Sercom and 30MHz partner to unlock greenhouse data for optimisation

January 24, 2018

Sercom Regeltechniek BV, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-end climate control computers and 30MHz, a rapidly accelerating provider of smart-sensing technology have recently signed a cooperation agreement to strengthen and improve the real-time remote monitoring and registration of environmental conditions across cold storage and greenhouse contexts. Bringing together the power of climate control systems and wireless sensing technology, Sercom and 30MHz can empower end-users to add real-time sensor checks to their cold store and greenhouse management, and leverage the insights from both systems in a central dashboard.

Maximizing the impact of environmental data

30MHz provides customers with all the elements needed to deploy a wireless sensor network: sensors, a scalable private network and an analytics dashboard with visualizations and real-time alerts on any device. Quick to deploy without technical experience and based on a subscription model, 30MHz smart sensing technology gives the end-user flexibility in what to monitor and when, how to scale, as well as full control over how to view and share captured data.

A central dashboard for agriculture analytics

When accessible in one central location, data from Sercom climate control computers and sensory data captured by 30MHz can provide end-users with the granular insights on environment and crop-level microclimate to better respond to changing conditions, reduce energy usage in heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation, and optimise water usage in irrigation.  Users have the option to view data and receive alerts in the 30MHz ZENSIE dashboard, or in Sercom’s SercoVision interface. It is also possible to adapt existing wired sensors, already present at the location, into a wireless version and incorporate data collected into the monitoring system.

Optimising greenhouse growing with real-time insights

30MHz technology has helped customers across cold storage, greenhouse, arable, vertical farming, and processing sectors use up-to-the-minute data on their crops and environments to maximize output, minimize loss and optimise irrigation and energy use. Using a modular approach to sensor monitoring, 30MHz has designed a smart sensing toolkit which scales with the customer’s needs and enables end-users to select the combination of sensors and metrics to fit their objectives. Popular metrics include temperature and humidity, micro-climate, airflow, object counting, light intensity and soil moisture. The company counts agricultural leaders Wageningen University, Proeftuin Zwaagdijk, Royal Brinkman, Rijk Zwaan, Syngenta and Svensson as customers.

Dutch innovation in agriculture

The partnership between Lisse-based Sercom and Dutch-founded 30MHz, which has its headquarters at the Port of Amsterdam, brings together two key areas of Dutch expertise: sustainable, innovative agriculture and accessible high technology. Together, the two companies can bring the power of data-driven agricultural technology to a global customer base.
