WHAT is OpIRIS?
OpIRIS gives the answer to the question: “how often and how much to irrigate”. Using the latest Technology, it consists of a User Friendly Web Program, a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) and a set of sensors. It is a low cost autonomous system dealing with water, fertilizers and energy reduction in Hydroponic Greenhouses and Trees Orchards.
WHO IS THE POTENTIAL USER OF OpIRIS?
Any Greenhouse or Orchard operator, who needs to reduce water and fertilizers consumption, save energy and increase quality and productivity.
WHO DESIGNED OpIRIS?
A fusion of Scientists from European Research Centers and a team of Machine to Machine (M2M) Communications Specialists with a deep Knowledge of Industrial Automation, all striving for excellence, powered by FP7 European Program.

WHAT OpIRIS CONSISTS OF?
OpIRIS consists of a Web based program, that communicates via GPRS with a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) and state of the art sensors, installed in your Greenhouse or Orchard.
A special command module can also be installed, activating pumps and valves, if desirable.
HOW CAN I ACCESS my OpIRIS?
From anywhere in the world, by all today’s Internet means. Any Personal Computer, Tablet or Smart Phone can be used. No additional program is required. The only thing you need is a user name, a password and an Internet Connection.
HOW WE MAKE IT HAPPEN?
Sensors send data every few minutes, 365 days a year to OpIRIS web server via GSM. Special Algorithms and Equations are continuously analyzing the transmitted data. A precise Irrigation schedule is generated, depending on the micro climate, Crop’s type, Crop’s age and substrate or soil type. Early Warning flags are generated also. An OpIRIS specialist is always on duty to help you.
WHAT KIND OF SENSORS IS NEEDED?
Depending of Crop’s type, sensors might measure substrate humidity, up to six depths Soil Humidity, Solar Radiation, Air Temperature, Air Humidity, Irrigation and Drainage Volumes, as well as Tree Trunk Diameter. We will provide you with a communication unit with a complete set of sensors, according to your needs. Hardware will be installed by OpIRIS technical team within a few hours.
OpIRIS is future proof
We are using the latest today’s technologies. As Science progresses, we have the capacity and will to follow from a close distance.
