Horticultural Process Automation

HORTICULTURAL PROCESS AUTOMATION

Software and hardware manufacturer

Our recognised products combine to offer growers bespoke solutions for automating the control and monitoring of all crucial processes. The systems we supply incorporate the latest industry high technologies. Installation plans are modular and decentralised in conception, which means highly flexible solutions for growers making the transition. At the heart of each system is a GSC computer, which features an ergonomic man-machine interface, customizable software, Internet connectivity, and other plus points (for example, a touch screen). Trouble-free, fibre-optic cable connects the GSC to outlying in/out modules (AFPs). These receive the measurement signals from Greenspec designed sensors and provide the output signals to handle all types of controlled equipment.

Greenspec provides complete, end-to-end solutions. We know growers are not experts in the art of the horticultural automation, but our experience guarantees that those who choose our products will quickly become masters of their domain. Our integrated solutions will make the transition to automated process control a smooth one. Please contact us for more detailed information. Always at your service, we are keen to hear about and help with new ideas and projects. We have a worldwide network of local dealers who install our products and, along with our HelpDesk, provide ongoing advice and customer support.
