I’ve been accepted to exhibit at @MakerFaire Bay Area on May 17 & 18, 2014 http://makerfaire.com/

#20475 – internet of farming arduino-based aquaponics

Will be able to show case a number of new leading edge things that I have been developing.

Here are just a few of them:

Design of a “Radial Flow Filter” for the tower unit system ( will be blogging and doing a Youtube video about it shortly”

Venturi DIY design that will replace air pumps on my systems.

Aquaponic Fog Unit that I have just completed and in testing mode now.

Have fully working Tower unit with totally enabled  IoT features that show case the latest developments in this technology as related to aquaponics.

I reviewed my options on larger relay sets and picked the following ones from Yourduino site.

8 - relay board-2

4-relay board

I went with the Opto-Isolated units as they are much safer when using around water and 120 volt systems.  My plan is to build a 12 outlet controller portable unit. Don’t know what it will look as yet because the plan is still in mind I know I will have 8 relays configured to be in the closed mode and the other 4 relays will be in the open mode.  This I think will give me the most flexibility with all the items I want to control with this unit.
