9 ph Mini EC Mini Simple, robust, reliable. A single function controller that lets you measure your EC. A single function controller that lets you measure your ph. The ph Mini may be used as a mains-powered monitor or, by adding a solenoid valve or peristaltic pump, it becomes a fully functional dosing system, managing fluctuations in your ph. The controller will add either acid or alkali (to lower or raise the ph). ph fluctuations in your reservoir are not only time consuming to correct, but can have negative effects on your crop performance. This simple ph Mini will monitor your ph levels and add ph adjuster to maintain your desired set-points. Adding a peristaltic pump will allow you to keep your ph adjuster in larger containers on the floor, avoiding issues associated with gravity-fed valves. Highlights ph control by the experts! Autogrow has been managing ph dosing in reservoirs large and small for over 20 years. For over 10 years, growers everywhere have stopped the daily battle with ph levels, giving them more time to spend on their plants. The EC Mini may be used as a mains powered monitor or, by adding two solenoid valves or pumps, it becomes a fully functional dosing system, managing fluctuations in your EC. EC fluctuations in your reservoir are not only time consuming to correct, but can have negative effects on your crop performance. This simple EC Mini will monitor your EC levels and add EC adjuster to maintain your desired set-points. Adding peristaltic pumps will allow you to keep your EC adjuster in larger containers on the floor, avoiding issues associated with gravity-fed valves. Highlights The EC Mini is from a family of monitors and dosers that have been proven over many years. This latest Monitor/Controller has built upon this pedigree of simplicity and innovative features.
