Objectives: To improve the quality of the product, an automatic control of temperature, humidity and irrigation was designed for a greenhouse. Methods/Analysis: This paper describes the sensors, actuators, controllers, control algorithms and software that make it possible to know and maintain within an optimal range environmental variables of temperature and humidity inside the room fruiting; as well as substrate moisture feeding the fungus. Findings: As a result, a simulation of the designed system was obtained by a software supervisory control and data acquisition. Improvements: It was concluded that the proposed system is the ability to monitor and control environmental variables, described it above, in the greenhouse of eatable mushroom Orellana; and to adjust variables to a window it was verified that is sufficient control “on/ off”.
Keywords: Control, Greenhouse, Humidity, Pleurotus Ostreatus, Temperature, Supervision-Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA)
