical farming in particular — targeted at finding ways to broaden its adoption in cities around the country and around the world. You’ve probably heard quite a bit in recent months about vertical farming — systems for growing food in stacked layers in completely controlled environments, applying inputs such as light, water, and fertilizer in precise amounts. While there’s some use of these systems in greenhouse settings, in many cases, urban farmers are repurposing abandoned buildings or even shipping containers. Match the availability of these facilities in most large urban areas with big cities’ limited access to fresh, […]
