Data measurement for Agriculture & Indoor Farming

We provide various measurement solutions for monitoring agriculture in general, particularly indoor farming. We use specialised data loggers for collecting and storing data related to farming. The most common parameters that require regular monitoring are:

  1. Temperaturemultichannel-data-recorders-for-agriculture
  2. Humidity of air
  3. Moisture content
  4. Soil moisture
  5. Light
  6. Carbon Dioxide
  7. Carbon monoxide
  8. The rate of air flow in case of indoor farming
  9. The height of the plant to measure the growth from time to time.

We use numerous sensors to collect these data. Each of the above parameters will need a different type of sensor. All these sensors are connected to a local centralised data logger. Alternatively, we can connect these sensors to an IOT platform. This will be centralised in a cloud platform.

By combining all these data, a specialist can study the growth of the plants in relation to all these parameters. Advanced data analytics can be down if the farm size is big. This will provide more insights into various aspects of the farm to increase efficiency in operation, time etc.

We also have data loggers which can take up to 400 input signals. This will be good enough for a small to medium-sized farm.

We are providing our services across all Middle East countries covering the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait.

Also, we are supplying these systems in African countries covering Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Uganda and Rwanda.

Dehumidifier for Egg Storage

Storage of eggs is an important part in a hatchery before the incubation period. The situation is very critical and the egg storage needs to be done very carefully to minimize the damage in eggs. Generally the storage time period for the eggs in a hatchery is about 0-20 days but can vary according to the requirement and place.

Improper storage of the eggs can hamper the hatchability of the eggs as well as the chick quality. Proper eggs storage helps to stop the incubation of eggs before the process is initiated. Without the proper storage environment the mortality of the egg embryo is very high. Hence the most important factors to be considered during storage are temperature and humidity.

Industrial Resistors

motor-starting-vackergroup-minWe supply various types of high-quality industrial power resistors in UAE and the global market.

A power resistor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that resists or limits the flow of electric current in a circuit. Bridge cranes, locomotives, lift trucks, elevators, conveyors, battery lines, power supplies, industrial controls, arc and spot welders, AC variable frequency drives and DC drives, dynamic braking, harmonic filtering, current sensing, neutral grounding, load banks, and mining applications are some typical industrial applications of power resistors.

Dynamic Braking Resistorsbraking-resistor-min

The property of resistors to dissipate heat can be used to slow down a mechanical system. This technique is called dynamic braking and such a resistor is called a dynamic braking resistor. The point of a dynamic braking resistor is to slow down or to quickly stop a motor by dissipating the excess voltage as heat. Thus, it ensures proper motor operation, allowing heavy loads to stop quickly and protects the drive from damage. The motor of a decelerating load acts as a generator, converting the kinetic energy of the load into electrical energy. The dynamic braking resistors in a dynamic braking circuit slows the load by transforming this electrical energy into heat energy.


  1. Speedy braking of DC and AC motors.
  2. Lower abrasion of friction braking components.
  3. Keep motor voltages within secure levels.
  4. No fear of a runaway due to overheated friction brakes in some motors.
  5. Reduce wasted time during braking.
  6. Increase life and service reliability
  7. Absorb thermal expansions and contractions.

Starting Resistorsbraking-resistor-vackergroup-min

The DC resistance of a motor armature is very low. When DC voltage is first applied, heavy current flows which will lead to the armature windings getting overheated and burnt. To avoid that, the starting current is limited by using a starting resistor. That is achieved by using a starter to start the DC motor. The idea of a DC motor starter is adding external resistance in series with the armature windings to reduce initial current. Hence, the DC motor safeguards the motor’s circuitry by lowering the starting current through the resistance. 3 point starter, 4 point starter, no-load release coil starter, thyristor controller starter etc. are several types of dc motor starters.

Starting resistors are deployed to start large asynchronous machines with slip ring rotors. The starting resistor in the rotor circuit is completely switched on first and then switched off again in phases until the full motor power is available. The starting resistor limits the starting current of the motor, thereby the motor gains momentum.

Load Resistance Units

Load resistors are connected at the output side of the circuit. A heavy load will draw more current while a light load will draw less current. A load less circuit will draw minimal current. The main purpose of applying these resistors is to increase or decrease the power at the output as per the requirements. Load resistors are used to test transformers, batteries, generators, chargers, UPS devices, inverters or emergency power generators. High load resistance is favored mostly, as it ensues maximum voltage transfer.

Wirewound Resistorsbraking-resistor-in-vfd-panel-min

In a wire wound resistor, a wire with a high resistivity is wrapped around an insulating core to provide the resistance. Carbon resistors may be small and cheap, but it’s wise to use wire wound resistors instead of them.

  1. They can be used in higher power circuits.
  2. They are not that sensitive to noise.
  3. They are thermally stable.

Our resistors are removing harmful electrical signals and offering a stable power grid. Our power resistors are providing overvoltage protection in a variety of industrial applications in UAE.

How to reduce mould and fungus?

Mould (mold in US English) and Fungus are formed in moist environments in home, office, apartments, villas, basements etc. This causes serious health concerns especially breathing ailments. You might have seen such mold formation on wet walls at your home. This is the worst case scenario. Even if it is not visible to this extent, you have to be aware that mold formation is happening within your house if you have a high humidity atmosphere.

Mold & Fungus formation in humid cities

fungus-on-leather-shoesMold formation happens in high humidity cities including Dubai, Abudhabi, Jeddah, Dammam, Doha, Muscat etc. Being situated on the seaside, these cities have a high humidity level in the environment. When the room is at a low temperature, it attracts humidity from outside. Thus after opening a door or window, more humidity is trapped inside your house or apartment. Some of the visible signs of mold formation are listed below:

  1. White fungus on leather shoes.
  2. Similar fungus formation on leather jackets, leather bags etc.
  3. We can see the white fungus on cloth jackets, coats etc.
  4. In the case of extreme humidity, you will see mold formation on the walls also.

Even if the environment humidity is low, you might have seen white mould on the outer walls of bathrooms. This also is a high health hazard. This happens because water seeps through the walls of the bathroom. The recommended humidity level in a living environment is 65-70% RH maximum. The higher the humidity level, fungus formation will be worse.


How to reduce mould formation and fungus inside house, apartment, office?

high-humidity-problemIn order to prevent and reduce such instances, you need to reduce the moisture content from the environment.This is achieved by using dehumidifiers. A dehumidifier processes the atmospheric air and extracts water from the air. This water is then drained out through a drain hose or by manually training the water tray. Please see more on our home and office dehumidifiers.

If you have a swimming pool in your house or villa, the moisture content from the pool will enter your rooms. Indoor swimming pools generate a huge amount of moisture. In such cases, you may also consider using a swimming pool dehumidifier.

How to select a dehumidifier for home?humidity-problems-vacker

The dehumidifier has a capacity of dehumidification. This depends on your room size, present humidity and present temperature. You need not worry about these aspects and we have three standard sizes of dehumidifiers viz. small, medium and big. We will help you select a suitable model based on your room size. However, if you want to know more about selecting a model for huge rooms, you can have a look at our humidity capacity calculation software.

Humidity requirement as per DHA (Dubai Health Authority) for Pharmaceutical Storage

Humidity requirement as per DHAVacker UAE provides different effective solutions to the problems related to humidity monitoring and control. As we all know humidity is a factor that can seriously affect the quality of different items during their storage as well as their transport. Hence the humidifiers and dehumidifiers supplied by our company Vacker UAE help to maintain the right level of humidity as per the specifications issued by DHA. Our services can be found in different parts of the UAE such as Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai, Ajman, Sharjah, etc.

Humidity specification by DHA for Pharmacies

The extended form of DHA is Dubai Health Authority. It is an organization run by the Dubai Government to improve the overall health system of Dubai.

The DHA specifies that humidity in pharmacies has to be below 60%. Generally, all individual medicine manufacturers specify that their products be maintained below a humidity level of 60 or 65%. Hence DHA’s regulation is in line with the same. The pharmacy may keep a hygrometer to see the humidity reading.

dehumidifier in pharmaciesCause of high Humidity inside a pharmacy

Humidity is the amount of moisture in the air. Generally, the humidity of the air is measured in RH which is the short form of relative humidity. Humidity can affect the quality of different products during the storage and transit of the product. Especially, the pharmaceutical products are highly sensitive to humidity. Hence pharmaceutical industries need to have a firm control over the level of humidity during the storage and transit of medicines and vaccines. This is the very reason Dubai Health Authority has set a certain standard for the storage and transit of the pharmaceutical products.

Humidity for Storage of Pharmaceutical Products

Humidity requirement as per DHADubai Health Authority has established parameters for the storage of the pharmaceutical products. And for those products where DHA feels humidity can deter the quality of the product they imply instruction such as “The product should be protected from humidity”. The products having such instruction should be stored in containers which are humidity resistant. They should not be kept in a location where the humidity exceeds 60% RH. Temperature and humidity mapping should be done across the storage area and it should show uniformity across the storage area. An unauthorized person should not be allowed in the storage room as it may alter the environmental condition of the storage area.

All these criteria and other criteria for the storage of the pharmaceutical products can be found under Good Pharmaceutical storage and distribution practices. The DHA will approve the storage room of any pharmaceutical industry only if they have maintained these criteria in their storage room. Good Pharmaceutical storage and distribution practice has helped to maintain the high standard in pharmaceutical products as well as an overall health system.

How to reduce the humidity of pharmacy to 60% to meet DHA requirement?

dehumidifier to reduce humidtyGenerally, in Dubai, the humidity is high especially in summer. As the pharmacy is cooler than the outside temperature, the humidity is attracted into the pharmacy. Hence the humidity inside the pharmacy may go up to 70 to 80%.

In order to reduce the humidity levels, you can use a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier is a device to reduce the humidity of air inside a room. The moisture in the air is absorbed and converted into water. This helps to maintain the humidity below 60% as specified by DHA. There are different models of a dehumidifier with varying capacity. In order to decide the right dehumidifier please give us the dimension of your pharmacy. Depending on the size of the pharmacy, different models will be required. We will assist you to select the right capacity of the dehumidifier.
