wireless nodes were successfully tested with a combination of Vegetronix
soil moisture sensors and soil temperature sensors. Wireless sensors
provide the grower with incredible flexibility when selecting the
sensor location, or when moving the sensor to a new location is
needed. Since ZigSense™ are wireless, all expenses related to
rewiring of cables are reduced to nil dollars.
simplicity of adding other sensors to the wireless nodes and the
built in standard communications interface to other AG systems or a
standard PC make the ZigSense™ system one of the most flexible AG
monitoring and control systems currently available on the market.
is a line of wireless sensors utilizing ZigBee™ mesh network
technology as its core communications channel. Australian designed
and made, ZigSense™ wireless nodes establish a self-healing
network of spatially distributed sensors that cooperatively monitor
physical and environmental conditions. Data can be transferred to
standard SCADA, PLC and HMI stations via a specially developed
wireless nodes are built into a small robust polycarbonate IP65
enclosure. Designed for low power consumption, the nodes utilise
sleep mode to operate under battery power for a prolonged period of
time. Each ZigSense™ node can be interfaced to multiple sensors
including general IO devices and serial links.
communications gateway links between the wireless network of
ZigSense™ sensors and standard monitoring and control systems. A
ZigSense™ gateway uses Modbus/RTU or Modbus/TCP protocols as its
default communications link.
