While digital control panels have found a real niche in wastewater treatment and lift station operations; we’re finding that they’re beginning to branch out into other industries – namely clean and green initiatives.
One of the more interesting places they’re finding traction is in farming and renewable food sources. Drought, urbanization and a wide range of factors are making it more difficult to grow food. As humans have adapted to this new reality, they’ve begun to embrace indoor farming – that while it’s efficient – creates a whole new set of challenges to grapple with.
Today, we’re going to talk about how control panels have made a difference in this field and what they can potentially do for your business. Let’s jump right in!
Almost every kind of farm production relies on electricity – but particularly when it comes to managing drive pumps and water flow. Misreadings or failure of these pumps can be both catastrophic and costly. Digital control panels can help by giving you up to the minute, accurate reports on your crop’s water usage and flow – as well as helping to identify issues before they become significant problems. This means a more dependable, predictable operation.
The whole idea of embracing green energy and renewables is that it’s more cost effective and productive. Panels help to monitor voltage, currents, power factors, water floor and any number of functions. What panels can do is make sure that these functions are performing with consistency – meaning less wasted energy; or worse – underpowered components. On average, digital control panels can help reduce wasted energy by as much as 30%.
The most valuable component of digital control panels is your ability to monitor usage across your farm. There’s a constant flow of data on their status and overall health – making it easier for you to analyze and diagnose issues, identify opportunities for improved efficiency and on the whole, makes it easier for you to manage both your assets and facilities.
As you can see, there are a variety of ways digital control panels can help your facility. If you’d like to learn more, feel free to contact us today and we’ll be happy to provide you with a free consultation. Until then – good luck!
