Our own monitoring systems have evolved through many years of field work and the search for cost effective solutions. The core of the station is the data transmission unit (DTU) and this can be adapted for many different applications and easily upgraded after purchase.
The DTU is powered by a battery and solar panel, which provides power to the data logger. Data is transmitted via a 4G LTE modem with fall back capability for 3G and 2G communication. We log and send data from as little as every 10 minutes up to 6 hourly depending on the application. All data is uploaded to our secure server and available to view from your smartphone or computer.
New stations can be as simple or as complex as required and are all built to order.
THE MOST COMMON STATIONS ARE:
DTU with rain gauge and Sentek Drill & Drop moisture probe (field crop irrigation scheduling)
DTU with Sentek Drill & Drop moisture and salinity probe (TriSCAN) with water applied (water meter), run off (water meter or rain gauge) and EC. *This can be upgraded with software only to enable automation*For more details on automation please click here
DTU with Temperature and Humidity sensor ( Frost alerting or tunnel venting – text alerts)
DTU with Rain gauge (remote site monitoring)
