Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR MONITORING GROWTH CONDITIONS OF PLANTS
(FR) SYSTÈME PERMETTANT DE SURVEILLER LES CONDITIONS DE CROISSANCE DE PLANTES
Abstract
(EN) A system (110) for monitoring growth conditions of a plurality of plant containers (112) is disclosed. The system (110) has a transport system (118) for transporting the plant containers (112). Each plant container (112) comprises at least one growing medium (114) and preferably at least one plant specimen (116). The system (110) further comprises at least one measurement position (130) having at least one contactless capacitive humidity sensor (132). The system (110) is adapted to successively transport the plant containers (112) to and from the measurement position (130). The system (110) is further adapted to measure the humidity of the growing medium (114) of the plant containers (112) in the measurement position (130) by using the contactless capacitive humidity sensor (132).
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système (110) qui permet de surveiller les conditions de croissance d'une pluralité de récipients de culture (112). Ledit système (110) comprend un système de transport (118) destiné à transporter les récipients de culture (112). Chaque récipient de culture (112) contient au moins un milieu de croissance (114) et, de préférence, au moins une plante (116). Le système (110) comporte en outre au moins une position de mesure (130) équipée d'au moins un capteur d'humidité capacitif sans contact (132). Ledit système (110) est apte à transporter successivement les récipients de culture (112) vers et depuis la position de mesure (130). Le système (110) est également apte à mesurer l'humidité du milieu de croissance (114) des récipients de culture (112) dans la position de mesure (130) à l'aide du capteur d'humidité capacitif sans contact (132).
