Manipulating Light with EVA3
EVA3 features 11 individual wavelength bands: 430nm, 450nm, 630nm, 660nm, 385nm UVA, 410nm violet, 520nm green, 730nm deep red, 850nm infrared, fluorescent UVB and a white light that serves as a filler that covers all other wavelength bands. The intensity of each wavelength band can be set individually in the range of 0% to 100%.
Each EVA3 is equipped with two 5MP digital cameras providing 10MP coverage of the area served by the unit (120cm X 120cm, 4' X 4'). The operation of the cameras is automatic - as part of the grow plan the cultivators predefines a schedule for capturing images at specific times of the day, and at that time all the cameras in the grow room will capture a stills image.
Growing light recipes
Every EVA3 comes preloaded with a library of several sets of palettes (recipes), enabling the grower to enjoy the power of EVA3 from day one. Such libraries typically include minimum 5-6 recipes, covering the light needs of the crop from early vegetation and through the end of the flowering phase. By adhering to light recipes as well as individually adjusting them growers can increase their yield, improve their crop's quality, and lower the energy consumption (thus the cost) of their production.
The Workforce' Companion
An important goal in the design of EVA3 was for the system to integrate
into that daily workflow in a streamlined, worker-friendly manner. So while the software powering EVA3 is sophisticated and feature-rich, the day-to-day operations are covered by a single easy to use dashboard. Through the intuitive dashboard, all that the cultivator needs to do is select the current grow plan and turn the system on. From that point on, EVA3 will automatically turn the lights on or off according to the relevant lighting cycle and using the
palette associated with the grow plan.
The Network Platform
A key to EVA3's network architecture is that the entire communication with the lamp is done wirelessly, without having to install any special wiring or other infrastructure. Once plugged to electricity EVA3 announces itself as a WiFi access point, and any device with WiFi connectivity - mobile phone, laptop computer, tablet - can connect to the lamp in an encrypted, password protected connection, through a regular web browser. Optional BluetoothTM connection available as well.
