The ICA6000 is an accurate control and measurement system designed and manufactured specifically for high specification cold and controlled atmosphere stores.
The State of the Art Control System takes store atmosphere samples, analyses, monitors and adjusts gas levels on a number of stores all from one machine, installed in one location and can be accessed remotely over the internet or by smart phone or tablet so the user doesn’t need to be on site to observe his store condition. It is a cost effective way to fully automate the control of your produce from a small 2 store farm to a complex of 100 rooms.
THE ICA6000 – HOW IT WORKS
It is an extremely flexible system that is configured to meet the needs of each application and has a capacity from 4 to 56 rooms. The system is independent of any proprietary CA machinery and can be used with many types of carbon dioxide and oxygen control equipment.
The ICA6000 includes gas analyser sensors which are regularly checked for calibration and can be set to automatically correct for drift. The sampling system comprises a high quality pump, vacuum gauge and filter/separator. The PLC controls the room sampling sequence by selecting the appropriate sampling solenoid valves.
Control outputs for room ventilation, nitrogen purge and CO2 scrubbing are time proportional to provide accurate control of the gas atmosphere in each storage room. Control of CO2 addition is also available for specialist applications such as berry storage.
Temperature is measured from up to 6 probes per room with the high accuracy ICA 28 temperature probes. Connection is available to permit the ICA6000 to monitor the settings and operation of Dixell room temperature controllers.
Inputs are also available for Humidity measurement, Ammonia or other refrigeration gas alarm and the measurement of ethylene from 0.2 to 25 ppm.
The operation of the ICA6000 is from a touch screen controller for easy access to readings and setting adjustments. The screen can also be accessed remotely from an online PC or mobile device. The ICA6000 is connected to a standard Ethernet network and has its own IP address for a wired or wireless network and through a broadband internet connection using industry standard IT techniques.
There is additional .NET software available to use on a connected PC computer to provide full screen data displays and tabular and graphical reports which can be stored and exported in common data formats.
Alarm alerts can be sent directly by email from the controller to a mail address of choice.
