The Tropf-Blumat (Drip-Blumat) is a
sensor that supplies plants with drips of water via thin tubing. It
begins to drip automatically when the soil is dry and stops dripping
when an adequate moisture level is reached. This process requires the
presence of water pressure; this can be produced either by having a
faucet connection or by using an elevated water tank.
Every plant, every container or group of plants requires at least 1
Tropf-Blumat adjusted to the individual needs of the plant. Larger
containers or surfaces require longer or more than one sensor. All
Tropf-Blumats are connected using one supply tube, this allows for
flexibility in the layout and is changeable at any time.
The Tropf-Blumat is the central piece of
the Blumat-System - it regulates moisture levels by acting as a moisture
sensor, valve and dripper all at the same time. A T-branch connector
(8-3-8 mm) as connecting piece and 20 cm drip tubing are required.
