The Aquacom system is a network of Telemetry Field Units connected to sensors which provide data that can be used to help make informed business decisions resulting in improved productivity, quality and efficiency.

Sensors that can be connected to the Aquacom unit are,

  • Aquaflex sensors to provide soil moisture and temperature information
  • Air Temperature sensor
  • Rain gauge to show rain events and measure rain fall
  • Depth sensors to show water levels in wells or storage ponds
  • Flow meters which show the amount of water being used for irrigation, stock water etc.

The system is made up of 3 main components,

  • The sensors in the field
  • The Aquacom Field Unit
  • The Aquacom Base Unit

The Aquacom system manages the collection, storage and transmission of the data so it can be conveniently viewed on any PC connected to the Internet.

Utilizing the Aquacom system will allow you to operate efficiently using live up to date data which keeps you informed and allows you to run with optimized efficiency.

Features of an Aquacom Field Station

Aquacom Field units have a variety of potential applications and can be mains or solar powered allowing flexibility as to where these units can be installed. Options for connecting sensors to these units are also flexible,

  • Up to two Aquaflex sensors
  • An analogue input for air temperature or other standard sensor inputs, (eg water level)
  • Four digital inputs configurable as pulse counters or line state on time (eg flow meters or alarm)
  • SDI-12 input for connecting to a wide range of sensors
  • The Integrated Base Unit can also have the above sensors connected to it (only three digital inputs though)

The sensor data is stored in the Aquacom Field Unit until it is sent via radio to the Integrated Base Unit. From here the data is processed and sent to the web for you to view as a graph. The logging protocols comply with the standard required by many regional councils for compliance issues.
