Cyber Ponic – home or industrial automated device for growing plants with ultrasonic aero system and control. Invented by a Ukrainian engineer in 2016, currently undergoing testing.
Why Cyber Ponic Is Highly Potential System for Farming of the Future?
Cyber Ponic generates mist enriched with fertilizers that delivers nutrients directly to the roots.
Only 0.5l of water needed for plants to start growing. It has own condensed water collector system and its growing zone is isolated from the external environment. Water spending is highly depends on plant species.
Cyber Ponic uses LED light with with overall power of 30W/h in the time of lighting (of average 12 hours per each day). Growing module of average uses power of only 7W/h
The first aeroponic system targeted on customers without any experience. Cyber Ponic is extremely simplified for end customer, it uses embedded auto-growing programs and allows user to manage workflow via smartphone. The system monitors, records, and analyses every fault or growing problem and immediately generates a solution.
Silent ultrasonic mist generator instead of noisy high pressure pumps. The system uses modified air humidifier technology driven by controller unit and fitted to use liquid nutrients.
Data collection and self-learning. While other hi-end growing systems collect data only about water properties, Cyber Ponic also collects data about roots growth, dynamics, and illumines the problem.
Cyber Ponic is the first true aeroponic system which full-featured module could be placed on a desk or windowsill, since it's size is not bigger than 40*60cm (15.7 x 23.6 inches)
Smart lighting system
Cyber Ponic can adjust light spectrum for maximum light absorption by plants.
