In order to protect your investment and ensure a hassle-free return to service in the next production season, it is important to follow the following storage recommendations.
Temperature and humidity sensor Place the temperature and humidity sensor in a temperate (15 to 25 ° C) and dry place and remove the batteries for winter.
If you want to continue using this sensor in the winter, you can without any problem. It can operate from -40 to 60 ° C.
Multifunction box Leave the current on the multifunction box. The voltage regulator inside the case will give off some heat which will reduce humidity inside the case and allow it to extend its life.
Central controller The same goes for the central controller if it is placed in the greenhouse or in a humid place. If the central controller is stored in a cool, dry place, you can unplug it for the winter.
Tensiometer It is also important to store blood pressure monitors in a cool, dry place for the winter. Please note that tensiometer should never be exposed to freezing if they are filled with water. This could damage them irreversibly.
Opening side Position the switches on the multifunction box in manual mode to prevent any movement of the opening sides during winter. To extend the life of your engines, you can also store them for the winter in a dry place.
