The Soil Scout solution is made up of a number of different elements that can be scaled to provide you with the optimal solution, whether you want to monitor a single Golf Course green, or multiple agricultural fields of 1000ha or more.
The building blocks of the solution are:
The HYDRA Scout measures temperature, salinity and moisture content, but we can integrate other sensors, including 3rd Party, combinations via FLEX Scout for custom projects.
Typically pole or building mounted, it can be located up to 1km / 1000 yards away, depending on site-specific characteristics. Alternatively it can be pole-mounted on in-field irrigation equipment such as pivots or lateral move systems.
The Base Station requires cellular coverage, and suitable data-enabled SIM card (not provided). Note that we currently do not support CDMA (Verizon).
By default, the ECHO comes with a stub antenna, but alternative antenna's, such as Omni or Yagi, can be used instead.
Cloud & Analytics
The data can be visualised and analysed in multiple ways, including via a Map Overlay. The Analytics platform incorporates notification and alarm functionalities, and an optional API capability.
See Analytics in the next section for more information.
