Description

The TrolMaster Hydro-X CO2 Sensor is a crucial component of advanced environmental control systems, specifically designed for indoor cultivation. This sensor provides accurate and real-time monitoring of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, enabling growers to optimize conditions for photosynthesis and maximize plant growth.

Key Features:

CO2 Monitoring Precision: The Hydro-X CO2 Sensor is engineered for high-precision monitoring of CO2 levels in the grow space. This critical parameter is fundamental for plant photosynthesis, and precise monitoring ensures that plants receive the optimal amount of CO2.
Integration with Hydro-X System: Seamlessly integrated into the TrolMaster Hydro-X environmental control system, the CO2 Sensor contributes to a comprehensive solution for managing multiple environmental parameters. This integration allows for centralized monitoring and control.
Real-Time CO2 Data: The sensor provides real-time data on CO2 concentrations within the grow space. This information is essential for growers to make informed decisions and adjustments to maintain CO2 levels within the optimal range for plant growth.
Customizable CO2 Thresholds: Growers can set customizable thresholds for CO2 concentrations based on the specific requirements of their crops. This customization ensures that the CO2 levels are tailored to different growth stages, providing an ideal environment for plants.
Automated Control Actions: Integrated with the Hydro-X system, the CO2 Sensor can trigger automated control actions. For example, if CO2 levels fall below a predefined threshold, the system can automatically activate CO2 supplementation mechanisms to enhance photosynthesis.
Uniform CO2 Distribution: The sensor helps ensure uniform CO2 distribution within the grow space. This is crucial for preventing localized variations in CO2 levels that could lead to uneven growth among plants.
CO2 Enrichment Strategies: By monitoring CO2 levels, growers can implement CO2 enrichment strategies during specific growth stages to promote vigorous and healthy plant development. This is particularly valuable in enclosed indoor environments.
Compatibility with Different Grow Setups: The CO2 Sensor is designed to be compatible with various indoor grow setups, including grow tents, rooms, and greenhouses. Its adaptability makes it suitable for a range of cultivation environments.
Easy Installation: Installation of the CO2 Sensor is user-friendly. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for proper placement within the grow space to capture representative CO2 measurements.

The optional CO2 Sensor (MBS-S8) measures the CO2 PPM within the growing area. Using the MBS-S8 allows the users to connect and control their supplemental CO2 system using the Hydro-X. *Used in combination with one or more DSC-1 CO2 device modules.

INFORMATION QUESTIONS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Hydroponics?

Hydroponics is the science of growing plants without soil. The plants thrive on the nutrient-water solution alone. The growing medium merely acts as a support for the plants and their root systems while the solution passes freely. The growing medium, if any, is totally inert.

What types of plants grow best hydroponically?

Anything can be grown hydroponically, but some plants prove to be more space efficient. Some plants we suggest are tomatoes, sweet peppers, hot chilies, lettuce, spinach, squash, cucumbers, broccoli, beans, snow peas, herbs and flowers of all types.

Can you REALLY get better yields/quicker growth?

Absolutely. The plants, when receiving everything they need, tend to be healthier, faster growing and generally more productive. You can expect 30% faster growth with many crops.

What are the watering cycle timelines hydroponic systems?

Once the reservoir is filled with nutrients, it is time to put your hydro system to work! The ease of hydroponics is automation – automation is achieved by putting the pump on a timer according to your watering needs. The watering cycle depends on growth stage, growing medium and hydroponic system. In an ebb and flow or drip system with rockwool as the medium, seedlings, clones and plants in the early vegetative stage require watering only once a day for 15-30 minutes (twice a day for higher temps). Mature, flowering and fruiting plants require a heavier feed and can be fed once a day for 30 minutes (twice a day for higher temps). Typically soiless mixes and coco fiber can be watered for about 15 minutes twice a day, and can be adjusted for heavier feeding during the flowering and fruiting stage or higher temps. ViaStone, Hydroton, Grow Rocks, and Silicate mediums need to be watered more frequently – a constant drip for drip systems, and about 15-30 minutes every 3 hours for ebb and flow systems and can be adjusted for heavier feeding during the flowering and fruiting stage or higher temps. Aeroponic systems require frequent watering cycles; 30-60 seconds every few minutes or a constant spray.

What do I need to test pH? How do I test pH?

pH has a range from 0 (acidic) – 14 (alkaline), with 7 being neutral. A proper hydroponic pH range is between 5.5 to 6.2 for most hydroponic crops. For specific crop pH, check out our Plant Guide. pH must remain within the proper range for good plant health, disease resistance, and proper nutrient uptake. pH is maintained by adding pH Up and pH Down to the nutrient solution. For more information, see the Testssection of our site.

How will the flavor compare to my outdoor grown, organic produce?

The taste may be even better! This is simply due to the fact that the hydroponically grown plants are getting everything they need, when they need it. Don’t be fooled by “hot house” produce grown commercially. The grower’s primary concern is shipability and storage, not flavor. When you grow your own vegetables at home, you can expect nothing less than excellent results. Plus, hydroponically grown produce has the added benefit of a longer shelf life.
