Upgrading the unit with a newer version of the system’s circulation pump
The newer version of the system’s circulation pump can be installed to units that contain the previous pump. Installing the new circulation pump ensures peak performance of circulating temperature control throughout the system’s root chambers. This step is not needed for system installation but it is highly recommended.
The Bifarm Raised Bed includes two root chambers that consist of 4 tubs where insulation is installed between the outer tub and the inner tub. The root chambers are housed and supported by a frame that unfolds in place. This video shows how to set up each Raised Bed tub. Starting from the frame, to tubs insulation and tubs and nozzle structure placement.
The grow bag is a lint free filter bag that is placed in the root chambers of the Bifarm Raised Bed. It keeps particles that can be released from plants during the growth cycle from entering the circulation system of the AeroXPS controlling unit. This video shows how to install and attach the grow bag in the root chambers and nozzle placement on nozzle structure.
The Bifarm Raised Bed recirculates nutrients from the root chambers to the AeroXPS controlling unit. This video describes how to install the connection on the bottom of the tubs that allows nutrient recirculation as well as nutrient delivery to the root chamber.
The Bifarm Raised Bed recirculates nutrients from the root chambers to the AeroXPS controlling unit. This video describes how to install the AeroXPS connections needed for nutrient recirculation as well as nutrient delivery to the root chamber.
The Nutrient Intake and Drain box connects with the AeroXPS controlling unit to allow for remote control of intaking and draining nutrients and water into the Raised Bed system reservoir. This video will demonstrate how to connect and install the nutrient Intake and Drain box.
The Bifarm Raised Bed system automatically controls most auxiliary equipment, such as lights, through the Power Switches connected to the AeroXPS controlling unit. This video demonstrates how to connect auxiliary equipment and the Power Switch with the Bifarm External Chiller.
Root Chamber, Climate Sensor, and Power Supply Connection
The Bifarm Raised Bed comes with several sensors that monitor environment conditions and root chamber conditions and reports these conditions to the GrowOS App. This video describes how to connect the root chamber temperature sensors, the climate temperature and humidity sensor, and the power supply adapter.
The Bifarm Raised Bed consists of a recirculation system within the AeroXPS controlling unit and External Chiller. The connection between these components must be insulated to help maintain root chamber temperature to the preset levels in the GrowOS App. This video describes how to insulate outside circulation tubes on the system.
The grow space in the GrowOS Pro App organizes your units in your facility. Multiple grow spaces can be created to accommodate units that may be in different rooms or that will be running different grow plans and schedules. The grow space will run the same grow plan for every unit assigned to that space automatically. This video will show you how to create a space and how to add units to a space.
The grow space in the GrowOS Pro App provides an overview of climate conditions in that space, room, or area. In this screen you will be able to view every unit assigned to the space, a brief description of unit conditions, and actions you can perform to all units simultaneously.
In this video we’ll show you how to view and set up the alerts and notifications section of the GrowOS Pro app. These notifications will display when the system detects your environment and nutrients have fallen out of your programmed range.
The unit screen shows more detailed information on a specific unit’s conditions such as nutrient temperature, water level, and auxiliary controls. This video will go over the different actions you can take and describe the information being displayed on this screen.
Each unit can be individually configured for several setting types. This video will show you where to find settings for WiFi, auxiliary, sensor calibration, software updates, nutrients, and diagnostics.
The facility page in the GrowOS Pro App is the home screen where all your different operation locations are displayed. This page can be used to organize and separate your units and grow spaces according to their facility. For example, if you have multiple locations or buildings used for your grow operations you can separate them on the facility page. This video will show you how to send the access of your facility to people, view your server connection, and your grow plan library.
How to Calibrate the pH and EC Sensor in Your Bifarm System
Bifarm Future Farm® systems come with pH and EC sensors that will need to be calibrated prior to use. This video will show you how to calibrate your sensors with calibration liquid and with the GrowOS Pro App.
Grow Plans in the GrowOS Pro app are where you pre-program your grow settings. Here, you will be able to configure your environment settings from lighting schedule, misting time, and nutrient conditions. The Grow Plan will automatically monitor and manage grow conditions throughout the duration of the plan.
