Switch from thermostats and save money. Research shows that using a simple, centralized control reduces energy consumption. The MiniStep is an easy-to-use 4-stage control. It offers more energy savings than thermostats because it uses a single temperature sensor. This prevents heating and cooling equipment from operating at the same time.
Imagine a controller that offers simple, flexible climate management and excellent results. With the STEP Up you’ll see improved performance and increased profits. Like traditional staged controls, it’s simple to use, and we’ve added a brighter LCD screen and an upgraded user interface, both designed to improve your experience.
This advanced integrated controller designed to offer flexibility, functionality and a friendly user interface. That's why it's our number one selling control. And it bears the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) mark, your assurance of regulatory approval and saftey.
Flexible and powerful, this multi-zone control gives you the ability to divide its 24 outputs any way you’d like between one and eight zones, and you can add sixteen additional outputs with the complementary Satellite unit. This is the perfect control for greenhouses with more equipment than will fit on an EnviroSTEP control or for growers with multiple zones.
Make your Seed sphere more powerful than ever. Seed Sphere expands Seed's capabilities and gives you a better way to see your growing world.
The key to Seed's adaptability is Seed I/O. Custom designed inputs and outputs to meet your needs and your budget. Modular in design, Seed I/O has the msucle to support the powerful Seed control.
