Greenbox Automation

 

The CB Greenbox, developed in the Netherlands provides a fully functional control package for small-medium weirs, particularly for use in remote areas. The CB Greenbox encloses Solar panels, motors, batteries and communication, all operating independently from mains power or telecoms. The unit senses water levels upstream and downstream, reacting accordingly and communicating data to a web-portal. The Greenbox is an ideal alternative to a more costly control system, as it requires very little power and space, being not much larger than a shoebox!

 

For more information on the CB Greenbox, please see Product Sheet.
