IRRIGATION SENSORS REDUCE WATER LOSS AND PROTECTS CROP
7Sense has developed a wireless irrigation control system that saves water, protects crops and frees up time for farmers. Using non-intrusive flow detection (international patent pending), the sensor detects any loss of water and alerts the farmer. The sensor gives farmers complete control of the irrigation process and decreases the need for manual monitoring. The sensor is easy to mount or retrofit to existing systems, meaning equipment can be modernised instead of replaced. It is also extremely simple to operate, as farmers only need to push one large button.
Using satellite navigation, the sensor also provides real-time information about where a sprinkler cart is, at which speed it is moving, and when it is expected to finish watering.
All the information is automatically fed into a farmer’s mobile device, which can easily be set up for different types of alerts.
Additionally, 7Sense also offers a Farm Field Sensor (i.e. wather station with soil rod and rain gauge) and a sensor system for storage monitoring.
