Farm Robot continued part 7



A nozzle is a device designed to control the direction or characteristics of a fluid flow (especially to increase velocity) as it exits (or enters) an enclosed chamber or pipe.

A nozzle is often a pipe or tube of varying cross sectional area and it can be used to direct or modify the flow of a fluid (liquid or gas).

Nozzles are frequently used to control the rate of flow, speed, direction, mass, shape, and/or the pressure of the stream that emerges from them.

In a nozzle, the velocity of fluid increases at the expense of its pressure energy.

The watering nozzle is a single 3D printed component with a few extra parts for magnetic coupling and electronic verification with the UTM.

It works as a simple diffuser nozzle by accepting a concentrated stream of water coming from the UTM and turning it into a gentle shower.

The watering system consisted of a solenoid valve, a series of reducer couplings and adapters, a series of connecting tubes, and the universal tool mount with the  water and nutrient mixing tip.
