A rugged station to monitor soil moisture and your flow meter to assist irrigation management and consent compliance. Options can include soil conductivity, soil temperature and/or rainfall measurement and alarms.
This station has been designed specifically for farmers and growers who require continuous monitoring of soil and/or pump flow conditions. The brief has been to combine scientific grade equipment into a package that is easy to install, economic and rugged enough to withstand New Zealand conditions. We are pretty proud to have achieved this in this package.
Flow measurement from a (user supplied) pulse output flow meter
Measurement of soil moisture, temperature & conductivity using research grade TDR sensor
