Manage Your

Irrigation Soil Growth

Use Aquaflex to optimise your soil moisture and soil temperature

Aquaflex is a vital part of any irrigation system which measures two primary variables that control plant growth:

  • Soil Water
  • Soil Temperature

The Aquaflex soil moisture sensor enables you to balance the soil moisture and soil temperature to maximise growth and quality – a delicate balancing act only possible with the correct data.

Avoid Over-Watering
Over watering wastes water, energy and soluble nutrients – all of which you are paying for.
Optimise Plant Production
Plant production can be improved by balancing soil temperatures and irrigation application.
Environmental Stewardship
Instigating a soil moisture monitoring system will help you prove your environmental management systems are robust.
Assist with difficult Irrigation Management Decisions
Without accurate soil moisture data is almost impossible to determine the current situation and what the best course of action may be.

AQUAFLEX uses a unique measurement technique with a 3m (10’) long flexible tape to provide measurement of 6 litres (370 cubic inches) of soil.  It is laid in the soil horizontally or at a slight angle at the depth (or depths) of interest. The sensor averages over the full length of the sensor, this spatial averaging provides very accurate moisture readings.

AQUAFLEX is the only Soil Moisture Sensor that overcomes the problems of measuring soil moisture content at one point only in a relatively small amount of soil.

AQUAFLEX saves:

  • Water
  • Energy
  • Fertilisers

AQUAFLEX improves:

  • Yield
  • Quality

Sensor Kits

Aquaflex Smart

Aquaflex
The Aquaflex Smart kit contains the Bluetooth enabled Aquaflex Smart Hub, a single Aquaflex Soil Sensor and all the parts needed to get you monitoring your soil conditions.
The Smart Hub can be expanded to have the following options.

  • An additional Aquaflex Sensor (a maximum of two Aquaflex Sensors can be connected)
  • Air temperature sensor
  • Electronic rain gauge

Aquacom Telemetry

Aquaflex

The Aquacom system is made up from three core parts.

  • Field Sensors (e.g. Aquaflex Soil Moisture Sensors, Flow Meters, Bore Depth Sensors, Rain Gauges etc)
  • One or more Aquacom Field Units
  • An Aquacom Base Unit

The Aquacom system is a vital part of any Farm Management system and enables increased yield and quality by collecting the data needed to make informed decisions.

Aquaflex Sensors

Aquaflex with SDI-12

Aquaflex
SDI-12 is a serial communication protocol for sensors.
The Aquaflex SDI-12 communication is done in accordance with the SDI-12 Standard,
Version 1.3.

Aquaflex with 4-20mA

Aquaflex
The Sensor has two separate 4 to 20mA outputs of soil moisture (in volumetric percent), and soil temperature.
These outputs facilitate easy connection to dataloggers, irrigation controllers, telemetry systems etc.

Aquaflex with Pulse

Aquaflex
The Aquaflex Sensor produces two pulse outputs, representing volumetric soil moisture and temperature respectively.
