New SynField installation, remotely monitoring and controlling a drilling submersible pump and the precision irrigation system at an olive grove of 60 acres in Elea, Laconia.
The installation is based on a SynField X3 node, a number of digital relays and an industrial 12 bar pressure sensor. The innovation in this installation is that two relays have been used to start the drilling submersible pump, but each one drives a different timer; so two independent timers record when the drilling has started with each relay, enabling precise accounting of the irrigation time and water/electricity consumed. The node is interconnected via the cellular GPRS/NB-IoT network and power supplied by an external transformer.
