Intelli Dose kit comes with: - IntelliDose controller with software - Dual Mini Peri Pump - Sample Pot The Intellidose is an intelligent dosing controller ideal for hobby growers or small commercial systems. It controls pH & EC/CF/TDS. Its unique function is the ability to use up to 8 part dosing for precise nutrient management. The IntelliDose is ideal for recirculating hydroponics systems whether it be NFT or DFT. Also can be used for aeroponics or fertigation on run to waste using a simple batch nutrient tank that is monitored by a sample pot. It has its own ‘Intelli’ software so it can link to P.C. via a usb cable or just controlled directly off a simple to navigate screen.
Description

Intelli Dose with USB and probes 24V DC supply - includes IntelliGrow software

The intelligent hydroponic doser.  Now with 8 part dosing!

 •Works tirelessly to keep your nutrient tank in perfect balance.

•Automatically adds nutrients and corrects pH as the plants feed.

•1 to 8  part nutrients, pH lower/raise, precise irrigation timer

•Automatic  scheduling  for dosing  ratios and TDS

•Built-in USB – PC interface with USB cable and IntelliGrow software included.  

•Simple to operate – AutoSet

•Good looking and smart – the perfect companion for your nutrient tankSo, who needs 8 part dosing?

As our understanding of the plants requirements increases, nutrient manufacturers are producing more complex formulations to try to achieve a perfect match between the plants needs at every stage of growth and the nutrient supplied.  It is now common to find nutrient regimes that have 3 or 4 main nutrient parts together with 3 or 4 additives.  All of these nutrients and additives need to be added (dosed) in the correct strengths and at the correct times in the plants life cycle.

 

Simple to operate

The secret to its simplicity is that the controller can be configured to suit various systems and nutrient parts and when this is done all of the irrelevant settings disappear from the menus and PC screens.   In addition to this, the controller can even be instructed to set itself up. 

 

Knowledge is power

Once you have used the PC interface you will never go back to a controller without it.  The reason is simple; you get to see all the settings in one list – no more fumbling around looking for a menu screen.  You also get accurate logs of exactly what happened – you can see at a glance just what effect each dose is having and if anything starts to go wrong you will see it immediately.  In addition, the PC can sound an alarm or even phone you if anything goes wrong.

 

Special functions

The precision irrigation output can be used to switch on an irrigation pump periodically to irrigate plants grown in pots or bags.  This can also have different settings for day/night.

The controller can be set to operate with a different TDS for day and night.  Plants need weaker nutrient when they are transpiring in the heat of the day and stronger nutrient at cooler times.  Now you can give them exactly what they need. An “add water output” can be used to reduce the TDS as required.   AutoSet may be used to initially set the dosing timings.  Just fill reservoir tank with plain water and stock tanks with regular solution – then select AutoSet.  The system will ask a few questions and then perform a series of tests (by dosing and measuring the results) in order to automatically set the system dosing times.   

From the total of 8 outputs you allocate outputs to suit your system functions.

For standard 2 part nutrients, proportional dosing may be selected so that it makes bigger doses when it is a long way from the setpoint and smaller doses as the setpoint is approached.   The PC interface allows a schedule of A:B:C:D etc ratios and TDS to be entered so that as the weeks pass and the crop matures the nutrient mix and TDS automatically change to provide the plants with the best possible nutrient.   Now, how intelligent is that?

 

The user friendly “IntelliGrow” software makes setting up and monitoring a breeze.  It even provides for alarms to dial out to a pocket pager or send a TXT to a mobile phone should anything go wrong. (internet connection is required)

The software has a number of “wizards” to assist with setting up and also to remind you when maintenance is required.

They also warn if settings are entered that might be incorrect and prevent you from making drastic mistakes during calibrations etc

All alarms can be independently silenced ie the buzzer on the unit, the sound card in the PC and the pager dial-out

 

Typical installation is with peristaltic pumps included in the kit
