MCC-1 - Multi-function Micro Climate Controller

  • $336.00

The Micro Climate Controller MCC-1 is designed to perform all the major atmospheric and timed functions required in an automated growth environment including temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide enrichment, lighting and irrigation control. The controller incorporates an external coil cooling thermostat, a dehumidifying humidistat, a 24-hour clock timer, a photo sensor and a repeat cycle timer. Heating and humidifying control is provided by triggers for remote high-amperage relays which enable synchronized equipment management. Automatic override and defeat systems coordinate controls to consider all possible variables. The MCC-1 is enclosed in a black anodized, brush finish aluminum housing. An attractive screen-printed front panel with function indicator lights makes system monitoring and adjustment quick and easy. All connections are standard 3-prong grounded plugs and receptacles. No hard wiring is required for basic operations. Low and high voltage relays are available to operate auxiliary equipment. Every aspect of the growing environment may be addressed by the MCC-1. Operates on 110V AC with 15A switching capacity.

The MCC-1 was designed to be used independently or in conjunction with Green Air Products function relays. The MCC-1 will serve independently for systems and equipment requiring 110V AC of 15A or less. Plug power cord into standard wall outlet and locate controller where good air circulation represents plant zone conditions. Plug exhaust fan into exhaust outlet. Set thermostat and humidistat dials to maximum desired values. Fan will operate when conditions exceed those set points. Function indicator lights will display the condition and outlet status. CO2 equipment can be operated from the CDDS-1 trigger when using the CDMC-2 infrared monitor controller. This outlet provides an exhaust synchronized override feature to delay enrichment during ventilation periods. When timed control is desired plug CO2 equipment into CO2 outlet and set timer mode toggle switch accordingly. Set the sequence timer duration dial for minutes of "on" time and frequency dial for the time between "on" functions.

Exhaust demand will override CO2 production and timer will reset to cycle immediately following ventilation. CO2 outlet is defeated by a built-in photo sensor to operate only when light is present. If not being used for CO2 enrichment the sequence timer can be used for a variety of other timing duties. Switch the mode toggle to "Cycle Timer" to bypass the exhaust and photoperiod defeat circuits. Timer "on" times as short as 5 sec. can be achieved to operate irrigation pumps or solenoids for all kinds of hydroponic and automatic watering systems. Plug thermostatically controlled heater into HR-1 relay trigger outlet. Exhaust operations will override heating trigger to defeat heaters. Use the HF-1 relay outlet for humidifiers to provide a comfort zone between humidifying and dehumidifying. The 24 hour clock timer is useful for all daily oriented timing operations. The 96 independent 15 minute trippers allow any combination of on/off functions repeated each 24 hours. Lighting, fans, pumps and watering are only a few of the tasks this timer can perform. If your combined amperage draw exceeds 15A power handling capacity of the controller optional high amperage function relays can be used to provide service to large systems.
