WATER WAYS ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF ITS NEW CANNABIS IOT PRECISE IRRIGATION AND FERTILIZATION SYSTEM "THE CANNAWAYS"
Water Ways Technologies Inc. has launched Cannaways, an Internet of Things (IOT) controlled irrigation and fertilization system for cannabis cultivators and growers. The system is one of the first in the world that was designed for the specific needs of cannabis growers and cultivators worldwide.
Cannaways' purpose is to increase the yield and consistency for cannabis growers and cultivators while maintaining high quality, as well as reducing energy, water and fertilization costs.
The Cannaways system was recently developed in Israel by the company's research and development staff of engineers using the company's unique know-how gained in the irrigation industry.
The system was successfully tested in one cannabis cultivation site and is market ready.
The system is comprising the following components:
- A hydroponic system of flooding benches to maximize the cannabis plant's nutritional absorption together with full monitoring and control of the plant nutrition during the different growing stages;
- A fertilizing system composed of the following main components: raw fertilizer tanks and dosing pumps;
- Drainage, filtration and water recycling systems;
- An IOT (Internet of Things) control gateway.
An IOT control gateway is an integral component of the system which is comprised of an industrial controller and integrated specially developed software to monitor and control various components of the cultivation project. The system allows to control the whole cultivation process by allowing the user to adjust the following features:
- Irrigation, fertilizing and filtration system;
- Climate system monitoring;
- Structural systems (benches, darkening and thermal screens, curtains, heating, dehumidification, ventilation, fans etc.).
The controller and software are connected and synchronized with a local controller or sensors within the facility. The controller gathers data in a local and remote cloud so the cultivation management staff can use this information to track trends, symptoms and manage correctly their facility.
The controller software can be installed on smart phones, PCs, and local controller touch screens, allowing the growers to decide who is permitted to use the controller, and control it over the Web remotely.
It is intended that the Cannaways system will be sold and marketed in Canada through the company's recently established Canadian subsidiary Heartnut Grove WWT Inc., which acquired the assets Heartnut Grove, an irrigation equipment distributor based in Mount Bydges, Ont..
The company also intends to showcase the technology in the coming months in several cannabis shows around the world. For more information about the system please visit its website.
Ohad Haber, the company's chairman and chief executive officer, commented: "The Cannaways system was developed in recent months with the intention of positioning Water Ways as a key technology provider to cannabis cultivators around the world. Our goal is to help our clients achieve better yields and higher product consistency. As the cultivators around the globe continue to seek new ways to maximize efficiency, we believe that Cannaways will become an integral part of achieving that goal."
