Irrigation Monitoring System
Checking on the health of unmanned irrigation systems is essential to prevent regular trips to the field to determine if the system is still operating correctly or to immediately shutdown the system in event of a failure or breakdown of the system.
Various sensors measuring water flow, pressure, voltages and other variables are connected to a DNT900 radio module which then transmits these readings periodically to another DNT900 radio module embedded in a central master controller at the farm offices.
The host application then monitored these parameters and took appropriate action if the ranges were outside of accepted norms. In event of a failure the irrigation system and other equipment like the water pump can be switched off or restarted as necessary without having to physically go to the site.
Applicable Product Features
The DNT900 radio module’s multiple input/output ports, auto-reporting and ability to transmit data over large distances were some of the key features for the choice of this module.
