The quantity of water is user-defined.
Depending on the delivery method and installed hardware (pump), the station can optionally be equipped with a balance to check the watering is correct.
The same type of station can be used to deliver nutrient and/or treatments.
Depending on the number of treatments and on the needed throughput, a single station can deliver different treatment or several stations can deliver the same treatments.
A typical Watering station is composed of:
-A stopper in the transfer to manage pallets
-A vertical mechanism to handle the pallet
-A RFID reader to identify the plants
-At least an intermediate tank to deliver water and/or treatment
-One or more pumps
-One or more gauges or sensors to detect that the liquid is present
-One or more retractable irrigation tubes that can be manually or automatically set
-Manual sprinklers to set irrigation strength
-A balance with proper accuracy and operating range
