Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,178

1. A system for controlling and recognizing habitat components comprising:a main controller comprising a processor configured to execute program instructions, memory for storing a first set of program instructions as well as information associated with a set of habitat components;
a first manifold comprising a plurality of ports, wherein a first one of the plurality of ports is in communication with a first habitat component from the set of habitat components, and a second one of the plurality of ports in communication with the main controller; and
a second manifold in communication with the main controller via the first manifold, wherein the second manifold comprises a plurality of ports, wherein one of the plurality of ports is in communication with a second habitat component from the set of habitat components;
wherein upon connecting the first habitat component to the first manifold, the processor of the main controller is configured to recognize an identity of the first habitat component according to the information associated with the set of habitat components, and execute one or more program instructions from the first set of program instructions to control operation of the first habit component; and
wherein upon connecting the second habitat component to the second manifold, the processor of the main controller is configured to recognize an identity of the second habitat component according to the information associated with the set of habitat components, and execute one or more program instructions from the first set of program instructions to control an operation of the second habitat component.
