Greenhouse solutions

Today, you can buy perfectly ripe bananas thousands of miles from where they grew. Shipping time is moving from four to eight weeks, which results in less spoilage. The secret is a well-managed atmosphere where the temperature is kept low and COand ethylene are removed as they are produced by the fruits, vegetables, or legumes. CO2 is managed to remain between 0-19%, and for that, a solid and reliable sensor is needed.

Sensor challenge

Shipping containers travel the world: from hot and humid places over salty oceans to the colder northern regions. Most of them travel on deck, each one connected to power and monitoring, each one with its own control system.
