Horticultural Control Systems
A modern glasshouse cannot compete in today’s tough markets, without being very efficient in terms of maximising yield and minimising energy consumption. This can only be realistically achieved by using a modern computer control system. Bridge can offer a wide range of system options, to match all your climate, energy and irrigation control requirements. We will help you to design a computer installation, to ensure that all your installed nursery equipment is compatible and effectively integrated.
There are two main types of system that Bridge can offer; the Horticultural Managements System (HMS) from various manufacturers and the Bridge Sirius-GC controller
Horticultural Management System (HMS)
This is ultimate in climate, energy and water management system. These systems use a clear PC based display, showing a map of the nursery, with the ability to view & edit graphs & set points etc. They have huge flexibility due to the modular nature of the hardware & software, plus the ability to proactively control all operations. more….

Bridge Irrigation systems are carefully designed to give optimum irrigation performance. In order to achieve this, some level of automatic control is required for the irrigation system. This control can either come from a main horticultural management system, or from a standalone irrigation controller. Bridge can offer a range of Galcon products to suit the control requirements of any nursery or farm establishment. These Galcon products range from the simple AC24 Irrigation Controller for small nurseries, to the Galileo controller which has the ability to control climate as well as irrigation in glasshouses and farms etc.
With the use of Remote Terminal Units (RTU) it is simple to control vast open field irrigation networks from one central controller. Find out more…
