The new biOrb AIR

Plants and animals are the natural antidote to the concrete desert. In today’s fully digitalised world, it is more important than ever to stay in touch with nature. After all, this is an intrinsic human need. With the biOrb AIR, you can now create your very own little tropical world. It is not just a terrarium in the home, but a real eye-catcher! 

About the biOrb AIR

How does it work?

As a modern interpretation of a classic terrarium, the biOrb AIR is the perfect combination of nature and technology.
 
The recreation of natural daylight, air movement and humidity creates the ideal automated environment for tropical plants and animals.

Which plants and animals?

There are no limits to your imagination here, provided the tropical plants do not grow too high and the size is suitable for the animals.
 
And thanks to the light from the LEDs, the biOrb AIR can be set up in any location, regardless of the lighting conditions.

How does the facility work?

The biOrb AIR is very easy to set up and is practically maintenance-free. Once it is set up, your plants and animals will thrive.
 
When the water supply is running low, your biOrb AIR reminds you to refill water by flashing discreetly.

Does the terrarium fog up or develop odours?

An integrated fan circulates the air inside the terrarium so that unsightly fogging of the walls is avoided.
 
With the help of a replaceable carbon filter, the air flowing in and out is cleaned and odours from the damp floor are neutralised.

The Equipment

biOrb AIR 60

LED lighting

 
With automatic 12-hour cycle that provides the necessary light for your plants to thrive and offers animals a natural day, night cycle.
6 LEDs produce a total luminous flux of 726 lumens, flowing at 350 mA.
 
Light temperature of 6,000 Kelvin
 
Each LED has an aperture angle of 80 degrees directed towards the centre of the tank.
 
The focal point of the LEDs has an illuminance of 1928 lux.

Air purification system

 
Prevents stagnation and condensation by drawing fresh air inside, circulating it and returning it to the outside through a replaceable carbon filter.
A reticulated, open-cell polyether-based polyurethane foam pre-treated with activated carbon.
 
These materials offer low pressure drops combined with the benefits of activated carbon without the usual handling problems that loose powder brings.

Automatic fog generation

 
Automatically triggered when humidity drops. A fine mist supplies the plants with moisture right down to the roots and provides sufficient humidity for the animals.
Output voltage: DC 24 V
 
Power: 13.9 W
 
Produces a fog volume of 200 ml/h
 
We recommend the use of water with a low dissolved solids content and a conductivity between 0.15~1.00 ms/cm
 
The ultrasonic atomizer produces an extremely fine mist with a droplet size of 2 μm~4 μm (diameter)

Water level indicator

 
Unobtrusive and conveniently readable display from the outside for checking the water level in the floor.

Capillary mat

 
Draws water upwards into the substrate and keeps it nice and moist without overwatering.
The green capillary mat is made of PP, PET and viscose. The traditional capillary mat combines an excellent capillary effect with a huge water storage capacity for subsoil irrigation.

Controlling the atmosphere in the biOrb AIR

 
To ensure that your plants and animals grow in the perfect environment, you can choose from three humidity settings and three fan speeds in the biOrb AIR.
Setting the humidity
 
1. low humidity – recommended for low planting and animals that require a humidity of up to 70 %.
 
2. medium humidity (Automatic) – recommended for medium planting and animals that require humidity between 75 and 80 %.
 
3. high humidity – recommended for intensive planting and animals that require high humidity.
 
The biOrb AIR is preset to level 2 (Automatic). To enter the menu and change the setting, first open the lid and briefly press the reset button. The lights will now flash twice to indicate the selected level (level 2); press the button again to move to the next level and the lights will flash the same number of times to confirm the level.
 
  • Level 1 = flashes once
  • Level 2 = flashes twice
  • Level 3 = flashes three times
 
When you close the lid, the setting is automatically saved.

To enter the menu and change the setting, first open the lid and press and hold the reset button until the lights dim; now press the reset button again briefly, the lights flash twice to indicate the selected level (level 2); press the button again to move to the next level and the lights flash the appropriate number of times to confirm the level.
 
  • Level 1 = flashes once

  • Level 3 = flashes three times

Warnings:
 
The lights flash on and off three times when the fog unit needs to be refilled. The lights are on continuously if the plug of the fogging unit has been incorrectly reinserted.
 
The internal atmosphere is continuously recirculated by a fan through an activated carbon filter. This creates the air movement that is vital for the plants and animals, and a small amount of fresh air is supplied from outside.
The biOrb AIR is a well thought-out, closed system in a spherical shape. It leaves nothing to be desired and sets an accent in the home. Keeping tropical plants and animals is child’s play. The terrarium is therefore suitable for both beginners and professionals. All the necessary technical components are integrated in the terrarium, so there is no ugly tangle of cables. This also puts the price into perspective, because an LED strip, an ultrasonic nebuliser and a tuned ventilation system are not bargains when bought separately.
