The WUR placed a pre-order as early as January this year, making it the first end customer with interest in the new alarm device for critical technical processes.

The Octalarm-Touch is linked to the various climate computers on the site, including for monitoring the technical processes in the 'Greenhouse2030: Sustainable cultivation with a future'.

In the 'Greenhouse2030', the Wageningen University & Research Business Unit Greenhouse Horticulture combines new techniques in the field of heating, lighting, water, nutrients and integrated cultivation and fighting pests and diseases with natural enemies. ‘More and more often, IT is becoming an important part of our work’, says Ben Kaashoek. ‘With the replacement of the old Octalarm T8 for the new Octalarm-Touch, alerting is also ready for the future; just like the studies in ‘Greenhouse2030’’.
