Full integration of pot spacing robots with the benching system

Dat-A-Spacing makes it possible to trace individual plants throughout your spacing and sorting process. Spacing and sorting orders can be inserted and controlled.

Often a logistics bottleneck in greenhouses when not properly automated, the Dat-A-Spacing module ensures plant data integrity thought the spacing process and deploys the needed patterns to the spacing robot.

A spacing command consists of:

  • collect benches for sorting and/or spacing
  • destination of bench after sorting and/or spacing
  • number of benches that need to be filled, by sort
  • pattern in which the plants will be laid on the bench as well as the number of plants per bench
  • plant life cycle phase after assignment
  • start time
  • Options such irrigation time after spacing
The standard for customisation

Because of the modular structure of Dat-A-Control, growers can implement a software package that’s specifically configured for their need without having to pay for unneeded features.

In addition to a basic Dat-A-Control version, we have developed various optional modules that serve specific production processes in the greenhouse.

The optional Dat-A-Control software modules are:

  • Dat-A-Plant
  • Dat-A-Water
  • Dat-A-Potting
  • Dat-A-Spacing
  • Dat-A-Pick&Place
  • Dat-A-Pocket
  • Dat-A-SMS
  • Dat-A-Planner
When sorting with camera system, Dat-A-Spacing can also include more complex sorting capabilities using the data from the camera system.
Before a system is installed in your greenhouse, extensive customer level testing is performed by our software engineering team so that any possible problems are detected in advance. This shortens the set-up duration of projects in the field considerably.
We’ve designed our software so that it easy to interface with other software solutions the company might use.

The 2D-Shuttle is a unique greenhouse automation solution, which is designed and built by Logiqs. This system is unmatched in its modular design, that allows for a flexible and scalable system.

The 2D-Shuttle is the semi-autonomous vehicle that rides underneath the rolling benches, using the heating pipes as rails, and in doing so, can automate large greenhouse surfaces.

The A-Track transport lines ensure bench movements between rows and connect the growing area to the work area.

Each individual A-Track Transport Line section is powered by just one drive unit, using two speeds: a fast one for normal bench movements and a slow one for precise positioning of the bench on the lifting frame.

When an A-Track transport line is connected with an isle of rolling benches, it’s also fitted with a pneumatic lifting frame for the bench handoff between transport line and 2D-Shuttle.

Throughout its history, Logiqs has developed various solutions for automatic transport of containers using Automatic Transport Carts, for the transport of one or multiple rolling benches simultaneously.

These automated carts can be mounted either on the central concrete path in the middle of your greenhouse or on the side-wall of the greenhouse.

The Overhead and 3D (X/Y) Cranes produced by Logiqs streamline the transport of both empty and full plant containers and have been successfully implemented in countless greenhouses and plant nurseries throughout the world.

Our Overhead Cranes have lightweight designs that don’t create high forces on the greenhouse structure while at the same time being highly durable and reliable.

Our lifts are custom made for the specific size of benches used by the vertical farm as well as if regards to the building height.

The lifts are produced using only the highest grade components, they use four independent electromechanical actuators for maximum stability and in order the evenly distribute forces.

Automated irrigation, on individual bench level, finally made possible by our Automatic Irrigation Booms and Dat-A-Control.

The Automatic Irrigation Booms/gantries from Logiqs are the most versatile all in one irrigation solution available today.

Available with a full software integration using Dat-A-Control, our Automatic Irrigation Booms allow growers to considerably reduce labor costs, improve product quality and conserve both water and feeds.

Why a LOGIQS rolling bench system?

Our long-term relationships with growers help us to fully understand their needs and ambitions and reach the desired automation results at the best possible price point.

We believe in sustainable automation and we don’t automate just for the sake of doing so. Because we only succeed when our customers are also successful in their production activities.

When necessary, long term phased plans can be made where the grower can fully understand how the greenhouse’s logistical system can be upgraded in time, even going from manual systems to a full automation level.
