Hydroponics & Advanced Grow Lighting & Sensing Systems.

Hydroponics is the art and science of growing plants without soil. Hydroponics is an agricultural method that uses nutrient-rich water rather than soil to nourish and grow plants. Plants are grown without having to be immersed in soil or water. Hydroponics may be used where soilborne diseases may be transmitted to humans from soil-grown crops. Hydroponics is proved to have several advantages over soil gardening.

Hydroponics and the effects on plants.

Plants will uptake more vitamins and minerals, as the growing process is enhanced with Grow Lights, making the plants healthier and providing for massive yields.

Plants start from either cuttings or seeds, and are then suspended mid-air in a growing chamber. Plants are suspended in a dark enclosure or irrigation system, where nutrient-rich solutions are sprayed on the roots at certain intervals. Plants are placed in holes in the chamber raft and the roots dangle freely in water.

Plants are started in peat pellets in trays outside of the system. Plants can also grow at higher density, that makes a system more profitable. Grow lights can be efficiently used to grow crops and vegetables and produce higher yields even if they are out of season. Grow lights are also great for plants that don’t require heat to grow, because LED Grow Lights can especially provide greater Light Output where the heat output is low.

Plants are autotrophs, meaning they create their own food without consuming other plants. Hydroponics is also known as the culture of plants in nutrient solutions. Plants are similarly suspended, with the roots below in a closed, dark growing chamber.

Plants are anchored in holes, atop a panel of polystyrene foam. In hydroponics, aeroponics, and aquaponics plants grow at a higher density, helping make a system become more profitable.

Advanced Grow Lighting & Sensing System Features from Lumens³®; a Lighting & Sensing Systems Subsidiary of Uriel Corporation®.

Plants that touch a fixture catch fire, so consider using Uriel Corporation’s Grow Lighting Systems that have an automatic winch system to adjust the height of your grow lights. Grow lights are the best support for indoor plants and gardening.

Uriel Corporation’s Grow Light Systems have great advantages over other systems on the market. One of the many unique features of Uriel’s Systems include a sensor-operated automated winch that automatically detects plant growth. When the sensor detects plant growth, the sensor activates and raises the luminaire via the automated winch as plants grow. This allows the system to  provide light to plants as close as possible without burning them. This produces the greatest photosynthetic effect.

Providing Higher Light Output upon plants, of course, allows growers to accelerate the growing process for more aggressive budding and vegetative growth. Uriel Systems also allow Growers to receive automated sensor reports from their hydroponics operations.

Sensor reports include but are not limited to:

  • temperature,
  • humidity,
  • CO2 and oxygen levels,
  • air quality,
  • leaf color,
  • fruit color,
  • nutrient levels,
  • water levels,
  • pH levels,
  • mold,
  • mildew,
  • bacteria, and
  • a host of other variables.

This allows Growers to engage in botanical research and to automatically or manually control external devices. External device control is accomplished through smart settings controlled by computer or through smartphones.

Examples of some external devices include the control of:

  • fans,
  • thermostats,
  • oxygen and CO2 levels,
  • humidifiers,
  • nutrient dosage injectors,
  • fertigation systems,
  • air quality control systems,
  • systems that monitor the health of plants,
  • other devices.

Wavelength Control Features of Uriel Corporation’s Advanced Grow Lighting & Sensing Systems.

Other advantages of Uriel Grow Lights include programmable options. Uriel Systems have the advanced capability to deliver the exact wavelength of light required to provide a specific Light Recipe Cocktail for advanced budding and vegetative growth. These wavelengths can be adjusted for different plants. Uriel Systems further include smart controls and logic to allow control over sleep cycles to let plants rest in their desired dark cycles.

The wavelength can be changed as desired depending on what you are growing to produce different intended photosynthetic effects. This allows Growers and researchers to get better control and data for botanical research. Further, this allows growers to better control plant environments to provide light geared to specific species of plant life.

Uriel’s Sunrise/Sunset Functionality.

Uriel Systems also allow Growers to Provide Sunrise and Sunset control over the lighting process. This unique technology serves to not shock plants into photosynthesis from their sleep cycle.

Instead, with Uriel’s Sunrise Functionality, plants are fed light with slowly increasing brightness instead of blasting plants with the full brightness of 150,000 lumens all at once. Uriel’s Sunset Functionality works in reverse where light and brightness is diminished progressively to slowly get plants to go gently into their photosynthetic cycles or sleep cycles.

Uriel’s Sunrise Functionality works by automatically and progressively increasing LED Brightness at a rate that can be programmed to put plants gently into their photosynthetic mode. Conversely, Uriel’s Sunset functionality slowly and progressively dims the Grow Light LEDs at a programmable rate to put plants gently into their Sleep Cycles.

Uriel’s Sunrise/Sunset functionality works to put plants in their photosynthetic and sleep cycles without shocking them with full light intensity and by not immediately depriving plants of light. Uriel does not shock plants to blast them with light or to put them in total darkness immediately.  Uriel’s Sunrise/Sunset Functionality mimics nature to deliver the healthiest modes of operation to activate photosynthesis and sleep cycles in plants as nature does.

Uriel’s Systems also provide the most light with the added advantage of the huge energy savings since they utilize LED Light Sources. Typically, Uriel’s Grow Lights can save Growers a whopping 75% in energy savings compared to Grow Lights using Sodium Vapor and Metal Halide Grow Lights.

3D Printing & Rapid Prototyping.

Rapid Prototypes are developed utilizing 3D Printing to allow fast fabrication of any physical 3-D scale model. Rapid prototypes are made from the exact same CAD file which produces patent drawings and blueprints. Rapid Prototypes are made for a number of different reasons. Rapid Prototypes are widely-used in Product Engineering to allow fast fabrication of a physical and 3-D scale model. Rapid prototypes can be used to find out about and test different aspects of concepts, ideas, and assumptions. Design modeling includes a rich tradition utilizing prototypes of numerous kinds to discover and communicate evolving ideas and potential solutions.

3D Printing for producing variations of a design.

Rapid Prototyping allows us to refine and change designs where a design can be tweaked to quickly test iterative design improvements. Prototyping includes a critical and distinct place in the innovation process. Rapid prototypes usually vary from rough paper sketches and interactive simulations, to model component parts that appear and function like a part of one final product. Rapid Prototypes are developed with a CAD file along with a 3D Printer. Rapid prototypes can be used to find out about and test different elements of concepts, ideas, and assumptions. By combining wireframes, spreadsheets and rapid prototypes we’re able to define well-structured content in early stages of a project.

As increasing numbers of prototyping technologies emerge, and because the field of interaction design evolves, we’re often challenged to produce prototypes that will realistically simulate both physical and digital user experiences. Reverse engineering, design and inspection software permit you to engineer anything in 3D, and quickly and accurately go to 3D print or manufacture. The rapid prototyping process proceeds by developing an exact design based upon specifications. CAD programs are used to design the files manufacturers use to produce products for rapid prototypes, CNC, injection molds, and any other kind of manufacturing produced by machines. Product prototype design helps investors and future customers to take your ideas seriously and it usually lowers prototype development and commercialization costs.

3D Printing & Innovation.

Prototyping features a critical and distinct place in the innovation process. Rapid prototyping provides a fast and efficient method of exploring User Experience within the design process. Ideally, prototyping should take place as soon as possible. This gives innovators leverage for user research to ensure the design can be positively iterated with hard data from that research. Rapid prototyping looks to utilize the best effective testing methods available. The rapid prototyping process offers designers numerous advantages. Rapid prototyping, also referred to as solid freeform fabrication, is an additive layering process. Rapid prototyping is also currently getting into the arena of rapid manufacturing.

You can capture your world in 3D and see the power of physical photography using a 3D scanner and editing software. Now it is possible to Explore 3D printing on your desktop, for your office and at home with desktop 3D printers. 3D printing uses various CAD programs like Auto Desk Inventor and Solid Works. A well known application of 3D printing is ideal for the process of investment casting. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a 3D printing procedure that works the best for producing actual nylon or glass filled nylon parts. 3D Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Printers allow the production of parts at a click of a mouse.

Production 3D Printing.

A Production 3D Printer can throw open new markets in your business and offer you competitive advantages that you simply cannot find anywhere else. The advantages of elastomer 3D printing is its rapid turnaround of parts and the quality of its products. 3D scanning technologies can be used for instant, full-color 3D face capture. 3D Printers designed for production allow the generation of concept models with precision producing functional prototypes, master patterns, and tooling, with real commercial-ready parts. The most popular 3D printing and prototyping process is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM).

3D printers work like inkjet printers. Some key companies that make 3D printers are Stratasys for higher end systems, and the inexpensive MakerBot Replicator Desktop 3D Printer. 3D printing systems can be used for color 3D printing, medical, rapid prototyping and home printing applications utilizing a large variety of materials having different properties. Some of the newer higher end systems also can make parts that are transparent. Other materials have high heat properties where parts made can withstand higher temperatures. Such materials are useful for high temperature parts required for product.design. Other materials have high-strength, high-impact properties and yet others are rubber-like and flexible. Most materials can be sanded, and painted.

Material jetting remains a costly 3D printing technology, however, the final results can be spectacular. As 3D printing technology rapidly advances, buyers are rewarded with better-performing 3D printers with more materials at lower costs.

Other companies are making 3D printers based on multi jet technology, which mixes conventional 3D printing technology with new techniques and materials.

3D Printing Services.

Instead of purchasing a 3D Printer, there are wide variety of 3D printing services that designers can use. This eliminates the need to incur the expense of buying the actual equipment and supplies. Making use of these 3D printing services also allows companies or designers to outsource the production of prototype parts. Of course, if a designer or a company intends to engage in developing many prototype parts, and wishes to keep their designs confidential, it might be best to purchase a system for in-house use.
