The Atlas 8 is a digital CO2 monitor and controller. Besides having traditional injection capabilities, it also features fuzzy logic programming!
Atlas 8: Once the CO2 level has reached your desired set point, it will disable the CO2 device. It features a photocell to ensure daytime only dosing of CO2 via a generator or regulator. This controller comes with a 15 remote sensor that houses the photocell and CO2 sniffer.
Fuzzy logic applies constant calculations to the output controlling your CO2 regulator to ensure that you do not undershoot or over shoot your predetermined set point.
Product Usage Diagram:
Caution: Sulphur vaporization can damage your controller! To protect your controller, it is important to disconnect and cover the Atlas 8 by wrapping with a plastic bag OR remove the controller from the grow area while using sulphur vaporizers in your grow room.
Titan Controls Atlas 8: Digital CO2 Controller w/ Fuzzy Logic Questions & Answers
Should I run my CO2 at night?
No, you should not. Plants photosynthesize CO2 only during the daylight hours. At night, the plants expire CO2 and have no use for CO2. Save yourself some money and only dose CO2 during daylight hours when it does the most good for the plants.
Why do gardeners enrich their growing space with CO2?
CO2 is proven to speed up a plants growth rate, improve overall health and increase a plants yield. There are also many other benefits to plants, among them greater resistance to temperature extremes and other forms of stress, better growth at low light intensities, improved root/top ratios and less injury from air pollutants.
What methods can I use to enrich CO2 in my indoor garden or greenhouse?
The two most common methods are using a CO2 generator/burner or bottled CO2. The most common generator/burner uses LP (liquid propane) gas from a tank or a NG (natural gas) conversion kit that allows you to hook up your generator/burner to the natural gas line in your house. The other option is to purchase bottled CO2 from a local supplier in your area and control its release into your garden area using a Titan Controls CO2 controller (Atlas 1) or short cycle repeat cycle timer with photocell. It should be noted that there is no advantage to increasing CO2 levels beyond 2000 PPM for most greenhouse plants. The optimum level of CO2 for plant growth is generally accepted at 1200 - 1600 PPM.
