BDX BatchMatic Fertigation Systems are batch-type nutrient mixing systems for multi-zone greenhouse irrigation and hydroponics facilities. Automatically mix recipes and correct pH according to your schedule, then send the batches to the programmed zones. Use the system to directly feed up to 14 zones of plants or send recipes to holding tanks.
Available with either 5, 10 or 12 chemical pumps. Each pump can be configured for EC nutrient dosing, pH up, pH down, or ORP as required.
Precision sensors and rugged pumps offer reliable and accurate control. Built with FDA compliant tubing, the dosing pumps inject chemicals quickly and precisely.
Built on over a decade of proven technology and components with new, enhanced capabilities to meet the growing demand for highly reliable autonomous dosing applications. Designed to meet the needs of typical multi-room indoor growing facilities and mid-sized greenhouses without being over priced or over-complicated. They're also made in the USA!
BDX System Includes:
Not Included (Customer Supplied)
These pre-assembled panels come ready to dose! Just mount, plug in power and plumb the water connections! Customer must supply a mixing tank between 55 - 350 gallon capacity and install the level sensors in the tank. Batch mixing tanks are sold separately. Need help sourcing a tank?

Exploring The BDX Display
The controller's large built-in color touch screen display provides an easy to use interface for monitoring the sensor readings and configuring the dosing settings. Display includes features such as:
Batch Dosing Advantages
Batch dosing is a simple method for pre-mixing a batch of nutrient water then feeding it to crop zones or holding tanks once the mixture is complete. Most hydroponic nutrients have instructions for feeding in ml/gal which is what the BDX BatchMatic™ system uses for creating a recipe. Setting up recipes is as simple as entering the information from the manufacturer's feeding schedule making the system straight forward to setup and understand.
Batch dosing is typically considered the safest approach to fertigation as it allows all parameters to be checked prior to sending the mixture to plants. Any critical problems, such as chemical outages, equipment faults, etc. can be detected before any damage is done to crops.
BDX BatchMatic systems have a variety of safety functions and alarm capabilities including:
Stainless steel probe, 1/4" diamter x 3" with 3ft lead. Made in USA
High quality pH sensor probe. Made in USA.
Conductivity (EC) Probe
High quality electrical conductivity sensor probe. Made in USA.
Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) Probe
High quality ORP (Redox) sensor probe. Made in USA
Sensors Require Continunous Contact
BDX systems require the sensors to be continuously in contact with the water in order to properly manage the dosing pumps. Probe can be located in the reservoir tank, or may be installed inline with a continuously recirculating water flow.
pH & ORP probes must remain wet to avoid damage. Do not allow probe tips to dry!
Optional Add Ons:
Redundant Sensor Option
Precision, rugged sensor probes are made in USA. Available with redundant sensors for enhanced protection from sensor failure. Automatically shut-down the system when error between sensors exceeds allowed limits and trigger alarms.
Valve Expansion Panel
Each BDX system can accept one VXP8 valve panel to expand the system to up to 14 zones. Eight (8) valve expansion panel allows up to 13/14 zones to be managed by a single BDX dosing system. Easy connection to base system with manifold connection and wall mounted panel Learn More here!
Vertical Batch Tank
Compact footprint with heavy-duty tank stand, the VBT series tank system is available in 55, 100 and 350 gallon capacities as a mixing vessel option for the BDX system. Order a tank with your system or supply your own.
Input Trigger Module
Input trigger module is equipped with eight (8) inputs to expand the two (2) internal BDX machine's trigger inputs to 10 total inputs. Inputs can be used with low level sensors to trigger batches to down-line holding tanks, monitor for chemical outages, or for external machine stops.
