The Greenspec GSC computer
You need for the Greenspec software a stable, powerful computer. Greenspec provides for this several types of industrial computers. They are called Greenspec GSC computer. The best choice depends on your greenhouse size and the place you want to use for the system. The system runs under Windows 10 since 2019, with a limited software.
The computer has a special optical connection unit in the housing, that is different from the optical connectors on the AFP electronic units..
We install a watchdog for automatic restart after power problems or other system failure . If needed because of power failure, or because of a blocked system the watchdog will automatically restart the computer.
The different types of the GSC computer
Use a watertight version with touchscreen to set up your computer within the greenhouse. Of course this is not a complete protection against water entering the computer. Greenspec is developing a new small version for small installations, watch this site for updates.
If you have a system running under older versions of Windows, ask your installer for an update. This will make your system more reliable. Your Greenspec software license stays valid, in some cases you only have to buy a hard drive with the updated Windows, in some case you have to replace the computer.
