The FARM computer programme
The FARM computer programme is used to communicate with the VIRGO microclimate controllers as well as for analysis and visualization of collected data by using a PC computer. The programme enables current preview of microclimate parameters, remote adjustment of settings, reading of collected data and their visualization in the shape of tables and charts. The programme works under Windows from XP SP3 and newer ones.
The RS-485 interface is used to communicate with a PC computer (a converter is connected to the USB port). A group of controllers can be equipped with an Ethernet module or Wi-Fi by means of which it is possible to connect them to the local network or the Internet- thanks to this solution it is possible to connect all controllers on the farm in the network in an easy and fast way and control them remotely.
