Soil and Weather Sensor

Sensor Cuaca dan Tanah

Overview

An agricultural sensor device which reads real-time data on the field and its surrounding such as weather and soil data. The device will read data from weather station and soil sensor probes then the data will be sent using GSM/GPRS connection to the cloud server.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A: This is by far the most common question we get.
The short answer is anywhere between 1 hectare to 5 hecares (2.5 – 12 Acres) But it varies!


The long answer is, it depends; on the following variables. Irrigation lines/segments, soil elevation differences, soil homogeneity and different crop regions. In addition, the purpose and motivation behind the installation is also important.

  If we need to see how the water propagates in the soil, we completely ignore the 1-5 hectare recommendation, and put sensors 1 meter (3 ft.) apart so that as the water spreads lateraly from the source, we use multiple sensors to see the drainage paths.

  If we need to verify that the irrication valves open and close correctly, sensors can be more sparse (depending on the irrigation line topology).

  Finally, in a classic installation, we recommend at least 2 sensors/datapoints, per variable that needs to be tested. If if there 2 irrigation lines and 2 types of soils, at least 4 sensors are needed.

A: Please contact our CS

A: Our sensors are meant to be as self-sustained and plug and play as possible. Only an occasional solar panel wipe and a general appearace inspection is needed.

Sometimes issues do arise however. When that happens we provide replacement parts or replace the sensors all together. If the owner is willing to self-repair the sensors, we offer support beyong the warranty period.

A: The sensors come with a 1 year warranty. However we continue to supply parts and service for the lifetime of the product. And in most cases we offer free replacement components if the customer is willing to service their unit.

A: Just like any farm equipment, the first line of defence is the farm’s own security.

Some of our sensors do come with a GPS option, however at this moment, the GPS updates the sensor’s location after each restart and once every week. If you purchase a GPS version of the sensor, there is a chance that some tracking functionality might be added at a later stage.

A: The sensors record and upload data depending on their battery level. At a full charged battery, the sensors combine multiple measurements every 15 minutes, and upload the measurements every 2 hours. If the sensor is not fully charged it will adjust its timings to save power. The sensor typically takes 1-3 days to fully charge from a low battery state. If there is not sunlight, the sensor can last between 1-2 months. Nodes can last longer on low light conditions.

A: The internal, non-removable battery stores enough energy for a sustainable operation of the sensor. If there is no sunlight, the Master sensor can last between 1-2 months. Nodes can last up to 3 months on low light conditions.

A: Depending on the installation and features required, there is a small monthly fee. This fee is mainly derrived from the SIM subscription, data storage and the service availability. Other features such as API and analytics also affect the monthly cost.
