Wireless soil moisture transmitter
Knowing, with precision, if the quantity and frequency of the irrigation is optimum for each crop, is the basis of precision irrigation and the profitability of irrigated crops.
The PRX-SOIL transmitter for moisture sensors helps us to obtain this data. It has the capacity for up to 4 Watermark®-type sensors and sends information to the IProx Irrigation application, taking advantage of the same radio network used by the PRX-VALVE controllers
- Reading of up to 4 Watermark®-type sensors for each machine
- Radio communications with a base station connected to the controller.
- Mesh radio communications with up to 4 hops. Requires an IProx controller with a radio base station or another PRX-VALVE device in a radius of up to 2000 m, giving a total range of 8000 m between the pumping station’s IProx controller and the furthest PRX-VALVE device
PRX-SOIL provides the IProx Irrigation web application with precise data regarding the level of soil moisture, integrated with the rest of the information on the pumping stations, pivots, coverages, meteorology, etc.
Low operating cost thanks to its integrated solar panel and the economic long-lasting batteries.
From a sole base station connected to an IProx controller, it is possible to collect soil moisture data from up to 8km away.
