Hortinergy has updated its greenhouse simulation software and introduced improved screen calculations. Recognizing the crucial role of screens in modern greenhouse horticulture, efforts have been made to seamlessly integrate thermal, blackout and shade screens into the software.
This update facilitates the addition of detailed and accurate screens to greenhouse models. Real-time modeling is a key feature, providing users with instant data on the positioning of thermal screens, allowing visualization of their impact on temperature, light and humidity in the greenhouse.
Another feature is the possibility of automatic optimization of thermal screens. Users can choose to optimize screen usage based on factors such as weather forecasts, seasonal changes and specific crop requirements. In addition, detailed reports are available that provide insight into how thermal screens influence greenhouse climate and crop growth. This information allows users to make informed decisions aimed at improving overall revenues.
The improved thermal screen calculations bring tangible benefits, including potential energy savings. Efficient use of thermal screens can lead to lower energy costs by minimizing dependence on heating and cooling systems. In addition, users are given the opportunity to manage the incoming light into the greenhouse by selecting screens adapted to their location and prevailing weather conditions.
